Homeownership adds a lot to your plate. Oftentimes too much. Projects seem to multiply and sometimes small tasks, like changing your air filter, fall to the wayside. That shouldn’t be a huge deal, right? Wrong. Something that simple 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 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 higher chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Brandon Heating and Plumbing (1998) Ltd. can help you address 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 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 lead to an increase in 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 ensure it is operating at its best, your air conditioner needs annual maintenance just like your car does. If you delay 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. If you want to learn additional ways to help prevent AC repairs, call Brandon Heating and Plumbing (1998) Ltd. in Brandon at 204-728-0180.
