The temperatures are going up in Long Island 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 look 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 obvious signs that your air conditioner isn’t operating correctly is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t seeing 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 usual, 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 Airmax Long Island Inc.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Weird sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good sign. 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 due to wear and tear
When it’s working effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically sounds. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when on. This will be helpful and give you 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. Set up an appointment with Airmax Long Island Inc this spring to proactively make certain 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 proper repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort compromised as a result of a broken air conditioner.
