AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

April 27, 2015

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Katy, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be in need of AC repair.

We have a few warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s time to call in the professionals from Goode Bros AC & Heating to provide air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most noticeable 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 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 reach 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 problem isn’t as apparent 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 simple as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing issues, you’ll want to call the professionals at Goode Bros AC & Heating.
  • Strange sounds – Peculiar noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a good sign. If you hear any banging 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 have been known to come loose through wear and tear and will have to be repaired by a professional.

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

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 Goode Bros AC & Heating, now is the ideal time.
