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 may be a problem. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at Colvin's Inc. Odd sounds/clinking – Strange sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good signal.
