Many homeowners have no clue when the proper time is to repair their appliances. Until something completely breaks down and they have to scurry to find a solution. However, you need not wait for a disaster to strike to fix or replace your AC unit.
Here are telltale signs that it is time to invite an expert in to take a look at your unit.
The airflow is no longer the same
If you have noticed that there is reduced airflow from your AC unit, chances are something’s wrong in there. Check the airflow by placing your hand near the vent. Then turn on the airflow to the maximum.
If there is little or no difference, HVAC expert Desert Star Heating and Air suggests you have an AC repair specialist from Riverton take a look at the system.
You keep hearing rumbling noises
If, upon turning on your AC, the first response you get is a rattling sound, then your unit is trying to tell you something. There is a chance that something in there is either loose or broken. Leave things that way, and soon there will be more loose or broken parts.
The thermostat has stopped working
If your AC no longer responds to the thermostat, then there is a problem with the unit. The alternative, of course, is that the thermostat itself is faulty. Either way, that is a sign that it is time to get a specialist to examine the two.
There is no cool air anymore
Your AC is designed to cool your home during the sweltering heat of the summer. If it is not doing that, then there is trouble. A good way to establish this is by measuring the temperature of the air from the unit.
Then test the air in your house when you turn on the thermostat. If there is no difference, bring in the technician.
There are several ways to know when it is time to fix your AC unit. By taking early measures once you notice these signs, you can prevent things from getting worse.
