Repair AC services for homeowners in South Florida usually revolves around three key symptomatic issues that point to deeper problems with the indoor and outdoor assemblies: Units blowing warm air, frozen AC units, units leaking Freon or water. While several other problems may arise in the life of a central air unit, the above account for nearly 80% of our service calls on a daily basis.
Tackling these Repair AC issues means running diagnostics on several parts of the central air conditioning unit including evaporator, blower, condenser, compressor, fan motor, filter and thermostat.
Probably the number one reason for residential customers call an HVAC contractor and subject our recent billboard campaign “We’ll Make It Blow Harder!”. It was also covered in a recent article on our site entitled “Why is my Central AC blowing warm air”.
Usually the problems lie with the outside compressor where outside debris and dirty, has collected over the manifest and housing to affect air emission. Removing this dirt may solve the issue otherwise our teams digs into general wiring and internal circuitry.
Indoors, we also inspect coils and air filters to see if any dust or dirt build up is restricting air flow. Other areas worth consideration are low refrigerant and electrical issues.
Poor air flow and low refrigerant pressure may be the culprits. However, a missing or faulty float switch may also be a suspect, one of the reasons we sometimes suggest installing a secondary switch with an auxiliary evaporator pan to capture excess water leaking out the unit.
This annoying issue may be caused by a blocked drain line or missing float switch described above. A frozen evaporator could lead to ice build-up on the evaporator coil. However, it’s usually the backup of water and algae preventing drainage which are the main protagonists. Common Repair AC suggestions for this issue include but are not limited to a drain line flush out as part of a broader system detox.

If you have done your homework you know that the EPA recommends replacing your AC if it’s over 10 years old. In fact, even eight-year old systems often require extensive AC repair work. In these cases, Air Pros can help determine if it’s no longer worthwhile to repair AC but rather purchase and install a new unit. This is especially true if the unit needs frequent AC repairs, makes a lot of noise or has a low score on the EPA’s home assessment. In this case, Air Pros offers zero cash down financing and up to $500 off new units for customers in certain areas.
