The temperatures are rising in Omaha 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 couple tips on what to look 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 noticeable signs that your air conditioner isn’t working properly is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t feeling 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 could 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 you’re used to, there could be something wrong. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at Interstate Heating & Air Conditioning.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Strange sounds coming from your air conditioner is likely not a good sign. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s putting out 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 after years of wear and tear
When it’s functioning effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically operates. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when working. This will be helpful and give you 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. Schedule an appointment with Interstate Heating & Air Conditioning this spring to proactively make certain your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too hot, test out your air conditioner to see how it works 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. If you see any signs that your air conditioner needs repair, give Interstate Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 402-509-5940 to set up an appointment.
