The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Fort Lauderdale, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to keep comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be have to depend upon 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 experts from Solar Air Inc. to arrange air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner requires repair. The first thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and ensure 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 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 easy to spot 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 recently, 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 issues, you’ll want to call the professionals at Solar Air Inc. .
- Strange sounds – Bizarre noises originating in your air conditioner isn’t a positive 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 mindful of how your air conditioner sounds and functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot when things aren’t running properly.
Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet booked your annual maintenance appointment with Solar Air Inc. , now is the ideal time.
