AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Augusta, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair. We have some warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the professionals from McCune Heating & Cooling to arrange air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most notable proof that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The first 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 constantly blow air even if it’s not presently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to reach 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 obvious 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 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 McCune Heating & Cooling. Strange sounds – Bizarre noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any clinking 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 have been known to come loose through wear and tear and will have to be repaired by a professional. Try to be mindful 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 smoothly. Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems.
