This is why our experts will first try to repair your malfunctioning air conditioner. 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 thing is that you are aware of all your options for your air conditioning system, and that your home comfort and safety is taken into consideration during the service call.

Signs you might need an AC Replacement Soon Your air conditioner could give you some "warning signs" that it's near the end of its life. Consider asking about a pre-emptive air conditioner replacement if: Your air conditioner is not cooling your home. You are frequently scheduling repairs. Your cooling bills have been increasing. Cooled air coming from your vents is weaker. Your AC unit is consistently running. The HVAC system is making odd noises. How do you figure out if you should contemplate an AC repair or an air conditioner replacement? If you're uneasy, the Dallas Guide to Air Conditioner Replacement is an ideal place to start. Grand Island AC Repair Troubleshooting Checklist What to do before reaching out to McElroy Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an AC Repair Take a look at your breaker box for a tripped breaker. If the breaker is flipped, you can try to reset it. It's worth flipping it off and on again even if it doesn't seem like it tripped. Some breakers will trip but the switch doesn’t move much, making it seem as though there is a different problem. Older homes might have fuse boxes, in which case you're assessing for a blown fuse. Examine your thermostat. You want to make sure that there are working batteries in it, it's on and that it's set to cool. There is no need for an AC repair call if a couple double AA batteries will fix your problem. Listen for strange noises coming from your air conditioning system. If you hear clicking, call McElroy Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning straightaway. See if there is ice. If you do see ice on your AC unit in a Grand Island summer, it's possible that you have a refrigerant leak. Sometimes there will be 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 vital components of your air conditioning system. Replace your filter! We all neglect 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 excessively dirty filter can brutally reduce your system's efficiency and lead to extra wear on components, like the blower motor. Evaluate your air vents. Your air conditioning system has to breathe, which means preserving air flow. If you have blocked air flow from your supply and return vents, it's likely you will have an AC repair during Grand Island heatwaves in the near future. Can you Repair an AC Coil Leak? You bet. A leaking evaporator coil can be easily noticeable, but expensive 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 prevent 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? 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 costlier 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 work at one level, which means it will run full force as long as it’s on. The two stage compressors have two different levels, so it can run a little lower on days that are cooler, which helps with efficiency. The most efficient option is the variable capacity compressor which has the power to constantly adapt to meet the desired temperature of the home. When the time comes to get help with your air conditioner, you can depend on the qualified technicians at McElroy Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. Give us a call at 308-210-4398 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 Result in AC Repair in Dallas 1 Lack of Air Conditioner Maintenance Letting your air conditioner operate over long periods of time without being maintained is likely to cause problems as time goes on. Whether it ends with air conditioner service calls or it requires 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 running efficiently, the compressor and fan controls could wear out, or several other significant components may be impacted. When your system cycles on and off a lot there is unnecessary stress placed on these internal parts, causing improper operation or premature failure. 3 Thermostat Problems From a dead battery to a thermostat sensor that isn’t calibrated appropriately, there are a host of thermostat problems that could occur. If it has been a while since you last switched your thermostat batteries, it may be time to do so in order to dodge any issues with the settings you chose. 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 broken or clogged with algae or ice. Contact one of our friendly service technicians if you think something seems off with your pump.

Mini-split AC units are good options for historic homes that do not have the necessary space for ductwork, tough to heat and cool spaces like garages or new additions where the AC system does not currently reach. McElroy 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 Grand Island metro, we have a lot of newer homes and more are being constructed every day. Sometimes a newer home could still have heating and cooling issues 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 choose to use a mini-split system for this purpose as well. While we find these systems are reliable, it does happen sometimes that a mini-split system wears out and demands repairs just like a central air conditioning system.
