AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

Cooling

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Marshall, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to keep comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be in need of AC repair.

We have some warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the professionals from All Elements Heating & Air LLC to administer air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most noticeable indications that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The first thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and establish 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 signals that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
  • Decreased air flow – This problem isn’t as apparent as the previous, but if you suspect 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 recently, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as uncomplicated as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing problems, you’ll want to call the professionals at All Elements Heating & Air LLC.
  • Strange sounds – Bizarre noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a good sign. If you hear any banging 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 can become 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 notice when things aren’t running properly.

Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet made your your annual maintenance appointment with All Elements Heating & Air LLC, now is the perfect time.
