AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Marshalltown, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair. We have three warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the professionals from B & G HVAC to administer air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most noticeable proof that your air conditioner requires repair. The initial thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and ensure 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 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 think 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 issues, you’ll want to call the professionals at B & G HVAC. Strange sounds – Weird noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any clinking 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 have been known to come 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 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.
