Signs it's Time to Call for AC Repair

Sometimes, it’s obvious when your AC isn’t working. Other times, the signs are less noticeable right away and you may wonder if your system really needs service or replacement.

Keep an eye out for the symptoms of a malfunctioning air conditioner:

  • System won’t turn on
  • System frequently turns on and off (called “short cycling”)
  • Condensation buildup/leaking on or near AC unit
  • Unit is producing unusual sounds or smells
  • Unusual spike in energy bill
  • Warm air blows from vents

How Often Do I Need to Change My AC Filter?

Your air conditioner's air filter is a very important part of your system - if it is neglected, it can cause your AC to work less efficiently or even break down completely, not to mention negatively affect your indoor air quality. A good rule of thumb is that AC filters should be changed at least every 90 days for the average suburban home. If you have pets or have someone in your household who suffers from allergies or asthma, we recommend changing your filter at least every 30 to 60 days. Letting your air conditioner run with a dirty, clogged air filter can cause dust and contaminants to enter your AC, which can jam fan motors and moving parts. This leads to system inefficiency, which means that your system draws more power in order to work, which in turn costs you more money on your bill.

How Many Hours Should AC Run Per Day?

There isn’t a prescribed number of hours your air conditioner should run in a day. It all depends on how hot it is and what temperature you set the thermostat to. A healthy AC should ideally be able to run 24 hours a day. But if the unit old or hasn’t been maintained, it will struggle to keep up with demand. Our skilled HVAC technicians provide reliable Spring TX AC repair so you can stay cool all summer.

Why Won’t My AC Turn On?

When the temperatures go up, your air conditioner provides a lifeline for your comfort. That’s why the last thing you want is for your AC not to turn on. If it won’t start, there can be a couple of reasons for this.

Reasons why your AC isn’t starting include:

  • Circuit breaker: The circuit breaker will trip if too many electronics or major appliances are used at once, to protect from electrical overload. If the circuit breaker did trip, it would cut off power to the air conditioner.
  • Broken thermostat: The thermostat communicates the weather to the cooling system, letting the air conditioner know when to turn on. If the thermostat is broken, your AC won’t know when to start.
  • Old unit: Air conditioners weren’t meant to last forever and even the sturdiest of stocks will stop working eventually. If your AC is older than 15 to 20 years, it might have died.

Why Is My Running But Not Cooling?

Has your AC ever failed to cool your home even when it’s been running for a while? This isn’t an uncommon issue and there can be many reasons for this.

Reasons AC Is Not Cooling While Running:

  • Thermostat is not set to the right temperature
  • The air conditioner is not big enough to cool the property
  • The air filters are all dirty
  • The evaporator coils are frozen
  • There is a refrigerant leak
  • The condenser unit is blocked

If you encounter any of these issues or can’t figure out what’s wrong with your air conditioner, call Milton Frank Plumbing & Cooling today. We provide fast, lasting Spring, TX AC repairs that will keep you comfortable no matter how hot it gets.

AC Repair Vs. Replacement

When your air conditioner breaks down, you have one of two options in the Texan Heat. You can either opt for AC repair or replace the unit outright. While repairing your AC might seem like the cost effective maneuver, it's more expensive in the following situations.

1. Your AC is old - On average an AC unit lasts 8-10 years depending on use, environment, brand and maintenance levels. If you have an AC older than that and it's working fine then make no changes, but don't sink money into repairing an AC unit that's near the end of its use and put that money to a new replacement.

2. One repair after another - Our Spring AC repair team will always be happy to come in and fix your unit. But if you're needing us every season then it's money that's better spent on a new unit.

3. It requires R22 Freon - Because of the 2020 Freon Ban, AC units that require the banned coolant will become more expensive to run. While the use of this refrigerant isn't illegal the production has ceased altogether, so make sure you don't sink money repairing a unit that's going to cost you more and more each year.
