The temperatures are rising in Wisconsin Rapids 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 some 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 noticeable 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 feeling 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 could 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 might be a problem. First, try to replace your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Weird sounds coming from your air conditioner is likely not a good thing. 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 after years 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 on. This will be helpful and give you an understanding of what is appropriate behavior from your air conditioning system.
Scheduled maintenance also helps identify headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Arrange an appointment with Rapids Sheet Metal Works 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 runs so you can make any necessary repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort compromised as a result of a broken air conditioner.
