Wrong. Something that simple could be the catalyst to your needing an AC repair. There are a couple 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 starts making unusual sounds. It may be a strange hum or rattling, or another sound, but if it’s not a sound you’re used to hearing, have it checked out. If you ignore it, you’ll have a greater chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Stieferman Heating Company 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 bad for your air conditioner. A grimy air filter blocks air flow and makes your air conditioner work harder than it needs to. That makes it less effective and could cause your utility bills to increase. Make note of how quickly your filter becomes grimy and set a reminder to change it regularly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance
    To ensure it is operating at its best, your air conditioner requires regular 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 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 some more tips to help prevent AC repairs, call Stieferman Heating Company Inc in Jefferson City at 573-203-3908.
