Picture this. It’s mid-July, highs forecast in the low 90s, you’re having family in for the weekend, and Friday afternoon, you notice the house is warming up. You place your hand on the cooling register, and darn, only lukewarm air is coming out. Or maybe the fan’s not blowing at all. It’s clearly time to call Cincinnati AC repair that you can trust to come to your home, then diagnose and fix the problem as soon as humanly possible.
For this type of issue, there’s no better option in the greater Cincinnati area than Jansen Heating & Air Conditioning. Our skilled, certified professional cooling and heating technicians have a stellar reputation for prompt, efficient and effective AC fixes, and all done at a fair price.
No Matter the Problem With Your AC
The AC technician first will determine whether the broken AC issue is a system that’s not operating at all or one that just isn’t working as intended. There’s a big difference between an air conditioner that won’t kick on at all, and one that seems to be operating but just isn’t cooling or dehumidifying the air.
AC not operating: This could be the power supply – either a switch turned off, a circuit breaker that’s tripped, an incorrect thermostat setting (such as the setting on “heat” rather than “cool”), or some other electrical malfunction. If one of the first three things is the issue, you should check and correct those yourself before calling in a pro. It could also mean a mechanical breakdown, for instance, in the compressor or blower motor, which is a more serious issue that the technician will need to diagnose.
AC operating but not cooling: This could involve a whole range of issues, ranging from the simple (registers blocked, air filter logged) to the more complex (dirty heat-exchange coils, low or leaking refrigerant). If the inadequate cooling is happening in certain areas or rooms, rather than the whole house, the problem likely is related to air distribution – the ductwork or registers serving that area.
Unless you can find an easy AC fix yourself, your trusted Cincinnati air conditioning repair outfit will need to figure out what’s wrong and then fix the issue promptly and effectively.
