Call ASAP For AC Repairs in Hickory, NC

Air conditioning problems can happen when you least expect them, but that’s not to say they happen randomly and for no reason. Often, AC repair issues just seem random because we can’t trace them to their root cause. Fortunately, some issues come with early warning signs that—if we’re being attentive to them—can indicate that it’s time for repairs.

  • Strange Noises or Behaviors: Some symptoms of AC repair issues will make themselves noticeable, you just need to know to listen or look for them. If your AC is making strange noises or operating differently than it did in the past, it could be a sign that something’s not right.
  • Increased Energy Bills: When one of the components of your AC stops functioning properly, it usually translates into a large spike in your energy bill. Even if no symptoms are present, an energy bill increase is a common indicator of problems.
  • No or Low Airflow: If your AC has ceased to do the one thing it’s designed to do, you should turn off the unit and call for repairs. Depending on the cause, airflow issues can cause serious damage when left unchecked.

What to Know about R-22 Refrigerant

One of the most common repair calls we get for aging systems is in regards to a refrigerant leak, even if the homeowner doesn’t realize that’s the issue. Refrigerant loss leads to a lack of cooling, problems with the evaporator coil, and eventually a breakdown of the system altogether.

Unfortunately, however, if you have an older system it probably uses R-22 refrigerant. The manufacturing of R-22 refrigerant stopped in January of 2021 and, if you choose to replace it, professionals have to use reclaimed refrigerant. In fact, the last AC systems with this type of refrigerant were installed around 2010. Recharging (refilling) your air conditioner with R-22 refrigerant is very costly, and it would actually be more beneficial for you to replace the system altogether with a new higher-efficiency AC model.
