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 air conditioning system is not cooling your home. You need frequent AC repairs. Your cooling bills keep rising. Cooled air coming from your vents is weaker. Your AC unit is consistently running. The HVAC system is making funny noises. How do you gauge if you should think about an AC repair or an air conditioner replacement? If you're uneasy, the Dallas Guide to Air Conditioner Replacement is a great place to start. Ogden AC Repair Troubleshooting Checklist What to do before contacting Barlow Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an AC Repair Review your breaker box for a tripped breaker. If the breaker is flipped, you can try to reset it. You can flip it off and on again even if it doesn't look like it has tripped. Some breakers will trip but the switch won't move much, making it look as though there is a separate problem. Older homes might have fuse boxes, in which case you're assessing for a blown fuse. Inspect your thermostat. You want to make sure that there are working batteries in it, it's operating and that it's set to cool. There is no need call for an AC repair if a couple double AA batteries fix the situation. Listen for odd noises coming from your air conditioning system. If you notice clicking, call Barlow Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning straightaway. Take a look to see if ice is present. If ice is on your AC unit in a Ogden summer, you might have a refrigerant leak. Sometimes you’ll notice ice on the lines running 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 an excessively dirty filter can severely reduce your system's efficiency and offer extra wear on components, like the blower motor. Check your air vents. Your air conditioning system needs to breathe, which means sustaining air flow. If you have blocked air flow from your supply and return vents, it's possible you will face an AC repair during Ogden heatwaves at some point in the future. Can you Repair an AC Coil Leak? We sure can. A leaking evaporator coil can be easy to spot, but pricey 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 key component and the part itself is one of the costlier pieces of the system. If you have an old unit and the compressor is done, you may want to replace the unit. There are three categories of AC compressors: single stage compressors, two-stage compressors and variable-speed compressors. The single stage compressors can only operate at one level, which means it will run full force as long as it’s on. The two stage compressors offer two different levels, so it can run a little lower on days that have milder temps, which benefits efficiency. The most efficient choice is the variable capacity compressor which has the ability to constantly adjust to meet the chosen temperature of the home. When the time happens to get help with your air conditioner, you can depend on the qualified professionals at Barlow Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. Give us a call at 801-436-8985 and we’ll be happy to answer your questions or schedule 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 work over lengthy periods of time without being maintained is likely to cause challenges as time elapses. Whether it leads to air conditioner service calls or you needing a new air conditioning system, lack of maintenance, can be detrimental to the efficiency and operation of your system. 2 AC Component Failure When your air conditioner isn’t running efficiently, the compressor and fan controls may wear out, or several other important components may be impacted. When your system cycles on and off a lot there is unnecessary 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 correctly, there are a host of thermostat problems that could happen. If it has been a while since you last switched your thermostat batteries, it could be time to do so in order to avoid any issues with the settings you chose. 4 Condensation in your Air Conditioner Your air conditioning unit will create 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. Contact one of our friendly service technicians if you suspect something seems off with your pump.

Barlow 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 Ogden community, we have several newer homes and more are built every day. Once in a while a newer home might still have heating and cooling problems for specific rooms. We can install a zoning system to help ease any problem areas in your home that have hot and cold spots. Some customers decide to use a mini-split system for this problem as well. While we find these systems are reliable, it does happen sometimes that a mini-split system wears out and demands repairs just like a central air conditioning system.
