The temperatures are on their way up in Mount Pleasant and so are the chances that you’ll be turning on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. More usage also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.
Here are a couple tips on what to be on the lookout for and signs that you might need to call in a pro 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 correctly is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t seeing 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 may 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 change your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at Olde Towne Heating & Air.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Abnormal sounds coming from your air conditioner is more than likely not a good thing. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s producing 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 due to 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 working. This will be helpful and give you an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.
Scheduled maintenance also helps reveal issues before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Arrange an appointment with Olde Towne Heating & Air this spring to proactively make sure 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 proper repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort tested as a result of a broken air conditioner.
