The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Bossier City, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be in need of AC repair.
We have some warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s time to call in the experienced technicians from Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning to provide air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most notable signs 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 signals that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
- Decreased air flow – This concern isn’t as apparent 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 a concern. If you haven’t changed your air filter for some time, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as uncomplicated as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning.
- Strange sounds – Weird noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a good sign. If you hear any clanking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, turning your TV up so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to cure the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner can become loose through wear and tear and will have to be corrected by a professional.
Try to be cognizant 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 booked your annual maintenance appointment with Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning, now is the perfect time.
