AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Springfield, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair. We have some warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s time to call in the experienced technicians from Bormida Mechanical Services Inc to administer air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely 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 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 achieve the temperature set on your thermostat, that signals that it’s time to call and get it checked out. Decreased air flow – This problem isn’t as apparent 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 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 problems, you’ll want to call the professionals at Bormida Mechanical Services Inc. Strange sounds – Weird noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a positive 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 can become loose through wear and tear and will have to be corrected by a professional. Try to be cognizant of how your air conditioner sounds and operates when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot when things aren’t running smoothly. Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems.
