Projects seem to multiply and sometimes small tasks, like changing your air filter, slip through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a big deal, right? Wrong. Something that seemingly insignificant 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 expensive repairs: Notice unusual sounds from your air conditioner You become familiar with all the sounds that ordinarily occur in your house, but always be sure to take notice if your air conditioner seems to be making unusual sounds. It may be an odd hum or rattling, or another sound, but if it’s not a sound you normally hear, have it checked out. If you avoid it, you’ll have a higher chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at All Seasons Heating & A/C Co can help you address a small problem before it turns into a bigger problem. Keep your air filter clean It’s so easy to forget to clean or change your air filter, but it’s not good 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. Make note of how quickly your filter becomes clogged and set a reminder to change it regularly. Schedule regular maintenance To make certain 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 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.
