Your air conditioner is vital to keeping you comfortable throughout the warmer Greater Richmond days. If your system breaks down, it can really compromise your comfort! So, how can you determine when you might need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will show symptoms that it needs to be looked at before it breaks down completely. Check for any of the following symptoms and give Herman Allen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling 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 is off. Give the experts at Herman Allen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t stay 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, we are here to help.
In general, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s probably a problem that warrants AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, contact us. You shouldn’t hear loud sounds from a properly operating AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that create abnormal sounds imply a potential breakdown.
If you see a leak from your AC, schedule an AC repair right away. A condensation leak poses less of a health risk, but you’ll want to get it repaired before you have a bigger problem, like mold growth.
Bad or unfamiliar odors coming from your registers are a sign that your system requires service.
If you think you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Herman Allen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling a call at 804-302-6657 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 urge you to call to set one up. It could save you from expensive, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to helping you.
