AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Odessa, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair. We have a few warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the experts from Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning to administer air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most noticeable indications that your air conditioner requires repair. The initial 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 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 issue isn’t as easy to spot 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 an issue. If you haven’t changed your air filter for some time, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as straightforward 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 Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning. Strange sounds – Weird noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a positive sign. If you hear any clanking 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 are cabapble of becoming 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 spot when things aren’t running smoothly. Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems.
