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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is key to keeping you comfortable during the warmer Anchorage days. If the equipment breaks down, it can really compromise your comfort! So, how can you determine when you may need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will show symptoms that it needs care before it breaks down completely. Check for any of the following symptoms and give Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services a call if you feel 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 Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services 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 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.

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

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

Bad or unusual 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 Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services a call at 907-202-9798 and our team can help you. If your AC is running as it should, but it’s overdue for a routine maintenance visit, we urge you to call to set one up. It could save you from costly, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to helping you.
