AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

April 27, 2015

The temperatures are going up in Alice and so are the chances that you’ll be running your air conditioner to stay comfortable. More 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 an expert 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 working 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 you’re used to, there may be something wrong. First, try to replace your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the experts at Rescue Heating & Air .
  • Odd sounds/clinking – Strange sounds coming from your air conditioner is more than likely not a good signal. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s putting out 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 due to wear and tear

When it’s running 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 provide you with an understanding of what is typical behavior from your air conditioning system.

Scheduled maintenance also helps identify issues before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Schedule an appointment with Rescue Heating & Air this spring to proactively ensure 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 necessary repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort compromised as a result of a broken air conditioner.
