Signs that AC Repair is Needed

You trust your air conditioner to keep you comfy on the warm Carlsbad summer days. When the time comes for an AC repair, your air conditioner will give you a few signs to let you know you need to call Banister's Heating & Air Conditioning Services to keep your summer days cool.

One of the most clear signs you are in need of an AC repair is the absence 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 usually a more serious problem. Your AC unit may have condenser concerns or it may be running low on Freon. Low airflow could also be a indication of a ductwork issue. Whatever the challenge 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 observe a leak from your AC, call for a repair asap. If you have a refrigerant leak, it could cause health problems for your family. If it’s a leak due to condensation, the health risk lessens, 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 probably a sign of trouble. When it comes to your AC, these types of troubling sounds include squealing or grinding. Essentially, your air conditioner should work 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 something as simple as needing lubricant in some of the moving parts to something more serious that could result in a breakdown. Your best bet is to give us a call to help find the solution.

If you smell any odor coming from your vents, it could point to some AC-related challenges, too. You should always have a professional help you get to the root of any odors related to your HVAC system, as they could range from mold growth to problematic electrical issues.

Sometimes it may feel like your air conditioner is having problems, but it’s really your thermostat than requires attention. If your home temperature isn’t where you’re programming it to be, the team at Banister's Heating & Air Conditioning Services will be able to tell 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.
