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 San Jose days. If the equipment breaks down, it can really impact your comfort! So, how do you recognize when you may need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will show symptoms that it needs care before it breaks down completely. Watch for any of the following symptoms and give American HVAC Inc 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 wrong. Give the professionals at American HVAC Inc a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t stay cool. When your AC can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s likely 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.

Overall, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s usually a problem that requires AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, call us. You shouldn’t hear a lot of noise from a properly functioning AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that generate abnormal sounds imply a potential breakdown.

If you notice a leak coming from your AC, schedule an AC repair right away. A condensation leak carries less of a health risk, but you should get it repaired before there is a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or strange odors coming from your registers are a sign that your system needs service.

If you suspect you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give American HVAC Inc a call at 408-215-1018 and our team can help you. If your AC is working as it should, but it’s past due 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.
