AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

April 27, 2015

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Magnolia, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be in need of AC repair.

We have a few warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the experienced technicians from JTech Mechanical to provide air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most notable proof that your air conditioner has the need for repair. The first 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 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 signals that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
  • Decreased air flow – This issue isn’t as easy to spot 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 in a while, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as straightforward as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing problems, you’ll want to call the professionals at JTech Mechanical.
  • Strange sounds – Peculiar noises coming from 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 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 repaired by a professional.

Try to be aware 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 correctly.

Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet booked your annual maintenance appointment with JTech Mechanical, now is the perfect time.
