The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Lawrence, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.
We have some warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the experienced technicians from Scott Temperature to arrange air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most prominent signs that your air conditioner has the need for repair. The first 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 steadily blow air even if it’s not presently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to reach 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 issue isn’t as easy to spot 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 a concern. If you haven’t changed your air filter in a while, 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 troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at Scott Temperature.
- Strange sounds – Bizarre noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a positive sign. If you hear any banging or rattling coming from your air conditioner, putting on headphones so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to solve the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner can become loose through wear and tear and will have to be repaired by a professional.
Try to be mindful of how your air conditioner sounds and operates when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running smoothly.
Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual maintenance appointment with Scott Temperature, now is an excellent time.
