Homeownership puts a lot on your plate. Sometimes too much. 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 huge deal, right? Wrong. Something that small could start you on the path to 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 pricey repairs:

  1. Notice unusual sounds from your air conditioner
    You get used to all the sounds that ordinarily occur in your house, but always be sure to pay attention if your air conditioner seems to be 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 Central Heating & Plumbing can help you nip a problem in the bud before it turns into a massive problem.
  2. 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. A dirty air filter blocks air flow and causes your air conditioner to work harder than it needs to. That makes it less effective and could raise your utility bills. Keep an eye on how quickly your filter becomes grimy and set a reminder to switch it regularly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance
    To guarantee 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 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 Central Heating & Plumbing in New Castle at 724-401-1843.
