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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is key to keeping you comfortable throughout the warmer Marshalltown days. If it breaks down, it can really impact your comfort! So, how can you determine when you may 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 B & G HVAC 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 experts at B & G HVAC a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t remain cool. When your AC 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, our professionals can provide support.

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

If your AC has a leak, schedule an AC repair right away. 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 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 B & G HVAC a call at 641-323-1210 and we can help. If your AC is operating 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.
