AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

April 27, 2015

The temperatures are going up in Alliance and so are the chances that you’ll be turning on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. Greater usage also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.

Here are a few tips on what to be on the lookout for and signs that you could need to call in a pro to take a look at your air conditioner.

  • Air isn’t getting cold – Perhaps one of the most obvious signs that your air conditioner isn’t operating correctly is if the air coming out is warm. 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 swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces.
  • Odd sounds/clinking – Strange sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good signal. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s making any unusual sounds such as clanking, buzzing or rattling. There are a lot of moving parts inside your air conditioner, which can become loose or damaged as a result of wear and tear

When it’s working effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically runs. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when on. This will be helpful and offer an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.

Regular maintenance also helps identify headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Schedule an appointment with Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces this spring to proactively make certain your air conditioner is ready to go.  

Before it gets too hot, test out your air conditioner to see how it runs so you can make any necessary repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort in limbo as a result of a broken air conditioner.
