When you are getting ready for the hot weather ahead, part of your preparation will be to call for your home air conditioning system to be serviced. At the start of each cooling season, your system will work more efficiently when it is maintained by a professional HVAC technician. Even when you take good care of your system, there are still a number of common reasons you may need to call for ac repair in Vancouver, WA. Whether your system isn’t getting cool enough, or you notice strange sounds coming from your unit, calling for a repair before your system breaks down completely can save you money in overall repairs.

When Your System is Making Odd Noises

If you turn on your air conditioning system and you hear loud noises, this can be due to a number of reasons. Your duct work will expand and contract as cool air replaces the warm air inside. If the noise is bothersome, you can try opening up a vent or two in your duct work. If you hear a squealing noise coming from your outdoor unit, you may need to have a belt replaced. If you hear noises that you can’t identify, it’s time to call an AC repair technician to come and figure out what the problem is.

If Your System Isn’t Getting Cool Enough

When you turn your system on and the air isn’t getting much cooler, you probably need help with your air conditioning. This could be due to a number of problems. Your thermostat could be set too high, or a sensor could be malfunctioning and throwing off the temperature sensing of your system. You may be out of coolant, or your outdoor unit is blocked from yard debris and unable to provide the cooling of your home that you need. While you can try to run your system for a bit while getting less than cool air, this is only going to cost you more money in cooling costs.

When  Your System Won’t Turn On at All

A system that won’t turn on at all can be a problem with the electrical supply to the system, or with the unit itself. The thermostat could be broken, causing your system to fail to turn on. When the weather is hot and your air conditioner won’t turn on, this can be very frustrating. While you can try checking the circuit breaker to the air conditioning system, if this hasn’t been tripped, it will be hard for you to figure out what the problem is. If you have an air conditioning system that won’t turn on, you’ll need to call a technician to come and solve the problem. 

When you own a home air conditioning system, it’s important to have your system serviced every year. Good maintenance will help you avoid more expensive emergency repairs in the future.

I was planning a heater upgrade and received a 24 month no interest offer from Home Depot. They sent me a list of contractors and Comfort Air was the only contractor that called me before I could call anyone else. The customer support, salesperson and installers were fast, competent and incredibly supportive. From the time that I contacted them until the heater was installed was fast and the new heater is a big improvement over what I had before. Highly recommend Comfort Air for fast, efficient and professional service. I feel comfortable that they will be responsive, should there ever be an issue with my new heater!

Bradford the technician has come to our home a couple times and is always professional. I especially appreciate the exceptional customer service in the office. Every time I call, no matter who answers the phone, they always help me and go out of their way to help me understand how to troubleshoot my thermostat/heat pump. Today, I needed to revise an appt time and Rosa called me twice today to make sure she set up the appt for a time that would work for me. Fabulous service!
