Here in Albuquerque, a properly functioning air conditioner is a necessity in the summer. The comfort of your family and home depend on your AC unit. A breakdown could be a disaster. However, there are signs that you’ll need central air repair even before a breakdown. Addressing these issues early could end up saving you from a system breakdown.
In this blog post, we’ll review 4 signs that you should give us a call for AC repair this summer. As New Mexico’s oldest provider of home services, Wagner Mechanical is a trusted name in central air repair. Call (505) 884-2822 or contact us online to schedule your service.
Reason #1: If you are not getting cold air
Obviously, right? However, this isn’t just about your AC producing cold air at all. This is more about your AC keeping your home at a consistent temperature to your liking.
If your AC is struggling to keep up with the temperature set by your thermostat—including constantly starting and stopping—it might be time to give our team here at Wagner Mechanical a call. This kind of straining to keep up with a colder temperature could eventually lead to a breakdown.
Reason #2: Your home has pockets of extremes
If you notice that some rooms in your home are getting more than enough cold air while other rooms are still incredibly warm, it could be a sign that your air conditioner has a problem with airflow. In turn, airflow problems generally have one of two sources:
- The compressor of your air conditioner is not working properly.
- Faulty ductwork is disrupting the airflow.
Whatever is the reason behind poor airflow, your best bet is to give Wagner Mechanical a call to have us inspect the system, your ducts, and undertake central air repair, if needed.
Reason #3: Your AC unit in not responding to your thermostat adjustments
Unlike in the example above, this is more along the lines of your air conditioner not kicking on when you turn down the temperature. Yet, the air conditioner is working otherwise. In this particular case, the problem isn’t with your air conditioner itself, but with the thermostat.
If you’re encountering this problem, Wagner Mechanical’s professional technicians can inspect your thermostat to determine what the cause of the issue is.
Reason #4: Your AC unit is making strange sounds
Air conditioners run with a sound that becomes a part of outdoor ambient noises. That’s why you don’t often notice it unless you’re listening for it. It’s also why, when something is wrong, you’ll hear the difference right away. Squealing, squeaking, hissing, grinding, popping, and banging are all sounds that should command your attention, as they may indicate the immediate need for central air repair.
These noises may indicate that there’s been a loosening of the condenser belt or an internal part has broken. Give Wagner a call immediately to have us investigate the state of the system.
Call Wagner for any of the reasons above—and all your central air repair needs
Having an air conditioner that runs smoothly throughout the entire summer is bliss. By watching (and listening) for potential issues, you can prevent a system breakdown. When you do run into trouble, contact the professionals at Wagner Mechanical. Our technicians fix all AC makes and models.
