Professional AC Repair Services

Life can be unbearable if an air conditioner breaks down in a hot climate environment. There are many parts to an air conditioning unit and there are many things that could have gone wrong and a professional can help quickly solve that problem.

Usually, trained maintenance experts can visit your household on the same day that the device malfunctioned. A trained professional can fix your device in no time which beats suffering through several days/weeks without your AC.

When should you call an AC repair professional?

If your AC unit is not turning on or it is not giving an optimal performance it needs to be checked by a professional. If the unit is near its end of life and the professional concludes it is beyond repair, they can assist you in looking for a new unit. Here are a few indications that it’s time to call an expert if you’re having issues and the unit is less than 10 years old.

Low air flow from vents

If you don’t feel much cool air coming from the vents even though your air conditioner is running, there could be a problem with the ducts or with the compressor. You’re paying for the electricity to run the AC, but not getting the benefit of a comfortable home. However, a qualified professional can solve this problem with a quick fix.

Inconsistent temperatures throughout the home

When you want to cool down your home, but a few rooms just won’t cool off, it’s a bit frustrating. An upper floor will typically be a few degrees warmer than your ground floor because heat rises, but radically different temperatures readings between rooms can be a red flag that there may be a problem. Some of the possible culprits in this are filters, vents, and ducts.

Notice bad smells or loud noises when unit is on

When you suddenly start to sniff a bad odor from the vents whenever your unit is powered on then this means that there is an issue there. That usually means a wire has burned or the ductwork contains mold. Both of these scenarios require a service call to a professional technician. In addition, if you hear noises such as grinding or scratching coming from the unit, you should be concerned enough to call a professional.

Unit is leaking

The liquid that leaks from the unit could be refrigerant or water. Of course, it doesn’t matter what type of liquid is seeping out. It’s an issue that needs to be addressed by a professional. If the fluid turns out to be water, usually the AC professional will replace the condensation tubes. If the liquid is indeed refrigerant, however, they will need to replace the compromised lines completely.

Thermostat isn’t working

The problem may not be with your air conditioner itself but rather with the switch that turns it on and off. If the problem is found to be a malfunctioning thermostat, it can easily be diagnosed and repaired by a trained professional. In addition, they can check wiring and recalibrate temperature readings to ensure that it’s effectively communicating with your unit.

Energy bills significantly higher

When you have a higher energy bill this can mean that something is not working right with your unit. When a bill seems higher than normal, even when everything looks normal, we recommend seeking help from a professional. This is usually an indication that the unit is being stressed more than it should be and needs servicing.

How can regular maintenance save you from repair?

Scheduling regular maintenance of your air conditioner will help keep it running well and extend its useful life. People usually only use their units for a couple months out of the whole year. That is why it could happen that the homeowner does not have a problem with it until it is turned on at the beginning of the hot season.

Regular maintenance is important in keeping an air conditioner in good working order, as a qualified technician can easily spot and correct minor issues before they become big problems. Air conditioning professionals recommend an annual maintenance visit at a minimum. Try to get your unit serviced before the summer begins so it will be operating efficiently throughout the season. This will prevent major breakdowns while saving you money on your energy bills and extending the useful life of your air conditioner.
