AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

April 27, 2015

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

We have three warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s time to call in the experienced technicians from KDM Service Corporation to provide air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most prominent proof that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The initial 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 continually 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 is an indication that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
  • Decreased air flow – This concern isn’t as obvious as the previous, but if you feel the air coming from your vents isn’t flowing as strongly as it had previously, there could be a problem. 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 KDM Service Corporation.
  • Strange sounds – Weird noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a good 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 fix 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 correctly.

Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual maintenance appointment with KDM Service Corporation, now is the ideal time.
