The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Los Angeles, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.
We have some warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s time to call in the professionals from AZ Air Conditioning and Heating to arrange air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner requires repair. The first thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and confirm that it’s set to “auto” rather than “on”. If it’s set to “on” your AC will continually blow air even if it’s not immediately being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to reach 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 issue isn’t as easy to spot as the previous, but if you suspect the air coming from your vents isn’t flowing as strongly as it had previously, there could be an issue. 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 problems, you’ll want to call the professionals at AZ Air Conditioning and Heating.
- Strange sounds – Weird noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any clanking 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 can become 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 functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot when things aren’t running correctly.
Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet booked your annual maintenance appointment with AZ Air Conditioning and Heating, now is an excellent time.
