The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Jefferson City, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be require AC repair.
We have a few warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the professionals from Stieferman Heating Company Inc to arrange air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most notable signs that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The initial 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 immediately 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 problem 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 a concern. If you haven’t changed your air filter recently, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as straightforward as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at Stieferman Heating Company Inc.
- Strange sounds – Bizarre noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a positive sign. If you hear any clinking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, putting on headphones 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 corrected by a professional.
Try to be cognizant of how your air conditioner sounds and works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to catch when things aren’t running correctly.
