The temperatures are rising in Abilene and so are the chances that you’ll be turning on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. More usage also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.
Here are some 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 – Possibly one of the most recognizable signs that your air conditioner isn’t working properly is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t noticing 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 could 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 usual, there could be an issue. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at Abilene Air-Tech Inc.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Weird sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably 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 operates. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when running. This will be helpful and offer an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.
Scheduled maintenance also helps identify issues before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Arrange an appointment with Abilene Air-Tech Inc this spring to proactively make certain your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too warm, test out your air conditioner to see how it operates so you can make any proper 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. If you see any signs that your air conditioner needs repair, give Abilene Air-Tech Inc a call at 325-200-4667 to set up an appointment.
