The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Arlington, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to keep comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be in need of AC repair.
We have three warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s time to call in the professionals from Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning to provide air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most noticeable indications that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The key thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and confirm 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 get to the temperature set on your thermostat, that is a sign that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
- Decreased air flow – This problem isn’t as apparent as the previous, but if you feel 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 for some time, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as uncomplicated as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing issues, you’ll want to call the professionals at Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning.
- Strange sounds – Bizarre noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a good sign. If you hear any clinking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, cranking the volume on your TV so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to cure 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 mindful of how your air conditioner sounds and functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to catch when things aren’t running properly.
Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet made your your annual maintenance appointment with Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning, now is the perfect time.
