Alton AC Repair
Available For Repairs & Emergency Service
Even a minor issue with your cooling system can add up to an expensive and disruptive problem if not handled promptly. A small concern, such as a strange noise or failure to keep temperature, could be a sign of impending failure or could get worse over time.
Common Signs That Your AC Needs Repairs
Knowing when to call an experienced technician is important – not only is catching the problem early better for the long-term function of your AC, it's better for your wallet. Some key signs to keep a lookout for include:
- Warm air: The first thing you should do if you notice warm air coming from your AC is to check your thermostat. If it's set to cooling mode and set lower than your home's current temperature, then there's likely an issue with your AC.
- Lack of air flow: This is a common sign that there's either a blockage in your home's ductwork or an issue with your air conditioner, whether that's a clogged air filter or broken motor.
- Leaking water: While your AC will likely gather condensation on the part that's outside, it should never drip or leak inside your home. This could be a refrigerant leak, a potentially serious hazard for you and your whole family.
- Strange/bad smells: This is most common the first time you turn on your AC in the spring or summer. This is typically a straightforward fix, and our team can clear out any microbial growths, mold, or whatever else is causing the smell.
- Strange noises: If you ever notice your AC making strange noises like buzzing, banging, rattling, etc., turn it off immediately and give us a call. There's a good chance that some component has either broken or come loose, and needs to be repaired before it gets worse.

Air Conditioner Problems
Your AC system relies on a complex system of pressurized refrigerant and coils that collect heat indoors and release it outdoors. Fans help air to reach the coils and distribute cooled air through your home. If your air conditioner is experiencing problems, any component of the system may be affected.
Our Alton air conditioning repair technicians are trained to spot these issues and more:
Mechanical failure of condenser fan or air handling unit parts
Compressor problems, which prevents indoor heat from being transferred outdoors
Expansion valve issues, which keep refrigerant from cooling before entering your home
Thermostat failure, preventing you from adjusting temperature
Through the dedicated efforts of our team of highly trained professionals, your money is invested in long-term satisfaction rather than simply spent. We take the time to do every job right, to your specifications, and for maximum benefit.
Benefits of Regular AC Maintenance
To prevent problems before they start, we recommend scheduling seasonal maintenance. This allows us to ensure your AC system is in tip-top shape before the summer heat arrives. Not only will this regular service catch ay potential problems before they become expensive system failures, it will also keep your air conditioner running longer, potentially delaying the need for a replacement by years.
However, if you choose not to schedule seasonal maintenance, it’s still possible to catch small problems before they become major inconveniences. Pay attention to how your air conditioner runs. If it starts making strange noises or begins taking longer than usual to cool your home, give us a call. You may just save yourself the cost of a bigger repair down the road.
