AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Ballwin, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to stay 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 Holiday Heating & Air Conditioning to provide air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most notable 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 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 issue 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 problem. 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 Holiday Heating & Air Conditioning. Strange sounds – Peculiar noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any banging or rattling coming from your air conditioner, putting on headphones 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 notice when things aren’t running properly. Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems.
