The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Pacheco, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to keep comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be in need of AC repair.
We have a few warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the professionals from Clean Air HVAC to administer air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most notable signs that your air conditioner requires repair. The initial thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and ensure 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 issue isn’t as obvious as the previous, but if you think 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 Clean Air HVAC.
- Strange sounds – Bizarre noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a positive sign. If you hear any clanking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, turning your TV up so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to solve the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner have been known to come loose through wear and tear and will have to be fixed by a professional.
Try to be cognizant of how your air conditioner sounds and works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running properly.
Keeping up with annual 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 Clean Air HVAC, now is an excellent time.
