AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Wheeling, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.

We have a few warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s time to call in the experts from Local HVAC Repair & Service to administer air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most prominent proof that your air conditioner requires repair. The key 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 immediately being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to achieve the temperature set on your thermostat, that signals that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
  • Decreased air flow – This concern isn’t as easy to spot 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 a problem. If you haven’t changed your air filter in a while, 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 problems, you’ll want to call the professionals at Local HVAC Repair & Service .
  • 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 corrected by a professional.

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

Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet made your your annual maintenance appointment with Local HVAC Repair & Service , now is the ideal time.
