AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Asheville, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the greater the chance 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 time to call in the experienced technicians from 1st Choice Service Group Inc to arrange air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most prominent 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 steadily 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 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 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 1st Choice Service Group Inc. Strange sounds – Weird noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a good sign. If you hear any banging 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 have been known to come loose through wear and tear and will have to be corrected by a professional. Try to be aware 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 yearly maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems.
