August 05, 2015

Homeownership adds a lot to your plate. Sometimes too much. Projects seem to grow larger than originally planned and sometimes easy tasks, like changing your air filter, slip through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a huge deal, right? Wrong. Something that simple could lead 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 take note if your air conditioner begins making unusual sounds. It may be an odd hum or rattling, or another sound, but if it’s not a sound you’re accustomed to hearing, have it checked out. If you neglect it, you’ll have a greater chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Integrity AC & Heating 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 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 causes your air conditioner to work harder than it needs to. That makes it less effective and could cause your utility bills to increase. Pay attention to how quickly your filter becomes dirty and set a reminder to change it regularly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance
    To guarantee it is operating at its best, your air conditioner requires routine maintenance just like your car does. If you postpone this preventive maintenance, it could cost you a lot of troubles 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 escape AC repairs. If you want to learn some more tips to help prevent AC repairs, call Integrity AC & Heating LLC in Phoenix at 602-971-0567.
