The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Florissant, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be in need of AC repair.
We have three warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the experts from B & B Heating & Cooling to provide air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most prominent signs that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The initial thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and ensure 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 signals that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
- Decreased air flow – This concern isn’t as obvious as the previous, but if you think 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 problems, you’ll want to call the professionals at B & B Heating & Cooling.
- Strange sounds – Bizarre noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any banging or rattling coming from your air conditioner, cranking the volume on your TV so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to solve the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner have been known to come loose through wear and tear and will have to be fixed by a professional.
Try to be cognizant of how your air conditioner sounds and works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot 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 booked your annual maintenance appointment with B & B Heating & Cooling, now is an excellent time.
