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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is key to keeping you comfortable throughout the warmer Hattiesburg days. If the equipment breaks down, it can really compromise your comfort! So, how can you determine when you could 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 Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning a call if you think your AC is on the fritz.

If you see a lack of cooled air or decreased airflow, this is a definite sign that something isn’t right. Give the experts at Oak Grove 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 likely a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having problems with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, we are here to help.

Overall, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s usually a problem that needs AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, give us a call. You shouldn’t hear much from a properly working AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that generate abnormal sounds signify 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 you’re faced with a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or unusual odors coming from your registers are a sign that your system needs to be checked out.

If you feel you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 601-292-9763 and our team can help you. If your AC is running as it should, but it’s past due for a routine maintenance visit, we suggest you call to set one up. It could save you from expensive, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to working with you.
