Signs that AC Repair is Needed

You trust your air conditioner to keep you comfortable on the warm Columbia summer days. When you are ready for an AC repair, your air conditioner will give you a number of signs to let you know you need to reach out to Watts Electrical & Air Conditioning to keep your summer days cool.

One of the most clear signs you are in need of an AC repair is a lack of cooled air and/or poor airflow. If your home isn’t staying cool, give us a ring. Unfortunately, when your air conditioner doesn’t maintain your cooling needs, it’s usually a more serious problem. Your AC unit may have condenser issues or it may be running low on Freon. Low airflow could also be a symptom of a ductwork issue. Whatever the difficulty is, you can be sure our pros will be there to guide you to your best choices, whether it’s an AC repair or investment in a new air conditioner.

Leaks from your air conditioner are often a sign that an AC repair is required. If you notice a leak from your AC, call for a repair right away. If you have a refrigerant leak, it could trigger health problems for your family. If it’s a leak due to condensation, the health risk is lower, but you will still want to take care of it before it turns into a bigger problem like mold growth.

It’s a rule of thumb that if any part of your HVAC system starts to make unique sounds, it’s likely a sign of trouble. When it comes to your AC, these categories of troubling sounds include squealing or grinding. Essentially, your air conditioner should run relatively quietly and you shouldn’t be able to hear more than the sound of your fan kick on or shut off. Sounds from your AC could signify the need for a fix as simple as needing lubricant in some of the moving parts to something more serious that could lead to a breakdown. Your best move is to give us a call to help nip the problem in the bud.

If you smell any odor coming from your vents, it could point to some AC-related problems, too. You should always have a technician help you get to the root of any odors related to your HVAC system, as they could range from mold growth to tough electrical issues.

Sometimes it may seem that your air conditioner is having problems, but it’s actually your thermostat than requires attention. If your home temperature isn’t where you’re programming it to be, the experts at Watts Electrical & Air Conditioning will be able to tell if the problem is actually with your thermostat. It could just be a wiring problem or a blocked sensor, or it may be time to replace the thermostat.
