Picture this: The weather forecast predicts highs in the 90s, and suddenly your air conditioner stops working. Unfortunately, it’s not the week you’ll be on vacation, either. You need help, and you need it now. If you live in the Akron, Canton or Cleveland area, we can fix your air conditioner right away. Here are several signs you need to give us a call.
Dampness on or around the unit
If you see condensation or fluid on or around your system, it’s an emergency. Turn your system off to prevent electrical problems or even a fire. If the leak is refrigerant, it poses a serious health risk to you and your family. After your system is off, call us right away so we can determine the fluid source and correct the issue.
Low air flow
Does the air flow from vents in different rooms seem insufficient compared to past years? You may have problems in your duct work, fan blades, or compressor that is slowing the air flow to your whole house or to certain rooms. It’s best to have one of our technicians evaluate your air conditioner issue as soon as you notice a problem.
When you first turn on your unit at the beginning of warm weather, it’s normal to hear a humming sound. But if you hear squealing, grinding, or clattering noises, that’s a sign that a component of your system is broken. Turn off your thermostat and call us as soon as possible to minimize further damage to your system.
If you notice unusual scents coming from your air conditioner vents, it may indicate that the insulation on the system wires needs replacing. It also may mean that mold is growing and circulating throughout your home, which can cause health issues. We can determine the source of the problem and fix it, and we may recommend an annual tuneup to prevent the problem from reoccurring.
Thermostat doesn’t work
If you are adjusting your thermostat without feeling any change in temperature at different times of day, the thermostat itself may be malfunctioning. If you have a programmable thermostat that isn’t responding to the time settings, we can fix the problem for you. Replacing your thermostat is a quick fix to get your home cool again.
Uneven temperatures in your home
Is one room in your home perfectly cool or even too cool, while others are stuffy? If your ducts are blocked or malfunctioning, or if your compressor is failing, you need to call for professional service. We will fix the problem and clean your ducts to get your system running again.
