AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Colorado Springs, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair. We have three warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the professionals from Triton HVAC & Refrigeration to provide air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most prominent proof that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The first thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and establish 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 concern isn’t as obvious 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 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 troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at Triton HVAC & Refrigeration. Strange sounds – Bizarre noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome 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 are cabapble of becoming loose through wear and tear and will have to be repaired 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 properly. Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems.
