AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

Cooling

The temperatures are rising in Orange County and so are the chances that you’ll be running your air conditioner to stay comfortable. More usage also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.

Here are a few tips on what to look for and signs that you could need to call in a professional to take a look at your air conditioner.

  • Air isn’t getting cold – Possibly one of the most obvious signs that your air conditioner isn’t operating properly is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t noticing 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 you’re used to, there could be an issue. First, try to replace your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at Mighty Ducts.
  • Odd sounds/clinking – Weird sounds coming from your air conditioner is likely not a good sign. 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 runs. 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.

Routine maintenance also helps reveal issues before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Set up an appointment with Mighty Ducts this spring to proactively ensure your air conditioner is ready to go.  

Before it gets too hot, test out your air conditioner to see how it runs so you can make any appropriate repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort in limbo as a result of a broken air conditioner.
