When to Call for your Los Angeles Air Conditioning Repair

Over the years, we have noticed that many Los Angeles homeowners hesitate to call for AC repair. The fact is that if your air conditioning system isn’t working, it will only get hotter. And depending on what’s wrong with your equipment, it could cost you in the long run with hefty energy bills. If one of these symptoms applies to your situation, don’t delay in calling us to repair or service your air conditioning system. 

  • AC is making a weird noise  – if your air conditioner is making squealing or shrieking noises, particularly when it first starts up, that’s a problem that requires repair. Our technician can diagnose the source of the noise, but it is likely a problem with a belt-driven motor or the bearings on the fan motor. Buzzing and humming noises are also common, but usually have to do with loose or unstable parts. Securing system components is important to keeping your AC running as long as possible. The important thing to remember is that any weird noise from your air conditioner indicates a problem that needs fixing.
  • AC is blowing warm air – warm air when your AC is on? It doesn’t take an HVAC expert to know that’s not right. The reason your AC is blowing warm air is because the fan is running but the cooling mechanism is faulty. The most likely scenario for an air conditioner blowing warm air in your house is that your AC is low on refrigerant charge. Leaks in your refrigerant lines can be microscopic, with your system losing tiny amounts of refrigerant over the years. Brody Pennell will not only get you charged back up, but we will hunt down the leak and seal it to prevent any future issues from that spot. 
  • AC is turning on and off – If your air conditioner keeps turning on and off for just a few seconds or minutes at a time, then it is short cycling. An air conditioning system that switches between on and off is not just annoying; it’s a signal that something is wrong. The cause for short cycling is usually one of two issues. The first is a problem with the thermostat or the sensor inside the thermostat. The second is that the AC is oversized or overcharged with refrigerant. 
  • AC not working – if your AC is not functioning at all and it doesn’t turn on, it’s definitely worth a call to our team. We can help provide some quick troubleshooting over the phone, and failing that, we will have one of our technicians come to investigate. There are many possible reasons for an air conditioner that’s not working, it could be anything from a worn-out electrical contact to a faulty compressor, or even a thermostat problem. When your AC won’t turn on, it’s time to call in the professionals.  

Even with regular AC maintenance, you can still experience a breakdown.  Anyone who has been left in the Los Angeles summer heat without AC can tell you that it is not a fun experience.
