The temperatures are on their way up in Bloomfield and so are the chances that you’ll be running your air conditioner to stay comfortable. An increase in use also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.
Here are a few tips on what to watch for and signs that you may need to call in a professional to take a look at your air conditioner.
- Air isn’t getting cold – Possibly one of the most obvious signs that your air conditioner isn’t working properly is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t feeling the results in your home, it’s a good indication that you’ll need someone to check it out. Keep in mind if it’s an extremely hot day, it could take longer for your home to cool down.
- Decrease in airflow – If the air coming out of your vents doesn’t seem to be coming out as fast or strong as you’re used to, there might be an issue. First, try to replace your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the experts at Stanford Heating & Cooling.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Weird sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good thing. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s making any unusual sounds such as clanking, buzzing or rattling. There are a lot of moving parts inside your air conditioner, which can become loose or damaged as a result of wear and tear
When it’s running effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically sounds. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when on. This will be helpful and offer an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.
Regular maintenance also helps highlight headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Set up an appointment with Stanford Heating & Cooling this spring to proactively ensure your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too warm, test out your air conditioner to see how it works so you can make any proper repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort compromised as a result of a broken air conditioner.
