The temperatures are rising in Troy 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 a few tips on what to be on the lookout 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 running properly 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 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 usual, there might be something wrong. First, try to change your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the experts at Edington Heating & Cooling Inc.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Weird sounds coming from your air conditioner is more than likely not a good signal. 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 as a result of wear and tear
When it’s functioning effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically sounds. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when running. This will be helpful and offer 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 Edington Heating & Cooling Inc this spring to proactively ensure your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too toasty, test out your air conditioner to see how it operates so you can make any necessary 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. If you see any signs that your air conditioner needs repair, give Edington Heating & Cooling Inc a call at 937-558-9478 to set up an appointment.
