The temperatures are rising in McHenry and so are the chances that you’ll be flipping on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. More usage also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.
Here are a few tips on what to watch 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 – Perhaps one of the most recognizable 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 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 may 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 normal, there could be something wrong. First, try to change your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at Jett's Heating & Air Inc..
- Odd sounds/clinking – Abnormal sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good signal. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s putting out 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 as a result of wear and tear
When it’s functioning effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically sounds. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when working. This will be helpful and provide you with an understanding of what is typical behavior from your air conditioning system.
Regular maintenance also helps identify issues before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Set up an appointment with Jett's Heating & Air Inc. this spring to proactively make sure your air conditioner is ready to go.
