Reliable Air Repair Experts Servicing the Nashville Area
Have you noticed your air conditioner has started to make some unusual noises? Is your AC now pushing out more warm air than cold? Are you worried your air conditioning system is leaking water? Or does your unit no longer operate at all, even though you’ve checked the air filter and performed regular maintenance? When your air conditioner fails to cool your home properly, it’s time to act. Fortunately, ARS/Rescue Rooter of Nashville has professionals who are highly trained, licensed, and insured. When you put yourself in our hands, you can count on quality service that will get your AC back up and running. Keep reading to learn more about what to do when your air conditioning stops working and what to expect when your AC repair technician arrives.
An initial evaluation
When your ARS/Rescue Rooter of Nashville repair technician arrives on the scene, they’ll start by asking about the problems you’ve been experiencing. For example, information about what kinds of noises you’ve heard may help a technician discover if your ductwork is the source of these odd sounds. And your knowledge about where water has appeared can allow a technician to trace the source of any leaks, which is the first step in making repairs.
Your technician will also make sure your air conditioner’s thermostat is responding correctly. A faulty thermostat is often behind air conditioning issues, because a thermostat that isn’t working properly may keep the air conditioner running when it’s not supposed to or may result in the air conditioner not turning on when it’s needed most.
Checking your refrigerant
Another important part of basic air conditioning repair is having a technician investigate the coolant levels of your AC. Refrigerant levels that don’t meet manufacturer specifications can negatively impact the efficiency of your air conditioning unit. And it’s necessary to have a trained technician, like those at ARS/Rescue Rooter of Nashville, do this work; an unskilled technician may go through the steps of this process incorrectly.
A low refrigerant level calls for recharging the coolant in your air conditioner. However, as energy.gov notes, it’s also important to uncover why the coolant level is low, as solely recharging the coolant may only mask the underlying problem. ARS/Rescue Rooter of Nashville technicians understand it’s imperative to make sure there is no leak in your unit or another existing issue that’s resulting in low levels of refrigerant.
If one of our technicians determines to recharge your coolant is the proper course of action, you can always count on us to safely complete the process while following all local and federal regulations.
Evaluating potential mechanical issues
An air conditioner works wonders by keeping you cool and comfortable when it’s meltingly hot outside. However, you shouldn’t forget your AC has a complex mechanical system, and this complexity means a range of problems can develop. That’s why ARS/Rescue Rooter of Nashville technicians are trained to inspect air conditioning systems for mechanical issues such as:
- Problems with fan or blower belts
- Worn air compressors
- Broken or melted wiring
- Fan blades that are chipped or cracked
- Damage to the coils or fan motor
If our technicians find anything concerning, they know what steps to take to make things right. Whether you need wiring replaced, fan blades reshaped, or a new air compressor installed, we won’t stop until we’ve made sure your air conditioner is in great working condition.
