Signs You Need AC Repair Service

  • No cool air: If you’re not getting any air at all, it could be a problem with your blower fan. But if the air isn’t cooled, then it could be your evaporator coil or an air filter that needs a cleaning.
  • Poor airflow: If you’re getting some air, but not the amount that you’re used to, then it’s likely your ducts. You could be losing some treated air, or maybe there’s something in your ductwork that’s impeding your airflow.
  • Unusual noises: All AC units make some noise, but if you’re hearing something that’s new, abrupt, or particularly loud, then call in our Charlotte AC repair experts.
  • Strange odors: A burning smell coming from your vents in the summertime usually means something is wrong in your unit.
  • Accumulation of moisture: As cooling air requires a bit of condensation, you’ll sometimes get mold and mildew growth in your unit or ductwork as a result.
  • Faulty thermostat: If your AC isn’t cooling to the desired temperature, it could be your thermostat that’s the culprit.
  • Excess cooling costs: When your AC gets older, it might cool to the amount you want but may need more electricity in order to do so, which will cost you.
  • Frequent cycling: Short-cycling is the result of a compressor that’s on the fritz. Either that or your AC could be too big for your home.
  • Extended cooling times: If it’s taking longer to cool than usual, call in our AC repair specialists to take a look and see what’s going on.
  • Reduced indoor air quality: Like efficiency, older AC units can negatively affect your indoor air quality in a few ways, so it’s good to subscribe to routine AC maintenance.

Early detection and action can prevent more severe problems from occurring and save you money on your energy bills. That’s why it’s very important to call the expert team at Roby as soon as you notice any of these issues. After diagnosing the source of the problem, we will advise you on your best options for resolving the issue. Whether you choose to repair or replace the air conditioner, we’ll go to work to complete the job in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

Why Is My AC Not Blowing Cold Air?

  • Dirty air filter: One of the most common reasons that you aren’t experiencing proper airflow from your AC unit is due to a dirty air filter. When there’s too much debris in your filter, it does not allow room for air to move over the evaporator coils, which can cause them to frost over, restricting the flow of air.
  • Control board malfunction: The control board works together with the thermistor to tell the compressor to turn off or on based on the temperature you have selected on your thermostat. If the control board is defective in any way, no power can be sent to the compressor, resulting in the lack of cold air.

There are other reasons why your AC may not be working properly, and it’s always best to consult with an experienced air conditioning technician before trying to troubleshoot anything on your own.

Air Conditioning Repair vs. Replacement

When your AC goes down, there are a couple of options unless you want to brave the summer heat without AC. You could either replace the unit or consider AC repair. While repair might at first seem like the more cost-effective decision, it’s actually more expensive in the long run in the following situations.

1. Your AC is older than 10 years: On average, an AC unit usually survives for eight to 12 years, depending on how it’s used, the surrounding environment, and how often it’s maintained. If it’s much older than that, don’t sink more money repairing a dying unit and make the switch.

2. It needs one repair after another: Our Charlotte AC repair team is always willing and able to come in and get your AC back in working order, but if you need us to fix it every year, those repair calls will add up. At some point, another AC repair is going to cost more than replacement when you consider a new unit is on the horizon so consider replacement before it gets to that point.

3. The unit required R-22 Freon: Because of the 2020 Freon ban, AC units that depend on the banned coolant are only going to get more expensive to run as Freon becomes increasingly scarce.
