Maintenance and AC Repair
During maintenance, our HVAC technicians provide a comprehensive inspection, testing, lubricate moving parts, and other tasks that ensure the unit is operating at peak performance for the highest effectiveness and energy efficiency. During maintenance, the technician can identify any failing components. This is advantageous because when one part fails, it is common for it to cause additional components to fail in a chain reaction. Catching it early, ensures your comfort and reduces the cost of air conditioning repair in Mansfield, TX.
The Continuously Running AC
When the air conditioner is operating properly, it runs only until the set temperature is reached. When an AC unit runs continuously, there is a problem. If the AC previously cycled on and off as it should, several potential problems may be occurring. First, check the air filter. Overly dirty air filters can cause performance issues, and shorten the unit’s service life by causing unnecessary wear and tear on the unit. A lack of routine filter changes is a common cause of the need for air conditioning repair in Mansfield, TX.
Next, a continuously running AC may be in need of repair. In a worst case scenario the compressor may be worn, and the unit unable to achieve the desired temperature. In addition, refrigerant leaks are a common cause of poor performance and a lack of cold air. A refrigerant leak can lead to the failure of other components, including the costly compressor, so call for service at the first sign of trouble. Our HVAC technicians can provide leak repair and recharge your system.
When a worn or failed compressor is the root of the problem, and the system is aging, the majority of homeowners prefer to replace the air conditioning unit, gaining reliability, higher energy efficiency and improving their comfort. Minuteman Heating & AC can provide the professional air conditioning installation in Mansfield, TX that you require.
A faulty thermostat can also cause the unit to run non-stop. If yours operates on batteries, try changing them, and check the settings. Improperly set thermostats are a common cause for HVAC service calls. Ensure the settings are for cooling and automatic fan. Furthermore, HVAC thermostats can experience wear related to age, and will eventually require replacement. Our NATE certified technicians can provide you with the installation of a new thermostat of your choice. Just give us a call for air conditioning repair in Mansfield, TX.
In addition, if your air conditioner has run constantly from day one, resulting in excessive electric bills, the unit may be undersized for your home. Undersized and /or oversized units are common, and carry potential problems due to improper sizing. While an undersized unit can run continuously, an oversized air conditioner can not run long enough to properly remove moisture from the air. This results in discomfort due to excessive humidity. The development of mold and mildew are also potential consequences of air conditioning that is oversized.
Other factors that may affect your air conditioner’s performance, include the quality of insulation, so check your attic. If you can see the ceiling joists, add insulation. Shade is also a factor, and if you recently lost a tree which provided shade for your home, this can increase the workload on the air conditioner. Shade makes a significant difference, and it’s worth planting deciduous shade trees on the south and western facing sides of your home. Select trees as tall as the budget allows, since they are slow growing.
If your AC is running continuously, contact Minuteman Heating & AC. Our NATE certified technicians can determine the cause, and provide the required air conditioning repair in Mansfield, TX that you require.
Duct work Leaks
Ducts that have loose joints, are damaged, or have lost their seal, can also cause the air conditioner to perform poorly and run continuously. For example, leaks in the duct work allows conditioned air to escape, resulting in the cold air going in the attic, crawl space, basement or walls, rather than in the living space where you need it. Resealing and/or providing duct repair ensures you receive the conditioned air where you need it, without wasting energy. Furthermore, ducts should be insulated, especially those located in an attic or basement. Insulated ducts will save you money, and improve your comfort. We can provide the duct repair that you require.
