AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015The temperatures are going up in Safford and so are the chances that you’ll be flipping on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. Greater usage also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair. Here are a couple tips on what to look for and signs that you may need to call in a pro to take a look at your air conditioner. Air isn’t getting cold – Potentially one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner isn’t operating correctly is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t seeing the results in your home, it’s a good indication that you’ll need someone to check it out. Keep in mind if it’s an extremely hot day, it might take longer for your home to cool down. Decrease in airflow – If the air coming out of your vents doesn’t seem to be coming out as fast or strong as normal, there might be an issue. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at B&D Air Conditioning. Odd sounds/clinking – Strange sounds coming from your air conditioner is likely not a good signal. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s producing any unusual sounds such as clanking, buzzing or rattling. There are a lot of moving parts inside your air conditioner, which can become loose or damaged after years of wear and tear When it’s working effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically sounds. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when working. This will be helpful and give you an understanding of what is typical behavior from your air conditioning system. Scheduled maintenance also helps identify headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service.
