The temperatures are going up in Middletown and so are the chances that you’ll be running your air conditioner to stay comfortable. More usage also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.
Here are some tips on what to watch for and signs that you might need to call in an expert to take a look at your air conditioner.
- Air isn’t getting cold – Potentially one of the most obvious signs that your air conditioner isn’t operating right 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 might 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 normal, there may be an issue. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at SchagrinGAS Company.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Abnormal sounds coming from your air conditioner is likely not a good sign. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s putting out 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 after years of wear and tear
When it’s running effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically runs. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when on. This will be helpful and offer an understanding of what is typical behavior from your air conditioning system.
Regular maintenance also helps identify headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Arrange an appointment with SchagrinGAS Company 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 runs so you can make any appropriate repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort in limbo as a result of a broken air conditioner.
