AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Bossier City, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you rely on 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 necessary to call in the experienced technicians from Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning to provide air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most notable signs that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The key thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and confirm 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 currently 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 concern isn’t as apparent 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 concern. 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 Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning. Strange sounds – Weird noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a good 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 cure the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner have been known to come loose through wear and tear and will have to be repaired by a professional. Try to be cognizant of how your air conditioner sounds and functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to catch when things aren’t running smoothly. Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet booked your annual maintenance appointment with Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning, now is the ideal time.
