This is why our qualified technicians will first try to repair your broken air conditioner. If your central AC just won’t work and has no life left to give, we'll help you find the right replacement system for your home. The most important factor is that you realize all your selections for your air conditioning system, and that your home comfort and safety is considered during the service call. We realize a new air conditioning system is a important investment, so we’ll work with you to determine the best selection to meet your needs and budget while keeping the Elkhart environment in mind. You may also benefit from rebates and other cash incentives offered by utility companies, manufacturers, and local and federal governments. Signs you may need an AC Replacement Soon Your air conditioner could give you some "warning signs" that it's struggling to keep working. Consider asking about a pre-emptive air conditioner replacement if: Your air conditioner is not cooling your home. You are calling for AC repairs more often. Your cooling bills have been increasing. Cooled air coming from your vents is weaker. Your AC unit is always 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 concerned, the Dallas Guide to Air Conditioner Replacement is a good place to read up. Elkhart AC Repair Troubleshooting Checklist What to do before reaching out to BW/Cook Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an AC Repair Review 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 appear to have tripped. Some breakers will trip but the switch won't move much, making it seem as though there is a separate problem. Older homes might have fuse boxes, in which case you're searching for a blown fuse. Examine your thermostat. You want to confirm that there are working batteries in it, it's operating and that it's set to cool. There is no need for an AC repair call if a couple double AA batteries are the solution. Listen for odd noises coming from your air conditioning system. If you notice clicking, call BW/Cook Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately. Take a look to see if ice is present. If you do see ice on your AC unit in a Elkhart summer, you could have a refrigerant leak. Sometimes there will be ice on the lines going 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 risk damaging critical components of your air conditioning system. Change out your filter! We all disregard the little chores from time to time. 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 must breathe, which means preserving air flow. If you have blocked air flow from your supply and return vents, it's possible you will experience an AC repair during Elkhart heatwaves in the near future. Can you Repair an AC Coil Leak? We sure can. A leaking evaporator coil can be simple to spot, but costly to replace. It's because of air conditioner repairs like this that we advocate for an AC maintenance plan. Preventative maintenance and consistent tune-ups can help to reduce the chance of more costly repairs down the road. In the event 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? Typically if the compressor is shot, you're looking to replace it, not repair it. The compressor in an air conditioner is a critical component and the part itself is one of the pricier pieces of the system. If you have an old unit and the compressor is finished, 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 offer two different levels, so it can run a little lower on days that aren’t quite as warm, which benefits efficiency. The most efficient selection is the variable capacity compressor which has the capability to constantly adapt to meet the desired temperature of the home. When the time comes to get help with your air conditioner, you can rely on the qualified technicians at BW/Cook Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. You can reach us at 574-218-6404 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 End in AC Repair in Dallas 1 Lack of Air Conditioner Maintenance Letting your air conditioner work over extended periods of time without being maintained is likely to cause more headaches as time elapses. Whether it results in air conditioner service calls or you needing a new air conditioning system, lack of maintenance, can be detrimental to 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 vital components may be impacted. When your system cycles on and off a lot there is unnecessary stress placed on these internal parts, which can cause improper operation or premature failure. 3 Thermostat Problems From a dead battery to a thermostat sensor that isn’t calibrated appropriately, there are lots 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 escape any problems with the settings you chose. 4 Condensation in your Air Conditioner Your air conditioning unit will make 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. Call 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 Elkhart heatwave.

Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioning Repair If it cools, we can find a solution. Mini-split AC units are good options for historic homes that do not have the necessary space for ductwork, hard to heat and cool spaces like garages or new additions where the AC system does not currently reach. BW/Cook Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can repair, replace, and install ductless mini-split air conditioning systems of any make and model. In the Elkhart area, we have many newer homes and more are built every day. Once in a while a newer home might 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 contain hot and cold spots. Some customers decide 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.
