AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Humble, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you utilize 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 helpful hints to let you know when it’s time to call in the professionals from Arrings A/C & Heating to administer air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner requires repair. The first 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 currently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to reach 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 concern. If you haven’t changed your air filter in a while, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as straightforward as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing problems, you’ll want to call the professionals at Arrings A/C & Heating. 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 solve 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 works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running properly. Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems.
