The best AC repair is one that never happens, but we all recognize that's not reality. HVAC systems break down over time just like anything else, especially if routine air conditioner maintenance has been forgotten or neglected for a long time. When the air conditioner is more than 10 years old, it's only a matter of time before it requires more maintenance and repairs. It’s also not uncommon to hear dreadful stories about going without air conditioning in the Edmonton heat.

This is why we will first try to repair your damaged air conditioner. If your central AC just won’t work and has no life left to offer, we'll help you find the appropriate replacement system for your home. The most important part of the process is that you realize all your choices for your air conditioning system, and that your home comfort and safety is kept in mind during the service call. We realize a new air conditioning system is a important investment, so we’ll work with you to make the best selection to meet your needs and budget while keeping the Edmonton weather in mind. You could also benefit from rebates and other cash incentives offered by utility companies, manufacturers, and local and federal governments. Signs you might 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 AC system is not cooling your home. You are calling for AC repairs more often. Your cooling bills are getting higher. Cooled air coming from your vents is losing strength. Your AC unit is constantly running. The HVAC system is making weird 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 a good place to start. Edmonton AC Repair Troubleshooting Checklist What to do before contacting McKinley Heating Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an AC Repair Check your breaker box for a tripped breaker. If the breaker is flipped, reset the breaker. You may want to flip it off and on again even if it doesn't appear to have tripped. Some breakers will trip but the switch doesn’t move much, making it look as though there is a different problem. Older homes could 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 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 McKinley Heating Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately. See if there is ice. If you do see ice on your AC unit in a Edmonton summer, you might have a refrigerant leak. Sometimes there will be ice on the lines leading from your condenser (the big air conditioning unit outside your home with a fan on top) into your house. Refrigerant leaks must be repaired quickly, or you are in danger of damaging vital 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 a very dirty filter can severely reduce your system's efficiency and offer extra wear on components, like the blower motor. Check your air vents. Your air conditioning system must breathe, which means preserving air flow. If you have blocked air flow from your supply and return vents, it's likely you will face an AC repair during Edmonton heatwaves down the road. Can you Repair an AC Coil Leak? You bet. A leaking evaporator coil can be easily noticeable, but costly to replace. It's because of air conditioner repairs like this that we suggest an AC maintenance plan. Preventative maintenance and regular tune-ups can help to decrease the odds of more costly repairs down the road. Should it be determined 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 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 costlier 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 categories 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 offer two different levels, so it can run a little lower on days that are cooler, which supports efficiency. The most efficient selection is the variable capacity compressor which has the ability to constantly adjust to meet the chosen temperature of the home.

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 run over extended periods of time without being maintained is likely to cause problems as time goes on. Whether it results in air conditioner service calls or you needing a new air conditioning system, lack of maintenance, is harmful to 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 preventable stress placed on these internal parts, which can cause improper operation or premature failure. 3 Thermostat Problems From a dead battery to a thermostat sensor that isn’t calibrated appropriately, there are lots of thermostat problems that could take place. If it has been a while since you last replaced your thermostat batteries, it might be time to do so in order to dodge any problems with the settings you chose. 4 Condensation in your Air Conditioner Your air conditioning unit will make 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 believe something is wrong with your pump. What you can do to get your AC Repair Faster Everyone wants relief quickly, especially in a sweltering Edmonton heatwave. But it's a fact that the hotter it is outside; the more AC repair calls your local Edmonton HVAC companies gets. There are two measures you can take to get faster service. Watch the weather. If you see in the forecast that next week is going to be hot and you know your air conditioner is old and not working as efficiently, contact McKinley Heating Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning and book a tune-up as soon as possible.

This will help us inspect anything that could cause a catastrophic failure during warmer seasons. Take part in one of McKinley Heating Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning's Service Plans. Not only do you have the added benefit of having regular tune-ups for your air conditioner, which could stop the need for an AC repair totally. If something does break, you’ll already be on our radar. Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioning Repair If it chills the air, we can find a solution. Mini-split AC units are great selections for historic homes that do not have room for ductwork, tough to heat and cool spaces like garages or new additions where the AC system does not currently extend. McKinley Heating Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is qualified to repair, replace, and install ductless mini-split air conditioning systems of any make and model. In the Edmonton area, we have a lot of newer homes and more are going up every day. Sometimes a newer home could still have heating and cooling issues for specific rooms. We can install a zoning system to help ease any problem areas in your home that have hot and cold spots. Some customers decide 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.
