More usage also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair. Here are a few tips on what to watch 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 running correctly 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 could 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 might be something wrong. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the experts at Campbell's Tempracure. Odd sounds/clinking – Weird sounds coming from your air conditioner is likely not a good signal.
