The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be require AC repair. We have some warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s time to call in the professionals from Point Heating & Cooling to provide air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most prominent indications that your air conditioner has the need for repair. The first 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 constantly blow air even if it’s not presently 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 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 recently, 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 troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at Point Heating & Cooling. Strange sounds – Bizarre noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a good sign. If you hear any banging 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 corrected by a professional. Try to be mindful of how your air conditioner sounds and functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to catch when things aren’t running correctly.
