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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is key to keeping you comfortable on warmer Pocatello days. If it breaks down, it can really compromise 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 Vogts Heating & Air a call if you suspect your AC is on the fritz.

If you observe a lack of cooled air or decreased airflow, this is a definite sign that something isn’t right. Give the professionals at Vogts Heating & Air a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t stay cool. When your AC can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s probably a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having issues with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, we can help.

Overall, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s usually a problem that requires AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, call 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 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 it’s wise to get it repaired before you have a bigger problem, like mold growth.

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

If you think you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Vogts Heating & Air a call at 208-621-0129 and our team can help you. If your AC is running as it should, but it’s behind schedule for a routine maintenance visit, we encourage you to call to set one up. It could save you from pricey, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to working with you.
