5 Air Conditioning Management Mistakes to Avoid for New Homeowners


As summer approaches, there’s no need to reiterate the fact that your home needs a smoothly-running air condition system. Without that, you’ll soon be sweating in your sheets as you try and fail every day to get a good night’s rest.

In this article, we’ll educate you on five of the most common air conditioning management mistakes so that you don’t accidentally self-sabotage the HVAC system that powers your household.

1. Not Following the Maintenance Schedule

Probably the most common mistake that homeowners make with their AC unit is simply failing to follow the recommended maintenance schedule. Each unit that is produced has an approximate lifetime as well as recommended maintenance tasks in order to keep the unit running in good shape.

If you want to get the maximum lifetime possible out of your unit, you must stick religiously to that maintenance schedule. The unit was not designed to operate outside of that schedule, and could easily fail.

2. Picking a Poor Location for Your Unit

Believe it or not, not all AC unit locations were created equal.

You generally want to put your AC unit on a wall that won’t face the sun when it is beating down during the heat of the day. That will prevent your AC from working too hard during the summer, keeping it from overextending its parts. Pretty soon, you might be trying to get multiple quotes on a new air conditioning system.

3. Not Replacing the Air Filter

Replacing the air filter is one of the simplest maintenance tasks that you can do on your AC unit. And yet, many new homeowners fail to get this done!

Simply change out the air filter according to the maintenance schedule that should have come along with your AC unit.

4. Failing to Clean Fins and Coils

The AC’s fins and coils are how it disperses heat buildup in the system. If you want the AC unit to be able to dissipate heat and not send that into the home, then you need to clean those fins and coils.

Otherwise, the dirt and grime on those units could easily cause the heat buildup to keep increasing, reducing the overall efficiency of the unit.

5. Forgetting the Windows

Many homeowners forget that windows are the most significant way that the summer heat leaches into your home. This combats the work that the AC unit is trying to do by removing heat from your household.

To ensure that your AC works at the best possible efficiency, make sure that the blinds on your windows are closed to reduce the capacity of heat transfer into your home.

Air Conditioning Management Mistakes to Avoid

There you have it — now that you know these air conditioning management mistakes to avoid, you’ll be able to take better care of your house’s HVAC system with a simple maintenance schedule that doesn’t take much time to implement. You’ll ensure a long lifetime for your AC unit without any significant issues.
