The temperatures are rising in Front Royal 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 be on the lookout for and signs that you could need to call in a professional 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 running correctly is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t seeing 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 normal, there might be an issue. First, try to replace your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at Dave's Diversified Services.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Abnormal sounds coming from your air conditioner is likely 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 working. This will be helpful and offer an understanding of what is typical behavior from your air conditioning system.
Scheduled maintenance also helps reveal headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Arrange an appointment with Dave's Diversified Services 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 works so you can make any necessary repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort compromised as a result of a broken air conditioner.
