IKE’S Air Conditioning Provides the Right San Antonio Air Conditioner
There are many reasons why your air conditioning system may need repair.
If your AC system is getting older, you may find regular wear-and-tear
has resulted in a fan belt that has worn out, a defective motor or compressor,
or frozen coils. In an air conditioning unit, there are many underlying
causes of problems. With our team of San Antonio AC Repair technicians,
we can identify the root of the issue and provide the right solution.
What Are Common Signs You Need AC Repair?
The air conditioner won’t turn on - This usually happens because of an electrical problem so make sure to
double check that you don't have any blown fuses. If that's not the issue
then call in our San Antonio air conditioning repair pros to get your
unit back to working normally.
Water is leaking from the unit - This observation can happen from a few different causes. It's possible
that ice is accumulating on your unit and melted water is dripping. In
this instance check that your air filter isn't too dirty. If you're not
seeing ice and just noticing water leaking from the unit, then it's likely
that there's a leak in your condensate drain line or the drain pan.
The fans in the unit do not turn on - If your fans aren't working properly, your unit will still create cold
air but it won't go anywhere which could cause the coil to freeze. Obviously
this is less than ideal, so make sure to call in our San Antonio air conditioner
Weird noises or humming comes from the AC - A little bit of noise isn't much to worry about. But if it's loud then
it can be destructive so make sure to get your unit serviced before a
small problem turns into a big one.
Warm air is exiting your air conditioner - If you're not getting cold air from your air conditioner, then what exactly
is it doing? It's possible this is a thermostat issue or it could be that
poor airflow is inhibiting your unit from properly cooling.
Why Isn't My Air Conditioner Turning On?
If your AC system won't turn on, there are a few troubleshooting steps
you can look into before calling a professional. If your AC system still
won't turn on after checking these, you likely have a larger problem on
your hands. Fortunately, IKE’S Air Conditioning is here to help!
Our San Antonio AC repair team understands the chaos that accompanies
air conditioning problems, so you can rest assured we’ll always
respond quickly to get your system back up and running as soon as possible.
AC troubleshooting tips:
Check the thermostat - There are three main problems that can arise with your thermostat: it’s
incorrectly set (e.g., if you accidentally have it set to “heat”
instead of “cool”); has low or dead batteries; or is completely
broken and irreparable, which quickly disables the whole system’s
ability to function normally. Fortunately, all three of these issues can
be taken care of right away, especially if all that needs to be done is
simply flipping the switch to “cool” or replacing the batteries.
If your thermostat is flat out broken, you’ll likely need to replace
it; but this is still a far simpler and more affordable fix than a complete
Check your circuit breaker - If your thermostat isn’t the culprit, the next area you should check
is the circuit breaker. If something caused your breaker to trip, or go
out, this prevents the electrical current that powers your system from
ever reaching it. Before you try to reset it, search your home to see
if you can identify what caused the trip so you can resolve the issue
before resetting it. If you’re unable to identify the problem, go
ahead and reset it, but resort to calling a local electrician to diagnose
and solve the problem if it persists.
Check the air filter - If it’s been a while since you’ve replaced your air filter,
this could very well be the problem. Dirty or clogged filters not only
contribute to poor indoor air quality, but can also cause your AC unit
to “freeze up,” or stop turning on. Check your filter and
replace it right away if it’s dirty.
If you've taken the above steps and still haven't determined the cause
of the problem, it's likely that it's a bigger issue that should be handled
by a professional such a s a refrigerant leak or a damaged motor.
Is It Time to Replace My Air Conditioner?
Often times it makes more financial sense to repair your broken air conditioning
system instead of paying for a
full replacement. The expert San Antonio HVAC technicians at IKE'S Air Conditioning can
provide you with the best solution for your needs and never try to up-sell
you on a product you don't need. We also offer
AC maintenance to help keep your system in top working order.
AC Repair Vs. Replacement
When your AC breaks down you're left with two choices. You could either
opt for AC repair or you might want to consider replacing your unit instead
if you notice any of the following.
Your AC is over 10 years old - Exactly how long your AC unit lasts depends on use, environment and maintenance
levels. But if your AC is older than ten years old you should think twice
before throwing more money into AC repair.
The repair is really expensive - If there is one repair that costs almost half the price of a new unit,
you should opt for the new unit instead because replacement is just over
Your unit requires R22 Freon - Because of the 2020 Freon Ban the banned coolant is going to become more
and more expensive over time. It's not illegal to still use, but the production
of the coolant has ended and it will only get more scarce.
Repair after repair - While our San Antonio AC repair experts will always happily be in to
fix your AC, if they're over so much that they're becoming friends then
maybe you should get a new unit.
Utility bills are on the rise - One thing all old AC units have in common is they become less efficient
over time. If your AC is causing your utility bills to skyrocket then
it may be too old for another AC repair.
