AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Hauppauge, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to keep comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair. We have three warning signs to look out for and some tips 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 proof that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The initial 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 steadily blow air even if it’s not immediately 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 apparent as the previous, but if you think 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 Cool Power LLC . Strange sounds – Weird noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a good sign. If you hear any clanking 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 have been known to come 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 operates when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running correctly. Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems.
