AC Repair Needed

AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

The temperatures are rising in Mount Pleasant and so are the chances that you’ll be turning on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. More usage also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.

Here are a couple tips on what to watch for and signs that you might need to call in an expert to take a look at your air conditioner.

  • Air isn’t getting cold – Possibly one of the most recognizable signs that your air conditioner isn’t working 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 normal, there may be a problem. First, try to replace your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the experts at Olde Towne Heating & Air.
  • Odd sounds/clinking – Weird sounds coming from your air conditioner is 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 after years of wear and tear

When it’s functioning effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically sounds. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when on. This will be helpful and give you an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.

Regular maintenance also helps reveal issues before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Schedule an appointment with Olde Towne Heating & Air this spring to proactively make certain your air conditioner is ready to go.  

Before it gets too toasty, test out your air conditioner to see how it operates so you can make any appropriate repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort compromised as a result of a broken air conditioner.
