Signs you might need an AC Replacement Soon Your air conditioner might give you some "warning signs" that it's near the end of its life. Consider reaching out to experts about a pre-emptive air conditioner replacement if: Your air conditioning system is not cooling your home. You need frequent AC repairs. Your cooling bills have been increasing. Cooled air coming from your vents is losing strength. Your AC unit is consistently running. The HVAC system is making odd noises. How do you know if you should consider an AC repair or an air conditioner replacement? If you're worried, the Dallas Guide to Air Conditioner Replacement is a great place to read up. Charlotte AC Repair Troubleshooting Checklist What to do before contacting Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an AC Repair Take a look at your breaker box for a tripped breaker. If the breaker is flipped, you can try to reset it. You can flip it off and on again even if it doesn't appear to have tripped. Some breakers will trip but the switch doesn’t move much, making it appear as though there is a different problem. Older homes may have fuse boxes, in which case you're assessing for a blown fuse. Check your thermostat. You want to make sure that there are working batteries in it, it's operating and that it's set to cool. There is no need to bring in the experts if a couple double AA batteries are the solution. Listen for funny noises coming from your air conditioning system. If you hear clicking, call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning straightaway. See if there is ice. If ice is on your AC unit in a Charlotte summer, you might have a refrigerant leak. Sometimes there will be ice on the lines going from your condenser (the big air conditioning unit outside your home with a fan on top) into your house. Refrigerant leaks need to be repaired quickly, or you risk damaging critical components of your air conditioning system. Replace your filter! We all neglect the little chores sometimes. Replacing the air conditioning system's filter is an easy one to forget. Blocked air flow from a very dirty filter can harshly reduce your system's efficiency and lead to extra wear on components, like the blower motor. Evaluate your air vents. Your air conditioning system needs to breathe, which means sustaining air flow. If you have blocked air flow from your supply and return vents, it's probable you will experience an AC repair during Charlotte heatwaves down the road. Can you Repair an AC Coil Leak? You bet. A leaking evaporator coil can be easy to spot, but pricey to replace. It's because of air conditioner repairs like this that we recommend an AC maintenance plan. Preventative maintenance and ongoing tune-ups can help to decrease the odds of more costly repairs down the road. In the event that the leak cannot be sealed and repaired, our HVAC technicians have the capability to replace the faulty component. AC Coil Repair Cost: $400-$1,200 Can you Repair the AC Compressor? Typically if the compressor is shot, you're looking to replace it, not repair it. The compressor in an air conditioner is a critical component and the part itself is one of the costlier pieces of the system. If you have an old unit and the compressor is gone, you may want to replace the unit. There are three styles of AC compressors: single stage compressors, two-stage compressors and variable-speed compressors. The single stage compressors can only operate at one level, which means it will run full force as long as it’s on. The two stage compressors provide two different levels, so it can run a little lower on days that have milder temps, which supports efficiency. The most efficient choice is the variable capacity compressor which has the capability to constantly correct itself to meet the preferred temperature of the home. When the time happens to get help with your air conditioner, you can count on the qualified professionals at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. Give us a call at 704-464-4307 and we’ll be happy to answer your questions or set up an appointment. AC Compressor Repair Cost: $1,350-$1,800 4 Things That Result in AC Repair in Dallas 1 Lack of Air Conditioner Maintenance Letting your air conditioner work over lengthy periods of time without being maintained is likely to cause more headaches as time goes on. Whether it results in air conditioner service calls or you needing a new air conditioning system, lack of maintenance, negatively impacts the efficiency and operation of your system. 2 AC Component Failure When your air conditioner isn’t working efficiently, the compressor and fan controls could wear out, or several other significant components may be impacted. When your system cycles on and off a lot there is unnecessary stress placed on these internal parts, causing improper operation or premature failure. 3 Thermostat Problems From a dead battery to a thermostat sensor that isn’t calibrated appropriately, there are a host of thermostat problems that could happen. If it has been a while since you last switched your thermostat batteries, it could be time to do so in order to avoid any problems with the settings you chose. 4 Condensation in your Air Conditioner Your air conditioning unit will create a large amount of condensation. Some air conditioners have an electric condensate pump with tubing that can be impaired or clogged with algae or ice. Reach out to one of our friendly service technicians if you suspect something isn’t right with your pump. What you can do to get your AC Repair Faster Everyone wants relief quickly, especially in a sweltering Charlotte heatwave.

This will help us take a look anything that could be the source of a catastrophic failure during the hotter months. Sign up for one of Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning's Service Plans. Not only do you have the additional benefit of getting regular tune-ups for your air conditioner, which could prevent the need for an AC repair entirely. If something does break, you’re already top of mind. Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioning Repair If it cools, we can find a solution. Mini-split AC units are good options for historic homes that do not have room for ductwork, hard to heat and cool spaces like garages or new additions where the AC system does not currently extend. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can repair, replace, and install ductless mini-split air conditioning systems of any make and model. In the Charlotte community, we have several newer homes and more are being constructed every day. Occasionally a newer home may still have heating and cooling challenges for specific rooms. We can install a zoning system to help mitigate any problem areas in your home that contain hot and cold spots. Some customers prefer to use a mini-split system for this purpose as well. While we find these solutions are reliable, it does happen sometimes that a mini-split system wears out and requires repairs just like a central air conditioning system.
