Homeownership is a lot of work. Occasionally too much. Projects seem to accumulate and sometimes small tasks, like changing your air filter, fall to the wayside. That shouldn’t be a huge deal, right? Wrong. Something that small could lead to your needing an AC repair. There are some things you should keep in mind to do when it comes to your air conditioner that could save you from potentially costly repairs:

  1. Notice unusual sounds from your air conditioner
    You get used to all the sounds that regularly occur in your house, but always be sure to pay attention if your air conditioner seems to be making unusual sounds. It may be an odd hum or rattling, or another sound, but if it’s not a sound you’re accustomed to hearing, have it checked out. If you avoid it, you’ll have a higher chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at E B Air Conditioning & Heating Service can help you nip a problem in the bud before it turns into a massive problem.
  2. Keep your air filter clean
    It’s really easy to forget to clean or change your air filter, but it’s detrimental for your air conditioner. A clogged air filter blocks air flow and that leads to your air conditioner running harder than it should. That makes it less effective and could raise your utility bills. Make note of how quickly your filter becomes clogged and set a reminder to change it regularly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance
    To guarantee it is operating at its best, your air conditioner needs routine maintenance just like your car does. If you postpone this preventive maintenance, it could cost you a lot of troubles that could’ve easily been detected during a maintenance appointment turn into bigger issues that lead to an AC repair.
