The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Bishop, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be in need of AC repair.
We have three warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s time to call in the professionals from Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning to arrange air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most notable indications that your air conditioner has the need for repair. The initial 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 presently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to achieve the temperature set on your thermostat, that signals that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
- Decreased air flow – This concern isn’t as apparent 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 a problem. If you haven’t changed your air filter for some time, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as uncomplicated 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 Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning.
- Strange sounds – Bizarre noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any clanking 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 are cabapble of becoming loose through wear and tear and will have to be repaired 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 spot when things aren’t running properly.
Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual maintenance appointment with Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning, now is the perfect time.
