What is AC Repair?

This one is a little self-explanatory! AC Repair encompasses everything a licensed AC Repair technician would to fix/repair an air conditioning unit. This includes various things ranging from the unit not turning on all the way to a compressor that isn’t working.

Caution: The AC repair industry is very cutthroat. There will be many predatory contractors trying to rip you off and price high, well, because it’s air conditioning, and you need it. Even if you don’t go with GAP Mechanical, please consult multiple companies and get accurate quotes. Another caution is to ensure you are having your work done by a licensed professional. Otherwise, the quality of the job is at stake and can cost thousands of dollars.

Signs You Need AC Repair

There are many many signs you would need AC Repair. Some are extremely hard to detect but at GAP Mechanical some of the most frequent calls we get are in regards to:

  • The air conditioning unit won’t turn on
  • Weird noises and shaking when the unit is running or turning on
  • Warm air is flowing when it should be cold
  • The fan can be heard/seen running but the compressor is not working
  • Water is gathering all around the unit

 

The air conditioning unit won’t turn on

The first thing to check when your unit is not turning on is to see if your thermostat is the issue. The primary issue would be the batteries. You need to make sure that it has batteries and the thermostat is working. Once you’ve eliminated that possibility from being the issue, set your AC to cool. If it is still not turning on – it can be a lot of different things. It could range from electrical failure to pressure related issues. Electrical problems include wire corrosion and pressure issues could include too much pressure on your compressor. Normally, routine maintenance can likely prevent these things from happening. You will need to contact an HVAC professional or technician immediately. If you are in Central Florida and surrounding areas, GAP Mechanical has you covered.

 

Warm air is flowing when it should be cold

Like many issues with an AC unit, this could be due to a bunch of reasons. It can be something like a buildup of debris inside your air conditioner. This is why it is highly recommended that you have regular maintenance checks performed on your unit. This is what ultimately results in coils that have gotten dirty and clogged filters. An extremely common issue is the absence of refrigerant. It happens when it hasn’t been charged or a leak. Regardless of the issue, for these kinds of problems you need to contact a professional. If you are just starting to see the signs of an issue like the one above, schedule a routine maintenance call today.

 

Weird noises and shaking of the unit

For this one, it can literally be anything. For your own safety, we advise you to power the unit off. Make sure there is absolutely no power going to the unit and call a professional immediately. If you are in the Orlando area or surrounding central Florida area then we have you covered. Call us today.

The fan can be heard/seen running but the compressor is not working

Sometimes you will run into issues where the unit looks to be fine and working when it isn’t. A lot of the time these issues tend to be a little harder to diagnose and a little more technical. For example, if your compressor is not working it would take a professional know how to properly resolve this issue. Like always the best course of action is to power your unit off and make sure the issue does not get worse. Then the next step should be to call a professional ASAP. You need a licensed professional to assist in any air conditioning needs.

 

Water is gathering around the unit

If you go to your outside unit and see a leak it could be a number of things. You could have something like a refrigerant leak, formation of ice, or some kind of obstruction in the pipes. These kinds of issues and a multitude of others could definitely result in a leak of your unit. If it is leaking excessively, power off the unit as always. Call a professional so that they can diagnose your problem and take a look inside. With any issue that may require taking the unit apart, it is important you get licensed and insured professional so that you are safe. If you are in Orlando FL or surrounding areas of Central Florida, GAP Mechanical is the best in town. You are in safe hands. Give us a call today to come by and take a look. We will have you up and running in no time.

 

Repair or Replace The Unit?

Now when it comes to whether we should repair or replace the unit, that boils down to the circumstances. If your air conditioning unit is more than 10 years old and giving you trouble, you may be more inclined to just replace it. Investments and utilities also play their part in whether you should consider a repair or replacement. In *most* cases, it is advised to get a replacement depending on when your unit was installed and how efficient it is.

Some of the benefits are:

Lower Humidity

When people think about air conditioning, most people only consider the fact that the system cools the air to reduce the temperature. However, an air conditioning system also reduces the humidity in the air at the same time it cools it. This is good for comfort as the higher the humidity levels are, the less comfortable it can be because of the sticky feeling that high humidity offers. Some air conditioning systems also have options or features to focus on the humidity of the entire home without heating or cooling it too drastically.

 

Increased Air Quality

Most air conditioning systems are great at keeping the air clean in your home. They’re equipped with a filtration system that helps to keep dust, pollen, and other airborne hazards out of the home. Some filters can be installed in different parts of the home, helping to keep the air even cleaner.

Improves Your Home’s Energy Efficiency

Arguably, the most important reason to have your AC system regularly cleaned and maintained is that it will significantly improve your home’s energy efficiency and lower the operating cost of your air conditioner. Annual servicing from our professional HVAC techs is the best way to ensure your system is running to its fullest potential.
