The temperatures are on their way up in Ballwin and St. Charles and so are the chances that you’ll be running 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 few tips on what to watch for and signs that you might need to call in a professional 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 feeling 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 you’re used to, there might be a problem. First, try to change your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the experts at Air Alliance Team.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Weird sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good sign. 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 after years 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 working. This will be helpful and give you an understanding of what is appropriate behavior from your air conditioning system.
Regular maintenance also helps identify headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Arrange an appointment with Air Alliance Team 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 works so you can make any appropriate 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.
