If You Notice These Things You Need AC Repair Services Right Away


Your air conditioner is designed and built to be quieter than ever.  If you notice weird noises, odors, temperature fluctuations or, even worse, high costs to simply keep you comfortable, call us.  Your air conditioner is an important, if not vital, part of your home here on the Florida Emerald Coast that includes Pensacola, Fort Walton Beach and Panama City. 

If you notice any of the following coming from your air conditioner, don’t hesitate to call us for a consultation:

  • Banging, clanking, buzzing, squealing, screaming! These kinds of noises can be a definite sign that something is loose or broken, and needs repair.  Consider needing a new fan, blades, electrical parts.  In other words, something is out of balance.  A high pitch screaming sound can mean a refrigerant leak and needs immediate attention for your unit’s and your safety.  A rattling sound can be that your air conditioner is wearing down, or that it’s a simple fix such as removing leaves or twigs that have accumulated inside over time.
  • Odors like smelly socks, rotten eggs, gun powder, fumes. The mold and mildew that is so prevalent in Pensacola, Fort Walton Beach and Panama City can wreak havoc on the performance and life of your air conditioner.  “Smelly socks smell” indicate such a thing and can easily be remedied with a service and tune-up by us.  The smell of gun powder can reveal electrical issues.  Smells like fumes and rotten eggs can indicate dangerous fluid leaks or a natural gas leak that is an emergency and requires immediate attention by us.  Don’t delay in calling us for any smell coming from your air conditioner.
  • Holding a constant temperature. If your air conditioner is not staying at the set temperature for even a short period of time, it indicates that there is something not working properly.  Our air conditioner technician will not only inspect your entire unit, but ask relevant questions about your home’s insulation and how you use your electricity and air conditioner in order to optimize your air conditioner’s performance. 
  • Your air conditioning costs. Have your air conditioning monthly costs dramatically increased, but not your comfort during those hot and humid days when you need an air conditioner the most?  One of our air conditioner experts will visit your home and assess the situation from every angle, being age and use of the unit, how the environment is affecting it, how you are using the air conditioner for its maximum use and comfort, to name a few.  We also have helpful tips and guidelines to get the most from your air conditioner.

Here at Peaden, we have a staff of experts who are trained, reliable and professional.  It is our goal to keep your home safe and comfortable throughout the year.  Being aware of how your air conditioner is working — or not working — for you can save you money and inconvenience.  And by calling Peaden at the first signs of trouble, you can maintain the life and performance of your unit.
