AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

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

We have some warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the professionals from Air Temperature Control to arrange air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most prominent indications that your air conditioner is in need of 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 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 is a sign that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
  • Decreased air flow – This problem isn’t as easy to spot 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 problem. 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 Air Temperature Control.
  • Strange sounds – Peculiar noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any banging or rattling coming from your air conditioner, turning your TV up so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to cure the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner can become loose through wear and tear and will have to be corrected 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 notice when things aren’t running correctly.

Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual maintenance appointment with Air Temperature Control, now is the ideal time.
