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 multiply and sometimes easy tasks, like changing your air filter, fall through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a big deal, right? Wrong. Something that seemingly insignificant could be the catalyst to your needing an AC repair. There are a couple 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 greater chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces can help you get in front of a small problem before it turns into a massive problem.
  2. 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 dirty 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. 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 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 additional ways to help prevent AC repairs, call Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces in Alliance at 308-646-3827.
