3 Things Homeowners Don’t Do That Leads to AC Repair08/05/2015 Homeownership puts a lot on your plate. Occasionally too much. Projects seem to accumulate and sometimes easy tasks, like changing your air filter, slip through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a big deal, right? Wrong. Something that small could be the catalyst 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 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 pay attention if your air conditioner starts making unusual sounds. It may be an odd hum or rattling, or another sound, but if it’s not a sound you’re used to hearing, have it checked out. If you ignore it, you’ll have an increased chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Nisair Air Conditioning 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 not good for your air conditioner. A grimy air filter blocks air flow and makes your air conditioner work harder than it needs to. That makes it less effective and could lead to an increase in your utility bills. Pay attention to how quickly your filter becomes dirty and set a reminder to change it regularly. Schedule regular maintenance To ensure it is operating at its best, your air conditioner needs 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 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 avoid AC repairs.
