This is why our qualified technicians will first attempt to repair your damaged air conditioner. If your central AC just won’t work and has no life left to deliver, we'll help you find the appropriate replacement system for your home. The most important factor is that you are aware of all your selections for your air conditioning system, and that your home comfort and safety is kept in mind during the service call. We realize a new air conditioning system is a large investment, so we’ll work with you to determine the best system to meet your needs and budget while keeping the Columbia climate in mind. You could also benefit from rebates and other cash incentives from utility companies, manufacturers, and local and federal governments. Signs you could need an AC Replacement Soon Your air conditioner may give you some "warning signs" that it's struggling to keep working. Consider asking 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 are getting higher. Cooled air coming from your vents is weaker. Your AC unit is constantly running. The HVAC system is making funny noises. How do you figure out if you should think about an AC repair or an air conditioner replacement? If you're worried, the Dallas Guide to Air Conditioner Replacement is a great place to start. Columbia AC Repair Troubleshooting Checklist What to do before reaching out to Midland Air 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. You may want to flip it off and on again even if it doesn't look like it has tripped. Some breakers will trip but the switch can’t move much, making it appear as though there is a separate problem. Older homes could have fuse boxes, in which case you're assessing for a blown fuse. Check your thermostat. You want to ensure that there are working batteries in it, it's on and that it's set to cool. There is no need to bring in the experts if a couple double AA batteries will fix your problem. Listen for strange noises coming from your air conditioning system. If you detect clicking, call Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning right away. Take a look to see if ice is present. If you do see ice on your AC unit in a Columbia summer, it's possible that you have a refrigerant leak. Sometimes there will be ice on the lines running 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 risk damaging vital components of your air conditioning system. Switch your filter! We all disregard the little chores once in a while. 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 needs to breathe, which means maintaining air flow. If you have blocked air flow from your supply and return vents, it's probable you will have an AC repair during Columbia heatwaves in the near future. Can you Repair an AC Coil Leak? You bet. A leaking evaporator coil can be easily noticeable, but pricey to replace. It's because of air conditioner repairs like this that we suggest an AC maintenance plan. Preventative maintenance and ongoing tune-ups can help to reduce the chance 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 going to replace it, not repair it. The compressor in an air conditioner is a vital component and the part itself is one of the costlier pieces of the system. If you have an old unit and the compressor is done, you will possibly 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 operate 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 have milder temps, which helps with efficiency. The most efficient choice is the variable capacity compressor which has the power to constantly adapt to meet the preferred temperature of the home. When the time happens to get help with your air conditioner, you can count on the qualified technicians at Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. You can reach us at 803-399-7208 and we’ll be happy to answer your questions or set up 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 work over lengthy periods of time without being maintained is likely to cause challenges as time goes on. Whether it ends with 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 might 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 correctly, there are a host of thermostat problems that could happen. If it has been a while since you last switched your thermostat batteries, it might be time to do so in order to dodge any concerns with the settings you have in place. 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. Contact one of our friendly service technicians if you think something is wrong with your pump. What you can do to get your AC Repair Faster Everyone wants relief as soon as possible, especially in a sweltering Columbia heatwave.

If you hear in the forecast that next week is going to be hot and you know your air conditioner is old and not operating as efficiently, reach out to Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning and book a tune-up as soon as possible. Make sure you discuss your concerns and anything different you've observed about your air conditioning system. This will help us inspect anything that could cause a catastrophic failure during hot weather. Take part in one of Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning's Service Plans. Not only do you have the extra benefit of receiving regular tune-ups for your air conditioner, which could stop the need for an AC repair entirely. If something does occur, you’re already top of mind. Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioning Repair If it chills the air, we can find a solution. Mini-split AC units are ideal options for historic homes that do not have room for ductwork, tough to heat and cool spaces like garages or new additions where the AC system does not currently exist. Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is qualified to repair, replace, and install ductless mini-split air conditioning systems of any make and model. In the Columbia metro, we have a lot of newer homes and more are being constructed every day. Occasionally a newer home may still have heating and cooling problems for specific rooms. We can install a zoning system to help ease any problem areas in your home that experience hot and cold spots. Some customers prefer to use a mini-split system for this problem as well. While we find these units are reliable, it does happen sometimes that a mini-split system wears out and demands repairs just like a central air conditioning system.
