How to Tell if Your AC is in Need of Emergency Repair

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is crucial to keeping you comfortable throughout the warmer Zelienople days. If your system breaks down, it can really influence your comfort! So, how do you recognize when you could need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will show symptoms that it needs attention before it breaks down completely. Check for any of the following symptoms and give Knoechel Heating Company a call if you suspect 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 wrong. Give the team at Knoechel Heating Company a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t remain cool. When your AC can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s possibly a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having problems 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, give us a call. You shouldn’t hear a lot of noise from a properly functioning AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that create abnormal sounds imply a potential breakdown.

If you see a leak from your AC, contact us for an AC repair right away. A condensation leak delivers less of a health risk, but you should get it repaired before you have a bigger problem, like mold growth.

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

If you suspect you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Knoechel Heating Company a call at 724-425-5852 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 urge you to call to set one up. It could save you from pricey, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to serving you.
