AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

April 27, 2015

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

We have a few warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s time to call in the experts from Premium Air Services LLC to administer air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most prominent proof that your air conditioner requires 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 steadily blow air even if it’s not presently 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 an indication 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 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 uncomplicated 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 Premium Air Services LLC.
  • Strange sounds – Bizarre noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a positive sign. If you hear any banging or rattling coming from your air conditioner, cranking the volume on your TV so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to solve the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner have been known to come loose through wear and tear and will have to be corrected by a professional.

Try to be cognizant of how your air conditioner sounds and works 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 determine any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual maintenance appointment with Premium Air Services LLC, now is an excellent time.
