You depend on your air conditioner to keep you comfortable on the warm Scottsboro summer days. When it’s time for an AC repair, your air conditioner will give you a few signs to let you know you need to reach out to Southern Heating & Cooling Inc. to keep your summer days cool.
One of the most obvious signs you are in need of an AC repair is a lack of cooled air and/or poor airflow. If your house isn’t staying cool, give us a ring. Unfortunately, when your air conditioner doesn’t sustain 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 symptom of a ductwork issue. Whatever the problem is, you can be sure our pros will be there to guide you to your best solutions, whether it’s an AC repair or investment in a new air conditioner.
Leaks from your air conditioner are often a sign that an AC repair is needed. If you see a leak from your AC, call for a repair right away. If you have a refrigerant leak, it could trigger health problems for your family. If it’s a leak due to condensation, the health risk decreases, 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 uncommon sounds, it’s likely a sign of trouble. When it comes to your AC, these kinds of troubling sounds include squealing or grinding. Ultimately, your air conditioner should operate 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 signify the need for a solution 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 a technician 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 seem that 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 pros at Southern Heating & Cooling Inc. 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 upgrade your thermostat.
