The temperatures are on their way up in Payson and so are the chances that you’ll be turning 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 a few tips on what to look for and signs that you might need to call in a pro to take a look at your air conditioner.
- Air isn’t getting cold – Potentially one of the most recognizable signs that your air conditioner isn’t working correctly 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 may 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 you’re used to, there may be something wrong. First, try to replace your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at North Mechanical Heating and Cooling.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Abnormal sounds coming from your air conditioner is more than likely not a good thing. 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 as a result of wear and tear
When it’s running effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically runs. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when working. This will be helpful and provide you with an understanding of what is appropriate behavior from your air conditioning system.
Scheduled maintenance also helps reveal headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Schedule an appointment with North Mechanical Heating and Cooling this spring to proactively make sure 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 proper 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 North Mechanical Heating and Cooling a call at 928-263-8570 to set up an appointment.
