Nobody wants to have to need AC repair, especially during the hottest days of the year. However, many homeowners inadvertently do the very things that will make it more likely that they’ll need AC repair more often than is typical. Each of the following three things are avoidable, and you can take steps to do so now so that you do not face repeated AC repair bills year after year:
- Check the capacity – It is not uncommon for homes to be built with AC units that just barely pass building codes, but do not effectively cool the amount of square footage the home entails. Furthermore, if the owner or the previous owner added a room, the AC unit may be having to work far too hard than intended. This leads to AC repair more often. Correct this by either adding another zone and AC unit or replacing yours with a properly sized unit.
- Location matters – Most of the time, builders do get the location of the AC unit right. Sometimes, they go for the best place aesthetically without considering whether the location will keep the AC unit safe from harm and out of extreme sun and moisture. It is not always an easy fix to remedy a location mistake, but it will save you in the long run.
- Maintenance – Just as you must maintain your vehicle to get the most trouble-free miles, you must also maintain your AC system if you want to avoid AC repair issues. It will also help your unit run more efficiently, thereby saving you money in utility costs.
