AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

April 27, 2015

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Northglenn, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be have to depend upon 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 experts from Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, 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 has the need for 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 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 achieve 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 problem 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 an issue. 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 troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc..
  • Strange sounds – Bizarre noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any banging or rattling coming from your air conditioner, putting on headphones so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to solve the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner are cabapble of becoming 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 functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running properly.

Keeping up with annual 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 Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc., now is the ideal time.
