Signs You May Need AC Repair in McLean

Air conditioning systems will almost always let you know when something has gone wrong. When you notice any of these signs or anything else out of the norm with your system, call a professional HVAC technician from John Nugent & Sons right away:

  • Weak or ineffective cooling. If you’re just not getting the standard of comfort you’re accustomed to, odds are something in your system has gone wrong. Weak cooling is often related to general wear and tear, component failure, or even a possible clog, all of which are best handled by our maintenance experts. We will diagnose your issue and resolve it as soon as possible.
  • Reduced energy efficiency. Do your cooling bills look a little (or a lot) higher than they have in the past? Reduced efficiency is a very common issue and one we handle on a routine basis. Don’t let massive cooling costs get you down—call for AC repair in McLean from John Nugent & Sons!
  • Odd sounds. The background noise your system creates should be exactly that—a barely noticeable whisper. If you notice clanking, banging, wheezing, or squealing coming from your system, contact an AC repair professional right away. This signal can be a precursor to much larger problems, and without a quick repair, you could be looking at AC replacement.
  • Strange odors. Thick, musty odors aren’t uncommon if you’ve just kicked your system on for the start of the cooling season. But if the smell persists, call on an expert before dust begins to choke your system out!
  • Undue moisture or leaking. No amount of standing liquid should ever be on or around your system. Excess moisture could indicate a refrigerant leak or problems with the condensate drain. Either way, it presents a fire and electrical hazard and should be handled immediately!

If you’ve noticed any of these telltale warning signs of AC problems, it’s time to contact a professional. You never want to be caught without air conditioning during a Northern Virginia summer, and with John Nugent & Sons, you don’t have to be.

AC Repair Frequently Asked Questions

Why is my AC blowing warm air?

We expect a lot from our air conditioning systems here in Northern Virginia. We expect them to provide cool, high-quality air—and we expect them to be able to keep up with our demands as the season goes on. But one thing we don’t expect is for the system to begin blowing warm or hot air. Operator error is the number one cause, but refrigerant leaks, a clogged outdoor unit, or poor electrical connections could also be to blame.

Why is my air conditioner freezing?

Even if you change the filters and schedule regular AC maintenance like you’re supposed to, there is still a chance your air conditioner will freeze up. There are three main reasons an air conditioner can freeze up:

  • Lack of airflow
  • Refrigerant leaks
  • Outdoor temperature

How can I detect AC refrigerant leaks?

One of the most common AC problems your unit may encounter is a refrigerant leak. Refrigerant leaks are very common, and they can wreak havoc on your expensive AC system if they go undetected. Some methods to test for freon leaks are UV light, fluorescent dye, and pressure tests.

Should I repair or replace my air conditioner?

Your impulse may be to seek repair, which is the course of action pretty much everyone would prefer at first glance.
