Checking for AC Repair

3 Things Homeowners Dont Do That Leads to AC Repair

Homeownership puts a lot on your plate. Oftentimes too much. Projects seem to grow larger than originally planned and sometimes simple tasks, like changing your air filter, slip through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a problem, right? Wrong. Something that seemingly insignificant could start you on the path to needing an AC repair. There are some 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 accustomed to all the sounds that ordinarily 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 normally hear, have it checked out. If you ignore it, you’ll have a higher chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Cool Air Solutions 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 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. Pay attention to how quickly your filter becomes dirty and set a reminder to swap it regularly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance
    To guarantee it is operating at its best, your air conditioner needs regular maintenance just like your car does. If you put off this preventive maintenance, it could cost you a lot of troubles that could’ve easily been identified 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 more ways to help prevent AC repairs, call Cool Air Solutions in Murrieta at 951-299-9853.
