Homeownership is a lot of work. Sometimes too much. Projects seem to grow larger than originally planned and sometimes simple tasks, like changing your air filter, fall 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 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 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 bizarre hum or rattling, or another sound, but if it’s not a sound you’re accustomed to hearing, have it checked out. If you ignore it, you’ll have an increased chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Eco Fresh HVAC Inc. can help you address a small problem before it turns into a massive problem.
  2. Keep your air filter clean
    It’s so easy to forget to clean or change your air filter, but it’s not good 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 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 make certain 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 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 escape AC repairs.
