AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Franklin Lakes, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be require 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 Total Comfort to administer air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most notable proof that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The key 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 continually 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 an indication 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 problem. If you haven’t changed your air filter recently, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as uncomplicated 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 Total Comfort. Strange sounds – Weird noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any banging or rattling coming from your air conditioner, cranking the volume on your TV so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to solve the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner are cabapble of becoming loose through wear and tear and will have to be corrected by a professional. Try to be aware 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.
