Homeownership is a lot of work. Oftentimes too much. Projects seem to grow larger than originally planned and sometimes small tasks, like changing your air filter, fall through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a big deal, right? Wrong. Something that simple could lead to your 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 become familiar with all the sounds that regularly 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 normally hear, have it checked out. If you ignore it, you’ll have a greater chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. can help you address a small problem 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 not good for your air conditioner. A clogged 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. Pay attention to how quickly your filter becomes clogged and set a reminder to change it regularly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance
    To ensure it is operating at its best, your air conditioner needs annual maintenance just like your car does. If you put off this preventive maintenance, it could cost you a lot of troubles 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 additional ways to help prevent AC repairs, call Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. in Oxford at 662-350-0343.
