The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Genoa, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be in need of AC repair.
We have three warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the experienced technicians from Assured Appliance and Heating & Air to arrange air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most notable proof that your air conditioner has the need for repair. The initial thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and establish that it’s set to “auto” rather than “on”. If it’s set to “on” your AC will steadily blow air even if it’s not presently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to reach the temperature set on your thermostat, that is an indication that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
- Decreased air flow – This problem isn’t as apparent as the previous, but if you suspect the air coming from your vents isn’t flowing as strongly as it had previously, there could be a problem. If you haven’t changed your air filter in a while, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as simple as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing issues, you’ll want to call the professionals at Assured Appliance and Heating & Air.
- Strange sounds – Peculiar noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any clanking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, turning your TV up so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to solve the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner have been known to come loose through wear and tear and will have to be fixed by a professional.
Try to be mindful of how your air conditioner sounds and functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running smoothly.
Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual maintenance appointment with Assured Appliance and Heating & Air, now is an excellent time.
