AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

Cooling

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Westminster, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to keep comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the more likely 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 time to call in the experienced technicians from True Heating & Cooling to arrange air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most notable proof that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The first thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and ensure 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 is a sign that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
  • Decreased air flow – This issue isn’t as apparent 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 simple 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 True Heating & Cooling.
  • Strange sounds – Peculiar noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a positive sign. If you hear any clanking 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 repaired by a professional.

Try to be aware 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 correctly.

Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet made your your annual maintenance appointment with True Heating & Cooling, now is the perfect time.
