While new models come out every year that boast better efficiency and delivery than previous years, it’s not feasible to get a new unit every time your A/C decides to take a break. Our trained specialists know what to look for to quickly fix your unit.
Refrigerant leaks should only be addressed by a licensed technician. Add more refrigerant yourself usually won’t fix the issue. It will continue to leak if the root problem is not addressed. Another thing to keep in mind is that each model has their own charge recommendations. That means if you undercharge or overcharge your unit, it will not operate efficiently and you’ll be wasting extra money.
Corrosion Can Cause Early Failure
The wires and terminals that transport power throughout your unit will wear down over time. Scheduling an annual checkup can help delay this inevitability. With a checkup, our professionals will clean your unit which will help it run smoother. This leads to less wear and tear and the moving parts as well as the wires and terminals.
High winds and hail can dislodge wires and terminals if hit at the right angle. This can also lead to loss of performance with your unit. If you have a bad storm or high winds, make sure to check your air conditioner afterward. If you detect something is wrong but can’t find the source, we can stop by and inspect your unit for damage.
Humidity Strikes Again
If it is overly humid outside, your unit might have troubles draining properly. Check the condensate drain to make sure it isn’t clogged and preventing your unit from draining properly. This isn’t something that needs to be checked often, but if your unit seems louder than normal, a quick look at the condensate drain can give you an idea if it is clogged.

What Happens When My A/C Doesn’t Cool My Home Evenly?
Before looking at the unit itself, there a few things you can check out throughout the house that may be causing the problem. In general, south-facing windows are warmer than other areas. If you’re experiencing excessive warmth in these rooms, look for blackout curtains to install. These not only block out light, but heat as well which will drastically cut down your cooling costs.
Another offender is clogged and closed vents. If areas of your home are warmer, check the vents. Vents can often get closed by one family member and it forgotten about when it gets too warm. Pets are also notorious for clogging vents. For pets that shed a lot, excess hair tends to get sucked into the ventilation system. In this case, regularly changing the air filter on your HVAC system can greatly reduce the amount of hair buildup. If you look inside your vents, you can typically see a buildup of pet hair. If you are able to, remove the vent cover and remove the pet hair you can see. This will lead to less in the ventilation system which will lead to a lower chance of a clog.
Noisy A/C Units Need A Little TLC
Like most machines with moving parts, these wear down over time. Parts shake loose, belts wear out, and lubrication wears off. This is all normal wear and tear. If your unit seems to be excessively loud and you hear and lot of clacking and banging, a quick tune up should be in store. Our HVAC experts have been trained extensively on what to listen for and can spot a problem quickly.
