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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is vital to keeping you comfortable during the warmer Moline days. If it breaks down, it can really compromise 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 Freed Heating & Air Conditioning 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 experts at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t keep cool. When your air conditioner can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s likely a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having issues with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, we can help.

Overall, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s usually a problem that needs 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 create abnormal sounds imply a potential breakdown.

If your AC has a leak, schedule an AC repair right away. A condensation leak carries less of a health risk, but you should get it repaired before you’re faced with a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or strange odors coming from your registers indicate your system needs service.

If you think you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Freed Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 309-323-9584 and we can help. If your AC is running as it should, but it’s past due for a routine maintenance visit, we suggest you call to set one up. It could save you from costly, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to working with you.
