AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

April 27, 2015

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Plainfield, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be require 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 experts from PWA Heating & Cooling Inc to arrange air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most notable proof that your air conditioner has the need for repair. The initial thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and ensure that it’s set to “auto” rather than “on”. If it’s set to “on” your AC will continually blow air even if it’s not immediately being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to reach 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 concern 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 an issue. If you haven’t changed your air filter in a while, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as simple 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 PWA Heating & Cooling Inc.
  • Strange sounds – Peculiar noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a good sign. If you hear any clanking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, cranking the volume on your TV so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to fix the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner have been known to come loose through wear and tear and will have to be fixed by a professional.

Try to be cognizant of how your air conditioner sounds and works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to catch when things aren’t running correctly.

Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet booked your annual maintenance appointment with PWA Heating & Cooling Inc, now is the ideal time.
