Gaithersburg AC Repair Troubleshooting Checklist What to do before calling Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an AC Repair Check your breaker box for a tripped breaker. If the breaker is flipped, reset the breaker. You can flip it off and on again even if it doesn't look like it has tripped. Some breakers will trip but the switch doesn’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 ensure 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 will fix your problem. Listen for funny noises coming from your air conditioning system. If you notice clicking, call Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately. Look for ice. If there is ice on your AC unit in a Gaithersburg summer, you might have a refrigerant leak. Sometimes you can find ice on the lines leading from your condenser (the big air conditioning unit outside your home with a fan on top) into your house. Refrigerant leaks need to be repaired quickly, or you have the threat of damaging critical components of your air conditioning system. Switch 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 excessively dirty filter can severely reduce your system's efficiency and lead to extra wear on components, like the blower motor. Check your air vents. Your air conditioning system needs to breathe, which means preserving air flow. If you have blocked air flow from your supply and return vents, it's possible you will have an AC repair during Gaithersburg heatwaves down the road. Can you Repair an AC Coil Leak? We sure can. A leaking evaporator coil can be simple to spot, but pricey to replace. It's because of air conditioner repairs like this that we advocate for an AC maintenance plan. Preventative maintenance and regular tune-ups can help to decrease the odds of more costly repairs down the road. In the event that the leak cannot be sealed and repaired, our HVAC technicians can 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 planning 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 gone, you will possibly want to replace the unit. There are three styles 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 benefits efficiency. The most efficient selection is the variable capacity compressor which has the ability to constantly correct itself to meet the chosen temperature of the home. When the time happens to get help with your air conditioner, you can rely on the qualified professionals at Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. Contact us at 301-476-4577 and we’ll be happy to answer your questions or schedule an appointment. AC Compressor Repair Cost: $1,350-$1,800 4 Things That Lead to AC Repair in Dallas 1 Lack of Air Conditioner Maintenance Letting your air conditioner operate over extended periods of time without being maintained is likely to cause problems as time elapses. Whether it results in air conditioner service calls or means a new air conditioning system, lack of maintenance, negatively impacts 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 avoidable stress placed on these internal parts, which can cause improper operation or premature failure. 3 Thermostat Problems From a dead battery to a thermostat sensor that isn’t calibrated properly, there are a host of thermostat problems that could occur. If it has been a while since you last replaced your thermostat batteries, it might be time to do so in order to dodge any problems with the settings you chose. 4 Condensation in your Air Conditioner Your air conditioning unit will create a large amount of condensation. Some air conditioners have an electric condensate pump with tubing that can be damaged or clogged with algae or ice. Call one of our friendly service technicians if you believe something isn’t right with your pump.

Mini-split AC units are great selections for historic homes that do not have the option for ductwork, hard to heat and cool spaces like garages or new additions where the AC system does not currently reach. Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can repair, replace, and install ductless mini-split air conditioning systems of any make and model. In the Gaithersburg community, we have a lot of newer homes and more are being constructed every day. Sometimes a newer home could 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 have hot and cold spots. Some customers decide to use a mini-split system for this problem as well. While we find these solutions are reliable, it does happen sometimes that a mini-split system wears out and demands repairs just like a central air conditioning system.
