There are a few things you should always remember to do when it comes to your air conditioner that could save you from potentially expensive repairs: 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 take notice if your air conditioner starts making unusual sounds. It may be an odd hum or rattling, or another sound, but if it’s not a sound you’re used to hearing, have it checked out. If you avoid it, you’ll have a greater chance of an emergency AC repair. The professionals at Air Solutions, Inc can help you get in front of a small problem before it turns into a bigger problem.

Pay attention to how quickly your filter becomes dirty and set a reminder to swap it regularly.

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.
