The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Sandpoint, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.
We have three warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the experts from Age Heating & Cooling to arrange air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most prominent indications that your air conditioner requires repair. The initial thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and ensure that it’s set to “auto” rather than “on”. If it’s set to “on” your AC will continually 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 obvious 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 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 uncomplicated as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing problems, you’ll want to call the professionals at Age Heating & Cooling.
- Strange sounds – Peculiar noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any banging or rattling coming from your air conditioner, cranking the volume on your TV so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to cure the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner can become 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 operates when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running correctly.
Keeping up with regular 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 Age Heating & Cooling, now is the ideal time.
