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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is crucial to keeping you comfortable during the warmer Montoursville days. If your system breaks down, it can really compromise your comfort! So, how can you determine when you might need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will display symptoms that it needs attention before it breaks down completely. Watch for any of the following symptoms and give Airmen HVAC Service 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 isn’t right. Give the team at Airmen HVAC Service a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t keep cool. When your air conditioner can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s probably a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having issues with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, we can help.

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

If your AC has a leak, schedule an AC repair right away. A condensation leak carries less of a health risk, but it’s wise to get it repaired before there is a bigger problem, like mold growth.

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

If you think you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Airmen HVAC Service a call at 570-322-3131 and our team can help you. 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 expensive, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to serving you.
