What are the signs of a bad AC capacitor?

Your air conditioner capacitor is the device that provides your unit with the initial power boost it needs to cycle on. It also supplies power to the AC that allows the unit to complete a cooling cycle. Some signs that your capacitor may not be working include:

  • The air conditioner will either not turn on or take a while to start after you turn it on.
  • The unit is not blowing cold air.
  • There is a humming noise coming from the AC.
  • The unit keeps shutting down.

Do you suspect a bad AC capacitor? Garner Heating & Air Conditioning can help! We provide accurate and reliable AC repair services at competitive prices. Contact us today to learn more!

How long do AC units last?

On average, you can expect your AC unit to last between 10 - 15 years. To prolong the life of your unit, make sure to:

  • Have it serviced regularly - Maintenance service has been shown to not only help central air conditioning systems last longer, but also run more efficiently and ward off future breakdowns.
  • Run it reasonably - Our Texas summers can be brutal. However, if the temperature hits over a hundred degrees outside, trying to cool your home to 60 degrees will put undue stress on the unit and shorten its working life. 
  • Change filters on time - Changing the air filters in your home helps your AC run more smoothly by allowing air to circulate easier. New air filters also collect more dust and dirt that will prevent extra debris from getting into the system.

To learn more, contact the experts at Garner Heating & Air Conditioning today! We offer professional AC installation services guaranteed to keep you and your family cool for years to come.

How much does it cost to replace an AC capacitor?

On average, the repair cost to replace an AC capacitor runs around $300 - $400 for a professional technician to complete. You can expect the job to take between 1 - 2 hours. 

For a more accurate estimate, Garner Heating & Air Conditioning can help! We offer “Peace Of Mind” pricing, which means we provide the price before doing the repair and never add an additional charge on top of it. Contact us today to learn more!

How much does a new AC system cost in Driftwood?

Having a new air conditioning system installed in Driftwood can cost anywhere from $7,000-$15,000, with most people paying an average of $10,000. Some of the factors that can influence the cost of installation include the labor costs, the size of your home and the size, brand and type of air conditioner you want installed.

Garner Heating & Air Conditioning offers the best AC services in Driftwood. To have a new AC system installed in your home, give us a call today!

How often should my HVAC system be serviced?

Along with improving your system’s efficiency and helping your units to last longer, regular HVAC maintenance can find any problems your heating and cooling systems may be having and can help to prevent future problems from occurring. HVAC systems need to be serviced once a year. Typically, it’s ideal to have your AC serviced in the Spring and your heater serviced in the Fall. This way, you can rest assured that your HVAC systems will last you through the months you’ll use them the most.

To get on our HVAC maintenance plan, give Garner Heating & Air Conditioning a call today!

When should I consider replacing my HVAC system?

HVAC systems typically last around 15-20 years before they’ll need to be replaced, but you can help to extend their useful life by having them properly maintained. However, they may need to be replaced sooner if they break down frequently or lose efficiency. Some common signs you may need to have your HVAC systems replaced soon include:

  • Higher energy bills.
  • The cost to have your HVAC unit repaired is more than half the cost of a new unit.
  • Uneven temperatures in your home.
  • Loud noises coming from the unit.
  • Unpleasant odors coming from your HVAC system.

Master bedroom HVAC System: On arrival homeowner stated that they noticed the bedroom was not cooling off when running the AC. I turned the thermostat to COOL mode. I checked the drain line and drain pan and verified that they were clean and clear. Went outside and noticed oil residue along the service ports of the condenser unit. Checked the refrigerant level and found the system to be extremely low on R-410a. I was able to use soap bubble leak detection solution to verify a refrigerant leak coming from the Schrader valve of the liquid line service port. Used my valve core tool and tightened it to spec. I then recharged the system with R-410A refrigerant. I completed performance and safety testing on the system. Verified everything was operating within manufacture’s specifications for operation. System operating with a 10°SH and a 10°SC Everything is working at this time.

On arrival, I met with Mr. Adam, and he showed me the inspection report which reported a yellow flame at the burners. I turned the thermostat to heating mode and found the flame coming back into the burners and some soot build up over the heat exchanger burners. I did notice when installation of the LP kit was originally done, the mixing screws were never installed. I went through the LP conversion kit box and found that two of the four mixing screws were missing. Installed new LP kit at furnace, adjusted fuel pressure to 11inWC and did a CO test at furnace and inside home. Verified everything was operating within manufacture’s specifications for operation. Everything is working at this time.

Main Common Area HVAC System: On arrival I found the indoor blower motor would not turn on. Tested the run capacitor and found it to have failed below value. Went to spin the blower wheel and found that it had slid off the blower motor shaft and was rubbing against the indoor blower housing. Removed the blower motor and noticed that a substantial amount of grease had leaked out of the motor which caused the wheel hub to slide off the shaft. Recommend replacement of the indoor blower motor to return system back to operation. Installed new indoor PSC Blower Motor, installed new run capacitor and tested system in both heating and cooling modes. Verified everything was operating within manufacture’s specifications for operation. Everything is working at this time.

Service diagnostic found that the condensate drain line was clogged. Water had backed up into the secondary drain and tripped the safety switch. The drain line was piped in a way that prevented treating or clearing the drain effectively. I installed a vent on the primary drain that allows the trap and the drain to be cleared. I then cleared the drain and flow tested the drain line with water. I also treated the drain line. System was running at the time of departure.

Performed AC cool check. Checked electrical, mechanical, safety, and performance of the system. The door switch for the furnace was bypassed. I wired the door switch back in so that it turns off the power while open. The capacitor for the blower motor had been replaced but was unsecured and left hanging by the wires so I secured the capacitor in place. There was a start kit installed on the condenser and it was also unsecured, so I secured it as well. The secondary drain line is piped into the secondary pan and could flow water without tripping the switch in the pan. No other major issues were found. See attached checklist for full tune-up details. Options for repair were presented to the customer and she chose to have a safety switch installed on the secondary drain line. Repair was completed and the system was function checked. System was running at the time of departure.

Performed semiannual maintenance on one heat pump heating system. Inspected all Performance, Mechanical and Safety Systems. I found that the April Aire 4” Media Filter was extremely clogged up creating an inflow restriction across the indoor coil. They had a new filter on-site, so I changed it out. Tested the refrigerant system and verified the system was operating with a 10° subcooling value and had the proper heat transfer across both indoor and outdoor coils. Verified everything was operating within manufacture’s specifications for operation. Everything is working at this time. See attached checklist for full tune-up details.

Not being an air conditioner repair person I have to take the technician’s word that they did a great job. I thought some of the prices he quoted was way out of the ball park. Thought Mr Torres was a pleasant guy and courteous.
