AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Metro Atlanta, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the more likely 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 professionals from ACS Inc to provide air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most prominent signs that your air conditioner has the need for 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 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 reach the temperature set on your thermostat, that is an indication that it’s time to call and get it checked out. Decreased air flow – This concern isn’t as apparent 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 simple as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing issues, you’ll want to call the professionals at ACS Inc. Strange sounds – Weird noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a good sign. If you hear any banging or rattling coming from your air conditioner, cranking the volume on your TV so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to solve 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 works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot when things aren’t running smoothly. Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual maintenance appointment with ACS Inc, now is the perfect time.
