Checking for AC Repair

3 Things Homeowners Dont Do That Leads to AC Repair

Homeownership puts a lot on your plate. Occasionally too much. Projects seem to grow larger than originally planned and sometimes simple tasks, like changing your air filter, fall through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a huge deal, right? Wrong. Something that small could be the catalyst to your needing an AC repair. There are a few 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 accustomed to 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 strange hum or rattling, or another sound, but if it’s not a sound you normally hear, have it checked out. If you ignore it, you’ll have an increased chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Brogan Heating & AC Inc can help you address a small problem before it turns into a bigger problem.
  2. Keep your air filter clean
    It’s not hard to forget to clean or change your air filter, but it’s detrimental for your air conditioner. A clogged 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 grimy and set a reminder to switch it regularly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance
    To ensure it is operating at its best, your air conditioner requires annual maintenance just like your car does. If you put off this preventive maintenance, it could cost you a lot of troubles 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 more ways to help prevent AC repairs, call Brogan Heating & AC Inc in Rochester at 507-218-0088.
