Contacting Miranda Plumbing & Air Conditioning about routine AC tune-up services is a good way to reduce your risk of having an emergency situation involving your cooling system. Nonetheless, if you do find yourself dealing with an unexpected air conditioning problem, there are a few steps you can take, which we go over below.
Clear Away Outside Unit Debris
Even if your AC installation included careful placement of your outside unit, debris can still get inside. Once you're noticing performance issues with your cooling system, the problem could be debris that's blocking or affecting your outside unit. Do a quick inspection to verify if this is the case; try to clear away anything you can safely reach and remove.
Check the Filter and Thermostat
You'll be more likely to need urgent AC repair in Fort Pierce, FL, if you're not regularly changing your filter. If it's been a while since you've cleaned or changed your filter and you're noticing reduced airflow, uneven cooling, or similar issues, check to see if it's dirty or clogged. In some cases, changing the filter can make a big difference. In addition, check your thermostat to make sure incorrect settings aren't causing your system to not work as expected.
Turn Off Your System If You're Noticing Unusual Noises
If your air conditioner is making loud or odd noises during operation, err on the side of caution and turn it off until it can be properly inspected and repaired. You'll also want to quickly turn off your cooling system and contact one of our experts when faced with emergency situations involving unusual odors during operation, wiring issues, leaking refrigerant
Give Our Team a Call
Having an air conditioning emergency doesn't necessarily mean you will need an AC replacement right away. That said, you'll also want to call Miranda Plumbing & Air Conditioning if you suspect that the issue can't be resolved by clearing away outside debris, checking your thermostat, or changing the filter.Back to blog
