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 Carpentersville days. If the equipment breaks down, it can really influence your comfort! So, how do you recognize when you might need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will show symptoms that it needs to be looked at before it breaks down completely. Be on the lookout for any of the following symptoms and give Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc a call if you feel 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 Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t keep cool. When your system can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s possibly a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having issues with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, we can help.

Overall, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s likely a problem that needs 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 create abnormal sounds imply a potential breakdown.

If you notice a leak coming from your AC, call us for an AC repair immediately. A condensation leak carries less of a health risk, but you’ll want to get it repaired before there is a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or strange odors coming from your registers indicate your system needs to be checked out.

If you think you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc a call at 224-412-8308 and we’ll be there to 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 costly, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to serving you.
