The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Safford, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.
We have three warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the professionals from B&D Air Conditioning to provide air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most prominent indications that your air conditioner requires repair. The first thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and ensure 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 reach 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 apparent 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 an issue. If you haven’t changed your air filter in a while, 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 troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at B&D Air Conditioning.
- Strange sounds – Peculiar noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any banging or rattling coming from your air conditioner, turning your TV up so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to solve the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner are cabapble of becoming loose through wear and tear and will have to be corrected 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 spot when things aren’t running smoothly.
Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet booked your annual maintenance appointment with B&D Air Conditioning, now is an excellent time.
