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 might 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 usual, there could be something wrong. First, try to change your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at Desert Suns Heating & Cooling. Odd sounds/clinking – Weird sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good thing.
