If your air conditioning isn’t working as it should, the solution might be something simple that you can manage yourself without calling a professional. Before picking up the phone, try a few simple troubleshooting tips. In many cases, you can solve issues quickly on your own by doing the following:

  • Check the thermostat: Make sure the thermostat is on and at the desired settings. The batteries may need replacing, or someone could have accidentally reset the temperature. Check the circuit breaker panel as well; you may need to reset a tripped breaker switch.
  • Check the air filter: A dirty air filter is one of the most common reasons for diminished AC performance. When dust and other debris clog the AC filter, air can’t flow freely through the unit. This means it has to work harder and may not produce as much cold air. 
  • Check the outdoor AC unit: If outdoor debris, such as overgrown plants or twigs, collects in the unit’s vents, it can affect the air conditioner’s operation. In some cases, debris can damage the fan blades.

If you’ve checked for these common problems and everything seems fine, call the pros from 1st Choice Mechanical, LLC, to diagnose the problem.

Signs You Need Professional Air Conditioning Repair

Although basic troubleshooting can often get your AC unit up and running again, certain problems require professional help, including:

This could be due to an electrical issue, a significant malfunction, or a complete system breakdown. A broken compressor fan, for example, can cause the unit to overheat and trigger safety features that turn off the system.

This problem usually means a refrigerant leak, a duct problem, or a malfunctioning compressor in the outdoor unit.

including screeching, banging, rattling, whistling, or hissing. Many different issues can cause strange noises; for example, hissing sounds can indicate a refrigerant leak that needs repairs. 

This indicates an issue with ductwork or room air conditioner units in most cases. Blocking vents and registers with furniture, or closing them, can also contribute to uneven cooling. 

Blockages — such as clogged air filters — disrupt airflow and cause the condenser coils in the outdoor unit to freeze over. Frozen coils can also indicate the need to charge the refrigerant. 

AC units drain condensation outdoors, but if you see water inside, that could mean clogs or damage to the drain lines and drain pan. Frozen condenser coils in room air conditioners can also cause water leaks as the ice melts.

When your AC has to work harder than usual to produce cool air, it uses more power. It could just be that your AC is old and needs replacing, but blocked air filters and mechanical issues can also cause bills to skyrocket. 

Foul or musty odors from the vents usually mean something is wrong with the ducts, but mechanical problems can also produce unpleasant odors.

No matter what’s happening with your AC unit, one of our friendly technicians can be there quickly, at any time of day or night, to solve the problem. We work hard to exceed expectations and eliminate the hassles of dealing with the AC system. We’ll leave you cool, comfortable, and confident that your AC won’t let you down. 

FAQ

FAQ's Regarding Air Conditioning Repair and Maintenance

We’re proud to be local air conditioning experts Phoenix residents can count on. We know you have questions; the following are some of the most common queries we receive from customers. 

When you call 1st Choice Mechanical LLC for air conditioning repair in your Phoenix home, our technicians will thoroughly assess your system and provide an honest and fair estimate for repairs. However, if it turns out your AC is beyond repair or the unit is likely to have ongoing issues, they’ll let you know. Integrity and honesty are cornerstones of our company, so you can trust our technicians’ recommendations.

A malfunctioning AC unit not only makes your home hot and uncomfortable, but it can also cause numerous other problems, including:

  • Increased allergy systems: AC units help preserve indoor air quality by filtering contaminants. If the filter is clogged or the unit isn’t running properly, excess dust, pollen, and other allergens can reduce air quality. If anyone in your family has allergies or respiratory conditions, poor air quality can worsen their symptoms. 
  • Poor sleep: No air conditioning on a hot Arizona night can mean a restless and uncomfortable night. 
  • More expensive repairs: Ignoring the signs of an air conditioning issue or allowing unqualified individuals to make repairs can lead to a bigger problem — and a budget-busting repair bill. Incorrect or poor-quality repair work can also mean repeat visits from the techs and more inconvenience. 
  • Total system failure: Even a minor problem can lead to major trouble without prompt repair. Putting off air conditioning repair can ultimately lead to a complete system failure, which means you will spend more on a replacement than you would on a simple repair. 

Air conditioning problems don’t always happen when it’s convenient. In fact, they usually occur at the worst possible time. Phoenix residents can count on 1st Choice Mechanical LLC to be there whenever they need them, with 24/7 emergency service available 365 days a year. 

Regular maintenance is critical to a well-functioning and efficient air conditioner. Homeowners can maintain their AC systems by regularly changing the air filters (as often as once a month, if necessary), keeping the area around the outdoor unit free of debris, and ensuring the vents and registers remain clear. Arranging for a professional inspection and tune-up at least once a year is also critical to preventing malfunctions.

When one of our 1st Choice Mechanical LLC technicians visits to perform maintenance on your AC unit, they perform a long list of tasks, including:

  • Testing overall system function
  • Testing and calibrating the thermostat
  • Inspecting electrical components and connections
  • Cleaning and inspecting evaporator and condenser coils 
  • Cleaning the drain pan and condensate lines
  • Checking refrigerant charge and adjusting as needed
  • Changing the air filter

If the technician spots any issues needing fixing, they can usually take care of the repairs immediately. We fully stock our vans with the most common parts, so you won’t have to wait or schedule a return visit. If the technician discovers more severe issues, they’ll let you know and help you determine the best solution.

Air Conditioning Maintenance

Keeping up with air conditioning maintenance can prevent many of the most common problems with the units and helps you avoid inconvenient breakdowns and repairs. Regular maintenance ensures the system is safe since technicians spot potentially dangerous issues like electrical hazards and equipment wear.

Maintenance also helps preserve indoor air quality and energy efficiency. For example, the average AC unit loses as much as 5% of its efficiency every year when dust and dirt build up on the coils.

  • Two scheduled maintenance visits per year to keep your system in top shape
  • A 20% discount on AC repairs

  • And more.
