Signs that AC Repair is Needed

July 08, 2019

You rely on your air conditioner to keep you comfortable on the warm Middletown summer days. When the time comes for an AC repair, your air conditioner will give you a few signs to let you know you need to reach out to SchagrinGAS Company to keep your summer days cool.

One of the most clear signs you are in need of an AC repair is the absence of cooled air and/or poor airflow. If your space isn’t staying cool, give us a shout. Unfortunately, when your air conditioner doesn’t sustain your cooling needs, it’s generally a more serious problem. Your AC unit may have condenser problems or it may be running low on Freon. Low airflow could also be a symptom of a ductwork issue. Whatever the challenge is, you can be sure our team will be there to guide you to your best choices, whether it’s an AC repair or investment in a new air conditioner.

Leaks from your air conditioner are often a sign that an AC repair is needed. If you notice a leak from your AC, call for a repair asap. If you have a refrigerant leak, it could cause health problems for your family. If it’s a leak due to condensation, the health risk decreases, but you will still want to take care of it before it turns into a larger problem like mold growth.

It’s a rule of thumb that if any part of your HVAC system starts to make uncommon sounds, it’s potentially a sign of trouble. When it comes to your AC, these kinds of troubling sounds include squealing or grinding. Basically, your air conditioner should work relatively quietly and you shouldn’t be able to hear more than the sound of your fan kick on or shut off. Sounds from your AC could signify the need for a solution as simple as needing lubricant in some of the moving parts to something more serious that could lead to a breakdown. Your best bet is to give us a call to help find the solution.

If you observe any odor coming from your vents, it could point to some AC-related challenges, too. You should always have a professional help you get to the root of any odors related to your HVAC system, as they could range from mold growth to tough electrical issues.

Sometimes it may appear your air conditioner is having problems, but it’s really your thermostat than wants attention. If your home temperature isn’t where you’re programming it to be, the experts at SchagrinGAS Company will be able to confirm if the problem is actually with your thermostat. It might just be a wiring problem or a blocked sensor, or it may be time to upgrade your thermostat.
