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 Lincoln days. If it breaks down, it can really compromise your comfort! So, how do you recognize when you could need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will exhibit symptoms that it needs attention before it breaks down completely. Be on the lookout for any of the following symptoms and give AW Heating & Air Conditioning a call if you suspect 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 experts at AW 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 probably a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having challenges 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 warrants AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, give us a call. You shouldn’t hear a lot of noise from a properly operating AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that cause abnormal sounds indicate a potential breakdown.

If you notice a leak coming from your AC, schedule an AC repair right away. A condensation leak carries less of a health risk, but you’ll want to get it repaired before you’re faced with a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or strange odors coming from your registers are a sign that your system needs service.

If you think you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give AW Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 402-318-5351 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 costly, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to working with you.
