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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is key to keeping you comfortable during the warmer Houston days. If your system breaks down, it can really compromise your comfort! So, how can you know when you might need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will display symptoms that it needs care before it breaks down completely. Be on the lookout for any of the following symptoms and give Marcos AC & Heating 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 professionals at Marcos AC & Heating a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t stay cool. When your system can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s possibly a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having issues with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, our professionals can provide support.

In general, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s usually 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 working AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that cause abnormal sounds indicate 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 it’s wise to get it repaired before there is a bigger problem, like mold growth.

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

If you feel you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Marcos AC & Heating a call at 713-469-3357 and our team can help you. If your AC is running 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 expensive, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to serving you.
