Here are the 5 warning signs your AC needs immediate service

1. You notice unusual noises coming from the unit

A clear indication of a problem with your air conditioner is a screeching or scratching sound coming from the outdoor condenser. This could mean that one of the belts has worked its way out of proper position. Without being fixed, the belt will continue slipping until it comes completely off its pulley and can potentially cause more damage.

2. Not enough air flowing from the vents

If you notice the airflow in your home is weak or nonexistent, it could be that your compressor could be going out or that there is a serious leak in your ductwork. If the ductwork is the issue, this means there is a tear or block somewhere deep in the ductwork system inside your home. Have one of our techs come out and take a look—we could identify the source of the problem and lack of airflow before your system experiences further issues.

3. Unusually high energy bills

A sudden spike in your energy bills during the summer is typical, but if the amount is excessively high—say, more than double the normal amount—it could mean that there is an AC issue. This could be caused by a number of things, from the compressor failing to a torn or blocked air duct. The best way to find out what is going on is to call the experienced AC professionals at Reimer. Our team has the right tools and equipment to find and repair the problem as soon as possible!

4. Foul smell while system is on

A foul mildew smell that is coming from the vents while your AC unit is running could mean fungus is forming in your ductwork. Some forms of mold are hazardous to humans and animals, so this is an issue that needs to be handled right away. Unlike being uncomfortable in your home, this situation really cannot be put off. We offer Day or Night emergency service. Don’t wait when something is wrong. Call the team at Reimer!

5. Moisture leaking from the unit

If you notice a wet spot around your unit, it could mean that the condensation drain tube is blocked or busted. However, it could mean that poisonous Freon is leaking from your system, so calling the team at Reimer is your best bet here to avoid any serious damage.
