AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015The temperatures are going up in Genoa 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 some tips on what to be on the lookout for and signs that you may need to call in a professional to take a look at your air conditioner. Air isn’t getting cold – Potentially one of the most obvious signs that your air conditioner isn’t working right is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t noticing 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 might 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 could be something wrong. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at Assured Appliance and Heating & Air. Odd sounds/clinking – Abnormal sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good signal. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s making 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 as a result of wear and tear When it’s working effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically runs. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when working. This will be helpful and offer an understanding of what is appropriate behavior from your air conditioning system. Regular maintenance also helps reveal problems before your air conditioner is out-of-service.
