Couple getting Air Conditioner Repair

Signs that AC Repair is Needed

You depend on your air conditioner to keep you comfortable on the warm Alliance summer days. When it’s time for an AC repair, your air conditioner will give you a number of signs to let you know you need to reach out to Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces to keep your summer days cool.

One of the most blatant signs you are in need of an AC repair is a lack of cooled air and/or poor airflow. If your space isn’t staying cool, give us a ring. Unfortunately, when your air conditioner doesn’t maintain your cooling needs, it’s generally a more serious problem. Your AC unit may have condenser concerns or it may be running low on Freon. Low airflow could also be a sign of a ductwork issue. Whatever the problem is, you can be sure our team will be there to guide you to your best choices, whether it’s an AC repair or investment in a new air conditioner.

Leaks from your air conditioner are almost always a sign that an AC repair is needed. If you observe a leak from your AC, call for a repair immediately. If you have a refrigerant leak, it could cause health problems for your family. If it’s a leak due to condensation, the health risk lessens, but you will still want to take care of it before it turns into a larger problem like mold growth.

It’s a rule of thumb that if any part of your HVAC system starts to make unusual sounds, it’s potentially a sign of trouble. When it comes to your AC, these categories of troubling sounds include squealing or grinding. Essentially, your air conditioner should work relatively quietly and you shouldn’t be able to hear more than the sound of your fan kick on or shut off. Sounds from your AC could indicate the need for a fix as simple as needing lubricant in some of the moving parts to something more serious that could result in a breakdown. Your best bet is to give us a call to help find the solution.

If you notice any odor coming from your vents, it could point to some AC-related problems, too. You should always have an expert help you get to the root of any odors related to your HVAC system, as they could range from mold growth to problematic electrical issues.

Sometimes it may seem that your air conditioner is having problems, but it’s really your thermostat than requires attention. If your home temperature isn’t where you’re programming it to be, the experts at Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces will be able to check if the problem is actually with your thermostat. It may just be a wiring problem or a blocked sensor, or it may be time to get a new thermostat.
