AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed04/27/2015 The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Corpus Christi, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be in need of AC repair. We have some warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s time to call in the professionals from McNatt Inc to provide air conditioner service. Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most notable proof 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 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 signals 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 suspect 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 simple 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 McNatt Inc. Strange sounds – Weird 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 cure the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner can become loose through wear and tear and will have to be corrected by a professional. Try to be mindful of how your air conditioner sounds and operates when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot when things aren’t running properly. Keeping up with regular maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems.
