Signs Your AC Needs Repairs

It can be difficult to determine if your air conditioner needs to be repaired. If you experience any of the following issues, it is best to contact Monticello Air for help.

You may need AC repair if you notice any of the following:

  • Your system is blowing warm air

How to Save Money on AC Repairs

Having your air conditioner replaced can be a costly endeavor, especially if it stops working before it should. However, you don’t have to break the bank to have your system serviced. In fact, there are a few things you can do to save money on AC repair.

You can save money on AC repair if you:

  • Schedule maintenance service before the summer season each year
  • Check your filters regularly and change them if they are dirty
  • Turn your thermostat down 10-15 degrees when you are away from home
  • Have your system serviced by a certified professional

We are always ready to help you with your air conditioner repair needs.

When Is AC Repair Considered an Emergency?

AC repair is considered an emergency under several circumstances that pose immediate risks to the health, safety, or structural integrity of a home. Here are some key scenarios where AC repair should be treated as an emergency:

  • Extreme Heat Conditions: If the air conditioning system fails during a heatwave or periods of extremely high temperatures, especially if vulnerable individuals such as the elderly, children, or those with medical conditions are present, it constitutes an emergency. Prolonged exposure to high heat can lead to heat exhaustion or heat stroke.
  • Electrical Issues: If the AC system is causing electrical problems, such as tripped breakers, burning smells, or visible sparks, it is a serious safety hazard that requires immediate attention to prevent potential fires or electrical shocks.
  • Refrigerant Leaks: Leaks of refrigerant (e.g., Freon) can be dangerous, as they may cause health issues, including respiratory problems, and are harmful to the environment. Additionally, refrigerant leaks can cause the AC system to stop cooling effectively, exacerbating the problem during hot weather.
  • Complete System Failure: A complete breakdown of the AC unit, especially during peak summer months, can be considered an emergency due to the discomfort and potential health risks associated with high indoor temperatures.
  • Water Leaks and Flooding: If the AC unit is leaking water significantly, it can cause water damage to the home, leading to mold growth and structural damage. This requires urgent repair to prevent extensive damage and mitigate health risks associated with mold.
  • Unusual Noises or Odors: Strange noises (like grinding, squealing, or banging) or unpleasant odors (such as burning or moldy smells) can indicate serious internal problems with the AC unit, such as motor failure or mold growth, which need immediate attention to avoid further damage and ensure safe operation.

In any of these situations, it’s crucial to contact our professional HVAC technicians for emergency HVAC services.
