Timely AC Replacement Can Reduce Maintenance Costs

The decision to replace your air conditioner isn’t always easy. It’s a significant investment. This is why we always do our best to provide our customers with more cost-effective repairs when possible. However, if your older AC unit is on its last legs and showing signs of failure, replacing it will offer more long-term advantages. A new air conditioner can help you enjoy lower energy bills, provide superior airflow, and leave you with greater peace of mind.

Causes and Repair Options

Faulty wiring

A wiring problem can cause your AC to stop working. Our experts will inspect your equipment and address any wiring or circuit breaker issues.

Broken fan belt

These can become damaged or worn over time (similar to tires wearing out on a car). This is usually indicated by a squealing noise. Our technicians can check for this during routine AC maintenance.

Refrigerant leak

Do you hear hissing noises or notice foul smells coming from your AC? Chances are there’s a refrigerant leak. Avoid adding refrigerant on your own; an HVAC professional will know the appropriate amount to get your unit working at optimal levels again.

Frozen evaporator coil

This is often caused by poor circulation or lack of maintenance. You will know if your evaporator coil is frozen by the warm air leaving your unit.

Defective motor or compressor

Your AC unit’s motor or compressor can wear out over time. After a careful inspection, we will carry out repairs or replace the defective parts.

Contact our team of HVAC professionals today at (573) 777-3660 to schedule an appointment and ensure your AC system operates at its best. Rely on us for all your air conditioning repair and maintenance needs.

FAQ

Why is my AC running but not cooling?

There could be several reasons why your AC is running but not cooling. It could be due to a dirty air filter restricting airflow, a refrigerant leak, a malfunctioning compressor, a faulty thermostat, or issues with the condenser unit. It’s best to contact a professional HVAC technician to diagnose and resolve the problem. They will have the expertise to identify the specific issue and provide the necessary repairs or adjustments to restore your AC’s cooling functionality.

Why does it cost so much to fix an AC unit?

The cost to fix an AC unit can seem high due to various factors. Firstly, the complexity of AC systems requires skilled technicians with specialized knowledge and training, which contributes to labor costs. Additionally, the cost of replacement parts and materials can vary depending on the specific make and model of the unit. Diagnostic tools, equipment, and overhead expenses also factor into the overall cost. 

The need for timely repairs to prevent further damage or system failure may lead to higher costs. It’s important to remember that investing in professional AC repairs ensures long-term reliability and efficient cooling.

How long do AC units last?

The lifespan of an AC unit can vary depending on several factors. On average, a well-maintained air conditioning unit can last between 10 to 15 years. However, this can be influenced by factors such as usage patterns, climate conditions, installation quality, and maintenance practices. 

Regular maintenance, including cleaning, filter replacements, and professional inspections, can help extend the lifespan of the AC unit. It’s important to consult with HVAC professionals to assess the condition of your specific unit and determine if it requires repairs or replacement as it approaches the end of its lifespan.

Great experience with the office and field staff at MasterTech. , Outstanding customer service. Highly recommend. Kyle and MacKenzie were both professional and efficient.
We had plumbing problems that needed fixing. Investigating those problems turned up other underlying problems that needed fixing but not emergent. We decided to get everything fixed during the same visit. We were not pressured to get everything repaired at the same time. That was our decision.
Prompt, knowledgeable, friendly. Andy and Dillion were efficient in things fixed.

Installing a walk-in shower wasn't on the list of services. But Gary did a great job and I literally didn't have to do anything like go to Home Depot or any other store - just like I asked 😊 All I had to do was tell him what I needed and he took care of everything.

Having noticed a leak of water when it rains I called MasterTech twice to look at problem. Water leak around where the water pipe they installed.Both times they informed me the leak was my problem. Saying they were plumbers not responsible for the leaking groundwater where they installed the pipe having drilled through my foundation to put their plumbing through. Referred me to a foundation repair company. Not an acceptable response. I will dig out on outside of wall and seal myself. And consider their “ guarantee of work “ worthless. Sealing my foundation should be part of their responsibility. Their water pipe doesn’t leak, but my wall does. And MasterTech drilled the hole to put the water pipe through.It should have been sealed!

Mastertach was great! From the start, the offie personnel responded promptly to the message I had left, she was polite and friendly. The crew showed up on time the next day. They had the tools needed to identify the issue and were able to call in a crew to get it fixed immediately. They were the 3rd plumbing Co in 4 months to come out, but the ONLY one that went beyond addressing the symptoms to fixing the problem.

Had such a great experience. These guys are so friendly, very helpful, and go above and beyond. They fixed my water leak, gave me a walkthrough of what they’d be doing, helped me understand the entire procedure and even cleared a clogged drain for me without me even asking them to do so. Great work, personable, and efficient! Took them no time at all to do the job. 10/10 recommend

Kyle and McKenzie came out today to do my routine maintenance. In passing, I laughed and told McKenzie how randomly my unit goes to 62 degrees in the middle of the night. She took control, reset all the crazy random presets I lessed up and set them to my actual request. That is not even part of my plan, but kindness.Also, maintenance plan is CRAZY reasonable. I pay less than a price of a filter monthly and they also changed that for me! Great Job. Love my LOCAL BUSINESSES. THEY ARE MAINTAINING A UNIT I DID NOT PURCHASE FROM THEM but I will next time!

Matthew was fast and efficient when he was here to put in a new water heater. He explained everything he was doing and answered all my questions in an easy manner that didn't make me feel that I was taking up his time. I enjoyed talking to him.The only complaint I had was when he arrived he didn't have the hot water heater I had ordered and had to go back and get it. He stated that he had been told he was there for a water heater replacement and that was it. I had gotten a quote in writing with the water heater I wanted and even texted Master Tech to ask about the diameter of the new heater to make sure it would fit. I was surprised they hadn't loaded his truck with the correct model.Other than that, no complaints

Matt was professional, polite, knowledgeable, and very competent. He carefully explained what was happening and the increasing costs as more and more problems became apparent. He worked hard to figure out the best solution to complicated issues. He worked in a very uncomfortable, cramped position in a tight space in a corner cabinet with any complaining. Please convey to him our appreciation.
Max got here quickly on a weekend call and was helpful with explaining the repair throughout the process. Would strongly recommend.

The plumber who came out to my house was a guy named Max. He was very helpful and courteous. Even though it was 9 p.m. when he got to my house he didn’t rush through the job and he took time to answer my questions. He was very skilled and great at customer service. He cleared my sewer line and plunged the drains in my basement so the water cleared out. He also told me the cause of the line being clogged and referred me for a full inspection so I could get a quote on cost of repair.
Excellence doesn’t begin to scratch the surface. Plumber, Gary Buck was my technician and he is AMAZING! So professional and knowledgeable; prompt, personable and clean. There oughta be six or seven stars for this guy. Truly outstanding.

The techs showed up and managed to get the thermostat & gas furnace running over the weekend so we were never down without heat, but still had an issue with the heat pump tripping out the system. The techs went through the system’s wiring and parts to narrow down and diagnose the issue. Then replicated the issue several times to confirm. In no time the ran to the warehouse grabbed the part, installed, and got us fully operational. Thanks Again.
Matt is an amazing tech. He was alright with a video call so I could see how the repairs were going. He knows what he's doing to help fix this 94 year old house water pipe issues. Matt is a amazing and awesome guy. Thank you very much for your hard work.
