Checking for AC Repair

3 Things Homeowners Dont Do That Leads to AC Repair

Homeownership adds a lot to your plate. Oftentimes too much. Projects seem to accumulate and sometimes easy tasks, like changing your air filter, slip through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a huge deal, right? Wrong. Something that seemingly insignificant could start you on the path to 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:

  1. Notice unusual sounds from your air conditioner
    You become familiar with all the sounds that regularly occur in your house, but always be sure to take note if your air conditioner starts making unusual sounds. It may be an odd 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 a greater chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at D & D Heating & AC can help you nip a problem in the bud before it turns into a massive problem.
  2. Keep your air filter clean
    It’s really easy to forget to clean or change your air filter, but it’s bad 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. Pay attention to 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 needs annual maintenance just like your car does. If you postpone this preventive maintenance, it could cost you a lot of issues that could’ve easily been detected during a maintenance appointment turn into bigger issues that lead to an AC repair.

Whether 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 some more tips to help prevent AC repairs, call D & D Heating & AC in Brighton at 720-316-1401.
