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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is crucial to keeping you comfortable throughout the warmer the Bay Area days. If the equipment breaks down, it can really impact 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. Check for any of the following symptoms and give Contra Costa Heating & AC a call if you suspect 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 experts at Contra Costa Heating & AC a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t keep cool. When your AC can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s probably a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having issues with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, our professionals can provide support.

Typically, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s probably a problem that warrants 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 imply a potential breakdown.

If your AC has a leak, call us for an AC repair immediately. A condensation leak delivers less of a health risk, but it’s wise to get it repaired before you’re faced with a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or unfamiliar odors coming from your registers are indications that your system needs service.

If you think you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Contra Costa Heating & AC a call at 510-343-9841 and we’ll be there to help. If your AC is running as it should, but it’s overdue for a routine maintenance visit, we encourage you to call to set one up. It could save you from pricey, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to helping you.
