When was the last time you sat down and had a heart-to-heart conversation with your air conditioner about its needs?
If you answered anything but “never,” then your unit might need much more than standard air conditioning repairs.
At Comfort Pros Heating and Cooling, we’ve worked with enough air conditioning systems to know what they need, even if they’re not able to voice it. In today’s post, we’re going to discuss a few of the most common things your air conditioner would tell you if it could talk.
We know this probably isn’t the air conditioning blog you were expecting, but lending us your imagination and taking the message to heart can go a long way toward keeping you and your family comfortable as summer draws closer.
Please, Don’t Set Me Low
Many people mistakenly believe that setting the thermostat lower than they actually want it will cool their home faster.
What it will do, however, is waste energy that could have been better spent maintaining a comfortable temperature throughout the day. Setting your thermostat to a temperature that’s lower than what you actually want can also put undue strain on your air conditioner, especially if there is a drastic difference between the outdoor and indoor temperatures.
What’s worse, you might also forget to change the settings as you go about your day. Take it easy on your air conditioner and set your thermostat to the temperature you want.
If I’m Making Noise, I’m Not Happy
Strange noises aren’t the equivalent of an aging home or standard wear and tear — they’re much more serious and are often indicative of a mechanical problem that needs to be addressed immediately. If you want to personify your air conditioner in this situation, think of the screeches, bangs, bumps, and other odd noises as your unit asking to see a doctor in a less-than-pleasant manner.
I’d Like to Retire
Air conditioners come and go, usually within a span of 15 to 25 years. Let your unit retire when it’s ready, and try not to be too sad when you need to invest in air conditioning installation. Above all else, your air conditioner’s job is to keep your home cool and comfortable. Part of fulfilling that duty is passing the torch to a newer model when it’s time for a change.
