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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is vital to keeping you comfortable throughout the warmer Suffolk/Nassau County days. If your system breaks down, it can really influence your comfort! So, how do you recognize when you may need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will show symptoms that it needs care before it breaks down completely. Be on the lookout for any of the following symptoms and give Airmax Long Island Inc a call if you suspect your AC is on the fritz.

If you notice a lack of cooled air or decreased airflow, this is a definite sign that something is off. Give the experts at Airmax Long Island Inc a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t keep cool. When your air conditioner can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s likely a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having problems with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, we can help.

Overall, 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 a lot of noise from a properly functioning 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, contact us for an AC repair right away. A condensation leak carries 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 strange odors coming from your registers are indications that your system requires service.

If you think you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Airmax Long Island Inc a call at 631-737-5566 and we can help. If your AC is working as it should, but it’s past due for a routine maintenance visit, we suggest you call to set one up. It could save you from costly, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to working with you.
