The temperatures are rising in Moline and so are the chances that you’ll be running your air conditioner to stay comfortable. Greater usage also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.
Here are some tips on what to watch for and signs that you may 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 running 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 might 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 normal, there may be an issue. First, try to replace your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at J.L. Brady Company LLC.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Abnormal sounds coming from your air conditioner is more than likely not a good signal. 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 as a result of wear and tear
When it’s running 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 offer an understanding of what is appropriate behavior from your air conditioning system.
Regular maintenance also helps highlight problems before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Schedule an appointment with J.L. Brady Company LLC this spring to proactively ensure your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too toasty, 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 tested as a result of a broken air conditioner. If you see any signs that your air conditioner needs repair, give J.L. Brady Company LLC a call at 309-517-7511 to set up an appointment.
