The temperatures are rising in New Castle 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 couple tips on what to be on the lookout for and signs that you could need to call in an expert to take a look at your air conditioner.
- Air isn’t getting cold – Perhaps one of the most recognizable signs that your air conditioner isn’t operating right 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 may 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 something wrong. First, try to change your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at Central Heating & Plumbing.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Abnormal sounds coming from your air conditioner is likely 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 as a result of wear and tear
When it’s functioning effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically sounds. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when running. This will be helpful and provide you with an understanding of what is appropriate behavior from your air conditioning system.
Scheduled maintenance also helps reveal problems before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Arrange an appointment with Central Heating & Plumbing 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 runs so you can make any proper repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort tested as a result of a broken air conditioner. If you see any signs that your air conditioner needs repair, give Central Heating & Plumbing a call at 724-401-1843 to set up an appointment.
