3 Things Homeowners Don’t Do That Leads to AC Repair08/05/2015 Homeownership adds a lot to your plate. Occasionally too much. Projects seem to accumulate and sometimes simple tasks, like changing your air filter, fall to the wayside. That shouldn’t be a huge 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 costly repairs: Notice unusual sounds from your air conditioner You get used to all the sounds that normally occur in your house, but always be sure to take notice if your air conditioner starts making unusual sounds. It may be an odd 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 Point Heating & Cooling can help you get in front of a small problem before it turns into a bigger problem. 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.

Make note of how quickly your filter becomes grimy and set a reminder to swap it regularly. Schedule regular maintenance To guarantee it is operating at its best, your air conditioner depends upon regular 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 bigger issues that lead to an AC repair. Whether your air conditioner is new or if you’ve had it for years, you can do these things to fend off AC repairs.
