The most important thing is that you have all your options for your air conditioning system, and that your home comfort and safety is kept in mind during the service call.

Signs you might need an AC Replacement Soon Your air conditioner may give you some "warning signs" that it's struggling to keep working. Consider reaching out to experts about a pre-emptive air conditioner replacement if: Your air conditioning system is not cooling your home. You are calling for AC repairs more often. Your cooling bills keep rising. Cooled air coming from your vents is losing strength. Your AC unit is consistently running. The HVAC system is making weird noises. How do you gauge if you should consider an AC repair or an air conditioner replacement? If you're concerned, the Dallas Guide to Air Conditioner Replacement is a good place to read up. San Antonio AC Repair Troubleshooting Checklist What to do before calling San Antonio Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an AC Repair Review your breaker box for a tripped breaker. If the breaker is flipped, you can try to reset it. You can flip it off and on again even if it doesn't appear to have tripped. Some breakers will trip but the switch doesn’t move much, making it look as though there is a different problem. Older homes may have fuse boxes, in which case you're looking for a blown fuse. Examine your thermostat. You want to make sure that there are working batteries in it, it's on and that it's set to cool. There is no need for an AC repair call if a couple double AA batteries will fix your problem. Listen for odd noises coming from your air conditioning system. If you hear clicking, call San Antonio Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning right away. Take a look to see if ice is present. If ice is on your AC unit in a San Antonio summer, you might have a refrigerant leak. Sometimes you can find ice on the lines going from your condenser (the big air conditioning unit outside your home with a fan on top) into your house. Refrigerant leaks should be repaired quickly, or you are in danger of damaging key components of your air conditioning system. Change out your filter! We all ignore the little chores once in a while. Replacing the air conditioning system's filter is an easy one to forget. Blocked air flow from an overly dirty filter can brutally reduce your system's efficiency and lead to extra wear on components, like the blower motor. Check your air vents. Your air conditioning system has to breathe, which means sustaining air flow. If you have blocked air flow from your supply and return vents, it's likely you will face an AC repair during San Antonio heatwaves down the road. Can you Repair an AC Coil Leak? We sure can. A leaking evaporator coil can be easily noticeable, but costly to replace. It's because of air conditioner repairs like this that we advocate for an AC maintenance plan. Preventative maintenance and ongoing tune-ups can help to decrease the odds of more costly repairs down the road. If it appears that the leak cannot be sealed and repaired, our HVAC technicians have the capability to replace the faulty component. AC Coil Repair Cost: $400-$1,200 Can you Repair the AC Compressor? Normally if the compressor is shot, you're looking to replace it, not repair it. The compressor in an air conditioner is a vital component and the part itself is one of the pricier pieces of the system. If you have an old unit and the compressor is finished, you may want to replace the unit. There are three types of AC compressors: single stage compressors, two-stage compressors and variable-speed compressors. The single stage compressors can only work at one level, which means it will run full force as long as it’s on. The two stage compressors provide two different levels, so it can run a little lower on days that are cooler, which helps with efficiency. The most efficient option is the variable capacity compressor which has the ability to constantly correct itself to meet the desired temperature of the home. When the time comes to get help with your air conditioner, you can count on the qualified experts at San Antonio Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. You can reach us at 210-570-9705 and we’ll be happy to answer your questions or schedule an appointment. AC Compressor Repair Cost: $1,350-$1,800 4 Things That Result in AC Repair in Dallas 1 Lack of Air Conditioner Maintenance Letting your air conditioner work over long periods of time without being maintained is likely to cause challenges as time elapses. Whether it results in air conditioner service calls or means a new air conditioning system, lack of maintenance, negatively impacts the efficiency and operation of your system. 2 AC Component Failure When your air conditioner isn’t working efficiently, the compressor and fan controls may wear out, or several other important components may be impacted. When your system cycles on and off a lot there is unnecessary stress placed on these internal parts, causing improper operation or premature failure. 3 Thermostat Problems From a dead battery to a thermostat sensor that isn’t calibrated properly, there are lots of thermostat problems that could take place. If it has been a while since you last replaced your thermostat batteries, it may be time to do so in order to escape any concerns with the settings you selected. 4 Condensation in your Air Conditioner Your air conditioning unit will make a large amount of condensation. Some air conditioners have an electric condensate pump with tubing that can be broken or clogged with algae or ice. Reach out to one of our friendly service technicians if you think something seems off with your pump.

Mini-split AC units are ideal options for historic homes that do not have room for ductwork, hard to heat and cool spaces like garages or new additions where the AC system does not currently extend. San Antonio Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can repair, replace, and install ductless mini-split air conditioning systems of any make and model. In the San Antonio metro, we have many newer homes and more are built every day. Sometimes a newer home might still have heating and cooling challenges for specific rooms. We can install a zoning system to help mitigate any problem areas in your home that have hot and cold spots. Some customers choose to use a mini-split system for this problem as well. While we find these systems are reliable, it does happen sometimes that a mini-split system wears out and requires repairs just like a central air conditioning system.
