AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015The temperatures are on their way up in Rocky Mount and so are the chances that you’ll be flipping on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. An increase in use also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair. Here are some tips on what to watch 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 – Perhaps one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner isn’t operating correctly is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t feeling 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 may 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 normal, there might be something wrong. First, try to change your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at Davis Heating & Air Conditioning. 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 making 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 functioning effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically runs. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when running. This will be helpful and offer an understanding of what is appropriate behavior from your air conditioning system.
