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 Mount Hope days. If the equipment breaks down, it can really impact your comfort! So, how can you know when you may need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will display symptoms that it needs care before it breaks down completely. Watch for any of the following symptoms and give Appalachian Heating a call if you suspect 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 Appalachian Heating 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, we are here to help.

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

If you notice a leak coming from your AC, contact us for an AC repair right away. A condensation leak carries less of a health risk, but you should get it repaired before you have a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or unfamiliar odors coming from your registers indicate your system needs to be checked out.

If you think you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Appalachian Heating a call at 304-707-0600 and we can help. If your AC is running as it should, but it’s overdue for a routine maintenance visit, we suggest you call to set one up. It could save you from costly, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to working with you.
