Our Central AC Repair Services
If your air conditioning isn’t properly cooling your home or business, there are many components that could be to blame. At American Mechanical, we’re master HVAC contractors and know just what to look for to get your AC back in working order:
Is the fan working? The purpose of the outside fan on your AC unit is to take the heat from inside the home and push it outside. When the fan stops working, there is no way to get the heat out of your home; this makes it difficult for your AC to accomplish its main goal, which is to cool your home. Additionally, a faulty fan can cause your AC to overheat and completely breakdown.
Experiencing faulty wiring? Your AC features complex wiring. It’s best to leave wiring issues with your technician. Faulty wiring that is left un-repaired or replaced will cause your circuit breaker to trip or your entire unit to shut down.
Running low on refrigerant? The chemical in your AC that keeps the air cool is commonly referred to as refrigerant. If the unit has low levels of refrigerant, the air that your AC produces will not be cold. Low refrigerant levels mean that there is a leak in your unit that needs to be repaired. We will inspect your unit and get your AC back to normal again in no time.
Have a frozen evaporator coil? If there is a problem with airflow, the root of the issue lies in a frozen inside coil. This is another major problem that needs to be fixed as soon as possible to reduce the risk of having to replace your entire AC unit.
Should I Repair or Replace My Air Conditioner?
We get this question all the time! When trying to decide whether it’s more cost effective to repair or replace your A/C system, consider the following:
Is your air conditioner still under warranty?
If you have a warranty on the unit, you can simply use the warranty to cover the cost of any needed repairs. However, if your warranty has expired, it may be more cost-efficient to buy a new unit.
How old is your air conditioner?
If your unit has exceeded its general life span it may be time to consider installing a new air conditioner. This can save you money in the long run as new AC units are made to use less electricity yet will cool your house more efficiently. Our HVAC specialists can come out and check your unit to let you know if it may be time to make an upgrade.
Preventing Costly Air Conditioning Repairs
Having a professional come in the spring to check and service your HVAC system can prevent problems from arising in the dead of summer. A professional will come out to your home and inspect your unit, and they will also clean and tune up your AC so it runs smoothly. Doing this before summer arrives will give you confidence that when you switch on your AC on that first hot day in VA Beach, it will work.
