If your central AC just won’t work and has no life left to give, we'll help you find the best replacement system for your home. The most important part of the process is that you have all your choices for your air conditioning system, and that your home comfort and safety is kept in mind during the service call. We understand a new air conditioning system is a big investment, so we’ll work with you to identify the best selection to meet your needs and budget while keeping the Richmond weather in mind.

Signs you may need an AC Replacement Soon Your air conditioner may 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 air conditioning system is not cooling your home. You are calling for AC repairs more often. Your cooling bills have been increasing. Cooled air coming from your vents is losing strength. Your AC unit is constantly running. The HVAC system is making weird noises. How do you know if you should contemplate an AC repair or an air conditioner replacement? If you're uneasy, the Dallas Guide to Air Conditioner Replacement is a good place to start. Richmond AC Repair Troubleshooting Checklist What to do before contacting Eveready Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an AC Repair Review your breaker box for a tripped breaker. If the breaker is flipped, you can try to reset it. You may want to flip 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 separate problem. Older homes might have fuse boxes, in which case you're searching for a blown fuse. Inspect your thermostat. You want to make sure that there are working batteries in it, it's operating and that it's set to cool. There is no need for an AC repair call if a couple double AA batteries are the solution. Listen for strange noises coming from your air conditioning system. If you notice clicking, call Eveready Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately. Look for ice. If ice is on your AC unit in a Richmond summer, you might have a refrigerant leak. Sometimes you can find 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 should be repaired quickly, or you risk damaging critical components of your air conditioning system. Replace your filter! We all neglect the little chores sometimes. 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 result in extra wear on components, like the blower motor. Examine your air vents. Your air conditioning system needs to breathe, which means maintaining air flow. If you have blocked air flow from your supply and return vents, it's likely you will face an AC repair during Richmond heatwaves in the near future. Can you Repair an AC Coil Leak? We sure can. A leaking evaporator coil can be easy to spot, but pricey 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 reduce the chance of more costly repairs down the road. In the event that the leak cannot be sealed and repaired, our HVAC technicians have the capability to replace the faulty component. AC Coil Repair Cost: $400-$1,200 Can you Repair the AC Compressor? Typically 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 gone, you might 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 offer 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 choice is the variable capacity compressor which has the ability to constantly correct itself to meet the preferred temperature of the home.

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 more headaches as time passes. Whether it results in air conditioner service calls or it requires a new air conditioning system, lack of maintenance, is harmful to the efficiency and operation of your system. 2 AC Component Failure When your air conditioner isn’t running 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, resulting in improper operation or premature failure. 3 Thermostat Problems From a dead battery to a thermostat sensor that isn’t calibrated properly, there are lots of thermostat problems that could occur. If it has been a while since you last swapped out your thermostat batteries, it could be time to do so in order to escape any concerns with the settings you have in place. 4 Condensation in your Air Conditioner Your air conditioning unit will produce 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. Contact one of our friendly service technicians if you suspect something seems off with your pump.

Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioning Repair If it helps decrease your indoor temps, we can help. Mini-split AC units are ideal options for historic homes that do not have the necessary space for ductwork, difficult to heat and cool spaces like garages or new additions where the AC system does not currently extend. Eveready Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can repair, replace, and install ductless mini-split air conditioning systems of any make and model. In the Richmond metro, we have a lot of newer homes and more are going up every day. Sometimes a newer home might still have heating and cooling problems 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 choose 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. How to Pick the Best HVAC Repair Company When you start looking for an HVAC repair company, take a look at how many years the company has been in business. A well-established HVAC company will typically have the most qualified HVAC contractors on board and a larger number of clients who could be references.
