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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is key to keeping you comfortable on warmer Derby days. If your system breaks down, it can really impact your comfort! So, how can you know when you may need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will show symptoms that it needs care before it breaks down completely. Be on the lookout for any of the following symptoms and give Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning 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 is off. Give the team at Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t stay cool. When your air conditioner can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s probably a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having challenges with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, our professionals can provide support.

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 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 poses 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 unfamiliar odors coming from your registers indicate your system requires service.

If you think you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning a call at 203-772-8319 and we can help. If your AC is working as it should, but it’s behind schedule 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 helping you.
