Signs Your Air Conditioner Needs Repair
Wouldn’t it be convenient to turn on your air conditioning during the hot summer months and have it work each and every time? Unfortunately, that’s not how the real world works where air conditioning repairs are a necessity. Generally, air conditioning repairs should be completed as soon as you notice an issue with your cooling system because the longer you wait, the more costly the issue can become. Here are a few signs you should look out for:
What’s that Noise?
If your air conditioner is making an odd noise that you’ve never heard before, it could mean that you need air conditioning repairs. For example, if your air conditioner starts to grind or whistle when running, be sure to immediately contact a professional a/c technician to evaluate the situation.
What’s that Smell?
Similar to a hearing an odd noise, smelling an odd smell is an indication that your air conditioning system needs repair. For example, a persistent burning smell means that something is wrong with your a/c. The smell of fuel is another sign that your air conditioner needs immediately repair. In either case, it’s crucial that you contact a professional a/c technician to evaluate the situation right away.
Why is it Still Running?
A cooling system that doesn’t cycle off when it should is a big problem. Just think about it. Continuously running your air conditioner wastes a ton of energy and puts unnecessary wear and tear on your system. In fact, it’s just as bad as short cycling, which occurs when your system turns on and off too frequently. If you are experiencing irregular cycling, like continuous cycling or short cycling, contact a professional a/c technicians to evaluate the situation and prevent damage to your air conditioner.
Types of Air Conditioning Systems We Repair
Central Air Conditioner Repair
Central air conditioners are designed to cool an entire house or business. Outside, a large unit, called a compressor operates the entire process. Indoors, a coil filled with refrigerant cools the air that then gets distributed through the house through ducts. With a central air conditioner, the same ducts are used with a furnace for forced warm-air heating. In many cases, the furnace fan is used to distribute cool air from the central air conditioner to the ducts.
If your unit isn’t cooling properly, common air conditioner problems that we can help you with include leaking refrigerant, sensor problems, thermostat issues, drainage problems, and dirty filters. If your unit isn’t turning on, we can help you fix the problem. Likely causes for a non-working unit include electric control failure or a broken thermostat. Lastly, if you’re experiencing limited airflow, we can help you with repairs on ductwork or filter.
Ductless Mini Split Air Conditioner Repair
Like traditional central air conditioners, mini-splits use an outside compressor and indoor handing units. However, the main difference between the two is that each room or zone can have its own air handler. Each of the indoor units is connected to the outside unit through a conduit that carries the power and refrigerant lines. The indoor units are usually mounted on the wall.
Common problems that occur with ductless systems relate to their indoor blowers, including clogged condensate pipes or dirty coils. Also, because ductless systems use heat pumps to cool your home or business, issues can originate there. Whatever your ductless mini split air conditioner issue, our air conditioning repair technicians can help.
Heat Pump Repair
Heat pumps can be best described as a two-way air conditioner. In the warm months, an air conditioner moves heat from inside a home or structure to the outdoors. Alternatively, in the cold months, the heat pump reverses this flow and, with the assistance of an electrical system, takes any available heat from the outdoors and releases it indoors. Cool air is then distributed through a forced-air system.
A common problem that our heating technicians encounter with heat pumps is refrigerant leaks, which can develop in a number of locations due to the system’s design. Another problem area with heat pumps can be the compressor. It’s components can wear out because it operates under a lot of pressure.
