The temperatures are rising in Gresham 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 a few tips on what to be on the lookout for and signs that you may need to call in a professional 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 correctly 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 might 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 something wrong. First, try to replace your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at Honke Heating & AC.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Strange sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good thing. 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 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 provide you with 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. Schedule an appointment with Honke Heating & AC this spring to proactively make certain your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too warm, test out your air conditioner to see how it works so you can make any necessary repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort in limbo as a result of a broken air conditioner. If you see any signs that your air conditioner needs repair, give Honke Heating & AC a call at 503-663-8033 to set up an appointment.
