The temperatures are rising in Newark 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 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 – Perhaps one of the most recognizable signs that your air conditioner isn’t running correctly is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t noticing 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 usual, there may be an issue. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at Luikart Heating & Cooling.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Strange sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good sign. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s producing 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 as a result of wear and tear
When it’s functioning effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically runs. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when on. This will be helpful and offer an understanding of what is appropriate behavior from your air conditioning system.
Scheduled maintenance also helps identify headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Arrange an appointment with Luikart Heating & Cooling this spring to proactively make sure 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 in limbo as a result of a broken air conditioner.
