The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Chadron, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be in need of AC repair.
We have some warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the professionals from MPC Heating & Cooling to provide air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most prominent proof that your air conditioner has the need for 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 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 is an indication that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
- Decreased air flow – This issue isn’t as obvious 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 in a while, 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 issues, you’ll want to call the professionals at MPC Heating & Cooling.
- Strange sounds – Bizarre noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any clanking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, putting on headphones so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to fix the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner can become 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 works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running properly.
Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet made your your annual maintenance appointment with MPC Heating & Cooling, now is the perfect time.
