The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Manassas, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you depend 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 advice to let you know when it’s time to call in the professionals from Air-Right Energy Design, Inc. to arrange air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most prominent proof that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The key 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 constantly blow air even if it’s not presently 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 an indication that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
- Decreased air flow – This issue isn’t as obvious 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 a problem. 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 Air-Right Energy Design, Inc..
- Strange sounds – Peculiar noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a positive sign. If you hear any banging or rattling coming from your air conditioner, turning your TV up so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to solve the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner are cabapble of becoming loose through wear and tear and will have to be repaired by a professional.
Try to be aware of how your air conditioner sounds and operates when it’s running well. This will make it easier to catch when things aren’t running correctly.
Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual maintenance appointment with Air-Right Energy Design, Inc., now is the ideal time.
