The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Bend, which means you’re going to be counting 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 crucial to call in the experienced technicians from Tri County Climate Control LLC to arrange air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most prominent indications that your air conditioner has the need for repair. The key 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 constantly blow air even if it’s not immediately being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to get to the temperature set on your thermostat, that signals 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 concern. If you haven’t changed your air filter recently, 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 problems, you’ll want to call the professionals at Tri County Climate Control LLC.
- Strange sounds – Peculiar noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any clanking 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 can become 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 works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running smoothly.
Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual maintenance appointment with Tri County Climate Control LLC, now is the ideal time.
