Signs that AC Repair is Needed

You trust your air conditioner to keep you cool on the warm Rapid City 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 Street Heating & Sheet Metal Inc to keep your summer days cool.

One of the most clear signs you are in need of an AC repair is a reduction in cooled air and/or poor airflow. If your space isn’t staying cool, give us a shout. Unfortunately, when your air conditioner doesn’t keep up with your cooling needs, it’s usually 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 symptom of a ductwork issue. Whatever the challenge is, you can be sure our experts 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 almost always a sign that an AC repair is needed. If you see a leak from your AC, call for a repair immediately. 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 is lower, but you will still want to take care of it before it turns into a larger 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 categories of troubling sounds include squealing or grinding. Ultimately, 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 lead to a breakdown. Your best chances are to give us a call to help determine the best steps.

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

Sometimes it may seem that 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 experts at Street Heating & Sheet Metal Inc 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.
