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 Ellsworth days. If it breaks down, it can really influence your comfort! So, how can you determine when you may need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will show symptoms that it needs attention before it breaks down completely. Be on the lookout for any of the following symptoms and give Walter's-Eaton's Electric, Plumbing, Heating & AC a call if you think your AC is on the fritz.

If you notice a lack of cooled air or decreased airflow, this is a definite sign that something isn’t right. Give the professionals at Walter's-Eaton's Electric, Plumbing, Heating & AC 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 challenges with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, we can help.

In general, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s likely a problem that warrants AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, give us a call. 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 cause abnormal sounds indicate a potential breakdown.

If you notice a leak coming 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 there is a bigger problem, like mold growth.

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

If you suspect you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Walter's-Eaton's Electric, Plumbing, Heating & AC a call at 715-318-6728 and our team can help you. If your AC is operating as it should, but it’s overdue for a routine maintenance visit, we suggest you call to set one up. It could save you from expensive, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to helping you.
