Checking for AC Repair

3 Things Homeowners Dont Do That Leads to AC Repair

Homeownership adds a lot to your plate. Oftentimes too much. Projects seem to accumulate 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 lead to your needing an AC repair. There are a couple things you should always remember 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 become familiar with all the sounds that normally occur in your house, but always be sure to take notice if your air conditioner seems to be making unusual sounds. It may be a bizarre hum or rattling, or another sound, but if it’s not a sound you normally hear, have it checked out. If you neglect it, you’ll have a higher chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Air-Right Energy Design, Inc. can help you get in front of a small problem before it turns into a massive problem.
  2. 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 clogged 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. Keep an eye on how quickly your filter becomes dirty and set a reminder to switch it regularly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance
    To make certain 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 troubles that could’ve easily been detected during a maintenance appointment turn into substantial issues that lead to an AC repair.
