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

Your air conditioner is vital to keeping you comfortable during the warmer Sylmar days. If it breaks down, it can really compromise your comfort! So, how can you determine when you may need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will show symptoms that it needs to be looked at before it breaks down completely. Watch for any of the following symptoms and give American Premier Heating & Air Conditioning a call if you feel 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 professionals at American Premier Heating & Air Conditioning 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 possibly a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having problems with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, we can help.

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

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

Bad or strange odors coming from your registers are indications that your system needs service.

If you feel you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give American Premier Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 818-370-7266 and we’ll be there to help. 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. You can even schedule an appointment with us online if that’s easier! We look forward to helping you.
