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

Your air conditioner is vital to keeping you comfortable throughout the warmer Thousand Oaks 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 exhibit symptoms that it needs to be looked at before it breaks down completely. Be on the lookout for any of the following symptoms and give Air Max HVAC Inc 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 Air Max HVAC Inc 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 probably a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having challenges with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, we are here to help.

Typically, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s usually a problem that requires AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, call us. 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 create abnormal sounds indicate 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 have a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or unusual odors coming from your registers indicate your system needs to be checked out.

If you feel you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Air Max HVAC Inc a call at 805-217-8662 and we can help. If your AC is operating as it should, but it’s overdue for a routine maintenance visit, we urge you to call to set one up. It could save you from costly, larger repairs down the line. You can even schedule an appointment with us online if it’s easiest for you! We look forward to helping you.
