AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

Cooling

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

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

  • Air isn’t getting cold – Perhaps one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner isn’t working correctly 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 may be a problem. First, try to replace your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at AW Heating & Air Conditioning.
  • Odd sounds/clinking – Strange sounds coming from your air conditioner is more than likely not a good sign. 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 as a result of wear and tear

When it’s working effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically runs. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when on. This will be helpful and offer an understanding of what is typical behavior from your air conditioning system.

Regular maintenance also helps reveal issues before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Schedule an appointment with AW Heating & Air Conditioning 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 works so you can make any necessary repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort in limbo as a result of a broken air conditioner. If you see any signs that your air conditioner needs repair, give AW Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 402-438-7992 to set up an appointment.
