The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Paso Robles, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to keep comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.
We have a few warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the professionals from Paso Robles Heating and Air to administer air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner requires repair. The first thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and ensure 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 presently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to get to the temperature set on your thermostat, that is a sign that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
- Decreased air flow – This problem isn’t as easy to spot as the previous, but if you feel 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 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 troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at Paso Robles Heating and Air.
- Strange sounds – Peculiar noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any clinking 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 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 works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to catch when things aren’t running correctly.
