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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is crucial to keeping you comfortable on warmer Elk River days. If your system breaks down, it can really influence your comfort! So, how can you know when you could need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will show symptoms that it needs care before it breaks down completely. Be on the lookout for any of the following symptoms and give Home Comfort Heating & Air a call if you feel your AC is on the fritz.

If you observe a lack of cooled air or decreased airflow, this is a definite sign that something isn’t right. Give the team at Home Comfort Heating & Air a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t remain cool. When your system can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s probably a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having problems with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, we are here to help.

In general, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s likely a problem that warrants AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, contact 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 cause abnormal sounds signify a potential breakdown.

If you notice a leak coming from your AC, call us for an AC repair immediately. 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 unusual odors coming from your registers are a sign that your system needs to be checked out.

If you feel you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Home Comfort Heating & Air a call at 763-276-0617 and we can 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 expensive, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to working with you.
