AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Liberty and the Kansas City Metro Area, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the greater the possibility 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 time to call in the professionals from Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling to provide air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most notable indications that your air conditioner is in need of 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 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 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 suspect 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 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 Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling. Strange sounds – Bizarre noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any clinking 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 spot when things aren’t running correctly. Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems.
