Signs that AC Repair is Needed

July 08, 2019

You rely on your air conditioner to keep you comfortable on the warm San Jose summer days. When you are ready for an AC repair, your air conditioner will give you some signs to let you know you need to contact American HVAC Inc to keep your summer days cool.

One of the most clear 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 ring. Unfortunately, when your air conditioner doesn’t sustain your cooling needs, it’s typically a more serious problem. Your AC unit may have condenser problems or it may be running low on Freon. Low airflow could also be a indication of a ductwork issue. Whatever the problem is, you can be sure our experts 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 almost always a sign that an AC repair is in order. If you observe a leak from your AC, call for a repair right away. If you have a refrigerant leak, it could cause health problems for your family. If it’s a leak due to condensation, the health risk is lower, but you will still want to take care of it before it turns into a larger problem like mold growth.

It’s a rule of thumb that if any part of your HVAC system starts to make unusual sounds, it’s probably a sign of trouble. When it comes to your AC, these types of troubling sounds include squealing or grinding. Ultimately, your air conditioner should run 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 mean 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 chances are to give us a call to help nip the problem in the bud.

If you observe any odor coming from your vents, it could point to some AC-related problems, too. You should always have a technician 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 seem that your air conditioner is having problems, but it’s indeed your thermostat than requires attention. If your home temperature isn’t where you’re programming it to be, the pros at American HVAC Inc will be able to confirm if the problem is actually with your thermostat. It might just be a wiring problem or a blocked sensor, or it may be time to get a new thermostat.
