AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

Cooling

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

We have some warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s time to call in the experts from Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. to arrange air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most noticeable proof that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The key 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 is an indication that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
  • Decreased air flow – This concern isn’t as obvious 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 problems, you’ll want to call the professionals at Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc..
  • 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 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 corrected by a professional.

Try to be aware of how your air conditioner sounds and works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot when things aren’t running smoothly.

Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet made your your annual maintenance appointment with Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc., now is an excellent time.
