AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Carson City, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be require AC repair. We have three warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the experts from Anderson Heating & A/C to provide air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most notable proof that your air conditioner requires repair. The first thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and confirm 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 currently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to get to the temperature set on your thermostat, that signals that it’s time to call and get it checked out. Decreased air flow – This issue isn’t as obvious 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 recently, 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 Anderson Heating & A/C. Strange sounds – Weird noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a positive sign. If you hear any clanking 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 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 works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running correctly. Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems.
