AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Hamilton, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to keep 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 Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC to administer air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most prominent 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 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 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 an issue. If you haven’t changed your air filter recently, 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 Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC. Strange sounds – Bizarre noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a good 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 fix the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner can become loose through wear and tear and will have to be corrected by a professional. Try to be cognizant of how your air conditioner sounds and works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to catch when things aren’t running properly. Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems.
