The warmer weather is just around the corner, which means that you will want your air conditioner working in prime condition. Now is a good time to go ahead and test your air conditioner. While Lamco Systems is happy to come perform our air conditioning service, we tend to get very busy during the summer. Testing out your air conditioner now and determining whether or not it needs to be replaced will save you a lot of trouble in the long run. Here are some signs that your air conditioner may need to be replaced before the summer heat hits:

Little to no cool air

This is perhaps the most obvious sign of a faulty air conditioner. When your air conditioner doesn’t blow cool air, it is not performing its main function. If you put your air conditioner on full blast and still find that the air is not cold or is not as cool as it should be, it is a sign that your air conditioner needs repair. A lack of cool air indicates that either your compressor has failed, or your Freon levels are too low. Either way, your AC system may need to be replaced.

Weak air flow

Another problem that you may find when you turn on your air conditioner is that the air flow is lower than normal. It is common for failing air conditioners to only keep some rooms cool, while in other rooms, the air flow is too weak to cool the whole area. If this is the case, it could mean that your AC vents simply need to be cleaned out, but it could also indicate a more serious problem. It is best to call Lamco Systems to come perform air conditioning service in your Merrimack Valley home.
