Cooling

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Winchester, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to keep comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be in need of AC repair.

We have some warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the experienced technicians from Thornberry Bros Inc to provide air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most noticeable proof that your air conditioner requires repair. The first 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 constantly blow air even if it’s not presently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to reach 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 think 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 uncomplicated 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 Thornberry Bros Inc.
  • Strange sounds – Weird 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 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 catch when things aren’t running properly.

Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual maintenance appointment with Thornberry Bros Inc, now is the perfect time.
