The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Rochester, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be require AC repair.
We have some warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the professionals from Brogan Heating & AC Inc to administer air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The key 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 immediately being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to get to 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 issue isn’t as easy to spot as the previous, but if you think the air coming from your vents isn’t flowing as strongly as it had previously, there could be a concern. 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 Brogan Heating & AC Inc.
- Strange sounds – Weird noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any clanking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, putting on headphones 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 aware of how your air conditioner sounds and works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot when things aren’t running correctly.
Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet booked your annual maintenance appointment with Brogan Heating & AC Inc, now is an excellent time.
