AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Murrieta, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair. We have three warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the experts from Cool Air Solutions to provide air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most notable proof that your air conditioner requires repair. The key 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 currently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to achieve the temperature set on your thermostat, that signals that it’s time to call and get it checked out. Decreased air flow – This problem isn’t as easy to spot 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 in a while, 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 Cool Air Solutions. Strange sounds – Bizarre noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a good sign. If you hear any banging 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 can become loose through wear and tear and will have to be repaired 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 correctly. Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems.
