The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Mankato area, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the greater the chance you’ll be require 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 Northern Comfort Inc to administer air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most notable proof 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 continually blow air even if it’s not presently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to reach 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 issue 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 a concern. If you haven’t changed your air filter recently, 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 Northern Comfort Inc.
- Strange sounds – Weird noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a good sign. If you hear any banging or rattling coming from your air conditioner, turning your TV up so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to solve 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 functions when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot when things aren’t running smoothly.
Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet made your your annual maintenance appointment with Northern Comfort Inc, now is the perfect time.
