A Few Things You’re Doing Wrong with Your AC

hand drawing check box on a white background

When it comes to running your air conditioner, you might not even think about how you’re doing it. It’s likely that you’ve had air conditioners in your home your entire life. You know how to run this system. It’s something that you’ve done forever.

Today, we want to shake things up when it comes to your perspective on this. You might know how to run your air conditioner, but you should ask yourself if you know how to run your air conditioner well. We want you to have the best HVAC in Smyrna, TN possible. We have all the necessary things to keep your air conditioner in the best shape.

Stop Doing This…

Here are a few things that you might be doing that you should stop as soon as possible:

1.      Skipping Maintenance Appointments

Maintenance is something you should do annually for both your heating and air conditioning systems. Maintenance is a great idea because it prepares your HVAC system for the season ahead. We suggest that you handle your heating maintenance in the fall and your air conditioning maintenance in the spring for optimal results. Even if you’re a little behind the curve, late maintenance is better than none.

2.      Putting Off Necessary Upgrades

If you know that your air conditioner or heater is aging, then don’t hurt your comfort even further by putting off necessary upgrades. It’s important to upgrade your heater or your air conditioner about once every 10-15 years. If you have a unit that’s somewhat of a dinosaur, you should talk to our professionals and get the process of upgrading started.

3.      Neglecting Your Thermostat

Your thermostat should be upgraded about once every decade just like an HVAC system. We can’t even tell you how many times we walk into homes and see a new, top-of-the-line air conditioner or heater paired with an old thermostat. An old thermostat will wear down your HVAC system with time and you’ll never get truly efficient operation.

4.      Ignoring Your Ducts

Have you noticed your airflow decreasing? What about some weird noises coming from your ducts? Problems like these are issues that you should address. If you don’t, then you’re choosing to ignore your ducts and problems bubbling up underneath the surface. Contact a professional for your duct services as soon as you notice them.

5.      Running Your Unit with a Dirty Air Filter

Another thing you should do for your HVAC system is replace your filter once every three months. Replacing your filter is essential. It’s a simple switch a homeowner can make, but it’s a switch that makes a big difference in the way that you run your HVAC system.

A dirty air filter quickly becomes a detriment to your system. If you allow it to run with an old air filter for a while, you’re going to notice it wearing down your system. This is one of the easiest ways to create a problem for your HVAC system.
