The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Odessa, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to remain 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 crucial to call in the experts from Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning to administer air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most prominent signs that your air conditioner requires repair. The initial thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and establish 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 is a sign that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
- Decreased air flow – This concern isn’t as easy to spot 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 troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning.
- Strange sounds – Peculiar noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a positive sign. If you hear any clinking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, cranking the volume on your TV so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to fix 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 mindful of how your air conditioner sounds and functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot when things aren’t running correctly.
Keeping up with yearly 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 Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning, now is the ideal time.
