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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is key to keeping you comfortable during the warmer Monroe days. If your system breaks down, it can really compromise your comfort! So, how can you know when you might need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will exhibit symptoms that it needs attention before it breaks down completely. Check for any of the following symptoms and give Lanz Furnace and Fireplace 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 isn’t right. Give the professionals at Lanz Furnace and Fireplace 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 possibly a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having problems with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, our professionals can provide support.

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, contact us for an AC repair right away. A condensation leak poses less of a health risk, but you should get it repaired before there is a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or unusual odors coming from your registers are indications that your system needs service.

If you feel you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Lanz Furnace and Fireplace a call at 608-291-3606 and we can help. If your AC is running 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 pricey, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to serving you.
