AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

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 greater the chance you’ll be require AC repair.

We have a few 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 likely one of the most notable 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 constantly 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 a sign that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
  • Decreased air flow – This concern isn’t as easy to spot 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 for some time, 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 – Bizarre noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any banging 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 can become loose through wear and tear and will have to be corrected 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 spot when things aren’t running correctly.
