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 Troy days. If your system breaks down, it can really influence your comfort! So, how can you determine when you may need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will exhibit symptoms that it needs attention before it breaks down completely. Be on the lookout for any of the following symptoms and give Edington Heating & Cooling Inc a call if you think your AC is on the fritz.

If you notice a lack of cooled air or decreased airflow, this is a definite sign that something isn’t right. Give the professionals at Edington Heating & Cooling Inc a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t remain cool. When your AC can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s likely 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.

In general, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s usually a problem that needs AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, contact us. You shouldn’t hear much from a properly operating AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that create abnormal sounds signify a potential breakdown.

If you notice a leak coming from your AC, schedule an AC repair right away. A condensation leak delivers less of a health risk, but you should get it repaired before there is a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or unfamiliar odors coming from your registers are a sign that your system needs service.

If you suspect you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Edington Heating & Cooling Inc a call at 937-558-9478 and we’ll be there to help. If your AC is operating as it should, but it’s past due for a routine maintenance visit, we urge you to call to set one up. It could save you from costly, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to serving you.
