AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Upland, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you rely on 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 helpful hints to let you know when it’s time to call in the professionals from Klaus & Sons Heating & Air Conditioning to administer air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most noticeable proof that your air conditioner has the need for repair. The key thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and establish 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 reach 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 issue isn’t as obvious 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 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 Klaus & Sons Heating & Air Conditioning. 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 solve the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner have been known to come loose through wear and tear and will have to be corrected 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 smoothly. Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems.
