Signs that AC Repair is Needed

You depend on your air conditioner to keep you comfy on the warm Zelienople summer days. When it’s time for an AC repair, your air conditioner will give you a few signs to let you know you need to call Knoechel Heating Company to keep your summer days cool.

One of the most blatant signs you are in need of an AC repair is the absence of cooled air and/or poor airflow. If your house isn’t staying cool, give us a shout. Unfortunately, when your air conditioner doesn’t sustain your cooling needs, it’s typically a more serious problem. Your AC unit may have condenser issues 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 experts 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 in order. If you observe a leak from your AC, call for a repair asap. 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 decreases, 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 unique sounds, it’s likely a sign of trouble. When it comes to your AC, these kinds of troubling sounds include squealing or grinding. Basically, 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 signify the need for something as simple as needing lubricant in some of the moving parts to something more serious that could lead to a breakdown. Your best bet is to give us a call to help determine the best steps.

If you smell any odor coming from your vents, it could point to some AC-related problems, too. You should always have a professional 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 indeed your thermostat than requires attention. If your home temperature isn’t where you’re programming it to be, the experts at Knoechel Heating Company will be able to tell 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 replace the thermostat.
