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 normal, there could be an issue. First, try to replace your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at James Heating & A/C, Inc.
