AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

April 27, 2015

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

We have three warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the experienced technicians from Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC to provide air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most noticeable indications that your air conditioner has the need for repair. The initial 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 reach 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 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 a concern. If you haven’t changed your air filter for some time, 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 Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC.
  • Strange sounds – Peculiar noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a positive 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 solve 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 aware of how your air conditioner sounds and functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running correctly.

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 Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC, now is the perfect time.
