When to Call for Immediate AC Repair in Washington, DC

Of course, before you know you need to call us to repair your air conditioning system, you need to know that there’s a problem to begin with. Often the problem will be all too evident. If you turn on your air conditioning on a sweltering summer day and nothing happens, you know it’s time to call for repairs.

But this is probably the last situation you want to wind up in. After all, it’s certainly preferable to catch problems earlier so that you can have the repairs done without losing your air conditioning all together for any amount of time. To do that, though, you have to know what warning signs to watch out for that could alert you to the need for repairs. If you call us as soon as you think there’s a problem, we could very possibly be able to fix your system before it stops working entirely.

Warning Signs

So what are these early warning signs? Well, there are quite a few different things you can watch for. To begin with, any excess noise or vibration coming from the compressor should set off an alarm for you. These parts can be pretty noisy anyway, but you’ll be able to tell the difference if they start making an unusual amount of noise.

Uneven cooling in the different parts of your home can also be a good indication that something isn’t working right within your air conditioning system. Similarly, uneven or excessive humidity in your home is never a good sign. With these types of problems, you’ll probably have a hard time pinpointing exactly where the issue originated, but you’ll certainly know it’s time to call in the air conditioning experts.

You may only need something as simple as a thorough vent cleaning, or there may be a more systemic problem in your air conditioner. Either way, though, you’ll be better off if you deal with it immediately rather than ignoring it until it turns into a bigger issue.

You should also suspect that you have an air conditioning problem if your energy bills seem to be going up dramatically or inexplicably. This can mean that your air conditioning system is using a much greater amount of energy to complete the same amount of work that it did before, and is certainly indicative of a malfunction somewhere along the way. While you may not notice a difference in the quality of your air conditioning, your system is likely in need of repair.

Schedule Air Conditioning Repair Services in Washington, DC

With emergency repair services from Polar Bear, you won’t have to go long without a working air conditioning system. We’ll have someone out as fast as possible to take care of the problem right away. And sometimes it’s not possible to identify problems before they cause your system to stop working entirely.

If you can spot one of those early warning signs, though, it can save you a considerable amount of time and frustration in the long run. The repairs required in these circumstances are often much less invasive and less expensive than emergency repairs required when your system shuts down completely. So don’t wait–give us a call today to schedule AC repair services in Washington, DC. and Northern Virginia.
