The temperatures are on their way up in Heflin and so are the chances that you’ll be flipping on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. Greater 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 pro to take a look at your air conditioner.
- Air isn’t getting cold – Possibly one of the most recognizable signs that your air conditioner isn’t working 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 may be a problem. First, try to replace your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Weird sounds coming from your air conditioner is more than likely not a good signal. 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 as a result of 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 running. This will be helpful and provide you with an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.
Scheduled maintenance also helps highlight problems before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Schedule an appointment with Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc this spring to proactively make sure your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too warm, 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 compromised as a result of a broken air conditioner. If you see any signs that your air conditioner needs repair, give Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc a call at 256-270-1196 to set up an appointment.
