Your air conditioner can be running, but not reducing the temperature in your home. There might not be anything worse than finding out your air conditioning system is on the fritz in the middle of a heatwave in summer. Thankfully, professionals who perform Ocean County air conditioner repair are here to help keep you cool. It’s no surprise that the phrase “the best defense is a good offense” exists. It is suitable in a variety of scenarios and holds true for our industry as well. The best way to avoid air conditioner breakdowns is to have a professional inspect and maintain your unit on an annual basis prior to using it for the summer. Even with a great maintenance history, a/c units can break so here’s some tips on what to do if you need Ocean County air conditioner repair.
Signs to Watch For
One of the most obvious signs that you need to call for Ocean County air conditioner repair is that your home is not being cooled. If your a/c isn’t cooling your home, you need turn off your system and contact a professional. Other signs that something could be wrong with your system are strange sounds and smells. Every a/c unit makes noise when it is running, but you know what your system sounds like. When there are noises that stand out to you as being abnormal, that is not a good sign. Metallic noises, banging sounds, and audible screeching should all trigger a call to an a/c repair professional.
What To Try Before You Call Us
There are a couple of things that are fairly simple to check to rule-out for being the culprit for why your a/c is not cooling your home.
- Step one is to make sure the settings are correct. For instance, make sure it is set to cool and that the temperature is set properly.
- Step two is similar to the technology adage of “turn it off and turn it back on again.” Set your thermostat to heat and let it run for a few minutes. Then switch your system back to cool. Again, let it run for a couple minutes. Then check and see if you have cold air coming from your registers.
- If neither of these steps helps, the next item to check is the air filter. Even if you know you just installed a new air filter three weeks ago, remove the air filter and maker sure there is nothing blocking air flow withing the system. If the air filter is dirty and clogged, do not run the system until you replace it with a new filter. Once that is done, try the a/c again.
- Lastly, go outside and take a look at your condenser. Make sure the fins are not blocked by debris or are not damaged in any way. If there is anything wrong with the fins, airflow is diminished and the unit will fail.
If you’ve checked all of above and you still don’t have cool air, we can fix that. When you need emergency Ocean County air conditioner repair, TRHAC is qualified and ready to help.
