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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is vital to keeping you comfortable during the warmer Gresham days. If it breaks down, it can really compromise your comfort! So, how do you recognize when you may need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will show symptoms that it needs care before it breaks down completely. Watch for any of the following symptoms and give Honke Heating & AC 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 is off. Give the professionals at Honke Heating & AC a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t stay 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 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 probably a problem that warrants AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, contact us. You shouldn’t hear loud sounds from a properly working AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that cause abnormal sounds imply a potential breakdown.

If your AC has a leak, schedule 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 strange odors coming from your registers are a sign that your system needs service.

If you feel you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Honke Heating & AC a call at 503-663-8033 and we can help. If your AC is running 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. We look forward to helping you.
