Here are a couple tips on what to look for and signs that you could need to call in a pro to take a look at your air conditioner. Air isn’t getting cold – Possibly one of the most recognizable signs that your air conditioner isn’t operating properly is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t feeling 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 usual, there may be something wrong. First, try to change your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at Air Patrol Air Conditioning & Heating of Texas. Odd sounds/clinking – Abnormal sounds coming from your air conditioner is likely not a good sign. 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 as a result of wear and tear When it’s working effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically operates. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when running. This will be helpful and offer an understanding of what is appropriate behavior from your air conditioning system.
