The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Eastland, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be in need of 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 experts from J & J Air Conditioning to arrange air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most prominent proof that your air conditioner has the need for repair. The initial 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 constantly blow air even if it’s not currently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to achieve 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 concern 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 for some time, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as straightforward as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing problems, you’ll want to call the professionals at J & J Air Conditioning.
- Strange sounds – Peculiar noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a positive sign. If you hear any clanking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, cranking the volume on your TV so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to solve the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner have been known to come 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 operates when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot when things aren’t running properly.
Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual maintenance appointment with J & J Air Conditioning, now is the ideal time.
