AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

April 27, 2015

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

Here are a couple tips on what to look for and signs that you might need to call in a professional to take a look at your air conditioner.

  • Air isn’t getting cold – Possibly one of the most noticeable 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 may 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 usual, there may be something wrong. First, try to change your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at Gillman Heating and Air.
  • Odd sounds/clinking – Weird 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 functioning 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 give you an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.

Scheduled maintenance also helps highlight issues before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Set up an appointment with Gillman Heating and Air this spring to proactively make sure your air conditioner is ready to go.  

Before it gets too hot, test out your air conditioner to see how it operates so you can make any proper 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.
