AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

April 27, 2015

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

Here are some tips on what to be on the lookout for and signs that you could need to call in a pro to take a look at your air conditioner.

  • Air isn’t getting cold – Perhaps one of the most obvious signs that your air conditioner isn’t operating correctly is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t seeing 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 could 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 you’re used to, there might be an issue. First, try to change your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at Eco Fresh HVAC Inc..
  • Odd sounds/clinking – Weird sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good signal. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s making 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 runs. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when on. This will be helpful and give you an understanding of what is appropriate behavior from your air conditioning system.

Scheduled maintenance also helps identify issues before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Set up an appointment with Eco Fresh HVAC Inc. this spring to proactively make sure 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 proper repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort in limbo as a result of a broken air conditioner.
