AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

April 27, 2015

The temperatures are rising in Wyandotte and so are the chances that you’ll be turning 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 look for and signs that you might need to call in a pro to take a look at your air conditioner.

  • Air isn’t getting cold – Perhaps one of the most recognizable signs that your air conditioner isn’t working properly is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t seeing 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 might be something wrong. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the experts at Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning.
  • Odd sounds/clinking – Abnormal sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good sign. 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 due to wear and tear

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

Routine maintenance also helps reveal headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Arrange an appointment with Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning this spring to proactively ensure 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 necessary repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort tested as a result of a broken air conditioner.
