The temperatures are rising in Hudsonville and so are the chances that you’ll be flipping on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. More usage also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.
Here are some tips on what to look for and signs that you might need to call in an expert to take a look at your air conditioner.
- Air isn’t getting cold – Possibly one of the most obvious signs that your air conditioner isn’t operating right 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 may 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 might be something wrong. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Strange sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good signal. 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 due to 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 offer an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.
Regular maintenance also helps identify problems before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Set up an appointment with West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services 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 operates 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 West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services a call at (616) 319-1436 to set up an appointment.
