Checking for AC Repair

3 Things Homeowners Dont Do That Leads to AC Repair

Homeownership is a lot of work. Occasionally too much. Projects seem to multiply and sometimes easy tasks, like changing your air filter, slip through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a problem, right? Wrong. Something that seemingly insignificant could lead to your needing an AC repair. There are a few 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 accustomed to all the sounds that ordinarily occur in your house, but always be sure to take notice if your air conditioner starts making unusual sounds. It may be a strange hum or rattling, or another sound, but if it’s not a sound you’re accustomed to hearing, have it checked out. If you neglect it, you’ll have an increased chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Faust Air Conditioning and Heating 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 really easy to forget to clean or change your air filter, but it’s detrimental for your air conditioner. A dirty air filter blocks air flow and makes your air conditioner work harder than it needs to. That makes it less effective and could lead to an increase in your utility bills. Make note of how quickly your filter becomes clogged and set a reminder to switch it regularly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance
    To guarantee it is operating at its best, your air conditioner requires 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 discovered 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 some more tips to help prevent AC repairs, call Faust Air Conditioning and Heating in Wharton at 979-323-6130.
