AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Middletown, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you rely 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 helpful hints to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the experienced technicians from Schagrin Gas Company to provide air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most notable 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 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 presently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to achieve the temperature set on your thermostat, that signals 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 a concern. If you haven’t changed your air filter recently, 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 troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at Schagrin Gas Company. Strange sounds – Peculiar noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a positive 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 are cabapble of becoming loose through wear and tear and will have to be fixed 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 smoothly. Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems.
