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 New Castle days. If the equipment breaks down, it can really influence your comfort! So, how can you know when you could need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will show symptoms that it needs to be looked at before it breaks down completely. Check for any of the following symptoms and give Central Heating & Plumbing a call if you suspect your AC is on the fritz.

If you see a lack of cooled air or decreased airflow, this is a definite sign that something isn’t right. Give the professionals at Central Heating & Plumbing a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t remain cool. When your air conditioner can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s possibly a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having issues with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, we can help.

In general, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s usually a problem that needs AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, contact us. You shouldn’t hear much from a properly working AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that generate abnormal sounds signify a potential breakdown.

If you notice a leak coming from your AC, call us for an AC repair immediately. A condensation leak delivers less of a health risk, but it’s wise to get it repaired before you’re faced with a bigger problem, like mold growth.

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

If you think you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Central Heating & Plumbing a call at 724-401-1843 and we’ll be there to help. If your AC is working as it should, but it’s overdue for a routine maintenance visit, we encourage you to call to set one up. It could save you from pricey, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to working with you.
