In the summertime, we handle many different types of air conditioning repairs. Air conditioners work overtime in the summers to keep up with the Virginia heat, which can result in breakdowns and repairs. If your air conditioner is overworked or under-serviced, you may experience one of the common AC repairs we detail in this blog.
At Quality Contracting, our expert technicians can guarantee a solution before they leave your home. Below we have listed 5 of the most common AC repairs we handle in Chesapeake and surrounding areas and probable causes for each.
There could be many reasons your air conditioner is blowing warm air, such as low refrigerant. If your refrigerant is low, there is likely a leak and not enough refrigerant leak to produce cool air. Your air conditioner will continue to run and blow warm air, because it is trying to reach the thermostat setting. A refrigerant leak is an important repair and should not be ignored. Not only will your energy bills rise until the problem is fixed, but it can lead to further AC damages. Refrigerant is a toxic substance that can pose a threat to your health, so it is best to be handled by a professional.
It is normal for your air conditioner to run more often in the summer due to the high temperatures. Although, if your air conditioner is running constantly you have an air conditioning problem on your hands. There could be many sources of why your air conditioner will not shut off, and we recommend starting with your air filter. Ensure your air filter is clear and free of debris. A clogged air filter can result in your air conditioner running longer to successfully deliver cool air, but the air can not pass through. Let us help identify the cause of your air conditioner running constantly
Like other air conditioning repairs, there can be multiple causes. As simple as it sounds, your thermostat connection is a common reason your AC unit is not working and we recommend starting there. Ensure your thermostat is on and does not need new batteries. The settings should be flipped to cool and read your desired temperature. Try adjusting the temperature a few degrees lower and evaluate if your unit turns on. We promise, we have seen it happen!
The air conditioner repair needed for strange noises depends on the type of noise. Below are common noises we have heard and the repair to each.
If your air conditioner is leaking water, your drain line is probably clogged. Your air conditioner removes humidity from your home and the moisture exits through a drain line. Excess moisture can cause mold and mildew to grow and result in a clog. For best results, let our expert technicians help locate and unclog your drain line!
