Signs that AC Repair is Needed

You trust your air conditioner to keep you comfortable on the warm York summer days. When you are ready for an AC repair, your air conditioner will give you a few signs to let you know you need to reach out to Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning to keep your summer days cool.

One of the most obvious signs you are in need of an AC repair is a lack of cooled air and/or poor airflow. If your space 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 difficulty is, you can be sure our team will be there to guide you to your best solutions, 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 see 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 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 unusual sounds, it’s potentially a sign of trouble. When it comes to your AC, these categories 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 signify the need for a solution as simple as needing lubricant in some of the moving parts to something more serious that could end with a breakdown. Your best chances are to give us a call to help nip the problem in the bud.

If you observe any odor coming from your vents, it could point to some AC-related issues, too. You should always have an expert 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 feel like your air conditioner is having problems, but it’s actually your thermostat than wants attention. If your home temperature isn’t where you’re programming it to be, the team at Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning will be able to check 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.
