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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is crucial to keeping you comfortable during the warmer Laguna Niguel days. If the equipment 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 to be looked at before it breaks down completely. Be on the lookout for any of the following symptoms and give Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating a call if you feel your AC is on the fritz.

If you notice a lack of cooled air or decreased airflow, this is a definite sign that something isn’t right. Give the experts at Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t keep 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 challenges 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 probably a problem that needs AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, call us. You shouldn’t hear much from a properly functioning AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that cause abnormal sounds signify a potential breakdown.

If you notice a leak coming from your AC, contact us for an AC repair right away. A condensation leak poses 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 requires service.

If you think you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating a call at 949-525-9119 and we’ll be there to help. If your AC is operating 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 working with you.
