AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Tuscaloosa, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair. We have some warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the experts from KDM Service Corporation to administer air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most prominent proof that your air conditioner requires repair. The initial 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 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 is an indication that it’s time to call and get it checked out. Decreased air flow – This concern isn’t as easy to spot 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 for some time, 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 problems, you’ll want to call the professionals at KDM Service Corporation. Strange sounds – Weird noises coming from 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 cure the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner can become loose through wear and tear and will have to be repaired by a professional. Try to be mindful 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 correctly. Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems.
