AC Repair Needed

AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Winnipeg, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.

We have some warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s time to call in the experienced technicians from Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning to provide air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most noticeable indications that your air conditioner requires repair. The initial thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and ensure 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 get to 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 problem isn’t as apparent 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 uncomplicated as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing issues, you’ll want to call the professionals at Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning.
  • Strange sounds – Weird noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a good sign. If you hear any clinking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, turning your TV up so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to cure the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner are cabapble of becoming loose through wear and tear and will have to be corrected by a professional.

Try to be mindful 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 booked your annual maintenance appointment with Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning, now is the perfect time.
