AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Ontario, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you rely on your air conditioner, the greater the chance 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 necessary to call in the experts from Stan's Heating, Inc to administer air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most prominent indications that your air conditioner has the need for 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 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 problem isn’t as apparent 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 for some time, 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 Stan's Heating, Inc . Strange sounds – Peculiar noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a positive sign. If you hear any clinking 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 corrected 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 catch when things aren’t running correctly. Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems.
