AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Vancouver, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be in need of AC repair. We have three warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the professionals from Air Pro Heating & Cooling LLC to administer air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most noticeable proof that your air conditioner has the need for repair. The key 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 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 get to the temperature set on your thermostat, that signals 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 think 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 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 Air Pro Heating & Cooling LLC. Strange sounds – Bizarre noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a good 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 can become loose through wear and tear and will have to be repaired 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. Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems.
