A trained technician should be called to fix a refrigerant leak. You can’t just add refrigerant to a system like you would oil to a car for a few reasons:

  • Refrigerant is a dangerous thing to work with and can be hazardous if you do not have the proper experience and equipment.
  • Leaks need to be repaired correctly as refrigerant can be harmful to the environment if spilled.
  • The amount of refrigerant in the system needs to match the manufacturer’s recommendation exactly or the unit will not perform to its best ability.

A technician will be able to accurately diagnose where the leak is, whether they can solder the pipe or have to replace the coils and the precise amount of refrigerant to add to correctly charge the system.

To schedule a refrigerant service, contact the experts at Garner. Our professional team will get your unit back to speed in no time. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

There could be a few reasons your air conditioner is running but not cooling the house. Before you call an AC repair company, there are some measures you can take that may solve the problem:

  • Turn the thermostat to AUTO if it was set to ON – When turned to the ON setting, the blower will run continuously even when the unit is not producing cool air. Setting the system to AUTO allows the unit to cycle the way it was built to and recharge.
  • Change the air filter – If the filter is dirty, it might be clogging the system so air cannot circulate properly. When airflow is blocked, this could cause the system to struggle to cool the home.
  • Clean the outdoor unit – When the condenser is dirty, the warm air the unit is trying to expel cannot get out and will circulate back inside.
  • Check the circuit breaker – Make sure the breaker to the outside unit has not tripped. If the breaker has tripped, the unit will keep blowing air into the house without cooling it first. If it keeps tripping a professional will need to be called.

If you have checked these items and your unit is still not cooling the house, call the experts at Garner for repair services. We can diagnose any AC issue and fix it effectively at an affordable rate. Contact us online today for an appointment.

After performing the diagnostic, I found that the noise was coming from the very dirty filter. The customer informed me that they just finished up having the tile in the house replaced this weekend. After pulling the filter everything sounded normal again. I asked the customer if she would like for me to do an AC tune-up, but she said she just wanted to do the diagnostic since the system is only 2 years old.
