The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Mobile, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.
We have three warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the experienced technicians from Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc to provide air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most noticeable indications that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The first thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and establish 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 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 concern isn’t as obvious 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 an issue. If you haven’t changed your air filter for some time, 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 problems, you’ll want to call the professionals at Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc.
- Strange sounds – Bizarre noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome 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 repaired by a professional.
Try to be mindful of how your air conditioner sounds and functions 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 booked your annual maintenance appointment with Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc, now is the ideal time.
