The temperatures are on their way up in Tucson and so are the chances that you’ll be flipping on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. Greater 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 may need to call in an expert to take a look at your air conditioner.
- Air isn’t getting cold – Perhaps one of the most obvious signs that your air conditioner isn’t working 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 usual, there might be something wrong. First, try to replace your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the experts at A&M Heating & Cooling LLC.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Strange sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good sign. 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 working. This will be helpful and provide you with an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.
Scheduled maintenance also helps reveal problems before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Schedule an appointment with A&M Heating & Cooling LLC 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 runs so you can make any appropriate repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort in limbo as a result of a broken air conditioner. If you see any signs that your air conditioner needs repair, give A&M Heating & Cooling LLC a call at 520-200-1048 to set up an appointment.
