Common Types Of AC Emergencies
“Out of sight, out of mind” doesn’t apply to an AC emergency. When one of these four common situations occurs, it’s important to call Gordon’s Heating & Air quickly for air conditioner repair residents can rely on.
No Cold Air
A lack of cool air in a home or business becomes an emergency when the room temperature and humidity reach unhealthy levels. Further, if a business is without air conditioning for an extended amount of time, it may lose customers and revenue.
Water Isn’t Draining Away Properly
Every unit produces moisture and water, which generally drains away through the condensate drain. But if this drain becomes clogged or otherwise interrupted, the water can back up into the home or business and potentially damage floors and walls. Plus, it creates a perfect environment for mold and mildew to grow.
Grinding, Buzzing, or Popping Noise
Air conditioners normally make sounds when they operate, but noises out of the ordinary can signal that your unit needs AC repair. A grinding noise usually comes from the air handler, specifically the fan motor, when the bearings don’t have sufficient lubrication. Buzzing and/or popping sounds often relate to an electrical issue within the system. Turn off the unit and call Gordon’s Heating & Air.
Similarly to a buzzing or popping noise, a burning smell usually indicates that an electrical issue has melted one or more internal components. To prevent a potential fire hazard, turn off the unit and call us for immediate service.
What Is An AC Emergency?
The definition of emergency can vary from person to person, but in general, Gordon’s Heating & Air advises using these guidelines to determine what is an AC emergency.
Though AC breakdowns rarely pose a serious threat, sometimes emergency AC repairs are necessary to ensure the safety of the people and pets inside a home or business. Examples include the fixing of electrical issues, refrigerant leaks, and malfunctioning air conditioners with UV filters. These filters are used to improve indoor air quality, especially for people with respiratory issues.
Comfort also has a subjective definition. One person may be able to sleep through the night with just a fan, while another may not fathom the situation. Whatever your tolerance level, Gordon’s Heating & Air is always available for after-hours air conditioner repair.
Avoid Emergency AC Repair With Maintenance
The No. 1 reason for unexpectedly needing to schedule AC repair is a lack of regular maintenance. Generally performed twice a year, maintenance allows our NATE-certified technicians to inspect the system for signs of wear and tear. It helps the unit run in optimum condition for many years, which results in energy savings and lower utility bills. Gordon’s Heating & Air is ready to put any residential or light commercial air conditioner in top shape — call today to schedule a maintenance checkup!
