April 27, 2015

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Georgetown, 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 a few warning signs to look out for and some tips to let you know when it’s time to call in the experienced technicians from Miller Climate Control LLC to provide air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most notable signs that your air conditioner has the need for 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 steadily 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 a sign 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 an issue. If you haven’t changed your air filter in a while, 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 issues, you’ll want to call the professionals at Miller Climate Control LLC.
  • Strange sounds – Peculiar noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a positive 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 cure the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner have been known to come 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 works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to spot when things aren’t running correctly.
