AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in South Beloit and Belvidere, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to keep comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair. We have three warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the experienced technicians from Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. to administer air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most prominent proof that your air conditioner is in need of 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 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 concern 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 an issue. If you haven’t changed your air filter in a while, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as uncomplicated 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 Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc.. Strange sounds – Bizarre noises originating in 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 fixed by a professional. Try to be aware of how your air conditioner sounds and functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running smoothly. Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems.
