3 Things Homeowners Don't Do That Leads to AC Repair

August 05, 2015

Homeownership adds a lot to your plate. Oftentimes too much. Projects seem to grow larger than originally planned and sometimes small tasks, like changing your air filter, fall through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a big deal, right? Wrong. Something that small could be the catalyst to your needing an AC repair. There are some things you should never forget 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 pay attention 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 used to hearing, have it checked out. If you ignore it, you’ll have a higher chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Cool Power LLC 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 not good 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 cause your utility bills to increase. Keep an eye on how quickly your filter becomes dirty and set a reminder to change it regularly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance
    To make certain it is operating at its best, your air conditioner depends upon annual maintenance just like your car does. If you postpone 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 escape AC repairs. If you want to learn some more tips to help prevent AC repairs, call Cool Power LLC in Ronkonkoma at 631-246-4029.
