The more you rely on your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be require AC repair. We have three warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the professionals from Air Max HVAC Inc to provide air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most prominent indications that your air conditioner requires repair. The key 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 achieve 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 problem 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 Air Max HVAC Inc. Strange sounds – Peculiar noises coming 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 fix 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 notice when things aren’t running properly.
