The temperatures are going up in Auburn and Opelika and so are the chances that you’ll be flipping 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 few tips on what to be on the lookout for and signs that you might need to call in an expert to take a look at your air conditioner.
- Air isn’t getting cold – Possibly one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner isn’t running properly 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 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 normal, there may be a problem. First, try to replace your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at Farnell Mechanical, Inc..
- Odd sounds/clinking – Strange sounds coming from your air conditioner is likely not a good thing. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s putting out 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 running effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically runs. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when running. This will be helpful and offer an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.
Scheduled maintenance also helps reveal headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Arrange an appointment with Farnell Mechanical, Inc. this spring to proactively ensure your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too hot, test out your air conditioner to see how it operates so you can make any necessary repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort in limbo as a result of a broken air conditioner. If you see any signs that your air conditioner needs repair, give Farnell Mechanical, Inc. a call at 334-524-2458 to set up an appointment.
