AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015The temperatures are going up in Minocqua and so are the chances that you’ll be turning on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. An increase in use 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 recognizable signs that your air conditioner isn’t working properly 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 might be an issue. First, try to swap out your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the team at Danco Heating & Cooling. Odd sounds/clinking – Abnormal sounds coming from your air conditioner is likely not a good sign. 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 running effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically sounds. 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. Scheduled maintenance also helps reveal problems before your air conditioner is out-of-service.
