AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Alice, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be require 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 experienced technicians from Rescue Heating & Air to provide air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most prominent signs that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The first thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and establish that it’s set to “auto” rather than “on”. If it’s set to “on” your AC will steadily blow air even if it’s not currently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to get to the temperature set on your thermostat, that signals 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 think the air coming from your vents isn’t flowing as strongly as it had previously, there could be an issue. If you haven’t changed your air filter in a while, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as straightforward 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 Rescue Heating & Air .
  • Strange sounds – Weird noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any banging or rattling coming from your air conditioner, cranking the volume on your TV so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to cure the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner are cabapble of becoming loose through wear and tear and will have to be fixed 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.
