April 27, 2015

The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Laguna Niguel, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to keep comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be require AC repair.

We have three warning signs to look out for and some helpful hints to let you know when it’s crucial to call in the professionals from Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating to arrange air conditioner service.

  • Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most noticeable indications that your air conditioner has the need for repair. The initial 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 steadily blow air even if it’s not immediately being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to get to 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 easy to spot 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 a problem. If you haven’t changed your air filter recently, 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 Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating .
  • Strange sounds – Peculiar noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a positive sign. If you hear any clinking or rattling coming from your air conditioner, turning your TV up so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to fix 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 mindful of how your air conditioner sounds and operates when it’s running well. This will make it easier to notice when things aren’t running properly.

Keeping up with yearly maintenance is another way to identify any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet booked your annual maintenance appointment with Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating , now is the perfect time.
