Signs that AC Repair is Needed

You rely on your air conditioner to keep you comfortable on the warm Rocky Mount summer days. When you are ready for an AC repair, your air conditioner will give you a number of signs to let you know you need to call Davis Heating & Air Conditioning 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 home isn’t staying cool, give us a shout. Unfortunately, when your air conditioner doesn’t keep up with your cooling needs, it’s generally 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 indication of a ductwork issue. Whatever the difficulty is, you can be sure our pros will be there to guide you to your best solutions, whether it’s an AC repair or investment in a new air conditioner.

Leaks from your air conditioner are often a sign that an AC repair is needed. If you observe a leak from your AC, call for a repair asap. If you have a refrigerant leak, it could trigger 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 bigger problem like mold growth.

It’s a rule of thumb that if any part of your HVAC system starts to make uncommon sounds, it’s probably 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 solution 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 determine the best steps.

If you notice any odor coming from your vents, it could point to some AC-related issues, 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 feel like your air conditioner is having problems, but it’s indeed your thermostat than needs attention. If your home temperature isn’t where you’re programming it to be, the experts at Davis Heating & Air Conditioning will be able to tell if the problem is actually with your thermostat. It could just be a wiring problem or a blocked sensor, or it may be time to upgrade your thermostat.
