AC Repair and Maintenance FAQ
For anyone new to the world of HVAC services and maintenance, many parts of basic AC maintenance and inspection may be unknown or difficult. Below are some common questions on unit repair and when you should seek a professional. As always, our qualified team of experts are always available and will be more than happy to discuss any other questions you may have about your unit at 780-203-2230!
How do I know my AC is going bad?
Some telltale signs that your AC unit may not be working at full capacity is that your thermostat display is blank (may have lost communication with your unit), water is leaking from the unit, you feel weak airflow in your house, and the temperature in your building is generally inconsistent.
How often should I change my filter?
It is recommended to change your filter around every six months to ensure optimal performance. If you live in an area where the air quality is particularly poor or it’s allergy season, you may want to change it more often. Remember, an unchecked, clogged filter system can raise energy bills and cause your unit to work at less than 100%.
How often should I replace my unit?
A properly maintained AC unit can last for around seven years. Be sure to call us for a professional consultation to send a specialist out and assess if installing a new system is the best course of action for your home.
What are some common AC problems?
Weak airflow, refrigerant leaks, electrical failure, condensate drainage problems, and sensor problems are all common. We at Hydro-Flo Plumbing & Heating specialize in fixing all of these possible issues and more.
Besides regular maintenance, what’s another good way to save money and energy?
Get a programmable thermostat. It’s estimated that adjusting the temperature throughout the day can save between 15%–25% on energy costs.
What should I do if my AC keeps icing up?
Before you do anything else, check your air filter. Restricted air flowing around the coil can cause ice to form. Be sure to contact one of our service technicians as soon as possible if this happens, as ice can cause stress to components of your unit.
What are some things my HVAC technician will check for when inspecting my unit?
An HVAC technician will typical inspect the following on an AC unit: various electrical components, filters (to be cleaned or replaced), evaporator and condenser coils, thermostat operation and calibration, refrigerant levels, vapor condenser, and oil the motors.
What might happen if I don’t repair my AC system?
There are many components to an AC system that, when in various states of disrepair, can cause more damage to your unit. For instance, ice from around your AC that melts can cause more expensive water damage.
Having an AC system that is fully functional and operational at 100% capacity can also save you hundreds in future energy bills.
