Most people wait till their AC has completely died before calling a repair technician. However, there are some signs you can look out for so that you can get your AC fixed before you are left with a cooling emergency.
AC units typically are designed to run quietly. If you start hearing your air conditioner make some very loud noises, then it is time to call an AC expert. You may have loose parts that have vibrated out of place, or a part that is wearing out. Fixing or replacing that part may be a quick and cheap fix, rather than waiting for it to possibly damage your AC.
When you start noticing a dip in your airflow, it may be time to call a reputable air conditioning repair company. Try changing your air filter to see if it improves; if it doesn’t, it may be related to your air blower. Replacing a blower can be quite complex. Don’t try doing it yourself, or you risk damaging your air conditioner permanently.
Lack of Cool Air
The most common issue experienced with air conditioners is lack of cool air blowing from a vent. It may just be that you need a coolant refill. Coolant is a hazardous material that can cause some serious health effects if spilled, so it’s best to call a professional. If the problem is not the coolant, then it might be something much bigger. Either way, it is best to call a technician with extensive experience in AC repair.
To prevent big problems from happening, it is always best to get annual maintenance checks done on your AC unit. These can save you time and frustration by preventing an AC breakdown. If you have any questions about why your AC won’t work, contact us at (540) 373-5876.
