The most obvious sign that your AC needs help? When it stops working altogether, and you and your family stop feeling cool air coming through the vents, no matter what you do with the thermostat. However, this problem could have a number of sources, from a mechanical failure in the AC system itself to an issue with the thermostat or the temperature reader in the system.
Even if you aren’t sure what has caused the shutdown, call the experts at Air Control and let us safely inspect your system and identify the problem.
The AC is making unnatural sounds or noises
Think about what your air conditioner normally sounds like. If this noise is far from the usual, it may be a good time to consider having a professional take a look. At times, loose parts on the inside of an AC system can scrape against other metal, causing a high screeching or low grinding sound.
Other problems may be indicated by rattling, shaking, or loud, instantaneous bangs. If you hear any of these, call Air Control. We’ll help you sort out what’s the normal sound of your air conditioner running from what could indicate a serious equipment malfunction.
There’s something off about the smell
Strange smells that are coming from your air conditioner may be an indicator of a major problem. For example, the smell of burning rubber—or burning, in general—may indicate that wires within our air conditioner have burned through the insulation and are now exposed to either the outside air or to the insulation.
In contrast to this, a damp, musty smell coming from your air conditioner could be a sign that the drainage isn’t working the way that it should and that water—and therefore potentially mildew and mold—has built up at the base of the system.
If you smell either of these odors, contact the service professionals at Air Control. We’ll inspect your system and make sure everything is working the way that it should.
It’s leaking refrigerant
This could be a major health and environmental hazard. If your air conditioner is losing coolant, either through the system or through the vents in your home, call Air Control so that we can inspect and assess any potential damage.
