The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Grove City, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be in need of AC repair.
We have three warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the experts from Air Quality Solutions to provide air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most prominent proof that your air conditioner has the need for 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 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 an indication 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 problem. If you haven’t changed your air filter for some time, 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 Air Quality Solutions.
- Strange sounds – Peculiar noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any clanking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, cranking the volume on your TV 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 functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running properly.
Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet booked your annual maintenance appointment with Air Quality Solutions, now is the perfect time.
