AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

Cooling

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in West Palm Beach, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.

We have some warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the experienced technicians from Summit Air Conditioning Inc to administer air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most noticeable proof that your air conditioner is in need of 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 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 is an indication that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
  • Decreased air flow – This concern isn’t as easy to spot 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 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 simple as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing problems, you’ll want to call the professionals at Summit Air Conditioning Inc.
  • Strange sounds – Weird noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a welcome 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 have been known to come loose through wear and tear and will have to be fixed by a professional.

Try to be aware of how your air conditioner sounds and operates 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 diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet made your your annual maintenance appointment with Summit Air Conditioning Inc, now is an excellent time.
