Keep in mind if it’s an extremely hot day, it may take longer for your home to cool down.

First, try to change your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at Quality Refrigeration. Odd sounds/clinking – Abnormal sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good sign.
