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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is crucial to keeping you comfortable on warmer Keokuk days. If it breaks down, it can really impact your comfort! So, how do you recognize when you may need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will show symptoms that it needs attention before it breaks down completely. Watch for any of the following symptoms and give WM J Kraus & Son 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 experts at WM J Kraus & Son 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 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.

Overall, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s likely 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 imply a potential breakdown.

If you see a leak from your AC, contact us for an AC repair right away. A condensation leak poses less of a health risk, but it’s wise to get it repaired before there is a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or strange odors coming from your registers are a sign that your system requires service.

If you feel you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give WM J Kraus & Son a call at 319-229-2318 and we can help. If your AC is operating 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 pricey, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to helping you.
