Checking for AC Repair

3 Things Homeowners Dont Do That Leads to AC Repair

Homeownership is a lot of work. Occasionally too much. Projects seem to grow larger than originally planned and sometimes easy tasks, like changing your air filter, slip through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a huge deal, right? Wrong. Something that simple 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 costly repairs:

  1. Notice unusual sounds from your air conditioner
    You become familiar with all the sounds that normally occur in your house, but always be sure to take notice if your air conditioner starts making unusual sounds. It may be a strange 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 an increased chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Air Temperature Control can help you nip a problem in the bud before it turns into a bigger 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 dirty 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 depends upon annual maintenance just like your car does. If you delay this preventive maintenance, it could cost you a lot of problems that could’ve easily been identified 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. If you want to learn more ways to help prevent AC repairs, call Air Temperature Control in Macon at 478-202-3170.
