Checking for AC Repair

3 Things Homeowners Dont Do That Leads to AC Repair

Homeownership puts a lot on your plate. Occasionally 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 big deal, right? Wrong. Something that seemingly insignificant could be the catalyst to your needing an AC repair. There are a couple things you should never forget to do when it comes to your air conditioner that could save you from potentially costly repairs:

  1. Notice unusual sounds from your air conditioner
    You become accustomed 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 bizarre hum or rattling, or another sound, but if it’s not a sound you’re used to hearing, have it checked out. If you neglect it, you’ll have an increased chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Oak Point Heating and Air LLC can help you nip a problem in the bud before it turns into a larger 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 that leads to your air conditioner running harder than it should. That makes it less effective and could raise your utility bills. Make note of how quickly your filter becomes dirty and set a reminder to switch it regularly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance
    To ensure it is operating at its best, your air conditioner needs 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 identified during a maintenance appointment turn into substantial issues that lead to an AC repair.

It makes no difference if 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 some more tips to help prevent AC repairs, call Oak Point Heating and Air LLC in Denton at 940-202-1202.
