The temperatures are on their way up in Delray Beach 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 few tips on what to look for and signs that you may need to call in a professional to take a look at your air conditioner.
- Air isn’t getting cold – Possibly one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner isn’t operating properly 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 could 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 you’re used to, there may be a problem. First, try to change your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the experts at Kilbourne Heating & AC.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Weird sounds coming from your air conditioner is likely not a good sign. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s producing 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 working effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically operates. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when on. This will be helpful and give you an understanding of what is appropriate behavior from your air conditioning system.
Routine maintenance also helps reveal problems before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Arrange an appointment with Kilbourne Heating & AC this spring to proactively ensure your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too toasty, test out your air conditioner to see how it operates 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.
