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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is crucial to keeping you comfortable on warmer Cedar Rapids 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 Ilten's Incorporated a call if you think your AC is on the fritz.

If you notice a lack of cooled air or decreased airflow, this is a definite sign that something is wrong. Give the team at Ilten's Incorporated a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t stay 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 are here to help.

Typically, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s probably a problem that requires AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, call us. You shouldn’t hear a lot of noise from a properly working 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 poses less of a health risk, but you should get it repaired before you’re faced with a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or unfamiliar odors coming from your registers indicate your system requires service.

If you suspect you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Ilten's Incorporated a call at 319-208-3295 and we can help. If your AC is running as it should, but it’s past due for a routine maintenance visit, we encourage you to call to set one up. It could save you from expensive, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to helping you.
