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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is vital to keeping you comfortable on warmer Bartlesville days. If it 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 exhibit symptoms that it needs care before it breaks down completely. Check for any of the following symptoms and give Farris Heating & Air a call if you suspect your AC is on the fritz.

If you observe a lack of cooled air or decreased airflow, this is a definite sign that something is off. Give the team at Farris Heating & Air 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, we can 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 working AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that create abnormal sounds signify a potential breakdown.

If you notice a leak coming from your AC, call us for an AC repair immediately. A condensation leak carries less of a health risk, but you should get it repaired before there is a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or unusual odors coming from your registers indicate your system needs to be checked out.

If you think you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Farris Heating & Air a call at 918-534-8194 and we’ll be there to help. If your AC is working as it should, but it’s past due for a routine maintenance visit, we urge you to call to set one up. It could save you from costly, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to helping you.
