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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is crucial to keeping you comfortable throughout the warmer Perry days. If your system breaks down, it can really compromise your comfort! So, how do you recognize when you might need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will display symptoms that it needs to be looked at before it breaks down completely. Watch for any of the following symptoms and give Gillman Heating and Air a call if you suspect your AC is on the fritz.

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

Overall, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s usually a problem that needs AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, call us. You shouldn’t hear loud sounds from a properly functioning AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that create 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 you’ll want to get it repaired before you have a bigger problem, like mold growth.

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

If you feel you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Gillman Heating and Air a call at 478-202-3076 and we can help. If your AC is running as it should, but it’s past due for a routine maintenance visit, we suggest you call to set one up. It could save you from pricey, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to working with you.
