AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Denver, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the chance 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 time to call in the experienced technicians from Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. to administer air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most notable 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 steadily blow air even if it’s not presently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to reach 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 easy to spot 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 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 simple as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.. Strange sounds – Weird noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a positive sign. If you hear any clanking 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 have been known to come loose through wear and tear and will have to be fixed by a professional. Try to be cognizant of how your air conditioner sounds and works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot when things aren’t running correctly. Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems.
