Homeownership is a lot of work. Occasionally too much. Projects seem to multiply and sometimes easy tasks, like changing your air filter, slip through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a problem, right? Wrong. Something that seemingly insignificant could be the catalyst to your needing an AC repair. There are a few things you should never forget 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 get used to all the sounds that ordinarily occur in your house, but always be sure to take note if your air conditioner begins making unusual sounds. It may be an odd hum or rattling, or another sound, but if it’s not a sound you’re used to hearing, have it checked out. If you neglect it, you’ll have a higher chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at E.B. Air, LLC can help you address a small problem before it turns into a massive problem.
- Keep your air filter clean
It’s so easy to forget to clean or change your air filter, but it’s detrimental for your air conditioner. A grimy air filter blocks air flow and causes your air conditioner to work harder than it needs to. That makes it less effective and could lead to an increase in your utility bills. Make note of 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 routine 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 detected during a maintenance appointment turn into substantial issues that lead to an AC repair.
It makes no difference if your air conditioner is new or if you’ve had it for years, you can do these things to avoid AC repairs. If you want to learn additional ways to help prevent AC repairs, call E.B. Air, LLC in East Bernard at 979-335-4262.
