AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

April 27, 2015

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

We have three warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the professionals from True Temp Heating & Air Inc to administer air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most prominent indications that your air conditioner requires repair. The key 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 constantly blow air even if it’s not immediately being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to get to 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 think 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 for some time, 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 True Temp Heating & Air Inc.
  • Strange sounds – Weird noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any banging or rattling coming from your air conditioner, turning your TV up so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to fix the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner are cabapble of becoming loose through wear and tear and will have to be corrected by a professional.

Try to be aware 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 properly.

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 True Temp Heating & Air Inc, now is the perfect time.
