HVAC systems break down over time just like anything else, especially if regular air conditioner maintenance has been ignored or neglected for a long time.

If your central AC is done and has no life left to offer, we'll help you find the appropriate replacement system for your home. The most important factor is that you have all your options for your air conditioning system, and that your home comfort and safety is taken into consideration during the service call. We realize a new air conditioning system is a important investment, so we’ll work with you to identify the best system to meet your needs and budget while keeping the Birmingham weather in mind. You might also benefit from rebates and other cash incentives offered 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 struggling to keep working. Consider reaching out to experts about a pre-emptive air conditioner replacement if: Your air conditioner is not cooling your home. You are frequently scheduling repairs. Your cooling bills keep rising. Cooled air coming from your vents is weaker. Your AC unit is always running. The HVAC system is making funny noises. How do you gauge if you should think about an AC repair or an air conditioner replacement? If you're concerned, the Dallas Guide to Air Conditioner Replacement is a good place to read up. Birmingham AC Repair Troubleshooting Checklist What to do before contacting Norrell Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an AC Repair Check your breaker box for a tripped breaker. If the breaker is flipped, reset the breaker. You may want to flip it off and on again even if it doesn't appear to have tripped. Some breakers will trip but the switch doesn’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. Check your thermostat. You want to make sure that there are working batteries in it, it's functioning and that it's set to cool. There is no need for an AC repair call if a couple double AA batteries fix the situation. Listen for funny noises coming from your air conditioning system. If you notice clicking, call Norrell Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning straightaway. Look for ice. If there is ice on your AC unit in a Birmingham summer, it's possible that you 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 should be repaired quickly, or you are in danger of damaging key components of your air conditioning system. Switch your filter! We all neglect the little chores from time to time. Replacing the air conditioning system's filter is an easy one to forget. Blocked air flow from a very dirty filter can brutally reduce your system's efficiency and offer extra wear on components, like the blower motor. Examine your air vents. Your air conditioning system needs to breathe, which means maintaining air flow. If you have blocked air flow from your supply and return vents, it's likely you will experience an AC repair during Birmingham heatwaves down the road. Can you Repair an AC Coil Leak? You bet. A leaking evaporator coil can be easy to spot, but costly to replace. It's because of air conditioner repairs like this that we recommend an AC maintenance plan. Preventative maintenance and ongoing tune-ups can help to prevent more costly repairs down the road. Should it be determined that the leak cannot be sealed and repaired, our HVAC technicians can replace the faulty component. AC Coil Repair Cost: $400-$1,200 Can you Repair the AC Compressor? Usually if the compressor is shot, you're planning to replace it, not repair it. The compressor in an air conditioner is a key component and the part itself is one of the pricier pieces of the system. If you have an old unit and the compressor is gone, you might want to replace the unit. There are three types 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 have milder temps, which benefits efficiency. The most efficient option is the variable capacity compressor which has the capability to constantly adjust to meet the preferred temperature of the home. When the time comes to get help with your air conditioner, you can rely on the qualified professionals at Norrell Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. Contact us at 205-267-0023 and we’ll be happy to answer your questions or arrange an appointment. AC Compressor Repair Cost: $1,350-$1,800 4 Things That End in AC Repair in Dallas 1 Lack of Air Conditioner Maintenance Letting your air conditioner operate over lengthy periods of time without being maintained is likely to cause challenges as time elapses. Whether it ends with air conditioner service calls or it requires a new air conditioning system, lack of maintenance, can be detrimental to the efficiency and operation of your system. 2 AC Component Failure When your air conditioner isn’t operating efficiently, the compressor and fan controls may wear out, or several other vital components may be impacted. When your system cycles on and off a lot there is unnecessary stress placed on these internal parts, which can cause improper operation or premature failure. 3 Thermostat Problems From a dead battery to a thermostat sensor that isn’t calibrated correctly, there are many 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 avoid any concerns with the settings you selected. 4 Condensation in your Air Conditioner Your air conditioning unit will make a large amount of condensation. Some air conditioners have an electric condensate pump with tubing that can be broken or clogged with algae or ice. Reach out to one of our friendly service technicians if you suspect something isn’t right with your pump. What you can do to get your AC Repair Faster Everyone wants relief fast, especially in a blazing Birmingham heatwave. But it's a fact that the hotter it gets; the more AC repair calls your local Birmingham HVAC companies take. There are two measures you can take to get faster service. Watch the weather. If you see in the forecast that the upcoming week is going to be hot and you know your air conditioner is old and not working as efficiently, call Norrell Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning and schedule a tune-up as soon as possible. Make sure you share your concerns and anything odd you've noticed about your air conditioning system. This will help us inspect anything that could cause a catastrophic failure during warmer seasons. Join one of Norrell Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning's Service Plans. Not only do you have the added benefit of receiving regular tune-ups for your air conditioner, which could prevent the need for an AC repair completely. If something does happen, we’ll be ready for you. Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioning Repair If it helps decrease your indoor temps, we can fix it. Mini-split AC units are ideal options for historic homes that do not have the option for ductwork, difficult to heat and cool spaces like garages or new additions where the AC system does not currently reach. Norrell Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can repair, replace, and install ductless mini-split air conditioning systems of any make and model. In the Birmingham metro, we have a lot of newer homes and more are being constructed every day. Sometimes a newer home might still have heating and cooling issues for specific rooms. We can install a zoning system to help mitigate any problem areas in your home that experience hot and cold spots. Some customers decide to use a mini-split system for this purpose as well. While we find these units are reliable, it does happen sometimes that a mini-split system wears out and needs repairs just like a central air conditioning system.
