AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Rocky Mount, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the more likely 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 necessary to call in the experienced technicians from Davis Heating & Air Conditioning to provide air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most noticeable proof that your air conditioner requires repair. The first 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 continually blow air even if it’s not currently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to reach the temperature set on your thermostat, that signals 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 suspect 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 in a while, 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 Davis Heating & Air Conditioning. Strange sounds – Peculiar noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a positive sign. If you hear any clinking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, turning your TV up so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to cure the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner can become 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 functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to catch when things aren’t running properly. Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems.
