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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is crucial to keeping you comfortable on warmer Shelby days. If your system breaks down, it can really compromise your comfort! So, how can you determine when you could need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will exhibit symptoms that it needs attention before it breaks down completely. Be on the lookout for any of the following symptoms and give Hopper Heating and Air a call if you think your AC is on the fritz.

If you observe a lack of cooled air or decreased airflow, this is a definite sign that something is wrong. Give the professionals at Hopper Heating and Air a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t stay cool. When your system can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s probably 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.

Typically, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s likely a problem that needs AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, call us. You shouldn’t hear a lot of noise 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 see a leak from your AC, call us for an AC repair immediately. A condensation leak delivers less of a health risk, but you’ll want to get it repaired before you have a bigger problem, like mold growth.

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

If you suspect you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Hopper Heating and Air a call at 704-233-7363 and our team can help you. If your AC is running as it should, but it’s overdue 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.
