Unlimited AC Repair Services
Let’s get the laundry list out of the way. Here are the most common AC repair needs we see each week. Remember, if you aren’t sure what’s acting up, we will come to you, diagnose the problem, and make the repair the same day:
- Clogged or dirty air filter
- Dirty or imbalanced thermostat
- Leaking refrigerant (also called Freon)
- Clogged drain line
- Faulty wiring
- Corroded, dirty, or frozen coils
- Worn contactors
Let’s look at each of these problems in a little more detail.
Air Filters: The AC equivalent to “did you turn it off and back on?”
As homeowners, the easiest DIY AC maintenance check we can and should perform is on our air filters. Depending on the specifications of our HVAC systems, we should mark our calendars to check our AC air filters every month or three months.
When checking the air filter, the experts at Home Comfort USA evaluate the cleanliness of the filter. An insider secret is to simply shine a flashlight through the filter. If little to no light is getting through, you can be confident the filter needs to be cleaned (if reusable) or replaced.
Thermostat: The Master Controller
The last thought of the maintenance check to consider lies within the thermostat. There is a myriad of problems that can happen with the AC unit inside that little rectangle on your wall. From the embarrassing mistakes of “is it on the right setting?” to the behind the scenes problems of an imbalanced thermostat or dust impacting the internal readings, the AC thermostat can be a head-scratcher to diagnose.
Home Comfort USA technicians have come across every thermostat you could think of (digital and analog), and we can have yours checked over in no time flat.
AC Refrigerant Leaks: The Russian Roulette of AC Repairs
Have you ever wondered what makes the air from your HVAC system cool in the first place? The answer is simple: Freon. If you’re having issues with fluctuating temperatures, you are likely low on Freon. This is a dangerous sign that you might have a leak, which could be anywhere from a low-cost fix to needing to replace your entire AC unit.
When it comes to air conditioning repair services and regular maintenance checks, be sure to give Home Comfort USA a call, so Freon doesn’t become a word that triggers unpleasant AC memories.
Clogged Drain Lines: When “Not Ideal” Turns to “Disastrous” in a Matter of Hours
If we take a look at our AC units, we’ll notice a pan that collects water—better known as an AC drip pan. This is a perfectly normal thing to see only if the water is flowing easily out of the pan and into the drain lines.
If the water begins to rise and flow outside the drip pan, we have a huge problem on our hands. The first thing to do is to turn the air conditioner off. You can be confident thinking the drain lines are clogged and need immediate attention. This can be done DIY style, but it’s difficult to replace that peace of mind knowing an industry professional has ensured the fix has been made.
Faulty Wiring: DIY Gone Wrong
There are only so many questions we can ask about our potential new homes before we sign the papers and become homeowners. One of those missed items might be if the previous homeowner did a self-install on the air conditioning unit. Although admirable, we don’t think so when the AC unit crashes in the middle of summer due to faulty wiring.
When Home Comfort USA technicians come to perform air conditioning repair services at your home, we will be able to quickly identify any issues with the wiring of your AC unit. Some common signs of such an issue is your circuit breaker constantly tripping or low airflow produced from your air conditioner.
Evaporator and Condenser Coils: The Hot and Cold of Air Conditioning
Did you know hot air inside our homes is being absorbed by our air conditioners? The evaporator coils—often made of copper—absorb the heat from inside our homes. The coolant runs through the coils and the heat turns it into a gas, which is carried outside to the condenser coils. The gas is compressed back into a liquid (hence the term condenser coil) and the heat it was carrying from inside the home is released to the outside.
When either of these coils needs repairs, Home Comfort USA has your back. This is one of those areas to leave for the technicians.
Yearly Air Conditioning Maintenance Check
There is nothing that can replace the amazing feeling of walking into a well air-conditioned home during the summer months. On the flip side, there is nothing worse than when the air conditioner decides to call it quits in the middle of July the day before family or friends are supposed to visit.
Rather than hoping your AC unit is ready for the dog days of summer, why not schedule a routine maintenance check to put your mind at rest?
Scheduling regular maintenance for your HVAC system will save you from exponentially costlier repairs in the future and extend the life of your unit.
Our expert technicians will go through our 32 Point AC Tune-Up and Cleaning, which includes:
- Heater safety check
- 1” high-efficiency filter replacement
- Air distribution check
- Thermostat: Test, calibrate, and level
- Condenser Coil: visual inspection
