AC Repairs – Warning Signs

As temperatures rise, it’s crucial to monitor your AC system closely to ensure it’s functioning properly. Here are several key indicators warning you of a possible AC problem. If you observe any of these signs, you’re likely facing an AC issue, and before you suffer a complete breakdown of your system, we encourage you to contact us at Five Star Heating & Air.

  • The most obvious, your air conditioner isn’t turning on.
  • Your AC is turning on but it’s not circulating cool air.
  • Your system is leaking water.
  • Your system is making loud banging, grinding, or whistling noises.
  • Your AC doesn’t turn off or it frequently cycles on and off.
  • Your AC is running but indoor humidity is high and uncomfortable.

Five Star’s AC Repair in Carpentersville, IL

We’re distributors and installers of TRANE and Mitsubishi air conditioning systems at Five Star, but our technicians have the training and experience to service all makes, models, and types of AC units and not just the ones we install.

Once on-site in response to your call, our technicians will do all the following to get your AC up and running again.

  • Initial Inspection: We’ll perform a thorough inspection of the air conditioning unit. This includes checking the external condition of the system, ensuring that all panels are secure and that there are no immediate visible signs of damage or wear.
  • Thermostat Check: The thermostat is tested to make sure it’s working correctly and communicating properly with the AC unit. We might also check to make sure the thermostat is calibrated correctly to ensure accurate temperature settings.
  • Air Filter Replacement or Cleaning: One of the simplest yet most crucial steps is checking the air filter. A clogged or dirty filter can significantly reduce efficiency. Depending on the type of filter and its condition, our technician will either clean it or recommend replacing it.
  • Checking Electrical Components: We’ll inspect all electrical connections and components to ensure they are tight and in good working order. This includes checking the capacitors, relays, and contractors for signs of wear or damage.
  • Refrigerant Level Check: The refrigerant level is crucial for the AC to cool effectively. Our technician will check the levels and, if necessary, recharge the refrigerant. They’ll also check for leaks, as refrigerant should not deplete under normal conditions.
  • Cleaning Coils: Both the evaporator and condenser coils will be inspected and cleaned. Dirty coils can inhibit heat absorption and release, reducing the efficiency and lifespan of the unit.
  • Inspecting and Cleaning the Drain Line: The condensate drain line will be checked and cleared of any blockages. A clogged drain can lead to water damage and increase humidity levels, affecting indoor air quality.
  • Inspecting the Blower Components: The blower components will be checked for proper airflow. Adjustments or cleaning might be needed if airflow is found to be inadequate.
  • System Test: After all checks and maintenance tasks have been completed, our technician will run the system to ensure it’s operating smoothly. This includes listening for unusual noises, checking for proper airflow through the vents, and ensuring the unit is cooling the space effectively.
  • Review and Recommendations: Finally, the technician will review the service performed with you, highlighting any concerns or additional repairs that might be needed. They’ll also offer AC maintenance tips to help keep the unit running efficiently between service visits.
