AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

April 27, 2015

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Belton, 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 possibility you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.

We have a few warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the experienced technicians from Bell Air Conditioning Inc. to administer air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most noticeable indications that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The first 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 constantly blow air even if it’s not currently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to get to 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 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 an issue. If you haven’t changed your air filter recently, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as straightforward 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 Bell Air Conditioning Inc..
  • Strange sounds – Bizarre noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a good 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 solve 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 aware 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 smoothly.

Keeping up with annual 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 Bell Air Conditioning Inc., now is the ideal time.
