Air Conditioning Repair Troubleshooting Tip
Have you changed your system’s air filter lately? If it’s dirty, it could be blocking airflow and negatively affecting system performance!
Do I Need to Schedule AC Repair?
While air conditioners are hardy systems, many things can go wrong with such complicated machines. Here are some of the top reasons to schedule AC repair:
- No power: If the air conditioner doesn’t turn on, make sure it’s receiving power (in other words, no circuit breakers are tripped) and that the thermostat is set to “cool.” If this basic troubleshooting doesn’t work, call ABC.
- Lukewarm air: Set the thermostat to “auto,” not “on.” If the air coming from supply registers still feels warm, the compressor may have failed or the refrigerant may be low due to a leak.
- Poor airflow: Try changing the filter. If that doesn’t improve airflow, let us inspect your system and fix whatever’s wrong. You may need duct cleaning services to increase airflow.
- Strange noises or smells: From squealing or grating sounds to pungent or musty odors, don’t ignore these signs that something’s wrong with your air conditioner.
We understand that air conditioner breakdowns don’t always happen on weekdays between 9 and 5. That’s why we offer 24-hour emergency AC repair services in Chicago, including weekends and holidays.
AC Repair FAQs
How Much Does AC Repair Cost?
The cost of AC repair depends on several factors, including the age of your system, the severity of the problem, whether parts need to be replaced (and which parts), and more. The best way to know for sure is to call a professional heating and air conditioning contractor to diagnose your issue.
How Do I Reset My AC Unit?
Many AC units have a red reset button that will reset your air conditioner if you hold it for three seconds and release, then repeat. Many systems will make three beeping sounds that indicate the reset was successful. To be sure this is how your unit works, consult your AC instruction manual.
If your unit does not have a reset button, you can reset it manually by shutting off the power supply on your AC unit and in your electrical panel, unplugging the system, and waiting a few minutes. You can then plug your system back in and turn on the power supply. After resetting your unit, make sure your thermostat is set to “cool.”
Can an Air Conditioner Condenser Be Repaired?
There are many parts of an air conditioning condenser unit, many of which can be repaired if they break. Parts include the compressor, condenser coil, capacitor, and contactor. Whether it is cost-efficient to repair or replace these parts versus getting a new system depends on the age and condition of your unit. Consult a heating and cooling professional for an expert opinion.
