AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

Cooling

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Marshfield, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to keep comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be in need of AC repair.

We have some warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s time to call in the professionals from House of Heating Incorporated to arrange air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most notable indications that your air conditioner has the need for repair. The key 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 constantly blow air even if it’s not currently 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 an indication that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
  • Decreased air flow – This problem isn’t as apparent as the previous, but if you feel 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 recently, 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 troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at House of Heating Incorporated.
  • Strange sounds – Peculiar noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any clinking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, cranking the volume on your TV so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to fix 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 operates when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot when things aren’t running smoothly.

Keeping up with regular 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 House of Heating Incorporated, now is the perfect time.
