Nowadays, our customers are more knowledgeable about air conditioning. Many maintenance items, like changing air filters, can be done by a homeowner. However, there are many times when a professional is needed to correctly assess the issue. We have listed some major misconceptions below to help our customers better understand their air conditioner.

Common AC Misconceptions:

My air conditioner is running well, so I do not need to do the maintenance this year to my system.

  • Annual inspection required regardless of how the unit functioning.

If you set your thermostat at a lower temperature, my home will cool down faster.

  • Your ac will run until the temperature setting is reached.

You must top off the AC refrigerant when it is low.

  • Refrigerant is only needed within your ac unit when there is a leak. Otherwise, the refrigerant circulates throughout the system and rarely needs replacement or additional product added.

My newly replaced AC Filter is cleaning my home’s air.

  • Air filters protect the interior of the air conditioner and prevent dust and particles to be circulated throughout the home.

Ice on a part of my air conditioner is normal.

  • Ice should never appear in any area of your unit. This is a sign of a possibly serious problem and a professional should be called immediately.
