The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Manassas, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.
We have a few warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s time to call in the professionals from Woody's Sudden Service Inc to arrange air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most prominent signs 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 constantly blow air even if it’s not currently 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 signals that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
- Decreased air flow – This problem 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 an issue. If you haven’t changed your air filter recently, 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 troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at Woody's Sudden Service Inc.
- Strange sounds – Peculiar noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any banging or rattling coming from your air conditioner, putting on headphones so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to solve the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner can become loose through wear and tear and will have to be fixed by a professional.
Try to be mindful of how your air conditioner sounds and works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to catch when things aren’t running correctly.
Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet made your your annual maintenance appointment with Woody's Sudden Service Inc, now is an excellent time.
