Air Conditioning Repair Tip: Simple Changes to Keep Your AC Working Right

Occasional problems with your air conditioning system are to be expected. No AC is perfect. That being said, a some of the service calls we receive for  air conditioning repairs could have been avoided with some simple changes to usage habits. A lot of North Potomac, MD homeowners fail to realize that the way in which they use their air conditioning system, or misuse it, are actually doing harm to the system. The air conditioning repair pros at Tuckers Air Conditioning & Heating have some advice for you about how to get the most consistent, reliable performance possible from your AC. Make these simple changes and get the cooling performance that you need this summer.

One way in which homeowners put their air conditioner at risk is by not changing their air filter regularly. You must understand that your air conditioner may be operational while still suffering from issues which can lead to serious problems. A dirty air filter may not cause your AC to break down right away, but it will force it to work harder in order to compensate for the increased airflow resistance caused by the dirty filter. Plus, the dirt and debris that may bypass a dirty filter can accumulate on the inner components of your HVAC system, reducing efficiency and the effectiveness with which it cools your home.

Another way in which you can keep your air conditioning system operating properly is simply to pick up the phone and schedule routine air conditioning maintenance. There are a number of different components within your air conditioning system, and if any of these components are compromised then your system as a whole will suffer. Any problems with a lack of lubrication, faulty electrical contacts or even tears and dirt in your air ducts can lead to a subpar air conditioning performance. Keep up with routine maintenance to keep your AC in great working condition.
