AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Lawrence, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to keep comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be in need of AC repair. We have some warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s time to call in the experienced technicians from Scott Temperature to arrange air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The first 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 constantly blow air even if it’s not presently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to get to 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 problem 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 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 troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at Scott Temperature. Strange sounds – Bizarre noises coming from 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 solve the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner are cabapble of becoming 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 works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot when things aren’t running correctly.
