The more you depend on your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be require AC repair. We have some warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s time to call in the professionals from Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC to administer 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 confirm that it’s set to “auto” rather than “on”. If it’s set to “on” your AC will constantly 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 concern isn’t as obvious 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 an issue. 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 Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC. Strange sounds – Weird noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a good 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 fix the problem.

Try to be mindful of how your air conditioner sounds and works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running smoothly.
