You depend on your air conditioner to keep you cool on the warm Libertyville summer days. When it’s time for an AC repair, your air conditioner will give you a number of signs to let you know you need to reach out to TopTec Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical 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 ring. Unfortunately, when your air conditioner doesn’t keep up with your cooling needs, it’s generally a more serious problem. Your AC unit may have condenser problems or it may be running low on Freon. Low airflow could also be a sign of a ductwork issue. Whatever the problem is, you can be sure our team will be there to guide you to your best choices, whether it’s an AC repair or investment in a new air conditioner.
Leaks from your air conditioner are often a sign that an AC repair is needed. If you see a leak from your AC, call for a repair right away. 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 bigger problem like mold growth.
It’s a rule of thumb that if any part of your HVAC system starts to make uncommon sounds, it’s probably 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 mean the need for something as simple as needing lubricant in some of the moving parts to something more serious that could lead to a breakdown. Your best move 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 problematic electrical issues.
Sometimes it may appear your air conditioner is having problems, but it’s really your thermostat than needs attention. If your home temperature isn’t where you’re programming it to be, the pros at TopTec Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical 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.
