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 McMurray days. If it breaks down, it can really compromise your comfort! So, how can you know when you could need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will display symptoms that it needs to be looked at before it breaks down completely. Check for any of the following symptoms and give Kowalski Heating, Cooling & Plumbing a call if you think 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 Kowalski Heating, Cooling & Plumbing a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t keep 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.

Overall, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s likely a problem that requires AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, call us. 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 imply a potential breakdown.

If your AC has a leak, call us for an AC repair immediately. A condensation leak carries less of a health risk, but it’s wise to get it repaired before you have a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or unfamiliar odors coming from your registers are indications that your system needs to be checked out.

If you feel you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Kowalski Heating, Cooling & Plumbing a call at 724-370-0141 and we can help. If your AC is operating 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 helping you.
