The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in York, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be require AC repair.
We have some warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the professionals from Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning to administer air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The key thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and ensure that it’s set to “auto” rather than “on”. If it’s set to “on” your AC will constantly 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 is an indication that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
- Decreased air flow – This concern isn’t as apparent 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 an issue. If you haven’t changed your air filter recently, 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 issues, you’ll want to call the professionals at Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning.
- Strange sounds – Weird noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a good sign. If you hear any banging or rattling coming from your air conditioner, turning your TV up so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to cure the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner can become loose through wear and tear and will have to be corrected by a professional.
Try to be mindful 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 smoothly.
Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet made your your annual maintenance appointment with Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning, now is the ideal time.
