Checking for AC Repair

3 Things Homeowners Dont Do That Leads to AC Repair

Homeownership is a lot of work. Sometimes 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 problem, right? Wrong. Something that small could be the catalyst 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 normally occur in your house, but always be sure to take note 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 higher 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 not hard to forget to clean or change your air filter, but it’s not good 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. Keep an eye on how quickly your filter becomes clogged and set a reminder to change 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 troubles that could’ve easily been detected during a maintenance appointment turn into larger issues that lead to an AC repair.

No matter 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 more ways to help prevent AC repairs, call Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. in Oxford at 662-281-1231.
