Signs that AC Repair is Needed

July 08, 2019

You depend on your air conditioner to keep you comfy on the warm Circleville summer days. When it’s time for an AC repair, your air conditioner will give you a number of signs to let you know you need to reach out to Stephen Hurst Pack Heating and Cooling, Inc to keep your summer days cool.

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

Leaks from your air conditioner are almost always a sign that an AC repair is in order. If you observe 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 lessens, but you will still want to take care of it before it turns into a larger problem like mold growth.

It’s a rule of thumb that if any part of your HVAC system starts to make unusual sounds, it’s likely a sign of trouble. When it comes to your AC, these categories of troubling sounds include squealing or grinding. Ultimately, 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 result in a breakdown. Your best bet is to give us a call to help nip the problem in the bud.

If you notice any odor coming from your vents, it could point to some AC-related problems, too. You should always have a professional 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 feel like your air conditioner is having problems, but it’s really your thermostat than requires attention. If your home temperature isn’t where you’re programming it to be, the experts at Stephen Hurst Pack Heating and Cooling, Inc will be able to check 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 get a new thermostat.
