Homeownership is a lot of work. Oftentimes too much. Projects seem to multiply and sometimes easy tasks, like changing your air filter, slip through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a huge deal, right? Wrong. Something that seemingly insignificant could be the catalyst 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 expensive repairs:
- Notice unusual sounds from your air conditioner
You become accustomed to all the sounds that regularly 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 ignore it, you’ll have an increased chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Premium Air Services LLC can help you get in front of a small problem 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 bad 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 cause your utility bills to increase. Pay attention to 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 requires routine maintenance just like your car does. If you delay this preventive maintenance, it could cost you a lot of issues that could’ve easily been discovered during a maintenance appointment turn into bigger issues that lead to an AC repair.
Whether 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 some more tips to help prevent AC repairs, call Premium Air Services LLC in Tomball at 713-364-9957.
