AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

April 27, 2015

The temperatures are on their way up in Norton 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 couple tips on what to be on the lookout for and signs that you might need to call in a pro to take a look at your air conditioner.

  • Air isn’t getting cold – Perhaps one of the most recognizable signs that your air conditioner isn’t working 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 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 may be something wrong. First, try to replace your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at HCE Systems Inc.
  • Odd sounds/clinking – Strange sounds coming from your air conditioner is likely 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 running effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically operates. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when on. This will be helpful and offer an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.

Routine maintenance also helps reveal headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Set up an appointment with HCE Systems Inc this spring to proactively make certain your air conditioner is ready to go.  

Before it gets too warm, test out your air conditioner to see how it runs so you can make any necessary 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.
