Louisville Air Conditioner Repair Solutions
Our technicians are skilled at not only solving the problem, but also discovering the underlying cause to prevent future issues. The diagnostic process we use looks at the core systems of your AC unit to examine each process to ensure it is working properly. The most common solutions include:
Power Issues: Oftentimes we find there is no power connected to the AC, this may be due to an electrical issue, tripped breaker, or overheating. All of these are simple fixes we can do in one day.
Fan Belt or Fan Motor Replacement: One of the most common parts we repair is the fan belt. It produces a squealing sound and is much easier to replace before it breaks completely.
Tubing Replacement: Leaking fluid is the most common cause of a hissing sound coming from the unit. Leaking fluid is not only bad for the machine, but bad for the environment as well. Our technicians can quickly replace the tubing and recharge the system to have you up and running in no time.
Flushing the System: If you have a clogged condensate drain, our technicians will flush the system completely and apply a solution to prevent future clogs. Many of these clogs are seasonal and caused by algae, dirt, nests, or other debris that clogs the drain over time.
