AC Repair Needed

AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Derby, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be require AC repair.

We have three warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s time to call in the experts from Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning to provide air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most prominent indications that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The initial thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and establish 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 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 signals 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 suspect the air coming from your vents isn’t flowing as strongly as it had previously, there could be a problem. If you haven’t changed your air filter for some time, 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 Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning.
  • Strange sounds – Bizarre noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a welcome 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 fix 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 mindful of how your air conditioner sounds and functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to catch when things aren’t running properly.

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 Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning, now is the perfect time.
