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

Your air conditioner is vital to keeping you comfortable throughout the warmer Buellton days. If the equipment breaks down, it can really compromise your comfort! So, how can you determine 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 Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning 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 is off. Give the team at Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t remain cool. When your AC 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, we can help.

Overall, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s probably a problem that warrants AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, give us a call. You shouldn’t hear a lot of noise from a properly operating 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, schedule an AC repair right away. A condensation leak poses less of a health risk, but you’ll want to get it repaired before you’re faced with a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or unfamiliar 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 Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 805-242-9638 and we can help. If your AC is working as it should, but it’s overdue for a routine maintenance visit, we encourage you to call to set one up. It could save you from costly, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to helping you.
