AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

April 27, 2015

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Grand Prairie, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be have to depend upon 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 experienced technicians from Bon Air Service Company to administer air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most notable signs that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The key thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and establish 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 presently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to reach the temperature set on your thermostat, that signals that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
  • Decreased air flow – This problem isn’t as obvious 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 a problem. If you haven’t changed your air filter recently, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as simple as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at Bon Air Service Company.
  • Strange sounds – Bizarre noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any clanking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, turning your TV up so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to cure the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner can become loose through wear and tear and will have to be repaired by a professional.

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

Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet made your your annual maintenance appointment with Bon Air Service Company, now is the perfect time.
