Projects seem to grow larger than originally planned and sometimes easy tasks, like changing your air filter, fall through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a big deal, right? Wrong. Something that seemingly insignificant could lead 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: Notice unusual sounds from your air conditioner You become accustomed to all the sounds that normally occur in your house, but always be sure to pay attention 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’re used to hearing, have it checked out. If you ignore it, you’ll have an increased chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc can help you get in front of a small problem before it turns into a bigger problem. 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.

Pay attention to how quickly your filter becomes clogged and set a reminder to change it regularly. Schedule regular maintenance To make certain it is operating at its best, your air conditioner depends upon routine maintenance just like your car does. If you delay this preventive maintenance, it could cost you a lot of issues 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.
