The temperatures are rising in Westerville 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 a few tips on what to watch for and signs that you could need to call in a professional 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 right 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 may 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 might be an issue. First, try to replace your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at Uptown Heating & Cooling.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Strange sounds coming from your air conditioner is likely not a good sign. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s producing 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 due to 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 working. This will be helpful and provide you with an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.
Routine maintenance also helps identify issues before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Schedule an appointment with Uptown Heating & Cooling this spring to proactively ensure your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too warm, 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 tested as a result of a broken air conditioner. If you see any signs that your air conditioner needs repair, give Uptown Heating & Cooling a call at 614-344-6949 to set up an appointment.
