AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

April 27, 2015

The temperatures are going up in Thedford and so are the chances that you’ll be flipping on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. An increase in use also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.

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

  • Air isn’t getting cold – Possibly one of the most obvious signs that your air conditioner isn’t running 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 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 usual, there might be a problem. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning.
  • Odd sounds/clinking – Weird sounds coming from your air conditioner is more than likely not a good signal. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s producing 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 after years of wear and tear

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

Routine maintenance also helps identify problems before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Set up an appointment with Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning this spring to proactively make sure your air conditioner is ready to go.  

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