Signs You Need Repair Work on You A/C
Air Conditioning Thermostat:
It’s the heart of all air conditioning systems and one of the most common reasons for air conditioning problems. A programmable thermostat will save you money on your energy bills every month and will extend the life of your air conditioning system because you can select only the areas of your home you want to cool. You can stop cooling rooms for now on that you’re not using. If you want to convert to a programmable thermostat, call us today.
Air conditioner blowing warm air:
Your air conditioners compressor may be dirty. The compressor is outside your home, so carefully check to see if it’s clogged with debris or leaves. Or, you could have a refrigerant leak and you’ll need to call for service to re-charge the unit and find the leak.
Air conditioner won’t come on:
Once again check the thermostat and then check the power to make sure the circuit breaker is not tripped. There is also a metal box on the wall outside; make sure this is not in the off position. If those are all working and you’re A/C still won’t come on, you’ll need to call for.
Weak air flow from ducts:
This could be a dirty A/C filter that’s causing the air conditioners compressor to freeze up, or a refrigerant leak, so you need to check the level of the refrigerant in the A/C system. This is when it’s time to call us and let us check this for you.
Air conditioner filter:
We recommend you change your air conditioning filter once a month. The A/C filter is located in the air handler inside your home and there will be instructions on the air conditioner for changing the filter; look on the side of the old A/C filter when you remove it and make sure to note the thickness of the filter as well as the length and width if you need to buy new filters. If you need help with changing your filter, call us.
Air conditioner making noise:
There are many reasons for noisy air conditioners and the motor in the air handler on your air conditioner is one of the common causes as well as A/C fan blades that are bent; old ductwork in your home can become noisy because it can become soft over time and move around. Call us and we’ll check it out for you.
Water on floor around air conditioner:
Air conditioners create water or condensation in the process of cooling your house and there are pans under the air conditioning unit and they can rust and develop leaks, or the air conditioning PVC pipes can develop leaks at the joints. If you find ice in the pan under your air conditioner this is another sign that the filter is dirty or you’re low on refrigerant. In all cases you should call us and let us confirm this for you.
Noise from air ducts:
Air conditioning ducts contain metal so they can make noise and if you’re hearing popping sounds this is thermal expansion in the metal ducts and the most common sound is air escaping from leaks in ducts. If you can locate these you can fix them with duct tape but all the above-mentioned repairs are hot dirty work especially during the summer so you may want to give us a call.
Mold in air conditioning system:
We’re seeing a lot of mold right now on fan blades and on the inside of the air handler and this will move through your home in the air conditioning ducts so we’ll carefully check for mold when we’re inspecting your air conditioning system. Our maintenance programs can keep this from ever occurring again. Call us, we’ll explain how.
Which Air Conditioning System do you need?
Central air conditioning:
Central Air conditioning is used most often in our area and they circulate cool air through ductwork installed in ceilings and walls in your home. Ducts or registers which are the openings you see covered by grills, in your homes floors, walls or ceilings carry cooled air from the air conditioner to the rooms in your home, and air is returned to the air conditioner to be re-cooled by way of return ducts and registers.
Split system air conditioning:
This air conditioning system uses a condenser and compressor located outside your house usually alongside the garage and an evaporator or cooling coil and the fan inside your house usually in its own closet that may be part of your furnace or heat pump. If you’re adding an air conditioner to your home, this is the most cost effective air conditioning system.
Packaged central air conditioning:
Used on commercial buildings and apartments places the air conditioning evaporator, condenser, and compressor in a single enclosure on the roof of the building. These central air conditioners can use electric heating coils or a natural gas furnace which will eliminate the need for a separate furnace inside your home or building.
Ductless air conditioning:
Doesn’t require ductwork, and they’re easy to install in your home. They use wall or ceiling mounted blowers to air condition the rooms in your home. They’re getting popular in homes with small spaces and homes that don’t have ducts. Ductless Air Conditioning has two parts, a cooling component located inside your house, and an air compressor on the outside of your house, and they’re both connected to condensation drains, suction tubing, refrigerant lines, and power.
Heat pump are a heating and a cooling system with an a unit inside your home which is the air handler and a compressor outside your home that circulates the refrigerant that releases heat as it travels between the two units. Heat pumps are more effective in warmer climates so they are usually used as a supplemental heating source. In many cases, a forced air furnace will still be needed during the colder months. If your air conditioning system uses a Heat Pump we can help. We install and repair all major brands.
