If your central AC has just given up and has no life left to deliver, we'll help you find the right replacement system for your home. The most important part of the process is that you realize all your choices for your air conditioning system, and that your home comfort and safety is taken into consideration during the service call. We know a new air conditioning system is a big investment, so we’ll work with you to make the best system to meet your needs and budget while keeping the Dallas environment in mind. You might also benefit from rebates and other cash incentives provided by utility companies, manufacturers, and local and federal governments. Signs you might need an AC Replacement Soon Your air conditioner could give you some "warning signs" that it's thinking about retiring. 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 losing strength. Your AC unit is always running. The HVAC system is making funny noises. How do you know if you should think about an AC repair or an air conditioner replacement? If you're worried, the Dallas Guide to Air Conditioner Replacement is a good place to begin. Dallas AC Repair Troubleshooting Checklist What to do before contacting Levy & Son for an AC Repair Take a look at your breaker box for a tripped breaker. If the breaker is flipped, you can try to reset it. It's worth flipping it off and on again even if it doesn't appear to have tripped. Some breakers will trip but the switch won't move much, making it appear as though there is a different problem. Older homes may have fuse boxes, in which case you're assessing for a blown fuse. Inspect your thermostat. You want to ensure that there are working batteries in it, it's operating and that it's set to cool. There is no need to bring in the experts if a couple double AA batteries are the solution. Listen for funny noises coming from your air conditioning system. If you notice clicking, call Levy & Son immediately. See if there is ice. If ice is on your AC unit in a Dallas summer, you might have a refrigerant leak. Sometimes there will be ice on the lines going from your condenser (the big air conditioning unit outside your home with a fan on top) into your house. Refrigerant leaks must be repaired quickly, or you are in danger of damaging vital components of your air conditioning system. Replace your filter! We all ignore the little chores once in a while. Replacing the air conditioning system's filter is an easy one to forget. Blocked air flow from an overly dirty filter can severely reduce your system's efficiency and lead to 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 likely you will experience an AC repair during Dallas 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 expensive to replace. It's because of air conditioner repairs like this that we suggest an AC maintenance plan. Preventative maintenance and regular 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? Typically if the compressor is shot, you're planning to replace it, not repair it. The compressor in an air conditioner is a vital component and the part itself is one of the more costly pieces of the system. If you have an old unit and the compressor is finished, you might 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 operate at one level, which means it will run full force as long as it’s on. The two stage compressors have two different levels, so it can run a little lower on days that aren’t quite as warm, which helps with efficiency. The most efficient option is the variable capacity compressor which has the capability to constantly adapt to meet the desired temperature of the home. When the time comes to get help with your air conditioner, you can count on the qualified professionals at Levy & Son. You can reach us at 469-250-0932 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 Lead to AC Repair in Dallas 1 Lack of Air Conditioner Maintenance Letting your air conditioner run over long periods of time without being maintained is likely to cause problems as time elapses. Whether it results in 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 operating efficiently, the compressor and fan controls could 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, resulting in 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 take place. If it has been a while since you last swapped out your thermostat batteries, it could be time to do so in order to escape any issues with the settings you have in place. 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. Reach out to one of our friendly service technicians if you think something is wrong with your pump. What you can do to get your AC Repair Faster Everyone wants relief fast, especially in a sweltering Dallas heatwave.

Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioning Repair If it chills the air, we can help. Mini-split AC units are good choices for historic homes that do not have room for ductwork, difficult to heat and cool spaces like garages or new additions where the AC system does not currently reach. Levy & Son is qualified to repair, replace, and install ductless mini-split air conditioning systems of any make and model. In the Dallas area, 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 eliminate any problem areas in your home that experience hot and cold spots. Some customers decide to use a mini-split system for this challenge as well. While we find these units are reliable, it does happen sometimes that a mini-split system wears out and requires repairs just like a central air conditioning system.
