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 Rocky Mount days. If your system breaks down, it can really compromise your comfort! So, how can you know when you might need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will display symptoms that it needs to be looked at before it breaks down completely. Check for any of the following symptoms and give Davis Heating & Air Conditioning a call if you think your AC is on the fritz.

If you see a lack of cooled air or decreased airflow, this is a definite sign that something is off. Give the team at Davis Heating & Air Conditioning 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 probably 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.

Typically, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s probably a problem that warrants AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, contact us. 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 cause abnormal sounds signify a potential breakdown.

If your AC has a leak, call us for an AC repair immediately. A condensation leak carries less of a health risk, but it’s wise to get it repaired before there is a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or unfamiliar odors coming from your registers are indications that your system needs service.

If you think you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Davis Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 540-369-3790 and we’ll be there to help. If your AC is working as it should, but it’s past due for a routine maintenance visit, we encourage you to call to set one up. It could save you from costly, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to helping you.
