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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is key to keeping you comfortable on warmer Kearney days. If the equipment breaks down, it can really influence your comfort! So, how do you recognize when you could 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 Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning a call if you feel your AC is on the fritz.

If you notice a lack of cooled air or decreased airflow, this is a definite sign that something is off. Give the professionals at Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t remain 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 challenges with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, we can help.

Typically, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s likely a problem that requires AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, contact us. You shouldn’t hear loud sounds from a properly working 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, call us for an AC repair immediately. A condensation leak carries 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 indicate your system needs to be checked out.

If you feel you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 308-624-3485 and our team can help you. If your AC is operating as it should, but it’s overdue 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 helping you.
