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 Drexel Hill days. If it breaks down, it can really impact your comfort! So, how can you determine when you could need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will exhibit symptoms that it needs attention before it breaks down completely. Be on the lookout for any of the following symptoms and give O'Brien 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 experts at O'Brien Heating & 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 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 usually a problem that needs AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, call us. You shouldn’t hear a lot of noise from a properly working AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that create abnormal sounds imply a potential breakdown.

If you notice a leak coming from your AC, schedule an AC repair right away. A condensation leak delivers less of a health risk, but you should get it repaired before you have a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or unusual odors coming from your registers are indications that your system requires service.

If you think you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give O'Brien Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 610-257-7035 and we’ll be there to help. If your AC is running as it should, but it’s past due 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 serving you.
