The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Cape Coral, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be require 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 professionals from Comfort Zone Inc to administer air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most noticeable indications that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The key thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and ensure 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 an indication that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
- Decreased air flow – This concern isn’t as obvious as the previous, but if you suspect 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 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 Comfort Zone 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, turning your TV up so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to cure the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner are cabapble of becoming 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 functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot when things aren’t running properly.
Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet booked your annual maintenance appointment with Comfort Zone Inc, now is the perfect time.
