The temperatures are on their way up in Racine 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 might need to call in an expert 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 working right is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t noticing 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 might 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 an issue. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Strange sounds coming from your air conditioner is more than likely 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 due to wear and tear
When it’s running effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically operates. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when on. This will be helpful and offer an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.
Scheduled maintenance also helps identify problems before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Set up an appointment with Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc this spring to proactively make sure your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too warm, test out your air conditioner to see how it works so you can make any appropriate 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 Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc a call at 262-358-9468 to set up an appointment.
