Homeownership is a lot of work. Oftentimes 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 problem, right? Wrong. Something that seemingly insignificant could be the catalyst to your needing an AC repair. There are some things you should never forget 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 become accustomed to all the sounds that regularly occur in your house, but always be sure to pay attention if your air conditioner begins making unusual sounds. It may be a strange hum or rattling, or another sound, but if it’s not a sound you normally hear, have it checked out. If you neglect it, you’ll have a greater chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Innovative Mechanical, LLC can help you nip a problem in the bud 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 bad 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 cause your utility bills to increase. Make note of how quickly your filter becomes dirty and set a reminder to swap it regularly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance
    To make certain it is operating at its best, your air conditioner depends upon annual maintenance just like your car does. If you put off this preventive maintenance, it could cost you a lot of problems that could’ve easily been detected 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 escape AC repairs. If you want to learn more ways to help prevent AC repairs, call Innovative Mechanical, LLC in Dallas and Atlanta surrounding areas at 770-726-7407.
