Couple getting Air Conditioner Repair

Signs that AC Repair is Needed

You depend on your air conditioner to keep you comfy on the warm Midlothian summer days. When the time comes for an AC repair, your air conditioner will give you a few signs to let you know you need to reach out to Daniel's Heating & Refrigeration Corp. to keep your summer days cool.

One of the most blatant signs you are in need of an AC repair is a lack of cooled air and/or poor airflow. If your home isn’t staying cool, give us a shout. Unfortunately, when your air conditioner doesn’t sustain your cooling needs, it’s typically a more serious problem. Your AC unit may have condenser problems or it may be running low on Freon. Low airflow could also be a sign of a ductwork issue. Whatever the challenge is, you can be sure our experts will be there to guide you to your best choices, whether it’s an AC repair or investment in a new air conditioner.

Leaks from your air conditioner are almost always a sign that an AC repair is in order. If you observe a leak from your AC, call for a repair immediately. If you have a refrigerant leak, it could produce health problems for your family. If it’s a leak due to condensation, the health risk lessens, but you will still want to take care of it before it turns into a bigger problem like mold growth.

It’s a rule of thumb that if any part of your HVAC system starts to make unusual 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 operate 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 find the solution.

If you smell any odor coming from your vents, it could point to some AC-related problems, too. You should always have a technician help you get to the root of any odors related to your HVAC system, as they could range from mold growth to difficult electrical issues.

Sometimes it may seem that your air conditioner is having problems, but it’s indeed your thermostat than wants attention. If your home temperature isn’t where you’re programming it to be, the team at Daniel's Heating & Refrigeration Corp. will be able to confirm if the problem is actually with your thermostat. It might just be a wiring problem or a blocked sensor, or it may be time to replace the thermostat.
