The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in West Valley City, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.
We have some warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the experienced technicians from Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning to administer air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most notable signs that your air conditioner has the need for 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 steadily blow air even if it’s not immediately being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to achieve 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 concern isn’t as easy to spot as the previous, but if you feel 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 for some time, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as simple as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing issues, you’ll want to call the professionals at Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning.
- Strange sounds – Weird noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a positive sign. If you hear any clinking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, putting on headphones so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to fix the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner have been known to come loose through wear and tear and will have to be repaired by a professional.
Try to be mindful of how your air conditioner sounds and functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running properly.
Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet booked your annual maintenance appointment with Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning, now is the ideal time.
