You trust your air conditioner to keep you comfy on the warm Laurel summer days. When the time comes for an AC repair, your air conditioner will give you a few signs to let you know you need to reach out to H&C Heating and Cooling to keep your summer days cool.
One of the most blatant 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 keep up with your cooling needs, it’s usually a more serious problem. Your AC unit may have condenser problems 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 experts 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 see a leak from your AC, call for a repair asap. 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 unusual sounds, it’s likely a sign of trouble. When it comes to your AC, these types of troubling sounds include squealing or grinding. Ultimately, your air conditioner should work 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 mean the need for something as simple as needing lubricant in some of the moving parts to something more serious that could end with a breakdown. Your best move is to give us a call to help determine the best steps.
If you notice any odor coming from your vents, it could point to some AC-related challenges, too. You should always have an expert help you get to the root of any odors related to your HVAC system, as they could range from mold growth to problematic electrical issues.
Sometimes it may feel like your air conditioner is having problems, but it’s actually your thermostat than needs attention. If your home temperature isn’t where you’re programming it to be, the experts at H&C Heating and Cooling will be able to confirm 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.
