AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Wharton, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair. We have a few warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the experts from Faust Air Conditioning and Heating to administer air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most prominent indications that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The initial 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 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 get to 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 issue 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 problem. 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 issues, you’ll want to call the professionals at Faust Air Conditioning and Heating. Strange sounds – Weird noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any banging or rattling coming from your air conditioner, putting on headphones so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to fix 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 cognizant of how your air conditioner sounds and functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot when things aren’t running properly. Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems.
