Cooling

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Hendersonville, which means you’re going to be depending on your air conditioner to stay comfortable. The more you utilize 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 helpful hints to let you know when it’s necessary to call in the professionals from Superior Comfort Systems to provide air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is possibly one of the most noticeable proof 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 constantly blow air even if it’s not currently 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 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 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 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 Superior Comfort Systems.
  • Strange sounds – Weird noises originating in 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 cure the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner are cabapble of becoming loose through wear and tear and will have to be fixed 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 smoothly.
