The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Wharton, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to keep comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.
We have some warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the experienced technicians from Faust Air Conditioning and Heating to arrange air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner has the need for 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 continually blow air even if it’s not immediately 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 easy to spot 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 for some time, 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 issues, you’ll want to call the professionals at Faust Air Conditioning and Heating.
- Strange sounds – Bizarre noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any clinking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, putting on headphones so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to fix 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 aware 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 smoothly.
Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual maintenance appointment with Faust Air Conditioning and Heating, now is the ideal time.
