Checking for AC Repair

3 Things Homeowners Dont Do That Leads to AC Repair

Homeownership puts a lot on your plate. Sometimes too much. Projects seem to accumulate and sometimes simple tasks, like changing your air filter, fall 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 a few things you should keep in mind 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 familiar with all the sounds that ordinarily occur in your house, but always be sure to take notice if your air conditioner begins making unusual sounds. It may be a strange hum or rattling, or another sound, but if it’s not a sound you’re accustomed to hearing, have it checked out. If you neglect it, you’ll have a higher chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Jack's Refrigeration Heating and Cooling can help you nip a problem in the bud 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 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 raise your utility bills. Make note of how quickly your filter becomes clogged and set a reminder to swap it regularly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance
    To make certain 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 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 avoid AC repairs. If you want to learn more ways to help prevent AC repairs, call Jack's Refrigeration Heating and Cooling in Alliance at 308-646-3827.
