AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Saint Peters, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to keep comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be require AC repair. We have three warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the professionals from C-N-O Comfort Zone to arrange air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most noticeable proof that your air conditioner requires repair. The initial thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and establish 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 a sign that it’s time to call and get it checked out. Decreased air flow – This problem isn’t as obvious as the previous, but if you think the air coming from your vents isn’t flowing as strongly as it had previously, there could be an issue. If you haven’t changed your air filter for some time, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as straightforward as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing problems, you’ll want to call the professionals at C-N-O Comfort Zone. Strange sounds – Bizarre noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a positive sign. If you hear any banging or rattling coming from your air conditioner, putting on headphones so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to cure the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner have been known to come loose through wear and tear and will have to be corrected by a professional. Try to be aware of how your air conditioner sounds and operates when it’s running well. This will make it easier to catch when things aren’t running properly. Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems.
