We have been in Missouri long enough to know that the weather can change at the drop of a hat, and if it is not randomly snowing in the summer chances are the heat is nearly unbearable. The worst thing that can happen is your air conditioning unit to go out or fail to keep up on an average 95 degree and high humidity day, and then being told that you need to wait several days to schedule an appointment to repair your air conditioning unit which is completely unacceptable.
With that in mind, at MasterTech Plumbing, Heating and Cooling, we are available 24/7 to answer your call and to send a technician out to your location as soon as possible.
Common Air Conditioning Issues
- The air conditioning will not start
- Odd noises or rumbling during startup or mid-use
- The AC unit distributes warm air rather than cold air
- The fan is not rotating
- Water is forming in a puddle around the air conditioning unit
- The AC unit is constantly running or fails to keep the air temperature cooled appropriately
Possible Repair Options
If you are finding that no power is going to the ac unit, faulty wiring could be the issue. The professional HVAC technicians at MasterTech Plumbing, Heating and Cooling can address wiring, circuit breaker, and other problems that would cause your ac unit to lose power.
Fan belts can wear out in a unit similar to tires wearing out on a car. This is usually indicated by a squealing noise coming from the air conditioning unit. Ideally, you would want to replace the fan belt before it breaks as the cost tends to rise substantially upon breaking. At MasterTech, our professional HVAC technicians check for this during our regular Tune-Up.
If you hear a hissing sound, or find odd smelling condensation coming from your unit, there is a good chance a refrigerant leak is occurring. Our HVAC technicians can perform the repairs necessary to get your air conditioning unit to work optimally again.
Frozen Evaporator Coil
A frozen evaporator coil can occur with excess use or bad circulation in your unit. When the air exiting the unit is warm, chances are the evaporator coil is frozen.
Defective Motor or Compressor
Parts get old, overused, and worn out. This is an absolute with any machine, and an air conditioning unit is no exception. The most common parts we see that become defective with time is the motor or compressor, which our HVAC technicians can either repair or replace as necessary.
Benefits of Air Conditioning Repairs
Repairs and maintenance bring many positives to the AC system as well as your wallet. Our professional HVAC technicians can find problems that typically go unnoticed and repair them before they become more challenging to fix. Also, the price you pay for these repairs will save your wallet from taking more significant blows than if you were to let your air conditioning unit strain to work until it is burnt out. Furthermore, these repairs will also be better for your health, as a faulty cooling unit can deliver poor air circulation and increases toxin circulation.
