AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Madera, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the greater the chance 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 necessary to call in the experts from Brian’s Heating & Cooling, Inc. to arrange air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most notable proof 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 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 easy to spot as the previous, but if you feel 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 in a while, 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 Brian’s Heating & Cooling, Inc.. Strange sounds – Weird noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a good sign. If you hear any clinking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, putting on headphones so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to cure 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 mindful 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 identify any minor problems before they become major problems.
