Homeownership is a lot of work. Sometimes too much. Projects seem to grow larger than originally planned and sometimes simple tasks, like changing your air filter, slip through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a problem, right? Wrong. Something that small could lead to your needing an AC repair. There are some 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 normally occur in your house, but always be sure to take notice if your air conditioner starts making unusual sounds. It may be a strange 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 A2Z Air Inc can help you address a small problem before it turns into a massive problem.
- Keep your air filter clean
It’s not hard 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 raise your utility bills. Make note of how quickly your filter becomes clogged and set a reminder to switch it regularly.
- Schedule regular maintenance
To ensure it is operating at its best, your air conditioner requires annual 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 larger issues that lead to an AC repair.
No matter if your air conditioner is new or if you’ve had it for years, you can do these things to fend off AC repairs. If you want to learn additional ways to help prevent AC repairs, call A2Z Air Inc in Boynton Beach at 561-270-6228.
