The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Hasbrouck Heights, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the chance 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 time to call in the professionals from ACE Solutions to administer 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 steadily 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 is a sign that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
- Decreased air flow – This concern isn’t as easy to spot 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 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 issues, you’ll want to call the professionals at ACE Solutions.
- Strange sounds – Peculiar noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a positive 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 fix the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner can become loose through wear and tear and will have to be fixed by a professional.
Try to be cognizant of how your air conditioner sounds and works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to catch when things aren’t running properly.
Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet booked your annual maintenance appointment with ACE Solutions, now is the ideal time.
