The temperatures are on their way up in Rock Hill and so are the chances that you’ll be flipping 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 be on the lookout for and signs that you might 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 running 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 normal, there might be a problem. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at US Air Heating and Cooling.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Weird sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good thing. 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 after years 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 offer an understanding of what is appropriate behavior from your air conditioning system.
Routine maintenance also helps highlight headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Arrange an appointment with US Air Heating and Cooling this spring to proactively ensure your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too hot, test out your air conditioner to see how it works so you can make any necessary repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort tested as a result of a broken air conditioner. If you see any signs that your air conditioner needs repair, give US Air Heating and Cooling a call at 803-220-0761 to set up an appointment.
