When you need repair services for your air conditioning system, it is fairly straight forward. When your air conditioner is better suited for an emergency service, however, you may not know what constitutes an emergency. Ultimately, your AC unit will tell you when it’s in trouble and you need to know the signs. You have to know what to watch for. Just because they need repair doesn’t always mean the air conditioning units won’t stop operating. If you are not paying attention, you might be none the wiser, they might keep limping along. The more damaged the unit can become, which means a higher repair bill with the longer this goes on, unfortunately. In some cases, the air conditioning unit may need replacing prematurely altogether. Today, we at Hal Mechanical would like to help you avoid that extra high bill and how to identify emergency air conditioning services, though they may not seem like an emergency.
Is a Leaking AC an Emergency? What About Warm Air Blowing?
1) Smelly AC Odors. Burning smells may be associated with burning smells from food being left too long on the stove, or perhaps the mildew musky smells are written off as being a rodent that crawled into your attic and died. In any case, if these off-putting odors are coming from the air conditioner unit, it could be bad news. There may be a problem with the system overheating that could be a fire hazard. Unclean air is circulating through your home and could be making you sick if mold or mildew is built up inside the system.
2) Condensation & Moisture Around AC. Unusual condensation or pools of water around the windows or air conditioning unit that is noticed definitely points to a problem. Whether if it is something simple problem, like a blocked drain tube, or a more serious issue, like a refrigerant leak, you want to call in a professional for diagnostic and quality repairs.
3) Warm Air is Blowing In. If your air conditioner is otherwise running normally, except that it is not blowing cool air, but warm air, there is a problem. The unit may have a coolant leak or need to be recharged, or a filthy system could also be causing the trouble. If you want cool air to flow once more, someone needs to check the unit to figure out what’s wrong regardless.
4) Airflow is Low. There is a problem if there doesn’t seem to be much airflow while the system is running. A dirty filter is the most common cause of low airflow. However, there are also other issues that can be causing this such as small animals sometimes crawling inside air vents to build their nests. Over time, these blockages cause less airflow and can damage the system.
