Signs you may need an AC Replacement Soon Your air conditioner could give you some "warning signs" that it's thinking about retiring. Consider asking about a pre-emptive air conditioner replacement if: Your air conditioning system is not cooling your home. You need frequent AC repairs. Your cooling bills keep rising. Cooled air coming from your vents is weaker. Your AC unit is consistently running. The HVAC system is making odd noises. How do you know if you should think about an AC repair or an air conditioner replacement? If you're concerned, the Dallas Guide to Air Conditioner Replacement is an ideal place to begin. Charleston AC Repair Troubleshooting Checklist What to do before reaching out to Pardee Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an AC Repair Take a look at your breaker box for a tripped breaker. If the breaker is flipped, you can try to reset it. It's worth flipping it off and on again even if it doesn't seem like it tripped. Some breakers will trip but the switch doesn’t move much, making it appear as though there is a different problem. Older homes may have fuse boxes, in which case you're searching for a blown fuse. Inspect your thermostat. You want to make sure that there are working batteries in it, it's operating and that it's set to cool. There is no need for an AC repair call if a couple double AA batteries are the solution. Listen for strange noises coming from your air conditioning system. If you notice clicking, call Pardee Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately. See if there is ice. If there is ice on your AC unit in a Charleston summer, you might have a refrigerant leak. Sometimes you’ll notice ice on the lines running 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 have the threat of damaging critical components of your air conditioning system. Change out your filter! We all disregard the little chores once in a while. Replacing the air conditioning system's filter is an easy one to forget. Blocked air flow from an excessively dirty filter can harshly reduce your system's efficiency and offer extra wear on components, like the blower motor. Evaluate your air vents. Your air conditioning system has to breathe, which means sustaining air flow. If you have blocked air flow from your supply and return vents, it's probable you will face an AC repair during Charleston heatwaves in the near future. Can you Repair an AC Coil Leak? Our experts can help with an AC coil leak. A leaking evaporator coil can be easily noticeable, but expensive to replace. It's because of air conditioner repairs like this that we recommend an AC maintenance plan. Preventative maintenance and consistent tune-ups can help to decrease the odds of more costly repairs down the road. Should it be determined that the leak cannot be sealed and repaired, our HVAC technicians have the capability to 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 looking to replace it, not repair it. The compressor in an air conditioner is a critical component and the part itself is one of the more costly 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 offer two different levels, so it can run a little lower on days that have milder temps, which supports efficiency. The most efficient choice is the variable capacity compressor which has the capability to constantly correct itself to meet the chosen temperature of the home. When the time comes to get help with your air conditioner, you can depend on the qualified technicians at Pardee Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. Give us a call at 843-410-6103 and we’ll be happy to answer your questions or arrange an appointment. AC Compressor Repair Cost: $1,350-$1,800 4 Things That End in AC Repair in Dallas 1 Lack of Air Conditioner Maintenance Letting your air conditioner run over long periods of time without being maintained is likely to cause problems as time elapses. Whether it ends with air conditioner service calls or means 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 working efficiently, the compressor and fan controls might wear out, or several other vital components may be impacted. When your system cycles on and off a lot there is unnecessary 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 correctly, there are a host of thermostat problems that could occur. If it has been a while since you last swapped out your thermostat batteries, it might be time to do so in order to avoid any problems with the settings you have in place. 4 Condensation in your Air Conditioner Your air conditioning unit will produce a large amount of condensation. Some air conditioners have an electric condensate pump with tubing that can be broken or clogged with algae or ice. Contact one of our friendly service technicians if you think something isn’t right with your pump.

Pardee Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is qualified to repair, replace, and install ductless mini-split air conditioning systems of any make and model. In the Charleston community, we have many newer homes and more are going up every day. Sometimes a newer home could still have heating and cooling issues for specific rooms.
