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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is crucial to keeping you comfortable during the warmer Des Moines days. If your system breaks down, it can really influence 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. Watch for any of the following symptoms and give Heartland Heating & Cooling 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 isn’t right. Give the team at Heartland Heating & Cooling a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t remain cool. When your AC can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s possibly a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having issues with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, we are here to help.

In general, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s usually a problem that warrants AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, contact us. You shouldn’t hear a lot of noise from a properly working AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that generate abnormal sounds signify a potential breakdown.

If you notice a leak coming from your AC, contact us for an AC repair right away. A condensation leak carries less of a health risk, but it’s wise 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 to be checked out.

If you feel you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Heartland Heating & Cooling a call at 515-344-3579 and we can help. If your AC is operating as it should, but it’s overdue for a routine maintenance visit, we encourage you to call to set one up. It could save you from pricey, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to helping you.
