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 grow larger than originally planned and sometimes easy tasks, like changing your air filter, fall to the wayside. That shouldn’t be a huge deal, right? Wrong. Something that small could be the catalyst to your 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 pricey 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 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 neglect it, you’ll have an increased chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Air Alliance Team can help you nip a problem in the bud before it turns into a massive problem.
  2. Keep your air filter clean
    It’s not hard 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 that leads to your air conditioner running harder than it should. That makes it less effective and could raise your utility bills. Keep an eye on 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 needs regular maintenance just like your car does. If you put off this preventive maintenance, it could cost you a lot of issues 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 more ways to help prevent AC repairs, call Air Alliance Team in Saint Charles at 636-229-1544.
