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 may be something wrong. First, try to change your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at Anderson Heating & A/C.
