The temperatures are rising in Albuquerque and so are the chances that you’ll be flipping on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. An increase in use also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.
Here are some tips on what to be on the lookout 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 – Potentially 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 noticing 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 may be a problem. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at I-Deal HVAC.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Abnormal sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good sign. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s making 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 running effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically operates. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when on. This will be helpful and provide you with an understanding of what is typical behavior from your air conditioning system.
Scheduled maintenance also helps highlight headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Schedule an appointment with I-Deal HVAC this spring to proactively make certain your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too toasty, test out your air conditioner to see how it runs so you can make any proper 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 I-Deal HVAC a call at 505-445-1250 to set up an appointment.
