The Atlanta summer does not make it easy on your air conditioning system with high levels of heat and humidity. But there are other factors to consider as well, including how you operate and take care of (and neglect) your AC. In today’s post, we’d like to look at several common mistakes that can damage your AC. Call South Air today for all of your Atlanta air conditioning repair needs.
- Failing to replace the air filter regularly: One of the most common problems that air conditioning systems face is dirt, dust, and other debris. This is precisely the reason why your HVAC system is equipped with an air filter. This filter is not for indoor air quality reasons, although it does have that side effect. Its principal purpose is to prevent the accumulation of dust and other debris on sensitive system components. These can lead to heat dissipation and absorption problems with the coils that are necessary to cooling, as well as other system imbalances that reduce efficiency and performance.
- Avoiding professional routine maintenance: Some homeowners are under the false impression that they can stop thinking about their air conditioning systems once they have been installed. In fact, just like your car or other parts of your home, your AC needs professional maintenance to be kept in good working condition. Considering the importance that your cool air plays during the summer, a cost-effective routine maintenance program is the best way to ensure that it is clean and tuned-up by a professional technician regularly.
If you have any doubts about your air conditioning system, or think that there may be something wrong with its operation, do not hesitate to get in touch with an Atlanta air conditioning repair professional at South Air. We can get your system back up and running in no time.
