Homeownership puts a lot on your plate. Occasionally too much. Projects seem to multiply and sometimes small tasks, like changing your air filter, fall to the wayside. That shouldn’t be a problem, right? Wrong. Something that simple could lead to your needing an AC repair. There are a couple things you should always remember 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 regularly occur in your house, but always be sure to take note 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 a higher chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at House of Heating Incorporated can help you nip a problem in the bud before it turns into a larger 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 grimy air filter blocks air flow and causes your air conditioner to 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 depends upon annual maintenance just like your car does. If you postpone this preventive maintenance, it could cost you a lot of issues that could’ve easily been detected 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 escape AC repairs. If you want to learn more ways to help prevent AC repairs, call House of Heating Incorporated in Marshfield at 888-384-3163.
