Signs you might need an AC Replacement Soon Your air conditioner could give you some "warning signs" that it's thinking about retiring. Consider contacting an HVAC technician about a pre-emptive air conditioner replacement if: Your air conditioning system is not cooling your home. You need frequent AC repairs. Your cooling bills keep rising. Cooled air coming from your vents is weaker. Your AC unit is always running. The HVAC system is making funny noises. How do you know if you should contemplate an AC repair or an air conditioner replacement? If you're concerned, the Dallas Guide to Air Conditioner Replacement is a great place to begin. Dayton AC Repair Troubleshooting Checklist What to do before calling Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an AC Repair Check your breaker box for a tripped breaker. If the breaker is flipped, you can try to reset it. You may want to flip it off and on again even if it doesn't seem like it tripped. Some breakers will trip but the switch won'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. Check your thermostat. You want to confirm that there are working batteries in it, it's operating 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 Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately. Look for ice. If you do see ice on your AC unit in a Dayton summer, you could have a refrigerant leak. Sometimes there will be 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 risk damaging key components of your air conditioning system. Switch your filter! We all ignore 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 severely reduce your system's efficiency and offer extra wear on components, like the blower motor. Examine 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 probable you will experience an AC repair during Dayton heatwaves down the road. Can you Repair an AC Coil Leak? Our experts can help with an AC coil leak. A leaking evaporator coil can be simple to spot, but pricey to replace. It's because of air conditioner repairs like this that we recommend an AC maintenance plan. Preventative maintenance and regular tune-ups can help to reduce the chance of more costly repairs down the road. Should it be determined 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? Typically if the compressor is shot, you're planning 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 will possibly 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 aren’t quite as warm, which helps with efficiency. The most efficient selection is the variable capacity compressor which has the capability to constantly adjust to meet the chosen temperature of the home. When the time happens to get help with your air conditioner, you can depend on the qualified technicians at Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. You can reach us at 937-503-7896 and we’ll be happy to answer your questions or schedule 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 run over lengthy periods of time without being maintained is likely to cause more headaches as time goes on. 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 running efficiently, the compressor and fan controls might 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, resulting in improper operation or premature failure. 3 Thermostat Problems From a dead battery to a thermostat sensor that isn’t calibrated appropriately, there are many thermostat problems that could happen. If it has been a while since you last swapped out your thermostat batteries, it might be time to do so in order to avoid any problems with the settings you chose. 4 Condensation in your Air Conditioner Your air conditioning unit will create 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. Contact one of our friendly service technicians if you think something isn’t right with your pump.

Mini-split AC units are ideal options for historic homes that do not have the necessary space for ductwork, tough to heat and cool spaces like garages or new additions where the AC system does not currently extend. Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning has the experts who can repair, replace, and install ductless mini-split air conditioning systems of any make and model. In the Dayton metro, we have several newer homes and more are being constructed every day. Once in a while a newer home could still have heating and cooling issues for specific rooms. We can install a zoning system to help eliminate any problem areas in your home that contain hot and cold spots. Some customers decide 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.
