The temperatures are rising in Marshalltown and so are the chances that you’ll be flipping on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. More usage also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.
Here are a couple tips on what to look for and signs that you might need to call in a pro to take a look at your air conditioner.
- Air isn’t getting cold – Perhaps one of the most obvious signs that your air conditioner isn’t working right 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 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 usual, there could be a problem. First, try to change your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the experts at Kapaun & Brown Inc..
- Odd sounds/clinking – Weird sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good thing. 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 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 running. This will be helpful and provide you with an understanding of what is appropriate behavior from your air conditioning system.
Regular maintenance also helps identify headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Schedule an appointment with Kapaun & Brown Inc. this spring to proactively make certain your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too toasty, test out your air conditioner to see how it works so you can make any appropriate repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort tested as a result of a broken air conditioner.
