Do You Need AC Repair?
It’s a sweltering Southern California day and you’re enjoying a weekend day at home. You start to notice that your house is hot. You feel sweaty, overheated, and uncomfortable. Your thoughts turn to the worst: “Is the air conditioner broken?”
Let’s face it: If your home is warmer than normal, your air conditioner might be broken. But, it could also be something else. Your AC might be too small or too inefficient for your home. It might just need a slight tune-up or a new filter. Maybe, your air conditioning is fine, but your windows and doors leak hot air back into your home. There are hundreds of reasons your air conditioner might not perform at its best. It’s our job to find out why and fix it.
How do you know it’s time to bring our team in to diagnose the issue? Here are some common signs to watch for:
7 Signs You May Need an Air Conditioner Repair
Sounds. HVAC systems can bang, clank, and knock periodically. Sometimes, this is just the natural thermodynamics of pushing hot and cold air through controlled spaces. Things expand, and they contract. However, if your system is emitting prolonged or concerning noises, it’s time to call the pros.
Odors. Homeowners report odors that range from rotten egg and sulfur to antifreeze to dust. When your HVAC emits odors, that may be a signal that something isn’t right.
Spotty Cooling. If you find that your upstairs bedrooms trap heat and the laundry room is always freezing, it could be the impact of windows and sun, or might be your system is cooling your home unevenly. An expert will know.
Overheating. If your home isn’t getting cooler at all, no matter how far you turn your thermostat down, you likely need an AC Repair.
Cycling. If your system “cycles” or turns on and off repeatedly, you’re wasting energy (and money). It could be a sign that your air conditioner needs servicing.
Signs of Decline. If your system looks like it has been tampered with or infiltrated by pests, or if leaves and foliage are burying your condenser, clear it away and call a technician. Your AC is likely overdue for a tune-up.
System Failure. If your system won’t power on at all or doesn’t respond to your thermostat changes, it’s important to have it inspected.
If any of these issues sound familiar to you, call us. We can answer questions and determine whether you need our help!
Air Conditioner Servicing: Know Your Options
Once we identify that your air conditioner needs a repair, we’ll recommend fixes and provide a quote for the service. Your air conditioner will be back to its usual good health in no time. However, there are several other overlapping services and products that might improve the performance of your air conditioner and your entire home comfort system:
Air Quality & Flow
Your AC repair might not require our attention to the air conditioner’s components themselves. Instead, we may recommend a more effective filter or suggest our Aeroseal services to improve air cleanliness and flow. Clean air is better for your lungs, but it is also better for your system.
Our team thinks about the entire picture when we visit your home. We put a major focus on energy efficiency to help you save money and to advocate for the environment. Energy Efficiency also impacts the efficient operation of your system. We look for leaks, size your system appropriately, and make every effort to help you waste less and get more from your system.
AC Replacement Evaluation
If your system is 10+ years old, or if you’ve had multiple successive AC repairs, it might be time to consider a replacement. This is especially true if your AC runs on R22 refrigerant – the production of which has been phased out as of January 1, 2020. Our team can help you assess your options and set a timeline for system replacement.
Ongoing AC maintenance
One of the best ways to prevent future AC repair surprises is to shop our selection of maintenance plan subscriptions. This service allows you to “set it and forget it” with HVAC system maintenance while ensuring that your system continues to perform for you. Early detection of issues can help prevent costly repairs. And, maintenance can prolong the life of your AC unit – meaning you won’t have to replace your unit as soon.
