Checking for AC Repair

3 Things Homeowners Dont Do That Leads to AC Repair

Homeownership puts a lot on your plate. Sometimes too much. Projects seem to accumulate and sometimes easy tasks, like changing your air filter, fall through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a huge deal, right? Wrong. Something that simple could start you on the path to needing an AC repair. There are a few things you should keep in mind 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 ordinarily occur in your house, but always be sure to pay attention 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 normally hear, have it checked out. If you ignore it, you’ll have a greater chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc can help you nip a problem in the bud before it turns into a larger 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 causes your air conditioner to work harder than it needs to. That makes it less effective and could lead to an increase in your utility bills. Pay attention to how quickly your filter becomes grimy and set a reminder to change it regularly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance
    To make certain it is operating at its best, your air conditioner requires annual maintenance just like your car does. If you postpone this preventive maintenance, it could cost you a lot of problems that could’ve easily been detected 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 avoid AC repairs. If you want to learn some more tips to help prevent AC repairs, call Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc in Saint Petersburg at 727-369-6195.
