AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Beaverton, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to keep comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the possibility 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 necessary to call in the experts from Garoken Energy Co. Inc. to provide air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most prominent signs that your air conditioner requires repair. The initial 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 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 get to 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 obvious 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 problem. If you haven’t changed your air filter for some time, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as straightforward 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 Garoken Energy Co. Inc.. Strange sounds – Peculiar noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a good 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 solve 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 smoothly. Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems.
