AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015The temperatures are rising in Bountiful and so are the chances that you’ll be turning on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. Greater usage also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair. Here are a few tips on what to watch for and signs that you might need to call in a professional 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 running right is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t noticing 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 usual, there could be something wrong. First, try to replace your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the experts at Craig's Appliance Heating & Cooling. Odd sounds/clinking – Weird sounds coming from your air conditioner is more than likely not a good thing. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s putting out 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 working effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically operates. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when working. This will be helpful and offer an understanding of what is appropriate behavior from your air conditioning system. Scheduled maintenance also helps identify headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service.
