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

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is crucial to keeping you comfortable during the warmer Beaverton days. If the equipment breaks down, it can really influence your comfort! So, how can you determine when you may need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will show symptoms that it needs care before it breaks down completely. Be on the lookout for any of the following symptoms and give Garoken Energy Co. Inc. 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 off. Give the experts at Garoken Energy Co. Inc. 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 likely a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having challenges with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, our professionals can provide support.

Typically, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s usually a problem that needs AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, call us. You shouldn’t hear a lot of noise from a properly functioning AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that create abnormal sounds imply a potential breakdown.

If your AC has a leak, contact us for an AC repair right away. A condensation leak delivers less of a health risk, but you should get it repaired before you’re faced with a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or strange odors coming from your registers indicate your system needs service.

If you think you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give Garoken Energy Co. Inc. a call at 503-374-1934 and we can help. If your AC is operating as it should, but it’s behind schedule for a routine maintenance visit, we suggest you call to set one up. It could save you from expensive, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to working with you.
