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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is key to keeping you comfortable throughout the warmer Plainfield days. If the equipment breaks down, it can really compromise your comfort! So, how do you recognize when you may need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will show symptoms that it needs care before it breaks down completely. Watch for any of the following symptoms and give PWA Heating & Cooling Inc a call if you feel 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 PWA Heating & Cooling Inc 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 probably a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having issues 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 probably 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 working AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that generate abnormal sounds indicate a potential breakdown.

If your AC has a leak, contact us for an AC repair right away. A condensation leak delivers 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 unfamiliar odors coming from your registers indicate your system needs to be checked out.

If you feel you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give PWA Heating & Cooling Inc a call at 815-410-1231 and our team can help you. If your AC is running as it should, but it’s behind schedule for a routine maintenance visit, we suggest you call to set one up. It could save you from expensive, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to working with you.
