Homeownership is a lot of work. Oftentimes too much. Projects seem to accumulate and sometimes easy 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 a few things you should keep in mind 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 familiar with all the sounds that normally occur in your house, but always be sure to take notice if your air conditioner begins making unusual sounds. It may be a bizarre hum or rattling, or another sound, but if it’s not a sound you’re accustomed to hearing, have it checked out. If you ignore it, you’ll have a greater chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Branson HVAC, 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 not hard 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 raise your utility bills. Pay attention to how quickly your filter becomes dirty and set a reminder to change it regularly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance
    To ensure it is operating at its best, your air conditioner depends upon routine 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 discovered 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.
