If your central AC has just given up and has no life left to give, we'll help you find the right replacement system for your home. The most important part of the process is that you realize all your selections for your air conditioning system, and that your home comfort and safety is taken into consideration during the service call.

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 contacting an HVAC technician 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 losing strength. Your AC unit is consistently running. The HVAC system is making funny noises. How do you know 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 good place to read up. Buffalo AC Repair Troubleshooting Checklist What to do before contacting Sunbeam Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an AC Repair Review your breaker box for a tripped breaker. If the breaker is flipped, try resetting 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 doesn’t move much, making it seem as though there is another problem. Older homes might have fuse boxes, in which case you're assessing for a blown fuse. Check your thermostat. You want to make sure that there are working batteries in it, it's functioning and that it's set to cool. There is no need to bring in the experts if a couple double AA batteries are the solution. Listen for strange noises coming from your air conditioning system. If you hear clicking, call Sunbeam Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning straightaway. Take a look to see if ice is present. If there is ice on your AC unit in a Buffalo 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 should be repaired quickly, or you have the threat of damaging vital components of your air conditioning system. Change out 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 a very dirty filter can harshly reduce your system's efficiency and offer extra wear on components, like the blower motor. Check 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 experience an AC repair during Buffalo heatwaves at some point in the future. Can you Repair an AC Coil Leak? We sure can. A leaking evaporator coil can be simple to spot, 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 have the capability 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 gone, you may 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 work 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 option is the variable capacity compressor which has the capability to constantly adjust to meet the preferred temperature of the home. When the time comes to get help with your air conditioner, you can depend on the qualified experts at Sunbeam Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

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 lengthy periods of time without being maintained is likely to cause more headaches as time elapses. Whether it results in 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 operating efficiently, the compressor and fan controls may wear out, or several other significant components may be impacted. When your system cycles on and off a lot there is preventable 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 correctly, 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 create a large amount of condensation. Some air conditioners have an electric condensate pump with tubing that can be impaired or clogged with algae or ice. Contact one of our friendly service technicians if you suspect something seems off with your pump.

Mini-split AC units are good options for historic homes that do not have room for ductwork, hard to heat and cool spaces like garages or new additions where the AC system does not currently extend. Sunbeam Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can repair, replace, and install ductless mini-split air conditioning systems of any make and model. In the Buffalo area, we have a lot of newer homes and more are being constructed every day. Once in a while a newer home may still have heating and cooling challenges for specific rooms. We can install a zoning system to help ease any problem areas in your home that contain hot and cold spots. Some customers choose to use a mini-split system for this purpose 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.
