When to Call for Hickory AC Repairs

Air conditioners are complex machines, and every component of the machine must be in proper working order for the system to run. Sometimes, all it takes is one little thing to leave your AC and your HVAC system inoperable. But don’t worry—that doesn’t mean you need air conditioning replacement. It might be something very easy to fix.

So before picking up that phone to call for air conditioning repair service in Hickory, NC, check that your system isn’t suffering from:

  • Load Control (Power Manager): This is a voluntary program used by electric companies, which allows them to interrupt your air conditioning power for a short amount of time throughout the day. The conditions may vary depending on the company, but in general, these times of reduced power should only be happening during the middle of the weekdays—the times when the average homeowner is least likely to be home. Many homeowners have enlisted in this program way back during their air conditioning installation and may have forgotten about it. If the AC doesn’t come back on a few hours later, call us, and we’ll help you get to the bottom of the problem.
  • Tripped Breakers: A quick peek at the electrical panel should inform you if your AC has tripped the breaker. If the circuit breaks repeatedly, it could warrant the need for air conditioning maintenance.
  • Clogged Air Filter: If your AC isn’t blowing cold air, one likely culprit could be the air filter. A clogged and dirty air filter will restrict air flow and could lead to worse problems down the road. Replace it, let the AC run, and check if the airflow improves.
  • Thermostat Program: Sometimes, the cause of your low airflow problems is nothing more than a thermostat issue. It’s not uncommon for us to receive calls on weekday holidays, when the AC is running its usual weekday setback cycle to save energy. Alternatively, your AC might be set to the "on" function instead of "auto."
