Checking for AC Repair

3 Things Homeowners Dont Do That Leads to AC Repair

Homeownership is a lot of work. Occasionally too much. Projects seem to multiply and sometimes simple tasks, like changing your air filter, fall through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a big deal, right? Wrong. Something that small could start you on the path to 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 expensive repairs:

  1. Notice unusual sounds from your air conditioner
    You get used to all the sounds that regularly occur in your house, but always be sure to take notice 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 accustomed to hearing, have it checked out. If you avoid it, you’ll have an increased chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning can help you address a small problem before it turns into a massive problem.
  2. Keep your air filter clean
    It’s so easy to forget to clean or change your air filter, but it’s detrimental for your air conditioner. A grimy air filter blocks air flow and makes your air conditioner 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 clogged and set a reminder to switch it regularly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance
    To guarantee it is operating at its best, your air conditioner requires annual 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 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. If you want to learn more ways to help prevent AC repairs, call Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning in Derby at 203-734-7648.
