April 27, 2015

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Holdrege, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to remain comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be in need of AC repair.

We have a few warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the experts from Durable Service to provide air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most notable signs that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The initial 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 constantly blow air even if it’s not presently being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to achieve 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 think 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 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 Durable Service .
  • Strange sounds – Weird noises emerging from your air conditioner isn’t a positive sign. If you hear any clinking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, cranking the volume on your TV so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to solve 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 cognizant 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 correctly.

Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to determine any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet made your your annual maintenance appointment with Durable Service , now is an excellent time.
