The temperatures are rising in Macon and so are the chances that you’ll be turning on 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 watch for and signs that you could need to call in a professional 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 running right is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t seeing 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 may be an issue. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at Air Temperature Control.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Abnormal sounds coming from your air conditioner is more than likely not a good signal. 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 after years of wear and tear
When it’s working effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically sounds. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when on. This will be helpful and provide you with an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.
Regular maintenance also helps highlight issues before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Arrange an appointment with Air Temperature Control this spring to proactively make certain your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too hot, 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 tested as a result of a broken air conditioner.
