Why Is My AC Leaking Water?

Monday, October 21st, 2019

Things have finally become a little cooler here in Lakewood and many of us have enjoyed the luxury of giving our AC systems a break. But that break isn’t likely to last for very long, considering how the climate here in Southern California can be.

So while you have time, you likely have been taking a look at your AC to make sure it is still doing well. At least, that is what we would do. And if you are like us, if you notice that either your indoor or outdoor unit seems to be leaking, you are wondering why.

A leaking air conditioner indicates a need for repairs, that much is easy to figure out. What you might be wondering though is what is causing the leak.

With a few weeks to go before the temperatures really start to ramp up, now is the time to take serious steps to cut your air conditioning bills. We’ve provided a few handy tips below.

Winter Is an Excellent Time to Schedule Air Conditioning Repair Services

Monday, January 29th, 2018

air-conditioning-maintenance“Winter” means something very different here in Southern California than it does to most of the rest of the country. We don’t get any deep freezes and even on the coldest nights, the weather rarely dips below freezing.

We still use heating systems to keep warm, but homeowners tend to focus much more on air conditioning. There’s little need for your AC at the moment, but that could change at any time – unexpected heat waves are hardly uncommon – and soon enough, you’ll be called upon to run it on a daily basis just to keep your home comfortable.

Monday, October 9th, 2017

frost-on-ACIf you’ve ever looked at the interior of your air conditioner, you may have noticed frost or ice building up on the coils.

Why wouldn’t there be a little frost or ice built up?  Unfortunately, that assumption is wrong. Frost on the coils is a sign of significant problems with the system and usually requires the services of a trained technician to correct.

Monday, September 11th, 2017

air-conditioning-repairHot days don’t stop just because the calendar is moving towards fall, and chances are your air conditioner has already been pushed to the maximum for the last few months. Repair calls are quite common this time of year, since older units, having handled daily work for months on end, finally get to the point where they need a repair call.

AC-repair-servicesAir conditioners are far more than a luxury in Southern California, especially in the foothill communities where temperatures can hit triple digits well past Labor Day.

How to Tell If You Should Replace an Older Air Conditioner

Monday, August 14th, 2017

air-conditioning-repairSummertime is here, and in Southern California, that means soaring temperatures. Heat waves can hit use at anytime, with the mercury climbing well above 100 degrees in the bargain, and if you have an older air conditioner, the strain of keeping it running might prove to be too much. We get a lot of repair calls this time of years and an equal number of replacement calls as well. You simply can’t go without a functioning air conditioner in this part of the world in August, but the difference in cost between a simple repair job and a flat-out replacement can be considerable. How can you tell when an older air conditioner just needs fixing and when you need to put it out to pasture in favor of a new one?
