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

Your air conditioner is crucial to keeping you comfortable on warmer Opelika days. If it breaks down, it can really compromise your comfort! So, how can you determine when you may need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will exhibit symptoms that it needs to be looked at before it breaks down completely. Check for any of the following symptoms and give Farnell Mechanical, Inc. a call if you suspect your AC is on the fritz.

If you notice a lack of cooled air or decreased airflow, this is a definite sign that something isn’t right. Give the experts at Farnell Mechanical, Inc. 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 probably a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having problems with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, we are here to help.

Overall, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s usually 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, call us for an AC repair immediately. A condensation leak delivers less of a health risk, but it’s wise to get it repaired before there is a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or strange odors coming from your registers indicate your system requires service.

If you think you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Farnell Mechanical, Inc. a call at 334-524-2458 and we can help. If your AC is operating as it should, but it’s past due for a routine maintenance visit, we encourage you to call to set one up. It could save you from expensive, larger repairs down the line. You can even schedule an appointment with us online if it’s easiest for you! We look forward to working with you.
