These 3 Air Conditioning Problems Require Emergency Repairs

emergency ac repairs

Any kinds of problems that you encounter with your air conditioner need to be handled quickly. Waiting to have repairs performed on your air conditioner will only allow the problems to get much worth, whereas a quick response will always limit damage and keep your air conditioner healthy. However, there are some problems that need more than a quick response and actually require emergency repairs.

At Perfect Comfort Inc., our Hudson Valley HVAC contractors are available 24/7 for any emergency repairs that you might need. But it’s important that you know when you have an emergency situation on your hand. If your air conditioning experiences any of the following problems, turn the system off immediately and contact us as soon as possible to have emergency repairs performed. Otherwise, it’s likely that you’ll need to have your air conditioning system replaced.

1. Short Cycling

When an air conditioner short cycles, it runs on and off over and over again every few minutes without ever completing a cycle. This problem could be caused by a problem with the thermostat, or it make be that the compressor is throwing off the AC’s rhythm. No matter what the cause of the issue, though, short cycling puts a huge amount of stress on your Hudson Valley home’s air conditioner, and if you don’t solve this problem immediately, you can significantly reduce the lifespan of your air conditioner. Call our professionals for emergency AC repairs, or you may end up destroying the system.

2. Loss of Cooling

If your air conditioner isn’t circulating cool air throughout your home, it can be extremely uncomfortable, and when temperatures are high enough, it may even be unsafe. It also means that your AC is in need of serious repairs.

When your air conditioner stops cooling your Hudson Valley home, it might be because of a refrigerant leak in the system. This will slowly deprive the AC of refrigerant until it’s finally totally incapable of operating. It may also be that the evaporator coil is freezing up, which prevents it from removing heat from your home. Both of these problems are very serious and need to be addressed by a qualified professional as soon as possible.

3. Grinding Noises

When you hear grinding noises coming from your air conditioning system, you can bet that you have a serious problem on your hands and need repairs ASAP. Most likely, the noises are being caused by the motor of the air handler, which is what distributes cooled air through your home. The air handler is essentially a fan attached to a motor.

The motor is almost constantly under a great deal of strain, and if its bearing aren’t properly lubricated, then the motor will experience a lot of friction. If this isn’t taken care of as soon as possible, the motor will burn itself out, and you’ll have to deal with very extensive repairs.

If you’re looking for emergency AC repairs in Hudson Valley, call Perfect Comfort Inc. at 845-497-1005, or fill out our online request form.
