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 accumulate and sometimes small tasks, like changing your air filter, slip through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a big deal, right? Wrong. Something that small could lead to your 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 accustomed to all the sounds that regularly occur in your house, but always be sure to take note if your air conditioner begins 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 ignore it, you’ll have a greater chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at True Home Heating and Air Conditioning 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 bad for your air conditioner. A dirty 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. Make note of how quickly your filter becomes clogged and set a reminder to switch it regularly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance
    To ensure it is operating at its best, your air conditioner requires regular maintenance just like your car does. If you postpone this preventive maintenance, it could cost you a lot of issues that could’ve easily been identified during a maintenance appointment turn into substantial issues that lead to an AC repair.

It makes no difference if your air conditioner is new or if you’ve had it for years, you can do these things to avoid AC repairs. If you want to learn some more tips to help prevent AC repairs, call True Home Heating and Air Conditioning in Irvine at 949-258-7259.
