The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Beaverton, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to keep comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.
We have three warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the professionals from Garoken Energy Co. Inc. to administer air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most prominent indications that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The first thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and establish 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 immediately being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to achieve the temperature set on your thermostat, that is an indication that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
- Decreased air flow – This concern isn’t as easy to spot as the previous, but if you feel the air coming from your vents isn’t flowing as strongly as it had previously, there could be a problem. If you haven’t changed your air filter for some time, 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 troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at Garoken Energy Co. Inc..
- Strange sounds – Peculiar noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a positive sign. If you hear any clanking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, putting on headphones so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to fix the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner are cabapble of becoming loose through wear and tear and will have to be corrected by a professional.
Try to be aware of how your air conditioner sounds and operates when it’s running well. This will make it easier to catch 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 Garoken Energy Co. Inc., now is the perfect time.
