AC Repair Needed

AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

The temperatures are on their way up in Greater Richmond 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 might need to call in a professional to take a look at your air conditioner.

  • Air isn’t getting cold – Potentially one of the most recognizable signs that your air conditioner isn’t operating right is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t feeling 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 may 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 usual, there could be an issue. First, try to change your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the experts at Herman Allen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling.
  • Odd sounds/clinking – Strange sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good thing. 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 due to wear and tear

When it’s working 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 offer an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.

Routine maintenance also helps highlight problems before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Set up an appointment with Herman Allen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling this spring to proactively ensure 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 necessary repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort tested as a result of a broken air conditioner. If you see any signs that your air conditioner needs repair, give Herman Allen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling a call at 804-302-6657 to set up an appointment.
