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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is vital to keeping you comfortable during the warmer Columbia days. If it breaks down, it can really influence your comfort! So, how do you recognize when you might need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will show symptoms that it needs attention before it breaks down completely. Check for any of the following symptoms and give Watts Electric & A/C Inc a call if you suspect your AC is on the fritz.

If you observe a lack of cooled air or decreased airflow, this is a definite sign that something isn’t right. Give the experts at Watts Electric & A/C Inc a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t keep cool. When your air conditioner can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s possibly a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having challenges with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, we can help.

Overall, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s probably a problem that needs 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 cause abnormal sounds signify a potential breakdown.

If you see a leak from your AC, contact us for an AC repair right away. A condensation leak carries less of a health risk, but you’ll want to get it repaired before there is a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or unusual odors coming from your registers indicate your system needs to be checked out.

If you think you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Watts Electric & A/C Inc a call at 601-736-7362 and we can help. If your AC is running as it should, but it’s past due for a routine maintenance visit, we suggest you call to set one up. It could save you from costly, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to helping you.
