The temperatures are going up in South Beloit and Belvidere and so are the chances that you’ll be running your air conditioner to stay comfortable. Greater usage also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.
Here are a few tips on what to look for and signs that you may need to call in a pro to take a look at your air conditioner.
- Air isn’t getting cold – Potentially one of the most noticeable 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 noticing 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 could be an issue. First, try to change your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the experts at Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning 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 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 as a result of wear and tear
When it’s running effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically operates. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when running. This will be helpful and provide you with an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.
Routine maintenance also helps identify headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Set up an appointment with Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc 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 necessary repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort tested as a result of a broken air conditioner.
