Affordable And Dependable AC Repair | Scottsdale, AZ

Although the long, hot summer days are probably the last thing from your thoughts right now, you shouldn’t neglect your air conditioner. Sure, during the cooler months of the year you don’t need your air conditioner, but regular maintenance and AC repair is less expensive and gets your house ready for the heat.

One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating of Phoenix fervently advises all of its Scottsdale, AZ clients to be ahead of the game and have it serviced before everyone in the region is frantically trying to remain cool.

Regular Service Protects Your HVAC System

According to One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating of Phoenix, having your air conditioner regularly maintained is the best way to avoid needing a costly AC repair. Doing this ahead of the hot summer months ensures the unit is protected during the winter.

When we conduct a regular service we identify any minor issues, enabling you to address them before any extensive damage is done. Another benefit of routine, professional service is that your unit will perform more effectively, lowering your energy costs.

Take Care of Your HVAC System

You may take some steps to prevent the need for AC repairs, including performing some simple maintenance tasks on your own.

  • Check the air filters
  • Check the air ducts for any leaks
  • Clean the outside unit

The air filter cleans the air in your Scottsdale, AZ home of dust and other impurities. A clogged air filter has to be cleaned or replaced frequently to perform its job effectively. The airflow over the evaporator coils will be impeded by a filthy air filter, which might result in the coils of the air conditioner freezing.

You might also look for damage in your air ducts. Your air conditioner can lose up to 30% of its energy output due to weak joints and gaps between the air ducts. Another potential issue is it’s probable that the condenser and cooling fins are dirty or coated with dust. A central air conditioning unit often has moss and weeds covering them preventing the heat from being adequately expelled outside your home. These should be regularly cleaned and debris routinely cleared away.

A clean unit is important because the other components of the air conditioner have to work harder since obstructions slow down heat conduction. Burned-out components are frequently the reason an AC repair is necessary.

Signs It’s Time to Call One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating of Phoenix

Increased electricity costs, an air conditioner turning on and off frequently, ice on the evaporator coils, a lack of effective cooling, high humidity, and weird noises are all indicators that you may need a professional AC repair.

Recently, energy prices have increased significantly, therefore it’s critical to discover strategies to lower them. Because each component will have seen wear and tear, decreasing its efficiency, an older air conditioner will cost more to operate.

As a result of the components having to work harder to maintain the cooling effect, there is a greater chance that they may wear out and require replacement during an AC repair. If your air conditioner is more than 10 years old and you see that your operating expenses are going up, you might want to think about getting a replacement.

Over time, the investment expenditure will be recouped as the new unit becomes more cost-effective to operate. We at One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating of Phoenix are delighted to assist you in determining which unit best suits your requirements and price range.

Unit turns off and on too often

You may have a short-cycling issue if your air conditioner shuts off before you reach the ideal temperature. The compressor is typically turned on for ten minutes during the 20-minute cooling cycle, and then it is turned off for an additional ten minutes. The most effective cooling cycle is made possible by this. Premature switching by the compressor increases the likelihood that it may malfunction from overuse and require AC repair.

Frost on the evaporator coils

The heated air that is fanned over the evaporator coils causes them to absorb heat. The coils are prevented from freezing over by this warmth. The coils are not collecting enough heat from the warm air if frost and ice start to build on them. There are various possible causes for this, including unclean air filters that prevent warm air from passing over the coils, a malfunctioning fan, or insufficient coolant levels in the coils. The air conditioner will shut off and be inoperable for up to 24 hours until the coils defrost if the coils ice over.

Low cooling effect

Less cooling from your air conditioner will result from low coolant levels in the evaporator coils. The coils in the air conditioner won’t be able to extract as much heat from the warm air if the coolant level is off. Less cold air will be blasted back into your house. A malfunctioning fan and dirty air filters will further lessen the cooling capability.

High humidity

When unclean air filters or frozen coils diminish the cooling effect, warmer air will be blown back into your house, and you’ll experience a greater sense of humidity because hotter air retains more moisture. High humidity levels are a red flag that it’s time for an AC repair in your Scottsdale, AZ home.

Strange sounds

If you hear any grinding or squealing, your fan belt or bearings may be worn out. Any loud banging sounds may be the result of a bent or loose blade impacting the interior of your unit. These noises are a sign you need an immediate AC repair from One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating of Phoenix.
