AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Cape Coral, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you depend 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 tips to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the experts from Comfort Zone Inc to provide air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most prominent proof that your air conditioner requires 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 is an indication 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 think 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 simple 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 Comfort Zone Inc. Strange sounds – Weird noises originating in 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 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 mindful 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 properly. Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems.
