air-conditioner-techTypically, we spend our time on this blog talking about ways you can preserve the health of your climate control systems. In the interests of changing things up, however, and because reverse psychology is always fun, we decided to spend this blog talking about some great ways you can absolutely destroy your air conditioner. If you want to have to replace your system years earlier than you would otherwise have to, follow the awful tips below.

Refuse to Schedule Preventive Maintenance

Preventive maintenance is the single best thing you can do for the health of your air conditioner. Air conditioning problems develop slowly, and most homeowners don’t even realize their systems are experiencing issues until the system has already started to accumulate damage. The best way to prevent this from happening is to schedule maintenance at least once a year.

Preventive maintenance gives your technician the opportunity to isolate any developing problems in the system, and fix them before they have the chance to cause any damage. This increases the efficiency of the system, and extends its lifespan. So if you want to kill off your air conditioner as quickly as possible, the best thing to do is to avoid scheduling preventive maintenance at all costs.

Ignore Signs That Your System Is in Trouble

Even with preventive maintenance, there is no guarantee the system will remain healthy. There is still a pretty good chance that at some point the air conditioner will develop some sort of malfunction between maintenance appointments. Knowing the signs and reacting quickly are key to preserving the health of your air conditioner.

There are many possible symptoms that indicate a problem with your AC. Odd noises are often an indication something isn’t right in the system. What exactly is wrong, and how severe it is, will depend on the noise. You’ll need to have a professional examine the system to know for certain.

Short cycling is another major sign you need to call for repairs as soon as possible. This is when your air conditioner turns itself on and off every couple of minutes instead of completing a full cooling cycle. Short cycling increases the amount of wear and tear the system accumulates over time, making it more likely to break down.

Falling output is another sign your air conditioner is not doing well for some reason. This could indicate any number of issues, including a clogged air filter or a refrigerant leak. Regardless, it’s something that indicates a need for immediate repairs. That is, it would if you weren’t trying to destroy your air conditioner as thoroughly as possible. Since that’s totally what we assume you’re trying to do in this particular article, then we’re going to suggest you avoid calling for repairs and just let whatever is wrong with your air conditioner slowly destroy it.
