Air Conditioning Repair & Maintenance

If your thermostat is set to 65 degrees and your home or business just won't cool down, it might be time to seek the services of an air conditioning repair company. A qualified air conditioning contractor can diagnose your heating and air conditioning problem and replace malfunctioning air conditioning parts.

First, however, you should assess whether you actually have a broken air conditioner . Before contacting an air conditioning equipment repair person, try the following steps:

  • Air conditioner filters are the cheapest and easiest fix for an air conditioning unit running at reduced capacity. In the simplest terms, clogged filters result in poor cooling powers. Replacing or cleaning your air conditioning filters regularly will allow air to flow unobstructed and eliminate potentially harmful dust and mold particles.

  • Clean your condenser . Rake all the leaves and debris away from your central air conditioning's condenser , which is located outdoors. Then dust the fins of the condenser with a brush or vacuum attachment.

  • Check your thermostat to make sure your air conditioner is set below room temperature. If this doesn't work, examine your fuse box for a tipped breaker or blown fuse.

  • Take a look at the ductwork or ducts connected to your air conditioner . Over time, ducts can clog, therefore preventing air from flowing freely throughout your home or business.

If none of these steps resolve your problem, consider calling an air conditioning heating repair technician. You may be able to describe your issue over the phone and receive advice, such as a reminder to change your air conditioner filter, or the technician will suggest a home or office visit to further assess your heating and air conditioning repair. Air conditioning repair is especially important in tropical climates like Tampa , Orlando , Miami , and Los Angeles to keep units well-maintained and running trouble-free.

In order to select the best air conditioning repair for your needs, first consult your air conditioner 's manual for recommended providers and warranty information. Occasionally, your issue can be solved with an annual maintenance check, or quick replacement of worn air conditioning parts . Often, your air conditioning system's problem can be solved by simply changing your air conditioner filter. Without proper maintenance, performance of your air conditioning system will decline and energy costs will increase.

After choosing an air conditioning refrigeration technician, make sure they complete the following tasks:

  • Check for correct amount of refrigerant ;
  • Test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector;
  • Capture any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of illegally releasing it to the atmosphere;
  • Check for and seal duct leakage in central systems;
  • Measure air flow through the evaporator coil ;
  • Verify the correct electric control sequence and make sure that the heating system and cooling system cannot operate simultaneously;
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections, and apply a non-conductive coating if necessary;
  • Oil motors and check belts for tightness and wear; and
  • Check the accuracy of the thermostat .
With proper maintenance, your air conditioning system should provide years of cool and clean air to your home or business.
