Signs you may need an AC Replacement Soon Your air conditioner may give you some "warning signs" that it's struggling to keep working. Consider contacting an HVAC technician about a pre-emptive air conditioner replacement if: Your AC system is not cooling your home. You are frequently scheduling repairs. Your cooling bills keep rising. Cooled air coming from your vents is weaker. Your AC unit is always running. The HVAC system is making funny noises. How do you figure out if you should consider an AC repair or an air conditioner replacement? If you're concerned, the Dallas Guide to Air Conditioner Replacement is a great place to start. Calgary AC Repair Troubleshooting Checklist What to do before calling A1 Chesney Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an AC Repair Review your breaker box for a tripped breaker. If the breaker is flipped, try resetting it. It's worth flipping it off and on again even if it doesn't look like it has tripped. Some breakers will trip but the switch won't move much, making it appear as though there is a separate problem. Older homes might have fuse boxes, in which case you're looking for a blown fuse. Check your thermostat. You want to ensure that there are working batteries in it, it's on and that it's set to cool. There is no need call for an AC repair if a couple double AA batteries fix the situation. Listen for strange noises coming from your air conditioning system. If you notice clicking, call A1 Chesney Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning right away. Take a look to see if ice is present. If there is ice on your AC unit in a Calgary 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 are in danger of damaging critical components of your air conditioning system. Change out your filter! We all disregard the little chores from time to time. Replacing the air conditioning system's filter is an easy one to forget. Blocked air flow from an excessively dirty filter can severely reduce your system's efficiency and lead to extra wear on components, like the blower motor. Examine your air vents. Your air conditioning system has to breathe, which means maintaining air flow. If you have blocked air flow from your supply and return vents, it's probable you will experience an AC repair during Calgary heatwaves in the near future. Can you Repair an AC Coil Leak? We sure can. A leaking evaporator coil can be easy to spot, but expensive to replace. It's because of air conditioner repairs like this that we suggest an AC maintenance plan. Preventative maintenance and consistent tune-ups can help to reduce the chance of more costly repairs down the road. If it appears that the leak cannot be sealed and repaired, our HVAC technicians can 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 going to replace it, not repair it. The compressor in an air conditioner is a key component and the part itself is one of the pricier pieces of the system. If you have an old unit and the compressor is finished, you might want to replace the unit. There are three types of AC compressors: single stage compressors, two-stage compressors and variable-speed compressors. The single stage compressors can only function at one level, which means it will run full force as long as it’s on. The two stage compressors have two different levels, so it can run a little lower on days that are cooler, which supports efficiency. The most efficient selection is the variable capacity compressor which has the ability to constantly adjust to meet the chosen temperature of the home.

You can reach us at 587-315-5271 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 challenges as time goes on. Whether it ends with air conditioner service calls or you needing a new air conditioning system, lack of maintenance, can be detrimental to the efficiency and operation of your system. 2 AC Component Failure When your air conditioner isn’t running efficiently, the compressor and fan controls may wear out, or several other important components may be impacted. When your system cycles on and off a lot there is preventable stress placed on these internal parts, resulting in improper operation or premature failure. 3 Thermostat Problems From a dead battery to a thermostat sensor that isn’t calibrated properly, there are a host of thermostat problems that could occur. If it has been a while since you last replaced your thermostat batteries, it could be time to do so in order to escape 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. Call one of our friendly service technicians if you think something is wrong with your pump.

Mini-split AC units are good selections 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 reach. A1 Chesney Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning has the experts who can repair, replace, and install ductless mini-split air conditioning systems of any make and model. In the Calgary metro, we have several newer homes and more are built every day. Sometimes a newer home could still have heating and cooling problems for specific rooms. We can install a zoning system to help ease any problem areas in your home that experience hot and cold spots. Some customers decide to use a mini-split system for this problem as well. While we find these solutions are reliable, it does happen sometimes that a mini-split system wears out and demands repairs just like a central air conditioning system.
