You rely on your air conditioner to keep you comfy on the warm West Columbia summer days. When it’s time for an AC repair, your air conditioner will give you a few signs to let you know you need to call Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. to keep your summer days cool.
One of the most blatant signs you are in need of an AC repair is a reduction in cooled air and/or poor airflow. If your space isn’t staying cool, give us a call. Unfortunately, when your air conditioner doesn’t maintain your cooling needs, it’s usually a more serious problem. Your AC unit may have condenser concerns or it may be running low on Freon. Low airflow could also be a symptom of a ductwork issue. Whatever the difficulty is, you can be sure our pros will be there to guide you to your best options, whether it’s an AC repair or investment in a new air conditioner.
Leaks from your air conditioner are normally a sign that an AC repair is required. If you observe a leak from your AC, call for a repair right away. If you have a refrigerant leak, it could trigger health problems for your family. If it’s a leak due to condensation, the health risk is lower, but you will still want to take care of it before it turns into a greater problem like mold growth.
It’s a rule of thumb that if any part of your HVAC system starts to make uncommon sounds, it’s potentially a sign of trouble. When it comes to your AC, these kinds of troubling sounds include squealing or grinding. Ultimately, your air conditioner should work relatively quietly and you shouldn’t be able to hear more than the sound of your fan kick on or shut off. Sounds from your AC could mean the need for something as simple as needing lubricant in some of the moving parts to something more serious that could end with a breakdown. Your best bet is to give us a call to help determine the best steps.
If you notice any odor coming from your vents, it could point to some AC-related issues, too. You should always have an expert help you get to the root of any odors related to your HVAC system, as they could range from mold growth to tough electrical issues.
Sometimes it may seem that your air conditioner is having problems, but it’s really your thermostat than requires attention. If your home temperature isn’t where you’re programming it to be, the team at Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. will be able to tell if the problem is actually with your thermostat. It could just be a wiring problem or a blocked sensor, or it may be time to get a new thermostat.
