AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 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 remain comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be in need of AC repair. We have a few warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the professionals from MPC Heating & Cooling to administer 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 initial 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 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 reach 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 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 a problem. If you haven’t changed your air filter in a while, 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 issues, you’ll want to call the professionals at MPC Heating & Cooling. Strange sounds – Weird 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 solve 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 mindful 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 yearly maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems.
