Is It Time For an AC Repair?

If you’re unsure if your air conditioner needs repairs or just routine maintenance, we have provided a list of warning signs to look out for.

Strange Noises

Listen for strange noises. If you are noticing banging, gurgling, or clicking sounds coming from your air conditioning unit, it can be a sign that a component is not working properly.
Make sure to contact an HVAC technician if you hear any strange noises. They can help diagnose the issue and get your unit back up and running in no time.

No Cool Air

This is one of the biggest indicators that there is a problem with your system. The culprit could be something as simple as dirty air filters, to something more serious such as a failed compressor.


Excess condensation or refrigerant leaks are both signs that your system may be in need of repairs. When not handled by licensed professionals, refrigerant can be dangerous, so it is best to contact a technician as soon as you notice a leak.

Energy Bills

Keep an eye on your energy bills. If your air conditioner is exerting more energy than usual to keep your house cool, then a sudden spike in your energy bills will make that apparent. If you find that your bills are shooting up, it’s time to call in a professional to assess the situation. They can pinpoint any issues with your system and offer solutions on how to cut back on energy usage.

System Age

Air conditioners’ lifespans typically range from 10 to 15 years. If your system is within that range, the cost of repairs can be more expensive than replacement costs. If you need help deciding whether you should repair or replace the unit in your home, one of our specialists can give you advice to best suit your needs.

check filters regularly

A dirty one can also cause an increase in energy bills! Clogged filters make it difficult for air to flow through, meaning your system needs to work harder than normal and will cost you more money.

humidity levels in your home

Especially during summer months when temperatures tend to increase significantly outdoors. If you notice that the air in your home is too humid, it can be a sign of an underlying issue with your air conditioning system. If humidity levels are consistently high, contact an HVAC technician right away to inspect and potentially repair your AC unit.
Don't Wait!
If you notice one or more of these problems, it may be time to schedule an AC unit repair. Zap Cooling and Heating offers 24/7 emergency service, so you don’t have to sweat through a humid summer night.

AC Repair FAQ

Question: What causes the AC to stop working?

Answer: The US Department of Energy has provided a list of the most common AC problems Americans experience. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but these are in line with what we've typically seen in the field. Learn more about common air conditioner problems with this article from US Department of Energy

Question: How to Repair an AC Compressor?

Answer: The short answer is "don't." A slightly longer answer is "you really can't." The AC Compressor is the core of your system. If you need to replace this component, the labor and part replacement would make a new HVAC system greatly more beneficial to most situations. If you suspect a bad AC Compressor, call (706) 219-1709 today for a free estimate.

Question: How much does AC Repair Cost?

Answer: This can vary wildly depending on the issue, and we almost always can identify multiple issues (typically linked to poor maintenance) on an average service call. If the AC Repair is an emergency after hours situation, or if the situation is such that a critical system part need to be replaced, you may be looking at a steep bill. In these situations, it usually makes sense to upgrade to a new, higher efficiency system to replace your old one, but we will always work with you to find a solution that fits your needs.
