Signs that AC Repair is Needed

You trust your air conditioner to keep you cool on the warm Stuart summer days. When the time comes for an AC repair, your air conditioner will give you a number of signs to let you know you need to call Breathe Healthier Air 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 space isn’t staying cool, give us a shout. Unfortunately, when your air conditioner doesn’t sustain your cooling needs, it’s usually a more serious problem. Your AC unit may have condenser issues or it may be running low on Freon. Low airflow could also be a sign of a ductwork issue. Whatever the difficulty 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 required. If you see a leak from your AC, call for a repair asap. 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 is lower, 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 unusual sounds, it’s probably a sign of trouble. When it comes to your AC, these categories of troubling sounds include squealing or grinding. Basically, 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 bet is to give us a call to help determine the best steps.
