Homeownership puts a lot on your plate. Oftentimes too much. Projects seem to accumulate and sometimes simple tasks, like changing your air filter, slip through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a big deal, 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 expensive repairs:
- Notice unusual sounds from your air conditioner
You become accustomed to all the sounds that regularly occur in your house, but always be sure to take notice if your air conditioner seems to be making unusual sounds. It may be an odd hum or rattling, or another sound, but if it’s not a sound you’re accustomed to hearing, have it checked out. If you avoid it, you’ll have a greater chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Titan Heating & Air Conditioning can help you nip a problem in the bud before it turns into a bigger problem.
- Keep your air filter clean
It’s not hard to forget to clean or change your air filter, but it’s detrimental for your air conditioner. A grimy air filter blocks air flow and that leads to your air conditioner running harder than it should. That makes it less effective and could cause your utility bills to increase. Make note of how quickly your filter becomes clogged and set a reminder to change it regularly.
- Schedule regular maintenance
To ensure it is operating at its best, your air conditioner depends upon annual maintenance just like your car does. If you put off this preventive maintenance, it could cost you a lot of problems that could’ve easily been discovered 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 avoid AC repairs. If you want to learn additional ways to help prevent AC repairs, call Titan Heating & Air Conditioning in Central Point at 541-286-6617.
