The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Carson City, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.
We have a few warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s time to call in the experts from Anderson Heating & A/C to administer air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner is in need of 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 steadily 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 a sign that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
- Decreased air flow – This problem isn’t as apparent as the previous, but if you feel 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 uncomplicated 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 Anderson Heating & A/C.
- Strange sounds – Peculiar noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any clinking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, cranking the volume on your TV 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 fixed 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 notice when things aren’t running correctly.
