You really need a working air conditioner in Tucson. If your AC stops working at 6 PM on a Saturday, you probably dread the thought of going a whole weekend without cool air.

How Can I Tell if My Air Conditioner is Working?

If you set your thermostat to a comfortable temperature and your home maintains that temperature, your air conditioner is working. If something’s off, here’s what you should check before you give us a call.

Check your Filters

Your air conditioner has filters that keep dust and debris from circulating through your home. If the filter is full, it throttles the amount of air that can come through. Check the filters in your home. They’re usually located on a wall and ceiling behind a large grill. If the filters are full of dust, swap them for new filters of the same size.

Check Your Circuit Breaker

If your air conditioner won’t power on, it could be tripping the breaker. Take a look at your breaker box to make sure the breaker that powers your air conditioner is on. If it isn’t on the fully “on” position, it may be tripped. To reset it you must switch it to the fully “off” position, then switch it back to “on”. If that does not work, then you may need us to help you.

 

 Listen to Your AC Unit

Your air conditioner will make a noise when it kicks on. Stand near your air conditioning unit. If you hear the hum or whirring noise of the compressor and fan, that means it’s working and  should produce cold air. If you don’t hear anything, if you hear loud noises, or if no cold air comes out of the registers something’s wrong. Give us a call.

Common Problems with Air Conditioning Units in Tucson

There are a lot of components to your air conditioning unit, and any component can require repair or maintenance. Some issues are more common than others. These are the issues that Heatwave commonly repairs for homeowners in Tucson.  

Compressor Issues

 The compressor is the most important part of your air conditioning unit. It compresses the refrigerant that circulates through your air conditioning system. This is what keeps your home cool. If your compressor isn’t working, your air conditioner can’t blow cold air.

Leaking Lines

 Your compressor circulates cooled air through your home. The refrigerant lines carry a special gas that cools down the air. If the lines that carry that gas are leaking, your air conditioning unit will not keep your home cool.

Sometimes, a low refrigerant charge will cause coils to freeze. Refrigerant is a chemical. It’s better to let us come out and handle the issue.

Water Damage Issues

Condensate water leaking from air conditioning can cause mold to form. When mold forms, it can damage your walls and build up inside of your air conditioning unit. This is a potentially dangerous situation. If there’s mold in your air conditioner, your family will breathe in the mold spores that are circulating around your home.

Replacing the affected parts of your air conditioning system will make the air in your home safe again. You might also need the help of a contractor to repair water damage to your home.

 Damaged Fans or Capacitors

If your fan motor is moving slowly or rattling, the issue is either with the fan itself or with the capacitor. The capacitor is a component that keeps your air conditioner’s fan running. The two work together to help the blower circulate cold air throughout your home.

Should I Repair or Replace My HVAC Unit?

Our HVAC technicians diagnose and evaluate the condition of your air conditioner. Usually, the problem is easy to solve. If your unit is less than ten years old and it isn’t significantly damaged, a repair is usually the best solution.

If your unit is more than 10 years old, or if the cost of repairs exceeds 40% of the cost of replacement, you’re better off getting a new HVAC unit. Newer HVAC units can save you money over time. They’re much more efficient than older air conditioning systems. You can save anywhere between 20% and 40% on your energy costs by upgrading to a better unit.

After one of our certified HVAC technicians inspects your unit, we’ll be able to explain your options for repair or replacement.

How Much Does it Cost to Repair an AC in Tucson?

First things first: you need a diagnosis. We’ll send an experienced HVAC technician to your home to examine your air conditioner. This is a flat fee of $99, which can be applied towards the repair or replacement. The cost of the repair will depend on what needs to be done to repair the unit. Most Tucson homeowners can expect to spend between $200 and $400 on HVAC repair.

Labor intensive or complicated repairs can cost as much as $2,000 to $5000.00. At that point, it’s probably more cost effective to replace your HVAC unit and install a new, modern, and more efficient air conditioner.

Recommended by a coworker that has used them for years, this company is by far the friendliest and best service from an AC company I have ever had out to my house. Other companies over the years have had me waiting all day and have costs an arm and a leg. Talked to the father Danby phone, and the son Daniel came out quick, put up with all my dumb questions, and had me fixed in an hour. The price was amazing and no games! I have found my go-to AC guys! Highly recommend!
