The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Oxford, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be in need of AC repair.
We have some warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the experienced technicians from Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc to administer air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most noticeable 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 confirm 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 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 obvious 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 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 straightforward 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 Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.
- Strange sounds – Bizarre noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a good sign. If you hear any clinking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, putting on headphones so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to cure the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner have been known to come loose through wear and tear and will have to be corrected by a professional.
Try to be aware 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 smoothly.
Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual maintenance appointment with Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc, now is the ideal time.
