Homeownership is a lot of work. Sometimes too much. Projects seem to grow larger than originally planned and sometimes small tasks, like changing your air filter, slip through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a problem, right? Wrong. Something that simple could lead to your needing an AC repair. There are a few things you should always remember to do when it comes to your air conditioner that could save you from potentially pricey repairs:
- Notice unusual sounds from your air conditioner
You become familiar with all the sounds that ordinarily occur in your house, but always be sure to pay attention if your air conditioner starts making unusual sounds. It may be a bizarre hum or rattling, or another sound, but if it’s not a sound you’re used to hearing, have it checked out. If you avoid it, you’ll have a higher chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Air Service Co. can help you nip a problem in the bud before it turns into a larger problem.
- Keep your air filter clean
It’s so easy to forget to clean or change your air filter, but it’s not good for your air conditioner. A grimy air filter blocks air flow and that leads to your air conditioner running harder than it should. That makes it less effective and could cause your utility bills to increase. Keep an eye on how quickly your filter becomes clogged and set a reminder to switch it regularly.
- Schedule regular maintenance
To guarantee it is operating at its best, your air conditioner depends upon regular maintenance just like your car does. If you postpone this preventive maintenance, it could cost you a lot of problems that could’ve easily been identified during a maintenance appointment turn into bigger issues that lead to an AC repair.
Whether your air conditioner is new or if you’ve had it for years, you can do these things to escape AC repairs. If you want to learn more ways to help prevent AC repairs, call Air Service Co. in Muldrow at 918-212-8943.
