AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Alliance, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.

We have some warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the experts from Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces to arrange air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most prominent signs that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The initial thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and confirm that it’s set to “auto” rather than “on”. If it’s set to “on” your AC will constantly blow air even if it’s not currently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to reach the temperature set on your thermostat, that is a sign that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
  • Decreased air flow – This problem isn’t as obvious as the previous, but if you feel the air coming from your vents isn’t flowing as strongly as it had previously, there could be a problem. If you haven’t changed your air filter recently, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as uncomplicated as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces.
  • Strange sounds – Peculiar noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any clinking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, turning your TV up so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to fix the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner can become loose through wear and tear and will have to be repaired by a professional.

Try to be mindful of how your air conditioner sounds and functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot when things aren’t running smoothly.

Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet booked your annual maintenance appointment with Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces, now is the ideal time.
