The temperatures are going up in Saint Petersburg and so are the chances that you’ll be running your air conditioner to stay comfortable. An increase in use also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.
Here are a few 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 – Potentially 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 seeing 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 usual, there may be an issue. First, try to replace your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Abnormal sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably 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 due to wear and tear
When it’s functioning effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically operates. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when running. This will be helpful and give you an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.
Scheduled maintenance also helps highlight issues before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Arrange an appointment with Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc this spring to proactively make certain your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too hot, test out your air conditioner to see how it operates so you can make any appropriate 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 Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc a call at 727-369-6195 to set up an appointment.
