AC Repair Needed

AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

The temperatures are going up in Manassas Park and so are the chances that you’ll be turning on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. Greater usage 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 a professional to take a look at your air conditioner.

  • Air isn’t getting cold – Potentially one of the most obvious 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 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 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 Woody's Sudden Service Inc.
  • 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 after years of wear and tear

When it’s running effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically sounds. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when running. This will be helpful and provide you with an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.

Scheduled maintenance also helps highlight issues before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Set up an appointment with Woody's Sudden Service Inc this spring to proactively make sure your air conditioner is ready to go.  

Before it gets too warm, test out your air conditioner to see how it works so you can make any proper repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort compromised as a result of a broken air conditioner.
