Air Conditioning Repair FAQs
Learn the answers to frequently asked questions about air conditioning and the functionality of air conditioner units below.
How can I tell if my air conditioning unit is broken?
There are multiple signs to look for to tell if a unit is broken after it stopped working. If the A/C unit is blowing warm air, check to see if your thermostat is on. Your unit may have a faulty compressor and condenser or a low refrigerant charge. If the A/C will not turn on, power may not be reaching the unit from the thermostat. Check the circuit breaker or replace the battery in the thermostat. If this does not work, call us and we will get your air conditioning unit up and running again.
What do I do if my HVAC unit is running but not cooling?
If your HVAC unit is running but not cooling, then it might be a sign that there is a problem with the air filter. The air filter is important because it keeps dust and debris from getting into the unit and causing problems. This can lead to reduced airflow, which in turn causes the unit to overheat and increase its energy consumption.
To find out if this is the problem, take a look at your air filter. If it’s dirty or clogged up with debris, remove it and replace it with a new one. This can help you quickly get your HVAC back up to speed.
However, there are many other issues that cause this problem such as dirty coils, faulty wiring, or refrigerant leaks. Our technicians are able to address these problems if your HVAC is not cooling your home after a filter change but it still turns on.
How do I reset my air conditioning unit?
Turn off your A/C at the thermostat, reset the circuit breaker for your unit, wait 30 seconds, and then turn the A/C unit back on. If this does not work, call Anchor Mechanical. We will help you fix your air conditioning unit as soon as possible.
How long does it take for AC to get fixed?
The answer to this question is not always straightforward and it depends on a few different factors. For example, the most common reason for AC repair is a leak in the system. This could be anything from a leaky valve to an AC coil leak, or even an entire refrigerant line leak. In most cases, leaks are something that a qualified service technician can fix in about an hour at most.
On the other hand, it may take anywhere between 3 to 5 days to perform a full system repair on an AC unit. To change out a unit it only takes 1 day. However, ductwork is time intensive to replace, which is why full system repairs may take multiple days to complete.
How long does it take to cool a house after AC repair?
Your house should cool by 10 degrees every 3 hours after we repair your AC unit. Repair time may vary based on the size of your AC, the size of your house, and the age of your AC unit. A few hours post AC repair, you should feel a noticeable difference in the temperature of your house.
