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 Thedford days. If it breaks down, it can really impact your comfort! So, how do you recognize when you may need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will exhibit symptoms that it needs care before it breaks down completely. Be on the lookout for any of the following symptoms and give Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning 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 isn’t right. Give the team at Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t keep cool. When your system 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 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 generate abnormal sounds imply a potential breakdown.

If you see a leak from your AC, call us for an AC repair immediately. A condensation leak carries less of a health risk, but you’ll want to get it repaired before there is a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or strange odors coming from your registers indicate your system requires service.

If you suspect you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 519-296-4437 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 encourage you to call to set one up. It could save you from costly, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to working with you.
