The temperatures are on their way up in Bossier City and so are the chances that you’ll be running your air conditioner to stay comfortable. More usage also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.
Here are a couple 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 operating properly 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 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 could be something wrong. First, try to replace your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the experts at Central Aire Heating & A/C Inc.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Abnormal sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good thing. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s producing 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 functioning 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 typical behavior from your air conditioning system.
Regular maintenance also helps identify problems before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Arrange an appointment with Central Aire Heating & A/C Inc this spring to proactively ensure your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too toasty, test out your air conditioner to see how it works so you can make any necessary 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 Central Aire Heating & A/C Inc a call at 318-855-2326 to set up an appointment.
