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

Your air conditioner is vital to keeping you comfortable throughout the warmer Delray Beach days. If it breaks down, it can really compromise your comfort! So, how do you recognize when you might need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will show symptoms that it needs attention before it breaks down completely. Check for any of the following symptoms and give Kilbourne Heating & AC 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 is wrong. Give the team at Kilbourne Heating & AC a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t remain cool. When your AC can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s likely a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having issues with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, we can help.

In general, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s probably a problem that warrants AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, call 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 notice a leak coming from your AC, call us for an AC repair immediately. A condensation leak delivers less of a health risk, but you should get it repaired before there is a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or unfamiliar odors coming from your registers indicate your system needs to be checked out.

If you feel you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Kilbourne Heating & AC a call at 561-287-7071 and our team can help you. If your AC is operating as it should, but it’s overdue for a routine maintenance visit, we urge you to call to set one up. It could save you from pricey, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to helping you.
