The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Phoenix, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be in need of AC repair.
We have some warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the experienced technicians from Integrity AC & Heating LLC to administer air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most notable signs that your air conditioner has the need for repair. The initial 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 continually 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 signals that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
- Decreased air flow – This problem isn’t as easy to spot as the previous, but if you feel 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 simple 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 Integrity AC & Heating LLC.
- Strange sounds – Bizarre noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a positive sign. If you hear any clinking 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 have been known to come loose through wear and tear and will have to be fixed by a professional.
Try to be cognizant of how your air conditioner sounds and works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running properly.
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 Integrity AC & Heating LLC, now is an excellent time.
