Signs you might need an AC Replacement Soon Your air conditioner might give you some "warning signs" that it's struggling to keep working. Consider reaching out to experts about a pre-emptive air conditioner replacement if: Your AC system is not cooling your home. You are frequently scheduling repairs. Your cooling bills keep rising. Cooled air coming from your vents isn’t as strong. Your AC unit is consistently running. The HVAC system is making odd noises. How do you figure out if you should contemplate an AC repair or an air conditioner replacement? If you're concerned, the Dallas Guide to Air Conditioner Replacement is a good place to begin. Hilton Head Island AC Repair Troubleshooting Checklist What to do before contacting Epperson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an AC Repair Review your breaker box for a tripped breaker. If the breaker is flipped, reset the breaker. It's worth flipping it off and on again even if it doesn't seem like it tripped. Some breakers will trip but the switch won't move much, making it look as though there is a different problem. Older homes could have fuse boxes, in which case you're searching for a blown fuse. Check your thermostat. You want to confirm that there are working batteries in it, it's functioning and that it's set to cool. There is no need call for an AC repair if a couple double AA batteries are the solution. Listen for funny noises coming from your air conditioning system. If you notice clicking, call Epperson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately. Take a look to see if ice is present. If ice is on your AC unit in a Hilton Head Island summer, you might have a refrigerant leak. Sometimes there will be ice on the lines going 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 have the threat of damaging vital components of your air conditioning system. Replace your filter! We all disregard the little chores from time to time. Replacing the air conditioning system's filter is an easy one to forget. Blocked air flow from an overly dirty filter can severely reduce your system's efficiency and lead to extra wear on components, like the blower motor. Evaluate your air vents. Your air conditioning system has to breathe, which means sustaining air flow. If you have blocked air flow from your supply and return vents, it's probable you will experience an AC repair during Hilton Head Island heatwaves down the road. Can you Repair an AC Coil Leak? You bet. A leaking evaporator coil can be simple to spot, but costly to replace. It's because of air conditioner repairs like this that we recommend an AC maintenance plan. Preventative maintenance and ongoing tune-ups can help to decrease the odds of more costly repairs down the road. If it appears that the leak cannot be sealed and repaired, our HVAC technicians are able to replace the faulty component. AC Coil Repair Cost: $400-$1,200 Can you Repair the AC Compressor? Usually if the compressor is shot, you're looking to replace it, not repair it. The compressor in an air conditioner is a vital component and the part itself is one of the more costly pieces of the system. If you have an old unit and the compressor is finished, you might 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 function at one level, which means it will run full force as long as it’s on. The two stage compressors provide two different levels, so it can run a little lower on days that aren’t quite as warm, which helps with efficiency. The most efficient selection is the variable capacity compressor which has the capability to constantly adjust to meet the chosen temperature of the home. When the time happens to get help with your air conditioner, you can count on the qualified technicians at Epperson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

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 lengthy periods of time without being maintained is likely to cause more headaches as time passes. Whether it ends with air conditioner service calls or means a new air conditioning system, lack of maintenance, can be detrimental to the efficiency and operation of your system. 2 AC Component Failure When your air conditioner isn’t working efficiently, the compressor and fan controls could wear out, or several other important components may be impacted. When your system cycles on and off a lot there is unnecessary stress placed on these internal parts, causing improper operation or premature failure. 3 Thermostat Problems From a dead battery to a thermostat sensor that isn’t calibrated appropriately, there are many thermostat problems that could happen. If it has been a while since you last replaced your thermostat batteries, it could be time to do so in order to avoid any issues with the settings you selected. 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 broken or clogged with algae or ice. Call one of our friendly service technicians if you suspect something isn’t right with your pump.

Mini-split AC units are great options for historic homes that do not have the necessary space for ductwork, hard to heat and cool spaces like garages or new additions where the AC system does not currently exist. Epperson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can repair, replace, and install ductless mini-split air conditioning systems of any make and model. In the Hilton Head Island community, we have a lot of newer homes and more are built every day. Sometimes a newer home may still have heating and cooling challenges for specific rooms. We can install a zoning system to help mitigate any problem areas in your home that experience hot and cold spots. Some customers prefer to use a mini-split system for this purpose as well. While we find these systems are reliable, it does happen sometimes that a mini-split system wears out and needs repairs just like a central air conditioning system.
