The temperatures are rising in Port St. Lucie and so are the chances that you’ll be turning on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. An increase in use also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.
Here are a couple tips on what to look for and signs that you might need to call in a pro to take a look at your air conditioner.
- Air isn’t getting cold – Perhaps one of the most recognizable signs that your air conditioner isn’t operating correctly is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t seeing 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 may be an issue. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the experts at Custom Air Systems Inc.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Abnormal sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good sign. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s putting out 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 sounds. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when working. This will be helpful and offer an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.
Routine maintenance also helps highlight problems before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Set up an appointment with Custom Air Systems 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 works 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.
