Should I repair or replace my home air conditioner near Austin TX?

A few reasons you may want to replace your home air conditioner rather than repair it in Austin, TX include:

  • Your air conditioner breaks down often. 
  • Your air conditioner does not cool you home effectively.

Does a higher SEER rating on my home air conditioner cool better?

If your home air conditioner has a higher SEER rating, it can cool your home more efficiently than other systems. Since the higher SEER rating can make your air conditioner more efficient, it will also typically cost you less on energy costs each month. Although, you should ensure that your air conditioner’s SEER rating matches your specific needs to ensure that it is able to work its most efficiently in your area's climate.

How do I fix my AC refrigerant leak near Austin TX?

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.

Why is my air conditioner running but not cooling the house?

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.

Excellent customer service




Review of Garner Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.

Our technician Max was very professional and explained everything was doing on this service call. He mentioned some things we should keep an eye on in future that could need attention. I expected to be told I needed to spend $xxx for something. Very reasonable price for an hour plus visit. Did not try to sell me anything. Said our system was functioning fine. I have found my new HVAC company.

Good service




Review of Garner Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.

Naturally we all like for our big ticket items, like an air conditioner, to last for more then 10 years without any problems. However, in today's time that is sheer impossible. But I got good service and appreciate the mechanic's knowledge and professionalism. I feel he did an excellent job, I am very satisfied.
