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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is crucial to keeping you comfortable during the warmer Excelsior Springs days. If the equipment breaks down, it can really influence your comfort! So, how can you know when you may need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will show symptoms that it needs to be looked at before it breaks down completely. Watch for any of the following symptoms and give Colvin's Heating and Cooling 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 team at Colvin's Heating and Cooling a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t stay cool. When your AC can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s likely a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having problems 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 needs AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, contact us. You shouldn’t hear loud sounds from a properly functioning AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that generate abnormal sounds indicate a potential breakdown.

If you see a leak from your AC, schedule an AC repair right away. A condensation leak poses less of a health risk, but you’ll want to get it repaired before you have a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or unfamiliar 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 Colvin's Heating and Cooling a call at 816-379-3918 and our team can help you. If your AC is operating as it should, but it’s past due 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.
