Checking for AC Repair

3 Things Homeowners Dont Do That Leads to AC Repair

Homeownership adds a lot to your plate. Oftentimes too much. Projects seem to accumulate and sometimes simple tasks, like changing your air filter, fall through the cracks. That shouldn’t be a huge deal, right? Wrong. Something that seemingly insignificant 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 pricey repairs:

  1. Notice unusual sounds from your air conditioner
    You get used to all the sounds that ordinarily occur in your house, but always be sure to pay attention if your air conditioner starts 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 Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning can help you address a small problem before it turns into a bigger problem.
  2. Keep your air filter clean
    It’s really easy to forget to clean or change your air filter, but it’s bad for your air conditioner. A grimy air filter blocks air flow and causes your air conditioner to work harder than it needs to. That makes it less effective and could raise your utility bills. Keep an eye on how quickly your filter becomes clogged and set a reminder to switch it regularly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance
    To ensure it is operating at its best, your air conditioner needs regular maintenance just like your car does. If you postpone this preventive maintenance, it could cost you a lot of problems that could’ve easily been identified 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 fend off AC repairs. If you want to learn more ways to help prevent AC repairs, call Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning in Winnipeg at 204-272-8128.
