Signs Your AC Unit May Be Malfunctioning

How Do You Know if Your AC Unit Needs Repair? 

If you own an AC unit in Jacksonville, it stands to reason you live in an area where temperatures peak during summer. During extremely hot spells, AC units are working overtime. During these extended periods of high temperatures is when older AC units that have not been serviced for some time, may malfunction or entirely break down. 

Finding out where the problem stems from may not be all that simple. Some malfunctions may be repaired, while other malfunctions may be a sign that your AC unit has seen better days and needs replacing. 

Do You Need A New AC Unit Or AC Emergency Repair

Not all malfunctions are the same. A reputable AC Repair service will be able to assist you with any necessary repairs, parts replacement, and if needed, a new AC Unit. 

It is important to have your AC unit serviced regularly and have the ducts cleaned. This will ensure your AC unit’s proper function and the flow of clean healthy air circulating in your home or office. Don’t wait till temperatures rise beyond comfort for an unpleasant surprise, needing emergency solutions. Your AC unit may already be showing signs of malfunction.

Signs Your AC Unit Is Malfunctioning

  • You find warm or hot air is blowing through the vents
  • If you find water puddling under the AC Unit
  • If ice is forming on the evaporator coil of the AC unit
  • Any hot spots in your home 
  • If a melted plastic odor is present, it could point to burnt wiring, in this case, shut down your AC unit and call for emergency repair service
  • If your home breaker trips in coincidence with your AC system cycle, there could be a problem with your AC’s electrical components 
  • Any issues with HVAC systems, which draw massive amounts of power, could present serious hazards

Is your AC unit not cooling your home or office efficiently and yet it still runs up your monthly bills?  If you find your energy bills have been unusually high, this could also be an indication that your cooling system is working too hard to get the job done and that means something is not functioning properly. You probably need your HVAC Serviced

If your AC unit is repeatedly malfunctioning, beyond repair, or is costing you a small fortune to run, then an upgrade to a newer model will reduce your energy bills for years to come. 

An AC unit does more than keep your home temperature comfortable during extremely hot weather. An AC unit also contributes to the quality of air circulating in your home. When your AC unit malfunctions or breaks down, unexpectedly, you may be putting yourself and your family at risk.

I will be recommending J&W to my friends and family. They were very professional and on time. Did a very well job in... a quality manner. Dustin, Mark, and Robert. Worked very well together and was in and out with no cleanup for me to do. Thanks so much for getting my home back to a cool environment.read more

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 again.read 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 men.read 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
