How to Tell if Your AC is in Need of Emergency Repair

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is vital to keeping you comfortable during the warmer Alice days. If the equipment breaks down, it can really influence your comfort! So, how do you recognize when you may need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will display symptoms that it needs care before it breaks down completely. Be on the lookout for any of the following symptoms and give Rescue Heating & Air a call if you suspect your AC is on the fritz.

If you see a lack of cooled air or decreased airflow, this is a definite sign that something is wrong. Give the professionals at Rescue Heating & Air a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t stay cool. When your AC can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s probably a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having challenges with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, our professionals can provide support.

Typically, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s probably a problem that requires AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, give us a call. You shouldn’t hear a lot of noise from a properly working AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that cause abnormal sounds signify a potential breakdown.

If you see a leak from your AC, schedule an AC repair right away. A condensation leak poses less of a health risk, but you should get it repaired before you’re faced with a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or unusual odors coming from your registers are a sign that your system requires service.

If you suspect you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Rescue Heating & Air a call at 361-265-4371 and we’ll be there to help. If your AC is operating as it should, but it’s behind schedule for a routine maintenance visit, we encourage you to call to set one up. It could save you from costly, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to serving you.
