When Should I Schedule AC Repair?

A properly maintained air conditioner will last you a long time. But as your system gets older, it might start to run into some snares. In fact, there are a number of reasons why an air conditioner may stop working. Fortunately, no air conditioner problem is too large or too small for our team at James A. Wheat & Sons! Call us today if you encounter one of the following issues:

  • Your air conditioner is making a lot of noise  Loud noises coming from your air conditioner usually mean your fan coil is dislodged or frayed. As the belt continues to degrade, the noise can get louder and louder, causing a strain on your machine until the whole thing finally comes apart. Before this happens, give us a call! We can replace your fan belt and lubricate the bearing in your motor to get your AC running as good as new.
  • Your AC coil is frozen – If you go too long without changing your air filters, there’s a good chance your refrigerant coil will ice up at some point during the summer. In simpler terms, as warm, humid air passes through the coil, the moisture in the air condenses on the coil and moves through the condensate drain as the air flows. If airflow is restricted, the moisture stays put on the extremely low-temperature coil, quickly freezing. Frozen AC coils can cause a bunch of problems, including reduced cooling capacity and, eventually, full-on compressor failure.
  • Your air conditioner is leaking – Leaky air conditioners present a double problem—first, your air conditioner is damaged, which is bad enough, but second, leaks can also open up the door for mold and mildew growth. If your AC condensate drain stops working and you have water inside your home, just schedule an appointment with our pros. We can replace your rusted condensate pan or clear out any blockages in the drain pipe—whatever it takes to fix the problem!
  • Your air conditioner isn’t cooling your home – If there are no obvious signs of damage to your air conditioner but it’s not providing enough cool air, give us a call. We use the latest tools and technology to figure out exactly what is going on with your air conditioner so we can get it fixed as soon as possible.

If any of the above symptoms occur or you notice your air conditioner not working to its full capacity, don’t let the problem get any worse—contact James A. Wheat & Sons today. We can help you get your air conditioning unit working efficiently and safely.

Air Conditioning Repair FAQs

Why would my AC stop working suddenly?

If your AC stops working suddenly, check the fuses and the circuit breaker. You should also check the thermostat to ensure no one accidentally switched it to the heat setting. If this is not the cause of the problem, then you may have a frozen unit. Call an AC repair professional to get prompt help.

Why is there ice on my air conditioner?

Ice buildup on the outdoor unit of an air conditioner is a sign of problems. This can happen if the filter gets clogged, or it can happen if the unit is low on refrigerant. If you’re sure that the filter is not the culprit, give our team a call to assess the situation more thoroughly.

What problems indicate a need for emergency AC repair?

If you’re hearing loud, banging noises from your air conditioner or if you smell an electrical smell, you need prompt help. Similarly, if the AC won’t run at all and temperatures are dangerously high, you have an air conditioning emergency.
