When it comes to air conditioning units, we pay less attention, and we tend to think that as long as it is running, it’s all good. However, this is simply not the case. There are things that you simply should not do and believe when dealing with an air conditioning unit.
And today, Dilling Heating & Cooling, a Bessemer AC company, will discuss the mistakes that you have to avoid when it comes to your AC.
You risk not cleaning your filters
This is one of the most common reasons air conditioning units break apart easily. Filters should be changed or cleaned at least once every three months to make sure that the air that is coming into your home is clean and fresh.
Not changing or cleaning your AC’s filter will lead to poor airflow, as well as your unit’s evaporator coil freezing up.
You disregard your AC’s annual servicing
You should have your air conditioning unit checked by a professional at least once every year. Aside from helping you save money when it comes to energy bills, this will also help your AC last by keeping it clean and in proper condition.
If you are not sure how to clean your AC yourself or you feel like you are going to make everything worse instead of keeping it in mint condition, then go ahead and call a professional to service it.
Your thermostat is not in the right position
If your thermostat is placed somewhere that’s hot and blocked, then it might be reading the room’s temperature wrong. This will make it work double or triple and can do damage to your AC.
Make sure to place it somewhere that has a lot of space, avoid putting it near a door or window, and avoid blocking it with things such as bookshelves and cabinets.
Avoid these mistakes and you will surely get the most out of your AC. Good luck!
