AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

Cooling

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Muskogee, 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 possibility you’ll be in need of AC repair.

We have three warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the professionals from Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc. to administer air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most notable proof that your air conditioner requires repair. The key thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and confirm 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 currently 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 issue isn’t as apparent as the previous, but if you feel 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 in a while, 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 Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc..
  • Strange sounds – Bizarre noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a positive 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 are cabapble of becoming 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 functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running correctly.

Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual maintenance appointment with Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc., now is an excellent time.
