AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

Cooling

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Dallas, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be in need of AC repair.

We have a few warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the experienced technicians from Tri County Air Care LLC to administer air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most notable indications that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The first 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 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 an indication 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 concern. If you haven’t changed your air filter in a while, 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 Tri County Air Care LLC.
  • Strange sounds – Weird noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any clanking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, putting on headphones so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to cure 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 mindful 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 correctly.

Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual maintenance appointment with Tri County Air Care LLC, now is the ideal time.
