The temperatures are on their way up in Tucson 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 some tips on what to look 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 – Potentially one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner isn’t working correctly is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t seeing 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 an issue. First, try to change your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the experts at Ambient Air.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Abnormal sounds coming from your air conditioner is 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 due to wear and tear
When it’s working effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically runs. 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.
Regular maintenance also helps highlight headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Arrange an appointment with Ambient Air this spring to proactively ensure your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too warm, test out your air conditioner to see how it runs so you can make any proper repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort compromised as a result of a broken air conditioner.
