Homeownership is a lot of work. Sometimes too much. Projects seem to accumulate and sometimes easy tasks, like changing your air filter, slip through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a big deal, right? Wrong. Something that seemingly insignificant could start you on the path to 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 accustomed to 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 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 an increased chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. can help you nip a problem in the bud before it turns into a larger problem.
- 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 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. Pay attention to how quickly your filter becomes grimy and set a reminder to swap it regularly.
- Schedule regular maintenance
To guarantee it is operating at its best, your air conditioner needs annual maintenance just like your car does. If you delay this preventive maintenance, it could cost you a lot of troubles that could’ve easily been discovered during a maintenance appointment turn into substantial issues that lead to an AC repair.
