  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most prominent signs that your air conditioner is in need of repair.

If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to get to the temperature set on your thermostat, that is a sign that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
  • Decreased air flow – This concern isn’t as easy to spot as the previous, but if you suspect 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 in a while, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as straightforward as a dirty air filter.
