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

Your air conditioner is crucial to keeping you comfortable during the warmer Irvine days. If your system breaks down, it can really compromise your comfort! So, how do you recognize when you might need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will display symptoms that it needs attention before it breaks down completely. Watch for any of the following symptoms and give True Home Heating and Air Conditioning a call if you think your AC is on the fritz.

If you notice a lack of cooled air or decreased airflow, this is a definite sign that something is wrong. Give the team at True Home Heating and 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 probably a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having issues with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, our professionals can provide support.

In general, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s probably a problem that requires AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, call us. You shouldn’t hear loud sounds 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 you notice a leak coming from your AC, call us for an AC repair immediately. A condensation leak carries less of a health risk, but you’ll want to get it repaired before there is a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or unfamiliar odors coming from your registers are indications that your system needs service.

If you suspect you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give True Home Heating and Air Conditioning a call at 949-258-7259 and our team can help you. If your AC is operating as it should, but it’s past due for a routine maintenance visit, we urge 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.
