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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is vital to keeping you comfortable on warmer Mechanicsville days. If it breaks down, it can really compromise your comfort! So, how can you determine when you could need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will exhibit symptoms that it needs to be looked at before it breaks down completely. Watch for any of the following symptoms and give M & S Heating & Air LLC a call if you think your AC is on the fritz.

If you observe a lack of cooled air or decreased airflow, this is a definite sign that something is off. Give the professionals at M & S Heating & Air LLC a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t remain cool. When your system 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, our professionals can provide support.

Typically, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s usually a problem that warrants AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, give us a call. 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 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’ll want to get it repaired before there is 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 M & S Heating & Air LLC a call at 301-363-4699 and our team can help you. If your AC is operating as it should, but it’s behind schedule for a routine maintenance visit, we suggest you call to set one up. It could save you from expensive, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to helping you.
