Say hello to summertime! With the presence of the blaring heat comes the steady hum of your AC unit. For homes and businesses alike, maintaining a cool, comfortable indoor temperature is a must. But with the steady use of your HVAC come repairs that are common this time of year. Our AC company encounters these our AC repairs often during heat waves and periods of extended HVAC use. Our team is dedicated to providing customers with honest, trustworthy HVAC services. To schedule AC repair services, contact us.
1. Ductwork Repair
The intricate system of air ducts is responsible for moving conditioned air throughout the home or business. Any ductwork that is in poor condition allows for a significant amount of air loss, and low air flow can be an indicator of a clogged or leaking duct. Ductwork repair begins with a thorough testing of the air ducts — any holes, poor insulation or restrictions will be identified. If ducts are clogged or restricted (due to dust, pet dander, etc.) they will be cleaned to produce improved air flow and overall indoor air quality. Should a leak or hole in the duct be located, our experts will seal the openings.
2. Thermostat Repair
An equally recurring repair is a thermostat replacement. Thermostats communicate with the AC unit to regulate indoor temperatures. Make sure the thermostat is not in the fan-only mode and adjust the temperature to a comfortable setting. If the thermostat settings are correct, but the AC won't kick on, a new thermostat might be necessary.
3. Refrigerant Leak
Refrigerant is a vital component to your unit. When a leak is present, the refrigerant cannot be absorbed, transformed and dispersed throughout the building, which means no cool air! A refrigerant leak will be indicated by the following:
- No cooling output
- Ice on the evaporator coils
- Water around the AC unit
- Hissing sounds coming from the AC unit
- AC unit is running short cycles
If a leak is suspected, our experts will work to detect and repair the leak to get the air conditioner functioning properly as soon as possible.
4. Condenser Repair
The AC condenser works to convert refrigerant into liquid. The condenser contains many moving parts, so when an issue occurs, it can be complex. A condenser houses the following mechanisms:
- Condenser oil
- Circuit board
The condenser can be negatively impacted by brittle tubing, weak seals, dirty components, weak run capacitor, blockage, damaged coils, bad relay switches and a broken control board. Any of these components can fail together or separately, depending on the issue(s) it may be possible to replace only a few parts of a new condenser may be necessary.
