Checking for AC Repair

3 Things Homeowners Dont Do That Leads to AC Repair

Homeownership is a lot of work. Oftentimes too much. Projects seem to grow larger than originally planned and sometimes easy tasks, like changing your air filter, fall to the wayside. That shouldn’t be a problem, right? Wrong. Something that seemingly insignificant could be the catalyst 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:

  1. 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 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 Local HVAC Repair & Service can help you address a small problem before it turns into a larger problem.
  2. 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 dirty air filter blocks air flow and that leads to your air conditioner running harder than it should. That makes it less effective and could raise your utility bills. Pay attention to how quickly your filter becomes clogged and set a reminder to change it regularly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance
    To ensure it is operating at its best, your air conditioner depends upon annual 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 identified during a maintenance appointment turn into substantial issues that lead to an AC repair.

It makes no difference if 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 Local HVAC Repair & Service in Wheeling at 224-300-4806.
