If you’ve ever suffered a problem with your AC unit, then you know how important it is to find someone who can perform the repairs in a timely fashion. While many HVAC issues require the service of a skilled professional, there are a few problems you may be able to fix on your own. At Del-Air, we pride ourselves on offering expert, affordable service and advice for all your heating and cooling system needs. Here are a few money-saving tips for DIY air conditioner repair:

My Unit Is Making Weird Noises.

It’s not uncommon for an AC unit to be a little noisy. However, if your air conditioner is especially loud, it may indicate a problem with your air filter. A clogged filter affects your airflow, a fact that makes your AC unit less effective, often leading to higher electric bills. Additionally, dirty filters can cause issues with your ductwork. If your air conditioner is making odd sounds, try turning it off and installing a new filter to see if that corrects the problem.

My Thermostat Display Is Blank.

While a blank thermostat display may seem like a cause for alarm, this is one AC issue you can often correct on your own. After ensuring that the batteries are fully charged, evaluate the unit’s breakers. You can reset any trips by switching the thermostat from the OFF position, to the ON position. With any luck, this will restore your AC to proper working order.

My House Is Getting Warmer Instead of Colder.

Is your air conditioner on but failing to cool your home? You might want to check that your AC has sufficient refrigerant. Additionally, a cooling problem can indicate that your air filter is clogged. Check the outside portion of your unit to ensure leaves and other forms of debris aren’t obstructing the airflow and see if that solves the issue.

This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated. The office staff was pleasant and so was the technician that came out to service my air conditioners. Thanks…
