The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair. We have some warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the experienced technicians from Clean Air HVAC to arrange air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner has the need for repair. The first 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 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 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 a concern. 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 troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at Clean Air HVAC. Strange sounds – Peculiar noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome 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 fix the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner are cabapble of becoming 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 functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running smoothly.
