Emergency AC Repair Newport News | How to Know if You Need Emergency AC Repair
From refrigerant leaks and drainage issues to faulty compressor fans, there are many problems that can pop up in your AC unit.
Issues become apparent as units kick into full use during spring and summer. Below are some symptoms that might indicate an Air Conditioning Unit Emergency. If you notice any of the following signs and symptoms with your home’s unit, call Bert’s Inc a licensed HVAC professional right away.
AC Is Not Working
It might seem obvious, but if you’ve tried the usual easy fixes like checking the thermostat settings and battery, confirming the power is working, and checking and/or replacing the air filters, then it’s time to shut the system down completely before further damage to the unit occurs.
A professional can then diagnose and repair the system before it gets turned back on.
Ice on Your AC Unit
In high temperatures, it might seem unusual to see ice on your AC unit. The evaporator coil freezes when the refrigerant flowing through the copper tubes gets too cold which, in turn, causes the moisture in the surrounding air to freeze.
The most common reason this happens is a freon leak. Freon is a dangerous substance and can seriously affect you and your family’s health. Call in Bert’s Inc immediately.
Spike in Your AC Home Electricity Bills
Higher bills are normal during peak times during summer and winter, sudden, and unprecedented change could be a sign of a wiring problem.
Smell Something Strange from your AC
AC units in good working order should never give off an odor. A burning smell emitting from your HVAC system is not a good sign and could indicate either a chemical leak or a serious electrical problem. If you smell something unusual, cut off power to the system and contact Bert’s Inc immediately
