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

Your air conditioner is key to keeping you comfortable during the warmer Orange County days. If it breaks down, it can really influence your comfort! So, how can you know when you may 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 Ocean Air Conditioning a call if you think 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 wrong. Give the experts at Ocean Air Conditioning 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 likely a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having problems with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, our professionals can provide support.

Typically, 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 loud sounds 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 your AC has a leak, 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 are indications that your system needs to be checked out.

If you think you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Ocean Air Conditioning a call at 949-525-9119 and we’ll be there to help. If your AC is working as it should, but it’s behind schedule for a routine maintenance visit, we suggest you call to set one up. It could save you from expensive, larger repairs down the line. You can even schedule an appointment with us online if it’s easiest for you! We look forward to working with you.
