AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

April 27, 2015

The temperatures are on their way up in Plover 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 couple tips on what to watch for and signs that you might need to call in an expert to take a look at your air conditioner.

  • Air isn’t getting cold – Potentially one of the most noticeable 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 feeling 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 might be a problem. First, try to replace your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at Point Heating & Cooling.
  • Odd sounds/clinking – Strange sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good sign. 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 after years of wear and tear

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

Regular maintenance also helps highlight headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Schedule an appointment with Point Heating & Cooling this spring to proactively make certain your air conditioner is ready to go.  

Before it gets too warm, test out your air conditioner to see how it runs so you can make any appropriate 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.
