Signs you could need an AC Replacement Soon Your air conditioner could give you some "warning signs" that it's near the end of its life. Consider asking about a pre-emptive air conditioner replacement if: Your air conditioner 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 consistently running. The HVAC system is making funny noises. How do you figure out if you should think about an AC repair or an air conditioner replacement? If you're uneasy, the Dallas Guide to Air Conditioner Replacement is an ideal place to begin. Salt Lake City AC Repair Troubleshooting Checklist What to do before reaching out to Mountainwest 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. It's worth flipping 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 another problem. Older homes might 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 on and that it's set to cool. There is no need call for an AC repair if a couple double AA batteries will fix your problem. Listen for funny noises coming from your air conditioning system. If you notice clicking, call Mountainwest Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning right away. Take a look to see if ice is present. If you do see ice on your AC unit in a Salt Lake City summer, it's possible that you have a refrigerant leak. Sometimes there will be ice on the lines going from your condenser (the big air conditioning unit outside your home with a fan on top) into your house. Refrigerant leaks should be repaired quickly, or you have the threat of damaging critical components of your air conditioning system. Replace 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 overly dirty filter can severely reduce your system's efficiency and lead to extra wear on components, like the blower motor. Examine your air vents. Your air conditioning system needs 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 Salt Lake City heatwaves at some point in the future. Can you Repair an AC Coil Leak? You bet. A leaking evaporator coil can be simple to spot, but pricey to replace. It's because of air conditioner repairs like this that we suggest an AC maintenance plan. Preventative maintenance and ongoing tune-ups can help to prevent more costly repairs down the road. In the event 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 planning to replace it, not repair it. The compressor in an air conditioner is a critical 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 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 operate 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 have milder temps, which helps with efficiency. The most efficient choice is the variable capacity compressor which has the power to constantly correct itself to meet the desired temperature of the home. When the time arrives to get help with your air conditioner, you can rely on the qualified technicians at Mountainwest Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. You can reach us at 385-399-0280 and we’ll be happy to answer your questions or schedule 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 work over long periods of time without being maintained is likely to cause more headaches as time elapses. Whether it ends with air conditioner service calls or it requires 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 operating efficiently, the compressor and fan controls might 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, 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 occur. 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 broken or clogged with algae or ice. Contact one of our friendly service technicians if you suspect something seems off with your pump.

Mini-split AC units are great 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 exist. Mountainwest 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 Salt Lake City community, we have several newer homes and more are being constructed every day. Occasionally 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 experience hot and cold spots. Some customers choose to use a mini-split system for this problem as well. While we find these units are reliable, it does happen sometimes that a mini-split system wears out and requires repairs just like a central air conditioning system.
