Our licensed technicians will arrive at your home with the expertise, tools, and components required to restore your air conditioner to proper operation. We can seal leaks, recharge refrigerant, replace capacitors and contactors, clear condensate drain lines, and more. 

Signs You Need Air Conditioning Repair

Air conditioners are durable but aren’t immune to wear and tear. As your system ages, you’ll notice signs that components are wearing out and cooling performance is falling behind.

Staying on top of AC maintenance can protect your system and prevent emergency repairs. However, it’s always best to schedule an appointment for AC repairs when you notice any issues, such as:

  • A malfunctioning thermostat
  • Warm air
  • Diminished airflow
  • Noisy operation, such as banging, grinding, or screeching sounds
  • Noxious odors, such as burning, musty, or chemical odors
  • Increased indoor humidity
  • System short-cycling
  • Water or coolant leaks
  • An unexplained increase in your electric bill
People You Can Count On!

AC Repair vs. Replacement

An air conditioner is a considerable investment, and you want to keep it operational for as many years as possible. When a malfunction is relatively minor or if it’s a newer unit still under warranty, AC repair is usually the best option. Most problems with faulty thermostats, refrigerant leaks, clogged drain lines, faulty breakers, damaged capacitors, and dirty coils are easily repaired.

However, if your unit is 10 to 15 years old, or the repair exceeds 50% of the replacement cost, air conditioner replacement may be the best solution. For instance, problems with compressors and motors can be costly to repair. If your AC needs frequent repairs, you’re likely better off investing in a new system that will provide another decade or more of comfort. 

Why Choose Comfort First?

You can rest assured that our licensed and insured technicians will deliver the superior HVAC repairs, replacements, and maintenance you deserve. At Comfort First, you can always count on:

Frequently Asked Questions

If you don’t service your AC system regularly, you could be asking for trouble down the road. Here are just a few problems you could experience without regular maintenance visits.

  • Dirty or clogged interior components force the system to work harder, increasing energy costs and reducing cooling power.
  • Leaks or other issues that either reduce cooling or put extra strain on the system can occur.
  • There’s an increased risk of major component malfunction, which could require costly repairs.
  • There’s a higher likelihood of problems with wiring or relays, which may present a safety hazard.

Our AC systems have to work hard to keep up with the NC heat. You don’t want to be caught without AC during the hot Carolina summer. Contact the Comfort First team for fast service today.

Unfortunately, even the best HVAC pros usually can’t make a long-lasting repair to a leaking AC coil, and the homeowner must decide whether to replace the coil or the entire unit.

An AC coil should last as long as the expected lifespan of the entire system, but over time, coils can develop pinhole leaks that the naked eye can’t detect. These leaks can cause the unit to lose refrigerant over time, reducing the system’s cooling power. Temporary fixes such as recharging the refrigerant or attempting to seal the coils don’t usually work long-term.

An AC unit that doesn’t seem to be blowing cold air may be a sign of this common problem, but only an HVAC professional can properly diagnose a leaking AC coil.

If your AC system seems to be running fine but isn’t blowing cold air out of the vents inside your house, it could be due to many issues.

There are a few common problems that you might be able to fix yourself.

  • Check the thermostat: Often, an incorrectly programmed unit will be in “fan” mode.
  • Check the filters: Dirty or clogged air filters lower the unit’s cooling power.
  • Check the outside unit: Leaves or overgrown foliage can accumulate on or around the unit and should be cleared away.

If these don’t work, diagnosis and repair of other common problems are best left to an HVAC pro. These include issues such as:

  • Malfunctioning evaporator coils 
  • Refrigerant leaks
  • Broken compressors

Had these folks install a couple of whole home dehumidifiers for me. They were prompt, courteous, professional, and efficient.
