The more you rely on your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be require 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 experienced technicians from Aireforce Heating & Air Inc to arrange air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most noticeable proof 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 immediately being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to achieve the temperature set on your thermostat, that is a sign that it’s time to call and get it checked out. Decreased air flow – This issue isn’t as apparent 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 problem. If you haven’t changed your air filter for some time, 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 problems, you’ll want to call the professionals at Aireforce Heating & Air Inc. Strange sounds – Peculiar noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a good sign. If you hear any banging 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 notice when things aren’t running correctly.
