Checking for AC Repair

3 Things Homeowners Dont Do That Leads to AC Repair

Homeownership puts a lot on your plate. Occasionally too much. Projects seem to accumulate and sometimes easy tasks, like changing your air filter, fall to the wayside. That shouldn’t be a huge deal, right? Wrong. Something that simple could start you on the path to needing an AC repair. There are a few 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 get used to all the sounds that normally occur in your house, but always be sure to pay attention if your air conditioner seems to be making unusual sounds. It may be a strange hum or rattling, or another sound, but if it’s not a sound you’re used to hearing, have it checked out. If you neglect it, you’ll have an increased chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Anderson Heating & A/C can help you nip a problem in the bud before it turns into a larger problem.
  2. Keep your air filter clean
    It’s so easy to forget to clean or change your air filter, but it’s detrimental 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 cause your utility bills to increase. Make note of how quickly your filter becomes dirty and set a reminder to switch it regularly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance
    To ensure it is operating at its best, your air conditioner requires routine maintenance just like your car does. If you put off this preventive maintenance, it could cost you a lot of issues 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 fend off AC repairs. If you want to learn additional ways to help prevent AC repairs, call Anderson Heating & A/C in Carson City at 775-230-7628.
