AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

Cooling

The temperatures are on their way up in Pacheco and so are the chances that you’ll be flipping on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. An increase in use also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.

Here are a few tips on what to watch for and signs that you could need to call in an expert to take a look at your air conditioner.

  • Air isn’t getting cold – Potentially one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner isn’t operating right is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t feeling the results in your home, it’s a good indication that you’ll need someone to check it out. Keep in mind if it’s an extremely hot day, it could take longer for your home to cool down.
  • Decrease in airflow – If the air coming out of your vents doesn’t seem to be coming out as fast or strong as normal, there might be a problem. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at Clean Air HVAC.
  • Odd sounds/clinking – Strange sounds coming from your air conditioner is likely not a good thing. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s putting out any unusual sounds such as clanking, buzzing or rattling. There are a lot of moving parts inside your air conditioner, which can become loose or damaged due to wear and tear

When it’s running effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically operates. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when working. This will be helpful and offer an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.

Routine maintenance also helps highlight headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Schedule an appointment with Clean Air HVAC this spring to proactively make certain your air conditioner is ready to go.  

Before it gets too hot, test out your air conditioner to see how it runs so you can make any appropriate repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort in limbo as a result of a broken air conditioner.
