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 Cottonwood days. If it breaks down, it can really impact your comfort! So, how can you know when you might need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will exhibit symptoms that it needs attention before it breaks down completely. Check for any of the following symptoms and give Connolly Electric & Mechanical 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 is wrong. Give the professionals at Connolly Electric & Mechanical a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t stay cool. When your air conditioner can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s likely 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 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 functioning 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, call us for an AC repair immediately. 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 unfamiliar 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 Connolly Electric & Mechanical a call at 928-244-8840 and we can help. If your AC is working as it should, but it’s overdue 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 serving you.
