AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Paso Robles, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be require AC repair. We have a few 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 Paso Robles Heating and Air to arrange air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most notable indications 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 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 signals that it’s time to call and get it checked out. Decreased air flow – This concern isn’t as obvious 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 recently, 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 Paso Robles Heating and Air. Strange sounds – Bizarre noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any banging 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 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 properly.
