The temperatures are rising in Columbia 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 be on the lookout for and signs that you may 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 operating 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 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 normal, there might be an issue. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at Watts Electric & A/C Inc.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Abnormal sounds coming from your air conditioner is more than likely not a good sign. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s making 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 functioning effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically runs. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when on. This will be helpful and give you an understanding of what is typical behavior from your air conditioning system.
Scheduled maintenance also helps identify headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Set up an appointment with Watts Electric & A/C Inc this spring to proactively make sure your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too toasty, test out your air conditioner to see how it runs so you can make any appropriate 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 Watts Electric & A/C Inc a call at 601-736-7362 to set up an appointment.
