Checking for AC Repair

3 Things Homeowners Dont Do That Leads to AC Repair

Homeownership adds a lot to your plate. Occasionally too much. Projects seem to multiply and sometimes easy tasks, like changing your air filter, fall through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a huge deal, right? Wrong. Something that small could be the catalyst to your needing an AC repair. There are a few things you should keep in mind to do when it comes to your air conditioner that could save you from potentially pricey repairs:

  1. 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 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 Rescue Heating & Air can help you get in front of a small problem before it turns into a bigger problem.
  2. Keep your air filter clean
    It’s so easy to forget to clean or change your air filter, but it’s bad for your air conditioner. A clogged air filter blocks air flow and that leads to your air conditioner running harder than it should. That makes it less effective and could raise your utility bills. Keep an eye on how quickly your filter becomes dirty and set a reminder to change it regularly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance
    To guarantee 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 issues that could’ve easily been identified 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 additional ways to help prevent AC repairs, call Rescue Heating & Air in Alice at 361-265-4371.
