When the air conditioner is more than 10 years old, it's likely you’ll experience an increase in repairs and need for maintenance. It’s also not abnormal to hear dreadful stories about going without air conditioning in the Raleigh heat.

This is why our experts will first make an effort to repair your damaged air conditioner. If your central AC just won’t work and has no life left to give, we'll help you find the appropriate replacement system for your home. The most important part of the process is that you are aware of all your selections for your air conditioning system, and that your home comfort and safety is taken into consideration during the service call. We realize a new air conditioning system is a big investment, so we’ll work with you to determine the best system to meet your needs and budget while keeping the Raleigh climate in mind. You could also benefit from rebates and other cash incentives provided by utility companies, manufacturers, and local and federal governments. Signs you may need an AC Replacement Soon Your air conditioner might 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 AC system is not cooling your home. You are frequently scheduling repairs. Your cooling bills have been increasing. Cooled air coming from your vents is weaker. Your AC unit is constantly running. The HVAC system is making funny noises. How do you gauge if you should contemplate an AC repair or an air conditioner replacement? If you're uneasy, the Dallas Guide to Air Conditioner Replacement is a good place to start. Raleigh AC Repair Troubleshooting Checklist What to do before reaching out to Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an AC Repair Take a look at your breaker box for a tripped breaker. If the breaker is flipped, try resetting 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 can’t move much, making it look as though there is another problem. Older homes might have fuse boxes, in which case you're searching for a blown fuse. Inspect 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 to bring in the experts if a couple double AA batteries fix the situation. Listen for odd noises coming from your air conditioning system. If you hear clicking, call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning straightaway. Take a look to see if ice is present. If there is ice on your AC unit in a Raleigh summer, you might 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 need to be repaired quickly, or you have the threat of damaging critical components of your air conditioning system. Switch your filter! We all disregard the little chores sometimes. Replacing the air conditioning system's filter is an easy one to forget. Blocked air flow from an excessively dirty filter can harshly reduce your system's efficiency and result in 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 Raleigh heatwaves at some point in the future. Can you Repair an AC Coil Leak? We sure can. A leaking evaporator coil can be easily noticeable, but expensive 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 reduce the chance of more costly repairs down the road. In the event that the leak cannot be sealed and repaired, our HVAC technicians can replace the faulty component. AC Coil Repair Cost: $400-$1,200 Can you Repair the AC Compressor? Typically 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 costlier pieces of the system. If you have an old unit and the compressor is done, 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 have two different levels, so it can run a little lower on days that have milder temps, which supports efficiency. The most efficient selection is the variable capacity compressor which has the capability to constantly adapt to meet the desired temperature of the home. When the time happens to get help with your air conditioner, you can depend on the qualified technicians at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. Contact us at 919-578-4329 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 Lead to 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 problems as time passes. Whether it results in air conditioner service calls or you needing 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 running efficiently, the compressor and fan controls could wear out, or several other significant components may be impacted. When your system cycles on and off a lot there is avoidable 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 correctly, there are a host of thermostat problems that could take place. If it has been a while since you last switched your thermostat batteries, it could be time to do so in order to avoid any issues with the settings you have in place. 4 Condensation in your Air Conditioner Your air conditioning unit will produce a large amount of condensation. Some air conditioners have an electric condensate pump with tubing that can be damaged or clogged with algae or ice. Contact one of our friendly service technicians if you think something is wrong with your pump. What you can do to get your AC Repair Faster Everyone wants relief quickly, especially in a sweltering Raleigh heatwave. But it's a fact that the hotter it gets; the more AC repair calls your local Raleigh HVAC companies take. There are two actions you can take to get faster service. Keep an eye on the weather. If you hear in the forecast that it is going to be hot and you know your air conditioner is old and not operating as efficiently, reach out to Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning and book a tune-up as soon as possible. Make sure you discuss your concerns and anything different you've seen about your air conditioning system. This will help us inspect anything that could be the source of a catastrophic failure during hot weather. Take part in one of Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning's Service Plans. Not only do you have the extra benefit of having regular tune-ups for your air conditioner, which could help you avoid the need for an AC repair completely. If something does happen, you’re already top of mind. Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioning Repair If it chills the air, we can fix it. Mini-split AC units are good selections for historic homes that do not have the option for ductwork, tough to heat and cool spaces like garages or new additions where the AC system does not currently reach. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can repair, replace, and install ductless mini-split air conditioning systems of any make and model. In the Raleigh area, we have many newer homes and more are built every day. Occasionally a newer home could still have heating and cooling problems for specific rooms. We can install a zoning system to help mitigate any problem areas in your home that experience hot and cold spots. Some customers choose to use a mini-split system for this problem as well. While we find these solutions are reliable, it does happen sometimes that a mini-split system wears out and needs repairs just like a central air conditioning system.
