AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Saint Charles, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be require AC repair.

We have a few warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s time to call in the experienced technicians from Air Alliance Team to arrange air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most notable indications that your air conditioner requires repair. The first 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 currently 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 think 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 for some time, 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 issues, you’ll want to call the professionals at Air Alliance Team.
  • Strange sounds – Bizarre noises coming 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 solve the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner can become loose through wear and tear and will have to be corrected 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 notice when things aren’t running correctly.

Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet made your your annual maintenance appointment with Air Alliance Team, now is the ideal time.
