AC Repair FAQs
Why is my AC running but not cooling?
When the AC is not cooling, make sure the thermostat is set to cooling mode, and not “fan only.” Then check that the air filter isn’t clogged or dirty. Other possible causes of cooling problems can be a dirty condenser coil, a dirty evaporator, a frozen evaporator, low refrigerant, or compressor problems. For help solving challenging cooling problems, talk to our experts at Southern Pride Service.
Can I fix my AC myself?
If your air conditioner isn’t working properly, there are a few things you can try before calling a professional for repairs. Make sure the thermostat is set correctly and has fresh batteries if it uses them. Replace the air filter if it’s dirty, and make sure none of the AC vents are blocked. Finally, reset the system by turning its breakers off, then back on. If you’re still having cooling problems, call our team at Southern Pride Service for help.
How long do AC repairs take?
Some AC repairs will take longer than others, but simple repairs like replacing a contactor, replacing a control board, or charging the refrigerant often take an hour or less. More complicated repairs like replacing a blower motor, installing a new compressor, or checking for refrigerant leaks can take several hours.
Is a broken AC an emergency?
Summer temperatures can get dangerously hot at times in southern Maryland. During these periods, an AC that won’t run or can’t cool your home properly would certainly be considered an emergency.
If your air conditioner is running but has minor issues like frequent cycling, slight cooling problems, or insufficient airflow, you can often skip the inconvenience of an emergency service call and schedule an AC repair appointment when it’s best for you.
Is it OK to spray water on your air conditioner?
If the outside condenser unit is dusty or dirty, spraying water on the coils generally won’t hurt anything. Getting rid of the dust will make the heat transfer process more effective and allow your AC to run more efficiently. Make sure you don’t use pressures high enough to bend the delicate aluminum fins on the coils. After your spray-down, schedule a proper coil cleaning with Southern Pride Service as soon as possible.
