The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Central Point, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be in need of AC repair.
We have some warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s time to call in the experts from Titan Heating & Air Conditioning to administer air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most prominent proof that your air conditioner has the need for repair. The initial 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 currently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to get to the temperature set on your thermostat, that is a sign that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
- Decreased air flow – This issue isn’t as apparent 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 a concern. If you haven’t changed your air filter recently, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as uncomplicated 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 Titan Heating & Air Conditioning.
- Strange sounds – Weird noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any clanking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, turning your TV up so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to solve the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner are cabapble of becoming loose through wear and tear and will have to be repaired by a professional.
Try to be aware 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 properly.
Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual maintenance appointment with Titan Heating & Air Conditioning, now is the ideal time.
