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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is crucial to keeping you comfortable on warmer Saint Petersburg days. If the equipment breaks down, it can really influence your comfort! So, how can you know when you could need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will show symptoms that it needs attention before it breaks down completely. Watch for any of the following symptoms and give Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc 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 Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t keep cool. When your system can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s likely a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having issues with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, we can help.

In general, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s probably a problem that requires AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, give us a call. You shouldn’t hear much from a properly working 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, contact us for an AC repair right away. A condensation leak poses less of a health risk, but it’s wise to get it repaired before you have a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or unfamiliar odors coming from your registers are indications 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 Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc a call at 727-369-6195 and we’ll be there to help. If your AC is working as it should, but it’s past due for a routine maintenance visit, we encourage you to call to set one up. It could save you from expensive, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to serving you.
