What to Expect During an Air Conditioning Repair Services

Star Heating & Cooling technicians arrive at your home and quickly go to work. In most cases, we are able to diagnose the problem within minutes of testing your air conditioner. Our certified technicians use tools to diagnose and identify the cause of the malfunction in your air conditioning system. Depending on the cause of the breakdown, the repair may be in the outdoor AC unit or within the air handler. Common issues that require air conditioner repair include electrical problems, damaged coils, leaking refrigerant or low refrigerant levels, drainage problems, and simply dirty components. While regular maintenance helps to prevent many air conditioning repairs, age and usage may eventually require a repair. 

Once our technician determines the issue, a plan is created and you will be presented with an estimate for the repair. During this time, we are happy to answer any questions you may have. Many homeowners consider whether a repair will restore performance and extend the life of their air conditioner. In some cases, you may consider whether to repair the air conditioning system or replace it with a new unit. Star Heating & Cooling carefully listens to your questions and provides easy-to-understand answers. 

When you approve the repair, our technicians will go to work as quickly as possible, then test your entire system and review the work with you.

Signs Your Need Air Conditioning Repairs

Knowing the indicators and signs your air conditioning needs repair can save hundreds and even thousands of dollars. Unfortunately, an air conditioner cannot repair itself. Catching a small problem early reduces the risk of a major component like a compressor or blower motor failing. If you have any of these signs with your air conditioning system, contact our team for help.

Restricted Airflow

Uneven airflow, weak circulation, and restricted airflow are all signs of problems within the ventilation and air handler. Your air conditioning system should be able to blow air evenly throughout your home. AC repairs may include replacing air filters, cleaning clogs, repairing damaged ductwork, or fixing problems inside the air handler to make your home comfortable again.

Rising Energy Bills

Comparing your energy bills year over year helps you know how your air conditioning unit is running. A sudden change in energy usage warns you the unit and system are working harder to cool your home. This may be caused by low refrigerant levels, a weakened component, or even something as simple as a faulty thermostat. Our experienced technicians quickly fix your air conditioning problems and reduce your energy waste.

Performance Issues

A telltale sign of imminent trouble is any unusual sounds and smells. A change in the regular performance should prompt you to shut down the system and call for professional air conditioning repairs. When your ac unit is running properly, it shouldn’t emit a noise that’s louder than a hum. Common sounds include clicking, grinding, clanking and vibrations reverberating. Foul odors may indicate bacteria growth, electrical issues, or refrigerant leaks. The best course of action when you hear or smell anything different in your HVAC system is to contact our team for a complete inspection. 

Short Cycling

Short cycling is a serious issue that impacts your air conditioning unit. During short cycling, your air conditioner will not be able to complete an entire cooling cycle. It will start up and shut down quickly and repeatedly without being able to cool your home sufficiently. Short cycling can be caused by anything from lack of refrigerant, faulty thermostats, or air escaping through a ventilation system. It’s best to call an HVAC technician if you notice short cycling.


When Will I Need a New Air Conditioner?

Many homeowners fret that the issues they’re experiencing with their cooling system mean that they will need a new one soon. That’s not always the case. Sometimes, a simple fix is all your system needs to start working properly again. However, the longer you wait to address your air conditioning issues, the worse they could potentially become which can shorten the life of your HVAC system. You will most likely need a new air conditioner if:

  • It is over 15 years old

  • Has needed frequent repairs

  • Maintenance and service have been neglected

  • Your home is very humid, even when the air conditioner is running

  • You’ve called for repairs and have been told a major component needs to be replaced and it will be very expensive

Whenever you feel like something is with the performance of your air conditioner, talk to Star. We’re happy to also provide you with 2nd opinions and competitive pricing on a new air conditioner if we think that is the best solution for you.
