When Is an AC Repair Need Serious?

It’s safe to say that all AC repair needs should be addressed in a timely manner. However, there are some that can be considered more serious than others. These are usually AC repair needs that cross over into being more dangerous if they are left unaddressed.

Anytime you think that you need AC repair in Campbell County, WY, give our team a call right away. We can talk to you about what you’re experiencing and help you determine whether or not the AC repair need is serious. You can also keep reading to learn more about some of the signs that can indicate that an AC problem needs to be addressed sooner rather than later.

Examples of Minor AC Repair Needs

Minor AC issues can be addressed when we make small adjustments to your system during regular maintenance. Usually, minor AC problems don’t even produce any signs. They are issues that we uncover and fix before they get out of hand.

An example might be a bolt that is loose and we need to tighten it. Or maybe your ductwork is rattling because it is loosening up from its secure position. Yes, these are problems that you need to address, but they don’t constitute emergencies. 

You can get away with scheduling a normal appointment and keeping your AC operating as normal until we can address minor problems. It is important to note that any AC problem needs to be fixed sooner rather than later. The major problems an air conditioner can wind up having often stem from these smaller problems that go unaddressed and worsen with time.

Signs of Urgent AC Repair Needs

If your air conditioner begins to make loud noises like banging, screeching, or scraping, something major may be going wrong. Fan blades may be bent and rubbing against the surrounding enclosure during operation. Or maybe the air compressor is having problems with a normal operation. 

These are components that cost a lot of money to replace, so you want to address repair needs right away and avoid an even more expensive project. Anytime you hear very loud noises coming from your air conditioner you need to turn the unit off and leave it off until our team can check it out. This helps to prevent any additional damage from occurring.

You should also pay attention to changes in air conditioning cycles. If your air conditioner begins to turn on and off frequently, or turns on and stays on for an extended period of time, that’s a red flag. You may not think this is a huge deal, but it can add a lot of wear and tear to your air conditioner and drastically shorten the lifespan. 

Unusual operating cycles can also increase monthly energy costs. When operation problems are not fixed, the damage inside your unit can be serious. Even after we fix whatever the problem is, other components may remain strained and worn down from picking up the slack.
