The temperatures are rising in Menomonie and western Wisconsin 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 a few tips on what to look for and signs that you could need to call in an expert to take a look at your air conditioner.
- Air isn’t getting cold – Potentially one of the most recognizable signs that your air conditioner isn’t working 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 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 you’re used to, there could be an issue. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at Halverson Brothers Inc.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Weird sounds coming from your air conditioner is 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 due to wear and tear
When it’s working effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically sounds. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when working. This will be helpful and offer an understanding of what is typical behavior from your air conditioning system.
Routine maintenance also helps highlight issues before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Arrange an appointment with Halverson Brothers Inc 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 necessary 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 Halverson Brothers Inc a call at 715-352-4052 to set up an appointment.
