Frequently Asked Questions About Air Conditioning Repairs
Will preventative maintenance protect my air conditioner from breakdowns?
Staying on top of air conditioner maintenance will protect your system, extend its life span, and optimize your comfort. Routine maintenance is also essential for preserving your warranty coverage if a covered part fails before its time.
Can I perform AC repairs myself?
We strongly advise against DIY air conditioner repairs. Air conditioners contain coolant, which can be toxic, electrical systems that can cause electric shocks, and components that can easily take a finger off. An improper repair can go wrong and cause a system failure in several ways. Our air conditioning technicians in Virginia have the skills, expertise, and tools to safely and effectively repair your system.
What are the most common causes of AC failure?
Falling behind on maintenance is the leading cause of AC failure. Other causes include coolant leaks, worn-out blower motors, clogged condensate drains, and electrical faults. Our air conditioning technicians can quickly identify the problem and apply the necessary repairs to resolve the issue permanently.
Is it worth taking the time to straighten my AC unit's fins?
Bent fins block airflow into your air conditioner and diminish performance, making your air conditioner work harder to keep you comfortable. As a result, your AC will experience more wear and tear, resulting in a premature breakdown.
Should I replace an older AC that uses R-22 refrigerant?
Yes. R-22 is becoming harder to find and costlier to purchase. Modern AC systems are more efficient, safer, and reliable. If you have an older system that uses R-22 that needs serious repairs, we recommend replacing it now rather than waiting.
