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

Your air conditioner is vital to keeping you comfortable throughout the warmer Albuquerque days. If the equipment breaks down, it can really impact your comfort! So, how can you determine when you could need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will show 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 Desert Suns Heating & Cooling 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 off. Give the professionals at Desert Suns Heating & Cooling a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t remain cool. When your air conditioner 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.

In general, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s likely a problem that warrants AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, contact us. You shouldn’t hear a lot of noise from a properly functioning AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that generate abnormal sounds imply a potential breakdown.

If you see a leak from your AC, contact us for an AC repair right away. A condensation leak delivers less of a health risk, but it’s wise to get it repaired before there is a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or unusual odors coming from your registers indicate your system needs service.

If you feel you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Desert Suns Heating & Cooling a call at 505-994-9176 and we’ll be there to help. If your AC is working as it should, but it’s overdue for a routine maintenance visit, we encourage you to call to set one up. It could save you from pricey, larger repairs down the line. You can even schedule an appointment with us online if that’s easier! We look forward to helping you.
