Signs that AC Repair is Needed

July 08, 2019

You trust your air conditioner to keep you comfy on the warm Paxinos 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 LTS Plumbing & Heating Inc. to keep your summer days cool.

One of the most obvious signs you are in need of an AC repair is a reduction in cooled air and/or poor airflow. If your home isn’t staying cool, give us a shout. Unfortunately, when your air conditioner doesn’t keep up with your cooling needs, it’s typically 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 choices, whether it’s an AC repair or investment in a new air conditioner.

Leaks from your air conditioner are normally a sign that an AC repair is required. If you observe a leak from your AC, call for a repair right away. If you have a refrigerant leak, it could produce health problems for your family. If it’s a leak due to condensation, the health risk decreases, but you will still want to take care of it before it turns into a greater 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 types of troubling sounds include squealing or grinding. Essentially, your air conditioner should operate 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 a solution as simple as needing lubricant in some of the moving parts to something more serious that could result in a breakdown. Your best chances are to give us a call to help determine the best steps.

If you observe any odor coming from your vents, it could point to some AC-related challenges, 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 seem that your air conditioner is having problems, but it’s really your thermostat than wants attention. If your home temperature isn’t where you’re programming it to be, the pros at LTS Plumbing & Heating Inc. will be able to check if the problem is actually with your thermostat. It may just be a wiring problem or a blocked sensor, or it may be time to replace the thermostat.
