Signs that AC Repair is Needed

You depend on your air conditioner to keep you comfy on the warm Lodi 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 contact Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning 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 home isn’t staying cool, give us a shout. Unfortunately, when your air conditioner doesn’t maintain your cooling needs, it’s typically a more serious problem. Your AC unit may have condenser issues or it may be running low on Freon. Low airflow could also be a sign of a ductwork issue. Whatever the difficulty is, you can be sure our experts will be there to guide you to your best options, 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 needed. If you observe a leak from your AC, call for a repair asap. If you have a refrigerant leak, it could trigger health problems for your family. If it’s a leak due to condensation, the health risk decreases, but you will still want to take care of it before it turns into a greater problem like mold growth.

It’s a rule of thumb that if any part of your HVAC system starts to make unique sounds, it’s potentially a sign of trouble. When it comes to your AC, these kinds of troubling sounds include squealing or grinding. Essentially, your air conditioner should run 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 a solution as simple as needing lubricant in some of the moving parts to something more serious that could end with a breakdown. Your best bet is to give us a call to help nip the problem in the bud.

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

Sometimes it may appear your air conditioner is having problems, but it’s indeed your thermostat than needs attention. If your home temperature isn’t where you’re programming it to be, the pros at Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning will be able to check 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 upgrade your thermostat.
