AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

Cooling

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Rock Hill, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.

We have three warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the professionals from US Air Heating and Cooling to provide air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The initial thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and confirm that it’s set to “auto” rather than “on”. If it’s set to “on” your AC will steadily blow air even if it’s not presently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to achieve the temperature set on your thermostat, that is an indication that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
  • Decreased air flow – This issue isn’t as easy to spot 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 a problem. If you haven’t changed your air filter in a while, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as straightforward as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing issues, you’ll want to call the professionals at US Air Heating and Cooling.
  • Strange sounds – Peculiar noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any clinking 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 repaired by a professional.

Try to be mindful of how your air conditioner sounds and functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot when things aren’t running smoothly.

Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet made your your annual maintenance appointment with US Air Heating and Cooling, now is an excellent time.
