AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Wisconsin Rapids, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to keep comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair. We have some warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the professionals from Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc to administer air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most notable proof that your air conditioner is in need of 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 presently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to achieve 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 problem isn’t as apparent as the previous, but if you feel 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 recently, 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 issues, you’ll want to call the professionals at Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc. Strange sounds – Bizarre noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a good sign. If you hear any banging 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 have been known to come 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 operates when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running smoothly. Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems.
