Air Conditioning Repair

When you need air conditioning repair, it can really disrupt your life—especially when you’re in the middle of a hot, humid day. You need cool air circulating throughout your home to help keep you comfortable and safe from heat-related stressors. Well-functioning air conditioners also help improve your indoor air quality, filtering out harmful debris from the air that can worsen asthma and allergies, such as mold and dust.

It's not enough just to get your unit repaired, though. You want it repaired by someone who's going to do the job right the first time. Someone who's going to take care of your home as if it were their own. Someone you can trust to "leave the keys" with them. That someone is PDM. For over a hundred years we've served the fine folks of the SW Chicago suburbs, and we stand ready to serve you, too.

How much do HVAC service calls cost?

The cost for an HVAC service call will vary depending on many factors, but most AC and furnace repairs cost $144 to $451 on average, with minimum service visit charges ranging from $75 to $200. If you're not sure what's wrong with your air conditioner, an AC diagnostic will set you back roughly $89, while a tune-up would set you back around $100.

Why is my central air running but not cooling the house?

A blocked or clogged condenser coil might be the cause of your air conditioner working but not cooling the house. Dirt, grass and other flying debris can clog the condenser coil by accumulating between the fins. A filthy coil can result in lower energy efficiency, a shortage of cold air at the registers or, in the worst-case scenario, a full system shutdown or compressor failure. Clearing dirt, carefully vacuuming the coil with a brush attachment or gently washing the coil with a hose are all options for cleaning the coil. If your system is still not cooling, it's time to call a professional.

What would cause my home AC system to not kick on?

Your air conditioner may not turn on due to a variety of thermostat issues. Disconnected or missing cables are one of the most typical issues. Your air conditioner will not turn on if the wires are torn, disconnected or dirty. A broken thermostat is another prevalent issue. The thermostat will not deliver the signal to the air conditioner to turn on if it fails. If your thermostat is causing you difficulties with your air conditioning, you should replace it as soon as possible.

What Repairs Does My Air Conditioner Need?

An air conditioning unit is a complex machine, and as such there are a number of things that can go wrong if it hasn't been well-maintained. Here are some of the most common repairs we see:

  • Drainage - Air conditioners cause a lot of condensation, and it needs to drain out easily. If the drain line gets clogged, water can back up and damage the unit or surrounding equipment.
  • Capacitors - Capacitors carry the power that makes the unit work. A start capacitor sends a pulse of energy to get the motor started, then run capacitor keeps a continuous flow of pulses to keep it running. If one goes out, the AC won't run correctly.
  • Compressor - This one is really simple - no compressor, no cool air. The compressor pushes the refrigerant through the unit for heat exchange.
  • Refrigerant Leaks - If your unit has a coolant leak, not only will it fail to provide cool air but you also have an unwanted chemical leaking into your environment.
