AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Bountiful, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be in need of AC repair. We have a few warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the experts from Craig's Heating & Cooling to administer air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most prominent proof that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The key 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 steadily blow air even if it’s not presently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to achieve 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 issue 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 a concern. If you haven’t changed your air filter in a while, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as uncomplicated 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 Craig's Heating & Cooling. Strange sounds – Peculiar noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a good sign. If you hear any clinking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, putting on headphones so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to solve the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner have been known to come loose through wear and tear and will have to be fixed by a professional. Try to be mindful of how your air conditioner sounds and functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running smoothly. Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems.
