AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

April 27, 2015

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Circleville, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.

We have a few warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the experienced technicians from Stephen Hurst Pack Heating and Cooling, Inc to arrange air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most prominent proof that your air conditioner has the need for repair. The first 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 constantly blow air even if it’s not presently 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 an indication that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
  • Decreased air flow – This concern isn’t as obvious 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 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 Stephen Hurst Pack Heating and Cooling, Inc.
  • Strange sounds – Bizarre noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any clinking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, turning your TV up 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 repaired by a professional.

Try to be aware 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 smoothly.

Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet booked your annual maintenance appointment with Stephen Hurst Pack Heating and Cooling, Inc, now is the perfect time.
