The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Norco and St. Charles Parish, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.
We have some warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the professionals from Mayeuxs AC & Heating to provide air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most prominent indications that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The initial thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and ensure that it’s set to “auto” rather than “on”. If it’s set to “on” your AC will steadily 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 a concern. If you haven’t changed your air filter in a while, 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 problems, you’ll want to call the professionals at Mayeuxs AC & Heating.
- Strange sounds – Bizarre noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a positive 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 are cabapble of becoming loose through wear and tear and will have to be repaired by a professional.
Try to be mindful of how your air conditioner sounds and operates when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running correctly.
Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet booked your annual maintenance appointment with Mayeuxs AC & Heating, now is the perfect time.
