Common AC Issues You May Be Facing

Common problems that arise in air conditioning systems are:

  • Build up of dirt that lowers overall efficiency
  • Loss of thermostat sensitivity
  • Low refrigerant levels
  • Frozen coils
  • Broken or malfunctioning fan

However, our team of air conditioning repair specialists in the Carolinas are trained to examine your damaged system in detail in order to ensure they fully understand the problem before taking action. Mechanical Doctor is not about the quick fix or making the biggest profit. Our goal is always to provide quality and reliable assistance to the members of our community.

Signs Your Air Conditioner Needs Repairs

Not all air conditioning problems are obvious. In fact, many problems begin small and can be easily overlooked if you do not know what signs to look for. While regular AC tune-ups and maintenance can go a long way to prevent breakdowns, it is important to periodically check your unit and call a professional if you notice any signs of failure.

Your air conditioner likely needs to be repaired if:

  • You hear banging, squeaking, squealing, or grinding noises
  • Your unit smells like mold/mildew, dirty socks, rotten eggs, or a burning odor
  • Your air conditioner does not produce enough cool air
  • Your unit has poor temperature control
  • Your monthly cooling costs are higher than they should be
  • Your AC unit "short cycles," or constantly turns on and off

Can Your AC Be Repaired?

In most cases, your existing air conditioning unit can be repaired. However, depending on your unit's age, its overall condition, and the cost of replacement parts, repairs may not always be the most cost-effective option. Just like an old car, your AC unit will eventually reach a point in its lifespan when it no longer makes financial sense to continue to pay for expensive repairs.

Generally speaking, air conditioning repairs are usually appropriate under any of the following circumstances:

  • Your air conditioner is less than 10 years old
  • Your air conditioner is still covered under manufacturer warranty
  • (Cost of repairs) x (Age of your unit) < $5,000

If your unit is more than 10 years old or if the cost of repairs multiplied by the age of your unit exceeds $5,000, it is usually more financially prudent to consider replacing your air conditioner instead of repairing it. With that being said, some aging cooling systems have been known to continue to work reliably for well over 15 years with proper care and maintenance. It is best to consult with an air conditioning professional to more accurately estimate your unit's remaining lifespan.

How We Can Help

Our AC repair professionals are trained to identify and fix any problem occurring in your unit, as well as ensuring that the system is running as efficiently as possible. During repairs, we can also perform a full duct cleaning. Any blockage in the ducts leads to a decrease in efficiency, an increase in energy costs, and generally less favorable indoor air quality.

For everyday issues or timely emergencies, we will do all we can to get your system operating as quickly as possible, all while communicating the issues we see and how we think we should proceed. We do this in order to ensure you understand the timeline and avoid any surprise costs upon completion.
