AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015The temperatures are on their way up in Orange County 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 be on the lookout for and signs that you may need to call in an expert to take a look at your air conditioner. Air isn’t getting cold – Perhaps one of the most obvious signs that your air conditioner isn’t working correctly is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t seeing 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 usual, there may be an issue. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at Ocean Air Conditioning. Odd sounds/clinking – Weird sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good signal. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s putting out 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 as a result of wear and tear When it’s working effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically sounds. 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. Scheduled maintenance also helps highlight problems before your air conditioner is out-of-service.
