With spring officially here, even if the temperature doesn’t reflect it yet, it will only be a matter of time until we start feeling the effects of another warm Haverhill summer. It’s no secret that as temperatures begin to climb we start depending more and more on our air conditioners so that we can escape the heat and stay comfortable.

As it is with most everything, the more you use it, the greater the chance that parts can begin to wear out or will require service. Air conditioners are no exception to this rule. So if it’s been a while since you’ve had your air conditioner serviced, the chance for an air conditioner repair is likely increasing too.

Now is the perfect time to flip on your air conditioner to see if there is anything out of the ordinary going on with your system so you can get it checked out. A few of the most common things we suggest looking for are:

  • Air That Doesn’t Get Cold – It seems like something you’d notice pretty quickly, but you’d be surprised how many people flip on their air conditioner and don’t realize it isn’t providing cold air until it really heats up outside. If you’ve already noticed this and tried to adjust your thermostat, but still aren’t noticing any change in the air temperature, it may be time to give us a call.
  • Decreased Airflow – If you put your hand over a vent in your home and it feels like the air coming out of it doesn’t seem to be coming out as strong as it usually does, there is a chance you have a problem. One of the first things to do is to replace your air filter. Dirty air filters can cause a lot of issues with air conditioners and is a relatively easy fix that you can likely do on your own.
  • Strange Noises – We wouldn’t say that it’s normal to hear clanking or banging sounds coming from your air conditioner, so if you hear these, you may need the help of a pro. Air conditioners have a lot of moving parts to them, both inside and out, so it’s not uncommon to have something come loose and get damaged from regular use over time.

Just because you haven’t had your system serviced doesn’t mean that repair is inevitable though. Even if Haverhill experiences record temps this summer, your system could work just fine. However, why risk it going out on the hottest day in July? The team at Andrew DiPietro’s Climate Zone is available 24/7 to help take care of anything that’s going on with your air conditioner.
