This is why our experts will first try to repair your broken air conditioner. If your central AC just won’t work and has no life left to give, we'll help you find the right replacement system for your home. The most important factor is that you have all your choices for your air conditioning system, and that your home comfort and safety is considered during the service call. We realize a new air conditioning system is a big investment, so we’ll work with you to identify the best choice to meet your needs and budget while keeping the Albany weather in mind. You could also benefit from rebates and other cash incentives from utility companies, manufacturers, and local and federal governments. Signs you may need an AC Replacement Soon Your air conditioner could give you some "warning signs" that it's near the end of its life. Consider contacting an HVAC technician about a pre-emptive air conditioner replacement if: Your air conditioner is not cooling your home. You need frequent AC repairs. Your cooling bills have been increasing. Cooled air coming from your vents is losing strength. Your AC unit is consistently running. The HVAC system is making funny noises. How do you gauge if you should think about an AC repair or an air conditioner replacement? If you're worried, the Dallas Guide to Air Conditioner Replacement is a good place to read up. Albany AC Repair Troubleshooting Checklist What to do before calling D.A. Bennett 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 look like it has tripped. Some breakers will trip but the switch doesn’t move much, making it seem as though there is a separate problem. Older homes may have fuse boxes, in which case you're looking for a blown fuse. Inspect your thermostat. You want to ensure that there are working batteries in it, it's functioning and that it's set to cool. There is no need call for an AC repair if a couple double AA batteries fix the situation. Listen for odd noises coming from your air conditioning system. If you hear clicking, call D.A. Bennett Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning straightaway. Take a look to see if ice is present. If you do see ice on your AC unit in a Albany summer, it's possible that you have a refrigerant leak. Sometimes you’ll notice ice on the lines running from your condenser (the big air conditioning unit outside your home with a fan on top) into your house. Refrigerant leaks must be repaired quickly, or you have the threat of damaging vital components of your air conditioning system. Change out your filter! We all disregard the little chores from time to time. Replacing the air conditioning system's filter is an easy one to forget. Blocked air flow from an excessively dirty filter can brutally reduce your system's efficiency and result in extra wear on components, like the blower motor. Examine your air vents. Your air conditioning system has to breathe, which means maintaining air flow. If you have blocked air flow from your supply and return vents, it's possible you will have an AC repair during Albany heatwaves at some point in the future. Can you Repair an AC Coil Leak? Our experts can help with an AC coil leak. A leaking evaporator coil can be easy to spot, but costly to replace. It's because of air conditioner repairs like this that we advocate for an AC maintenance plan. Preventative maintenance and consistent tune-ups can help to prevent 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? Usually if the compressor is shot, you're going to replace it, not repair it. The compressor in an air conditioner is a critical 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 will possibly want to replace the unit. There are three categories of AC compressors: single stage compressors, two-stage compressors and variable-speed compressors. The single stage compressors can only function at one level, which means it will run full force as long as it’s on. The two stage compressors offer two different levels, so it can run a little lower on days that aren’t quite as warm, which helps with efficiency. The most efficient choice is the variable capacity compressor which has the ability to constantly correct itself to meet the desired temperature of the home.

Contact us at 518-205-3324 and we’ll be happy to answer your questions or set up 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 run over lengthy periods of time without being maintained is likely to cause more headaches as time goes on. Whether it ends with air conditioner service calls or you needing a new air conditioning system, lack of maintenance, is harmful to the efficiency and operation of your system. 2 AC Component Failure When your air conditioner isn’t working efficiently, the compressor and fan controls might wear out, or several other vital components may be impacted. When your system cycles on and off a lot there is avoidable stress placed on these internal parts, resulting in 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 occur. If it has been a while since you last swapped out your thermostat batteries, it might be time to do so in order to dodge any concerns with the settings you have in place. 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 impaired or clogged with algae or ice. Reach out to one of our friendly service technicians if you believe something isn’t right with your pump.

D.A. Bennett Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is qualified to repair, replace, and install ductless mini-split air conditioning systems of any make and model. In the Albany area, we have many newer homes and more are being constructed every day. Sometimes a newer home may still have heating and cooling problems for specific rooms.
