Air Conditioning Services You May Need This Summer

The heat is coming and some of the humidity is already here. In our almost 50 years of providing air conditioning services in Orange Park, FL and the surrounding areas, we have seen the different types of repairs each season can bring. As you start to run your air conditioner for this summer, there are a few types of repairs you may want to keep an eye out for:

  • Clogged condensate drain pipe – the condensate pipe in your air conditioning system takes the excess water that has accumulated in the condensate tray and removes it from your property. Clogs from debris and growth – mildew, mold, algae – can block the pipe so that the water no longer drains properly, possibly creating puddles or water leaks. In order to fix this, the drain pipe should be thoroughly cleaned out by a technician.
  • Dirty coils – there are two components in your air conditioner in which there are coils: the evaporator and the condenser. Both components’ coils can get covered in dirt and dust, which can affect how the coils work. Cleaning the coils thoroughly will eliminate this problem.
  • Refrigerant leaks – refrigerant leaks can lead to other problems, such as lack of cooling, stress on the compressor and icing on the evaporator coils. They can also be tough to find and require specialized training to handle them. If you suspect you have a refrigerant leak, call your J & W Heating and Air specialist.
  • Tripping breaker – your air conditioner has its own circuit in your property’s electrical box that is designated by a specific breaker. The breaker is a safety device designed to turn off by itself should the power draw be too strong on the property’s electrical system; if it trips, there is a reason. Sometimes the breaker itself can be faulty, but more than likely there is an electrical problem in the system. NOTE: if you try to push the breaker back to the “on” position and encounter strong resistance, leave it alone. Forcing a breaker into place can cause serious problems. Electrical problems with your air conditioner are not a DIY repair, so it’s best to call an expert to review what’s happening.
  • Dirty air filter – a dirty air filter is an easy fix, but left unchanged, it can cause multiple problems with your air conditioning system. Why? A dirty air filter obstructs the air flow in your system, essentially depriving it of the air it needs to operate properly. Homeowners can change the air filter, or your J & W Heating and Air specialist can do it for you.

Just had an entirely new, full HVAC install done at our old house in Riverside, which was a fairly big job. Brian and... Will did the installation, and were awesome. There was going to be issues leveling the air handler in the attic, so they moved it to a new spot and hung it instead, getting new parts/changing the plan on the fly. We're much happier with this new setup and location of the air handler. I really appreciated this, their professionalism/thoroughness, and flexibility. Brian and Will worked super-hard, and double-checked everything once the job was done. Would use this company more

Two installers here early this morning. Worked all day. Very professional, extremely well mannered and quick to answer... all my questions. They are Dustin and Robert. Both men went above just installing my new unit, they were personable and knowledgeable in what they were doing. I was surprised when I found out these two hadn't been working that long together. They worked extremely well together. I highly recommend this two more

A snake crawled into my outdoor condenser and stopped my 16 year old Trane last week on Thursday. The power surge took... out my blower unit circuit board and the motor. I called J&W and Rob was over within two hours of my call. I was spec'd a new York 17 seer system and it was up and running on Monday. Technicians Jason and Brian arrived promptly and every facet of the installation was thorough. When completed, I would not of even known they were there except they left my garage cleaner! Thanks J&W!read more
