AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in West Columbia, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be require AC repair.

We have a few warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s time to call in the professionals from Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. to provide air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most noticeable proof that your air conditioner has the need for repair. The initial thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and ensure that it’s set to “auto” rather than “on”. If it’s set to “on” your AC will continually blow air even if it’s not immediately being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to achieve the temperature set on your thermostat, that signals 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 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 recently, 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 City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc..
  • Strange sounds – Weird noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a good sign. If you hear any banging or rattling coming from your air conditioner, cranking the volume on your TV so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to fix the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner have been known to come loose through wear and tear and will have to be repaired by a professional.

Try to be cognizant 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 correctly.

Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual maintenance appointment with Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc., now is the perfect time.
