April 27, 2015

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Ronkonkoma, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to keep comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be require AC repair.

We have a few warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the experts from Cool Power LLC to arrange air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most noticeable indications that your air conditioner requires 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 currently 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 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 a concern. If you haven’t changed your air filter for some time, 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 problems, you’ll want to call the professionals at Cool Power LLC .
  • Strange sounds – Peculiar noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome 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 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 functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to catch when things aren’t running properly.

Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual maintenance appointment with Cool Power LLC , now is the perfect time.
