This is why our experts will first attempt to repair your malfunctioning air conditioner. If your central AC just won’t work and has no life left to deliver, we'll help you find the best replacement system for your home. The most important part of the process is that you realize all your selections for your air conditioning system, and that your home comfort and safety is taken into consideration during the service call.

Signs you might need an AC Replacement Soon Your air conditioner might give you some "warning signs" that it's near the end of its life. Consider asking about a pre-emptive air conditioner replacement if: Your AC system is not cooling your home. You are calling for AC repairs more often. Your cooling bills have been increasing. Cooled air coming from your vents is weaker. Your AC unit is always running. The HVAC system is making weird noises. How do you figure out if you should contemplate an AC repair or an air conditioner replacement? If you're uneasy, the Dallas Guide to Air Conditioner Replacement is an ideal place to start. Nashville AC Repair Troubleshooting Checklist What to do before reaching out to Donelson Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an AC Repair Take a look at your breaker box for a tripped breaker. If the breaker is flipped, try resetting it. It's worth flipping it off and on again even if it doesn't seem like it tripped. Some breakers will trip but the switch can’t move much, making it look as though there is another problem. Older homes might have fuse boxes, in which case you're searching for a blown fuse. Examine your thermostat. You want to make sure that there are working batteries in it, it's functioning and that it's set to cool. There is no need call for an AC repair if a couple double AA batteries will fix your problem. Listen for strange noises coming from your air conditioning system. If you detect clicking, call Donelson Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately. Look for ice. If there is ice on your AC unit in a Nashville summer, you might have a refrigerant leak. Sometimes you’ll notice ice on the lines leading from your condenser (the big air conditioning unit outside your home with a fan on top) into your house. Refrigerant leaks need to be repaired quickly, or you have the threat of damaging critical components of your air conditioning system. Switch your filter! We all disregard the little chores sometimes. Replacing the air conditioning system's filter is an easy one to forget. Blocked air flow from a very dirty filter can severely reduce your system's efficiency and result in extra wear on components, like the blower motor. Examine your air vents. Your air conditioning system needs to breathe, which means maintaining air flow. If you have blocked air flow from your supply and return vents, it's likely you will have an AC repair during Nashville heatwaves down the road. Can you Repair an AC Coil Leak? We sure can. A leaking evaporator coil can be easy to spot, but costly to replace. It's because of air conditioner repairs like this that we advocate for an AC maintenance plan. Preventative maintenance and ongoing tune-ups can help to reduce the chance of more costly repairs down the road. In the event that the leak cannot be sealed and repaired, our HVAC technicians have the capability to replace the faulty component. AC Coil Repair Cost: $400-$1,200 Can you Repair the AC Compressor? Usually if the compressor is shot, you're looking to replace it, not repair it. The compressor in an air conditioner is a vital component and the part itself is one of the pricier pieces of the system. If you have an old unit and the compressor is finished, you will possibly want to replace the unit. There are three styles of AC compressors: single stage compressors, two-stage compressors and variable-speed compressors. The single stage compressors can only work at one level, which means it will run full force as long as it’s on. The two stage compressors provide two different levels, so it can run a little lower on days that have milder temps, which helps with efficiency. The most efficient selection is the variable capacity compressor which has the capability to constantly correct itself to meet the chosen temperature of the home. When the time happens to get help with your air conditioner, you can rely on the qualified technicians at Donelson Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. You can reach us at 615-953-9885 and we’ll be happy to answer your questions or set up an appointment. AC Compressor Repair Cost: $1,350-$1,800 4 Things That Result in AC Repair in Dallas 1 Lack of Air Conditioner Maintenance Letting your air conditioner run over extended periods of time without being maintained is likely to cause more headaches as time goes on. Whether it ends with air conditioner service calls or means a new air conditioning system, lack of maintenance, negatively impacts the efficiency and operation of your system. 2 AC Component Failure When your air conditioner isn’t running efficiently, the compressor and fan controls might wear out, or several other vital components may be impacted. When your system cycles on and off a lot there is preventable stress placed on these internal parts, which can cause improper operation or premature failure. 3 Thermostat Problems From a dead battery to a thermostat sensor that isn’t calibrated properly, there are a host of thermostat problems that could occur. If it has been a while since you last switched your thermostat batteries, it could be time to do so in order to dodge any problems with the settings you selected. 4 Condensation in your Air Conditioner Your air conditioning unit will produce a large amount of condensation. Some air conditioners have an electric condensate pump with tubing that can be damaged or clogged with algae or ice. Call one of our friendly service technicians if you suspect something is wrong with your pump. What you can do to get your AC Repair Faster Everyone wants relief fast, especially in a blazing Nashville heatwave.

Mini-split AC units are ideal options for historic homes that do not have the option for ductwork, tough to heat and cool spaces like garages or new additions where the AC system does not currently exist. Donelson Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is qualified to repair, replace, and install ductless mini-split air conditioning systems of any make and model. In the Nashville community, we have a lot of newer homes and more are being constructed every day. Once in a while a newer home may still have heating and cooling problems for specific rooms. We can install a zoning system to help mitigate any problem areas in your home that experience hot and cold spots. Some customers prefer to use a mini-split system for this purpose as well. While we find these systems are reliable, it does happen sometimes that a mini-split system wears out and requires repairs just like a central air conditioning system.

A well-established HVAC company will likely have the most qualified HVAC technicians on board and a good number of clients who could serve as referrals.
