Signs that AC Repair is Needed

July 08, 2019

You rely on your air conditioner to keep you cool on the warm Auburn summer days. When it’s time for an AC repair, your air conditioner will give you some signs to let you know you need to call Forster Heating to keep your summer days cool.

One of the most blatant signs you are in need of an AC repair is a reduction in cooled air and/or poor airflow. If your house isn’t staying cool, give us a ring. Unfortunately, when your air conditioner doesn’t maintain your cooling needs, it’s typically 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 indication of a ductwork issue. Whatever the challenge is, you can be sure our team 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 normally a sign that an AC repair is required. If you see a leak from your AC, call for a repair right away. If you have a refrigerant leak, it could cause 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 unique sounds, it’s probably a sign of trouble. When it comes to your AC, these types of troubling sounds include squealing or grinding. Ultimately, your air conditioner should run 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 fix as simple as needing lubricant in some of the moving parts to something more serious that could lead to a breakdown. Your best chances are to give us a call to help find the solution.

If you smell any odor coming from your vents, it could point to some AC-related issues, 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 difficult electrical issues.

Sometimes it may feel like your air conditioner is having problems, but it’s indeed your thermostat than requires attention. If your home temperature isn’t where you’re programming it to be, the experts at Forster Heating will be able to check 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.
