AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

Cooling

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Manassas Park, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to keep comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.

We have three warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the experts from Woody's Sudden Service Inc to administer air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most notable indications that your air conditioner has the need for repair. The initial 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 constantly blow air even if it’s not immediately being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to achieve the temperature set on your thermostat, that signals that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
  • Decreased air flow – This problem isn’t as obvious 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 an issue. If you haven’t changed your air filter for some time, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as uncomplicated as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at Woody's Sudden Service Inc.
  • Strange sounds – Bizarre noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a good sign. If you hear any clanking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, putting on headphones so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to cure the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner can become loose through wear and tear and will have to be fixed by a professional.

Try to be cognizant of how your air conditioner sounds and works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running properly.

Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual maintenance appointment with Woody's Sudden Service Inc, now is the ideal time.
