Our 24-Hour Air Conditioner Repair
Air conditioner breakdowns can occur at any time, including after business hours, the beginning of the weekend, or during a holiday. Because summer temperatures in Montgomery, AL, are so unpredictable, you must get your air conditioner fixed as soon as possible when it breaks down. And while it’s tempting to try and fix the problem yourself, many times, DIY fixes do more harm than good. Here are a few situations that warrant a call to a professional AC contractor for help.
Unusual AC Noise
If your air conditioner makes noises you’ve not heard before, it’s obviously a sign that something is wrong, but is it an emergency? If you hear squealing or grinding, it usually means that a part is loose or damaged, and if you let it go too long, you risk damaging the entire system. It’s best to call for emergency repairs when you hear strange noises instead of letting them go.
Warm Air Coming From the Vents
When airflow is blocked, whether at the filter level or in the ducts, the result is weak air that blows hot instead of cold. As with strange noises, if you let this problem go on for too long, you risk complete system breakdown, so don’t delay, and call for help right away.
Many homeowners think it’s normal for ice to form on the evaporator coil, but it isn’t. If you see ice or water pooling around the AC unit, it’s something you want to fix as soon as possible before you incur further damage.
Foul, Burning Odors
If you smell burning plastic or an electrical odor, don’t wait and hope it goes away; call for emergency AC repair immediately. These problems indicate electrical issues, which you don’t want to ignore because they can affect the power throughout your home.
If you experience a problem with your air conditioner and don’t feel safe waiting, call Chad’s AC Direct for our 24-hour AC repair service.
We know how tight money can sometimes be, which is why we have financing options for those with approved credit.
When to Consider a New Air Conditioner Installation
Nothing lasts forever, and that includes your air conditioner. With routine maintenance and tune-ups, you can extend the lifespan of your air conditioner anywhere from 15 to 20 years; however, eventually, the system will require replacing. Fortunately, most air conditioners give off warning signs that things are going downhill and that you need to plan on replacing them sooner rather than later. So, be on the lookout for the following signs that your air conditioner is getting long in the tooth.
As mentioned, with regular maintenance, you can expect your air conditioner to last for nearly two decades, but after that, consider it to be on borrowed time and plan on replacing it once it reaches the upper range of its natural lifespan.
If you get regular tune-ups and maintenance from a reputable AC contractor, you shouldn’t experience any catastrophic breakdowns. Air conditioners tend to fail more frequently during the last few years of their lives, so if you find that you’re repairing your system more often than before, maybe it’s time to start saving for a replacement.
Higher Energy Bilos
Unless you suddenly change your air conditioner usage habits, your energy bill should remain pretty consistent month-to-month. So, if you find that your energy bills have suddenly spiked, and you’ve not changed your usage, look to your air conditioner as the culprit. Air conditioners typically lose efficiency as they age, which means they work harder to keep you cool, translating to higher energy bills.
Your System Uses R22 Freon
The refrigerant known as Freon was discontinued in the US starting on January 1, 2020, because of environmental concerns. While it might not seem like a big deal, it could affect your home more than you think. If you own an air conditioner that’s over ten years old, it probably uses R22 as its refrigerant. And while you can still use your air conditioner, you won’t be able to get a freon refill if it breaks down or leaks.
