Signs You Need AC Repair

Detecting the early warning signs that your air conditioning unit requires repair can help you identify small issues before they become full-on breakdowns, saving you time and money and keeping your home comfortable even during the hottest months. 

If you're experiencing any of the following issues, it might be time to contact Climatemakers of VA for a professional evaluation:

  • Unusual noises: Squealing, grinding, or rattling noises from your AC unit can indicate a mechanical problem or a loose part that needs immediate attention.
  • Insufficient airflow: Poor airflow often suggests a blockage in your air conditioning system, which could stem from a dirty air filter, a faulty blower motor, or an issue with the ducts themselves.
  • Warm air: If your air conditioning unit is blowing warm air, it could be due to a refrigerant leak, a problem with the thermostat, or an issue with the compressor.
  • Frequent cycles: Your AC should go through routine cooling cycles, regardless of the weather. If you notice it's cycling on and off more frequently, it's time for a professional check-up.
  • High humidity: During spring and summer, you can expect sticky weather outside, but that doesn't mean you should experience high humidity levels indoors. If your air conditioning system can't keep moisture levels within a comfortable range, it requires adjustment or repair.
  • Foul odors: If you detect unpleasant odors emanating from your HVAC system, prompt service is necessary. A quick diagnostic visit can identify whether your system needs thorough cleaning or a more advanced repair to eliminate any foul smells.
  • Water leaks: Any leakage or pooling water around your air conditioning unit is a telltale sign of a problem. Leaks can indicate a refrigerant issue or a problem with the AC's condensate drain.

If you notice strange noises, inconsistent cooling, or any other AC trouble, call Climatemakers of VA, your comfort allies. Our NATE-certified technicians are the best in the business, and we're committed to excellence. We'll diagnose and fix your AC quickly so you can get back to enjoying a cool and comfortable home.

Common HVAC Problems and What Causes Them

In our decades of experience at Climatemakers of VA, we've encountered a vast range of HVAC issues, from simple fixes to complex system overhauls. Understanding the common problems and their underlying causes can empower homeowners to take proactive steps toward maintaining their systems' efficiency and longevity. 

Here are some of the most frequent challenges we see:

  • Dirty filters: One of the simplest yet most overlooked aspects of HVAC maintenance is replacing or cleaning the filters. Clogged filters restrict airflow, forcing your system to work harder and less efficiently, leading to increased energy costs and potential system overheating.
  • Thermostat malfunctions: Incorrect thermostat settings or a malfunctioning thermostat can lead to discomfort in your home and excessive energy consumption. Whether it's an old, non-programmable thermostat failing to communicate correctly with your HVAC system or incorrect settings, these issues can easily disrupt your home's comfort levels. 
  • Ignition problems: For heating systems, ignition or pilot control issues can prevent your furnace from turning on or may cause it to shut off unexpectedly. These problems can stem from a range of issues, including faulty electrical components, dirty pilot orifices, or thermocouple problems, leading to inconsistent heat or a lack of heat altogether. 
  • Wear and tear: Like any mechanical system, HVAC units are subject to wear and tear over time. Components such as belts and bearings may wear out, leading to airflow problems, overheating, or mechanical failures. Regular maintenance can identify and replace worn parts before they cause more significant issues. 
  • Refrigerant leaks: Air conditioners and heat pumps rely on refrigerant to cool your home. A leak in the refrigerant lines can decrease the efficiency of your system, resulting in higher energy bills and insufficient cooling. These leaks require professional attention to be repaired and the system recharged adequately. 
  • Drainage issues: The condensate drain line can become clogged with algae, dirt, and debris over time. This can lead to water damage in your home, high humidity levels, and potential microbial growth. Routine checks can ensure the drain line remains clear. 
  • Electrical component failure: Capacitors, contactors, and other electrical components can fail due to age or power surges. These failures can interrupt the power flow to your HVAC unit, preventing it from starting or operating correctly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any local regulations or permits required for AC installation in Chesapeake, VA?

All air conditioning installations are subject to local building codes and regulations. Homeowners are required to obtain a permit prior to the commencement of any AC installation project. 

Can the salty air from the Chesapeake Bay area affect my outdoor AC unit, and how can I protect it?

Yes, the salty air in coastal areas like the Chesapeake Bay can impact outdoor air conditioning units. Regular maintenance is key to protecting your AC, including professional cleaning and inspection to remove salt deposits and prevent corrosion. Installing corrosion-resistant coatings or using protective covers during the off-season can also protect your unit from salty air. 

How does Chesapeake's pollen season affect indoor air quality, and what AC filters are recommended?

During Chesapeake's pollen season, typically from early spring through late fall, indoor air quality can significantly deteriorate as pollen enters homes through open windows, doors, and air conditioning systems. This can exacerbate allergies and respiratory issues for residents. To combat this, we recommend upgrading your AC system to high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters. These filters are designed to capture fine particles, including pollen, dust mites, and other allergens, improving indoor air quality.
