Air isn’t getting cold – Possibly one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner isn’t running properly is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t seeing 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 may 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 could be an issue. First, try to replace your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at Gordon Air Conditioning. Odd sounds/clinking – Strange sounds coming from your air conditioner is more than likely not a good signal. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s putting out any unusual sounds such as clanking, buzzing or rattling.
