AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

Cooling

The temperatures are on their way up in Tuscaloosa and so are the chances that you’ll be flipping 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 look for and signs that you could need to call in an expert to take a look at your air conditioner.

  • Air isn’t getting cold – Potentially one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner isn’t running right 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 you’re used to, there could be something wrong. First, try to change your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at KDM Service Corporation.
  • Odd sounds/clinking – Abnormal 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 functioning 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.

Regular maintenance also helps identify problems before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Schedule an appointment with KDM Service Corporation this spring to proactively ensure 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 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. If you see any signs that your air conditioner needs repair, give KDM Service Corporation a call at 205-208-8090 to set up an appointment.
