We’re the Team to Call for Emergency Repairs
Memorial Day weekend. It’s the unofficial start of the summer season and will be here before we know it. For some of us, that means hosting a backyard barbecue.
When we think of backyard parties, we sometimes forget that our indoor space is an important part of the festivities. From bathroom trips to respites from the heat, some guests will spend time inside of our homes. As a result, an important item on a host’s to-do list should be making sure the air conditioning system is tuned up and ready to play its part. After all, one way to ruin a Memorial Day picnic at your home is when you need to call for AC emergency repair.
However, if you do need emergency AC repair, the team at Blue Ribbon Cooling & Heating is here for you 24/7. Don’t hesitate to call us, even on holidays and weekends. At Blue Ribbon, we’ve seen all too often what can happen when homeowners don’t schedule their pre-season AC tune-ups with us. It’s during these routine checkups that we often find (and fix) small problems before they spiral out of control into major disasters.
Here are four signs your AC isn’t working properly and needs our outstanding repair services:
- It’s blowing hot air, instead of cold. This could mean your AC compressor has failed or your system has a refrigerant leak. Whatever the problem is, our technicians have the skills and experience to diagnose it and restore your cool comfort.
- There’s moisture or water around your AC system. This could mean your drain tube is blocked and condensation is backing up. However, it also could be something more serious, such as a refrigerant leak.
- Your system is making strange sounds. When your AC makes a quiet, even noise, that’s normal. But when you start hearing squealing, grinding or grating, that’s not normal. Turn off your system and call for an emergency repair. When you hear any of these sounds, leaving your system on could result in the motor burning up.
- You notice odd smells. A strange odor could be caused by mold or mildew growth. It also could mean your AC system’s insulation is burning. If you notice a burning odor, you should turn your system off immediately and call in the professionals. If you smell mold or mildew, you should clean around the drain and replace the filter. If that doesn’t solve the problem, we can inspect and professionally clean your system.
If you notice these problems or anything else that makes you feel uneasy about your AC system, we recommend you schedule a service call. We also encourage homeowners to put pre-season air conditioning tune-ups on their calendars to prevent major problems from occurring during the hot months ahead. Of course, we’ll be there for you when you need us most.
If you do run into trouble, though, keep in mind that we offer 24-hour AC repair to get your system back up and running smoothly and efficiently. Call us at 512.866.9151 or contact us through the convenient form on our website.
