Top Reasons to Call for Emergency AC Repair

Annual maintenance can help prevent most major repairs, but if your air conditioner stops working or is exhibiting any of the following symptoms, call for service right away!

Reduced Airflow

A sudden lack of airflow throughout your home may be a sign of one of the following:

  • Dirty or clogged air filter – Before calling for AC repair, check the filter and replace it if needed.
  • Frozen evaporator coils – Coils may freeze due to insufficient clearance around the outdoor unit, a dirty air filter, dirty coils, or a refrigerant leak.
  • Malfunctioning AC blower – The blower fan is responsible for forcing the air through your vents, but if it becomes dirty or worn, airflow may be reduced.

Strange Odors

Under normal circumstances, your AC should not emit any odors, but if you notice a musty smell blowing from your vents, you may have mold growth due to water leakage or excess humidity. A burning smell from the blower or outside unit may be a sign of faulty wiring, blown circuitry, or system failure, requiring immediate investigation from a licensed professional.

Loud or Unusual Noises

Sudden loud or unusual noises such as squealing, screaming, grinding, or hissing are indicative of loose, worn, or malfunctioning components. Turn off the unit and call for emergency AC repair to avoid further damage.

Lack of Cold Air

If there is warm air blowing out of your supply vents, first check the thermostat to ensure that it is set to “Cool” rather than “Heat” and that the setpoint is several degrees lower than the current temperature in the room before calling for emergency AC repair.

Refrigerant or Water Leakage

Condensation is a natural by-product of your cooling system, and a small amount of water leakage may occur from time to time, but if you notice large amounts of standing water around the unit, call for immediate repair.

AC Not Working

If your AC is running but not cooling, or won’t turn on at all, check the circuit breaker to ensure there is power to the unit. If the breaker is off, turn it back to the “On” position, but if it blows again, leave it off and call for emergency AC repair services.
