Homeownership adds a lot to your plate. Occasionally too much. Projects seem to multiply and sometimes simple tasks, like changing your air filter, fall to the wayside. That shouldn’t be a big deal, 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 expensive repairs:
- Notice unusual sounds from your air conditioner
You become accustomed to all the sounds that ordinarily occur in your house, but always be sure to pay attention 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 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 Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning can help you nip a problem in the bud before it turns into a larger problem.
- 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 dirty air filter blocks air flow and makes your air conditioner 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 grimy and set a reminder to switch it regularly.
- Schedule regular maintenance
To guarantee it is operating at its best, your air conditioner requires regular maintenance just like your car does. If you put off this preventive maintenance, it could cost you a lot of issues that could’ve easily been identified 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 avoid AC repairs. If you want to learn additional ways to help prevent AC repairs, call Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning in Pflugerville at 512-355-1482.
