Air conditioning service
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 increase energy costs, warmer 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 Air Conditioner Repair Do I Need?

A number of things that can go wrong with a complex air conditioning unit. Learn common air conditioner repair FAQ and why air conditioning maintenance is your best return on investment. Here are 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 - 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 cooling stops.
  • Compressor - No compressor can mean warmer air or less air flow. AC can run without cooling your place.
  • 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.

Don't Just Tune-Up Your AC System, Revitalize It With Six Critical Adjustments.

On average, 42% of homeowners have a professional maintain their air conditioning system. Regular HVAC maintenance extends the life of air conditioners by 40%. See Energy Star's HVAC maintenance checklist.

Best Return On Investment.

Like your vehicle oil change and tune-up, air conditioning maintenance adjusts:

  1. Electrical Connection - loose connections, weak components lead to breakdowns and unsafe conditions.
  2. Air Filtration - Clogged, dirty air filter can restrict airflow by 60%, reduce air quality, even overheat AC unit. 
  3. Exterior Condenser Coil - cleaning, testing improves efficiency and performance.
  4. Refrigerant Level - AC runs longer and shortens life with low refrigerant.
  5. Duct Connections - obstruction from debris or leaking duct wastes energy and affects air quality. Inspect for dirty ducts and visible air leaks.
  6. Accurate Airflow - poor airflow helps create hotter or colder rooms.

Restore your AC unit back to factory specifications so it runs better, safer and longer. Plus keep your manufacturer warranty active. Save more with a PDM annual service plan to keep your HVAC in top condition.
