AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

April 27, 2015

The temperatures are going up in Long Beach and so are the chances that you’ll be running your air conditioner to stay comfortable. Greater usage also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.

Here are a few tips on what to look for and signs that you could need to call in a professional to take a look at your air conditioner.

  • Air isn’t getting cold – Possibly one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner isn’t running 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 could 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 you’re used to, there may be a problem. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the experts at YES R&M Inc..
  • Odd sounds/clinking – Weird sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good thing. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s making 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 due to 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 working. This will be helpful and give you an understanding of what is appropriate behavior from your air conditioning system.

Regular maintenance also helps identify headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Arrange an appointment with YES R&M Inc. this spring to proactively make sure your air conditioner is ready to go.  

Before it gets too hot, test out your air conditioner to see how it operates 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.
