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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is vital to keeping you comfortable on warmer Ballwin and St. Charles days. If your system breaks down, it can really compromise your comfort! So, how can you determine when you may 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 Air Alliance Team a call if you think 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 Air Alliance Team 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 likely a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having problems with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, we can help.

In general, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s likely a problem that requires AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, call us. You shouldn’t hear loud sounds from a properly functioning AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that generate abnormal sounds indicate a potential breakdown.

If you see a leak from your AC, contact us for an AC repair right away. A condensation leak delivers 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 indicate your system needs service.

If you feel you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Air Alliance Team a call at 636-206-4250 and our team can help you. 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 helping you.
