AC Repair Needed

AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Dresden, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be in need of AC repair.

We have three warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the experienced technicians from McFadden Heating & Cooling to arrange air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most notable indications that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The first thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and confirm that it’s set to “auto” rather than “on”. If it’s set to “on” your AC will steadily blow air even if it’s not presently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to reach the temperature set on your thermostat, that signals that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
  • Decreased air flow – This concern isn’t as apparent 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 a concern. If you haven’t changed your air filter for some time, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as straightforward as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing problems, you’ll want to call the professionals at McFadden Heating & Cooling.
  • Strange sounds – Bizarre noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any banging or rattling coming from your air conditioner, turning your TV up so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to solve 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 aware of how your air conditioner sounds and functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot when things aren’t running smoothly.

Keeping up with annual 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 McFadden Heating & Cooling, now is an excellent time.
