5 Signs Your Air Conditioner Needs AC Repair

  1. Water/other is leaking: Leaking water can be a huge problem! Not only is your AC malfunctioning but the moisture can also cause damage to your home. Sometimes it could even be refrigerant leaking. If that’s the cause, you want to call us right away since refrigerant leaks can cause serious issues to your health.
  2. Lack of cool air: This is an easy giveaway that your system needs ac repair. You might have your AC turned all the way up, and there is simply no cool air coming out. Sometimes this is an easy repair, but other times like when the system’s Freon levels are low, you could be looking at replacing the whole unit.
  3. Weird sounds: Have you noticed noises like grating, squealing or hissing? Every noise might mean a different thing, so you want to contact us right away.
  4. Weird smells: Just like the sounds, the smells could mean a variety of things. But don’t ignore them! It could either be mold or burned out wire insulation.
  5. Bills are high: A significant hike in your electricity bill is cause for concern. Your AC might be working extra hard to keep your home cool, but it shouldn’t be. This would indicate your something in your system is not working right, before poking around just call us so we can figure it out.
