The temperatures are rising in West Columbia and so are the chances that you’ll be running 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 look for and signs that you may need to call in an expert to take a look at your air conditioner.
- Air isn’t getting cold – Perhaps one of the most noticeable 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 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 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 change your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc..
- Odd sounds/clinking – Strange sounds coming from your air conditioner is more than likely 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 as a result of wear and tear
When it’s functioning effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically operates. 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.
Regular maintenance also helps reveal headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Set up an appointment with Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. this spring to proactively make sure your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too hot, 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 compromised as a result of a broken air conditioner.
