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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is crucial to keeping you comfortable on warmer Jefferson City days. If the equipment breaks down, it can really impact your comfort! So, how do you recognize when you could need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will display symptoms that it needs care before it breaks down completely. Be on the lookout for any of the following symptoms and give Stieferman Heating Company Inc 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 wrong. Give the team at Stieferman Heating Company Inc a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t stay 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, our professionals can provide support.

In general, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s probably a problem that requires 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 imply a potential breakdown.

If your AC has a leak, schedule an AC repair right away. A condensation leak poses less of a health risk, but you should get it repaired before there is 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 Stieferman Heating Company Inc a call at 573-203-3908 and our team can help you. If your AC is running 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 pricey, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to helping you.
