AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Raceland, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be require AC repair. We have three warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s time to call in the experienced technicians from Guidry's Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Service to arrange air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most notable indications that your air conditioner requires repair. The key 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 continually 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 concern isn’t as apparent 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 an issue. If you haven’t changed your air filter for some time, 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 problems, you’ll want to call the professionals at Guidry's Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Service. Strange sounds – Peculiar noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a positive sign. If you hear any clanking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, cranking the volume on your TV 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 corrected 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 catch when things aren’t running smoothly. Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems.
