The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Marshfield, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.
We have a few warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the professionals from House of Heating Incorporated to administer air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most noticeable proof that your air conditioner requires repair. The initial 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 currently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to achieve 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 apparent 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 problem. 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 troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at House of Heating Incorporated.
- Strange sounds – Peculiar 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 cure the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner are cabapble of becoming loose through wear and tear and will have to be corrected by a professional.
Try to be cognizant of how your air conditioner sounds and functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot when things aren’t running smoothly.
Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet booked your annual maintenance appointment with House of Heating Incorporated, now is the perfect time.
