The temperatures are going up in Wausau 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 watch for and signs that you could need to call in a pro to take a look at your air conditioner.
- Air isn’t getting cold – Possibly one of the most recognizable 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 an issue. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at Gilray Heating and Cooling.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Strange sounds coming from your air conditioner is more than likely not a good signal. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s putting out 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 working. This will be helpful and give you an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.
Scheduled maintenance also helps highlight headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Set up an appointment with Gilray Heating and Cooling this spring to proactively ensure your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too hot, 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 in limbo as a result of a broken air conditioner.
