Signs that AC Repair is Needed

You trust your air conditioner to keep you comfy on the warm McHenry summer days. When it’s time for an AC repair, your air conditioner will give you a number of signs to let you know you need to call Jett's Heating & Air Inc. to keep your summer days cool.

One of the most clear signs you are in need of an AC repair is a reduction in cooled air and/or poor airflow. If your home isn’t staying cool, give us a shout. Unfortunately, when your air conditioner doesn’t maintain your cooling needs, it’s usually a more serious problem. Your AC unit may have condenser issues or it may be running low on Freon. Low airflow could also be a sign of a ductwork issue. Whatever the difficulty is, you can be sure our experts 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 produce health problems for your family. If it’s a leak due to condensation, the health risk decreases, 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 uncommon sounds, it’s likely 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 indicate the need for a fix as simple as needing lubricant in some of the moving parts to something more serious that could result in a breakdown. Your best move is to give us a call to help find the solution.

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

Sometimes it may seem that your air conditioner is having problems, but it’s actually your thermostat than requires attention. If your home temperature isn’t where you’re programming it to be, the experts at Jett's Heating & Air Inc. will be able to check 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 replace the thermostat.
