Seeing, Hearing, Smelling, and Experiencing an AC Problem: Dalton’s Tips

June 10th, 2024

Air conditioner issues come in all shapes and forms. For instance, your neighbor might complain about a very specific AC issue that they’re experiencing when you see them for the Fourth of July this year. But it’s actually pretty rare that you experience the same problem with the same source as them. AC units are very different depending on their size, the home they’re installed in, and even the preferences of the owner.

That’s why we think that customers need to be prepared to experience some unique things, like strange noises or foul odors, which can be a sign of a problem on its own. And, if you have the tools to detect these issues by yourself, you can also call our team for AC repair in Cedar Rapids, so the issue can get resolved quickly.
