The temperatures are going up in Savage and so are the chances that you’ll be flipping on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. An increase in use also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.
Here are a couple tips on what to look for and signs that you could need to call in an expert to take a look at your air conditioner.
- Air isn’t getting cold – Perhaps 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 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 may be a problem. First, try to change your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the experts at Gopher Heating and Air Conditioning.
- 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 making 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 functioning 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 offer an understanding of what is appropriate behavior from your air conditioning system.
Regular maintenance also helps reveal problems before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Arrange an appointment with Gopher Heating and Air Conditioning 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 works so you can make any necessary repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort compromised as a result of a broken air conditioner.
