AC Repair Needed

AC Repair: Signs that Air Conditioner Repair is Needed

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Cedar Rapids, which means you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you depend on your air conditioner, the more likely you’ll be have to depend upon AC repair.

We have three warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s time to call in the professionals from Ilten's Incorporated to provide air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is likely one of the most notable proof that your air conditioner is in need of repair. The key 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 problem isn’t as easy to spot 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 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 issues, you’ll want to call the professionals at Ilten's Incorporated.
  • Strange sounds – Bizarre noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a positive sign. If you hear any clanking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, putting on headphones so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to fix the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner are cabapble of becoming 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 works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to catch when things aren’t running properly.

Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet booked your annual maintenance appointment with Ilten's Incorporated, now is the ideal time.
