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 Brandon days. If the equipment breaks down, it can really influence your comfort! So, how do you recognize when you may need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will display symptoms that it needs attention before it breaks down completely. Be on the lookout for any of the following symptoms and give Brandon Heating and Plumbing 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 isn’t right. Give the professionals at Brandon Heating and Plumbing a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t keep 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 issues 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 needs AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, give us a call. You shouldn’t hear much from a properly functioning AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that create abnormal sounds indicate a potential breakdown.

If your AC has a leak, schedule an AC repair right away. A condensation leak poses less of a health risk, but it’s wise to get it repaired before you have a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or strange odors coming from your registers are a sign that your system requires service.

If you feel you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Brandon Heating and Plumbing a call at 204-728-0180 and we can help. If your AC is running as it should, but it’s behind schedule 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 working with you.
