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 Alliance 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 show symptoms that it needs care before it breaks down completely. Be on the lookout for any of the following symptoms and give Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces 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 is off. Give the professionals at Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces 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 problems 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 usually a problem that warrants AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, give us a call. You shouldn’t hear a lot of noise from a properly operating AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that create abnormal sounds indicate a potential breakdown.

If you see a leak from your AC, contact us for 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 unusual odors coming from your registers are a sign that your system needs service.

If you suspect you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces a call at 308-646-3827 and our team can help you. 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 expensive, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to helping you.
