AC Repair Services
Can you imagine spending your summer at home in Port St. Lucie with no AC? This fantastic device makes the warm, humid days much more bearable, and many homeowners can’t manage to go to sleep if the temperature is too hot, so having a unit that works correctly can be the difference between a good night and a lousy one.
And forget about fans, all they do is push the warm air around and never seem to refresh you; an AC will always be a much better option. However, they are not cheap, and replacing them can be a costly experience. That is why taking care of the unit as soon as you notice any problems is critical, many times once some part of the machine fails, if it is not repaired promptly it will cause other components to fail also, which could further damage the unit and make it unsalvageable.
As a homeowner, you can easily identify when something is wrong with the AC. Units that suddenly start making strange noises, or stop cooling the room as efficiently as they used to will alert you that somethings needs to be checked out.
For example, when a compressor is loose, the AC will emit a banging or clanking noise. The sound of gurgling or bubbling could mean that the refrigerant is leaking, and screeching is commonly caused by problems with the fan belt or the compression motor.
A unit that does not cool as much as it used to could have a refrigerant leak, but you’d be surprised by how many times this is caused by much simpler reasons, such as a filter or a condenser that has been blocked. This is frequent in homes where pets live. If you have cats or dogs, their hair can build up and clog the AC, restricting the air flowing to the evaporator and causing it to freeze. Simply cleaning the unit can sometimes get rid of this problem.
This is why you need to be careful when you pick the company that will diagnose your AC system. There are many unscrupulous handymen who will try to convince you to do a costly replacement when a quick repair is an option.
Repairing an air conditioner is almost always possible. If a part is burnt out, or broken, it can be taken care of, instead of having to replace the whole device. Our staff is trained to inspect your system carefully and will only ask you to replace the unit if it is absolutely necessary. In older homes, or when the AC has been used for many years, it might be better to buy a new unit, not only because an ancient unit will always be prone to failures, but because new units are more energy efficient and can save you some money on your electrical bill.
