Signs that you need air conditioner repair in London, Ontario.

  • Your energy bills rise every month. If you notice an increase in your energy bills during the hot months, it might be a sign that your unit is not working as it should be.
  • AC won’t turn on or runs erratically. If your unit does not run smoothly, it takes more energy than it should because it continually reboots itself. It is also a sign of a bigger problem. The sooner you have a technician check it, the more likely you are to avoid a huge bill.
  • Unusual sounds or smells. This is a clear sign of an incorrectly working air conditioner. Generally, smell or sound appears only after one or several components are heavily damaged.
  • The air conditioner can’t keep up the temperature. Lack of temperature control is one of the first things that happen to your cooling system when something is not functioning properly inside your air conditioner unit.

Common air conditioner problems in London, Ontario

A/C does not turn on

Possible Problem Areas

  1. Bad Capacitor
  2. Bad Control Board

Possible Explanation

  1. All capacitors do not have a long lifespan. However, a dirty condenser coil can shorten it even further. A dirty air filter also harms the capacitor.
  2. The Control board s not sending power to the outside unit when a thermostat is calling for cooling.

Possible Solution

  1. Replace the capacitor
  2. Replace the control board

A-coil freezes over

Possible Problem Areas

  1. Low level of refrigerant

Possible Explanation

  1. AC is a permanently sealed system, meaning whatever freon is in there stays in there for a unit’s life. So, if some refrigerant is missing, it guarantees that you have a leak somewhere.

Possible Solution

  1. You will need a technician’s help to locate the leak and determine the repair cost. Sometimes, you might get away with just adding some freon every season.
