AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Locust, 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 in need of AC repair. We have three warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the experienced technicians from Dynamic Comfort Solutions to provide air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most noticeable indications that your air conditioner requires 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 constantly 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 apparent as the previous, but if you think 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 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 issues, you’ll want to call the professionals at Dynamic Comfort Solutions. Strange sounds – Bizarre noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any clanking 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 have been known to come loose through wear and tear and will have to be repaired by a professional. Try to be cognizant 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 annual maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual maintenance appointment with Dynamic Comfort Solutions, now is the perfect time.
