The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Greensburg, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be in need of AC repair.
We have some warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the professionals from Wallpe Heating & Cooling to arrange air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most notable proof that your air conditioner requires repair. The initial 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 constantly blow air even if it’s not immediately being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to get to 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 problem isn’t as apparent as the previous, but if you suspect 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 recently, 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 troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at Wallpe Heating & Cooling.
- Strange sounds – Bizarre noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a good sign. If you hear any clanking 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 fixed by a professional.
Try to be cognizant of how your air conditioner sounds and operates when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot when things aren’t running properly.
Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet made your your annual maintenance appointment with Wallpe Heating & Cooling, now is the perfect time.
