Signs You Need an Emergency AC Repair

Signs You Need an Emergency AC Repair

During the hottest days of summer, air conditioners are lifesavers, but only if they work. And it's not always easy to tell when your A/C will quit all of a sudden and require you to find emergency repair services in Toronto. Here are a few signs to pay attention to when you're facing an emergency.

Strange Noises
Most people can hear their air conditioners from far away. An A/C in good condition produces a consistent whirring sound. However, there are some sounds that you should never hear from this machine, such as loud clanging or sputtering sounds. Do not ignore odd sounds from an air conditioner and investigate each one you hear. If the noises are concerning, contact A-Plus Quality, HVAC Services in the Greater Toronto Area, immediately to have a technician take a look at your A/C.

Warm Air Currents
Expect a stream of warm air from an air conditioner that is not working correctly. The fan may still be running, but the air will never cool. The main cause could be a broken compressor or low refrigerant.

High Levels of Humidity Indoors
Obviously, you'll notice the hot, stuffy air as you sit indoors. This is the increased level of humidity that makes the room too hot to bear. Opening the window helps, but with no wind indoors, the room is still unacceptably uncomfortable. When you hear the A/C running but still feel sweaty, this is a sign that your unit is broken.

Excessive Dirt or Dust
This is the least obvious sign to tell, but when you notice a thick collection of dirt or dust on your air conditioner's vents, it may be time for a repair. A dirty A/C has blockage that prevents cool air from circulating around the room. An additional sign is a dirty filter that needs to be replaced. If it's not replaced after a long period of time, the air will continue blowing, your energy bills will remain high, but you'll barely feel any coolness.

Every damaged appliance has signs that it needs to be fixed immediately. Some people know when they need an emergency A/C repair immediately while others never notice the differences at all. Even if you discover a few signs on your own, your best option is to contact A-Plus Quality, HVAC Services in the Greater Toronto Area, to have a certified technician take a look. If you are in need of an emergency repair, we offer 24/7 repair services- contact us anytime.

  • On July 8, 2021, A Plus Quality Inc installed a boiler in my house. The company did a great job. The manager, Shak, came to give me a very detailed estimate. He also followed up every steps. He had a good team to come to do the installation. After installation, they check and explaining to me everything before leaving. I am really impressed. Besides, the office manager, Sandi, was very helpful too. I would like to recommend A Plus Quality Inc to my friends.

  • The boiler at our church died in January 2021 and we urgently needed a replacement. A Plus Quality responded right away. Despite the pandemic they managed to order all required parts and install them in about a week (it was a big job). The team was really professional and the price was reasonable. I would highly recommend A Plus Quality.

  • Why should I maintain my Furnace or AC?

    An annual maintenance will extend the lifetime of your heating and cooling unit. The technician will diagnose and repair any problem with the unit before it fails, so you won't need to worry about any problems when the weather gets very hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter.

  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.

  • What are mini-split advantages?

    Just as the name implies, a “mini-split” system is a “split system” however available in smaller capacities, for single room to whole house conditioning. Mini-split systems may range from as small as 9,000 BTUh per hour, comparable to say, a small window AC unit, for individual room use, up to 4 and 5 ton capacities for “Room By Room” (also known as “Zoning”) and whole house conditioning. With near universal design, mini-splits are “heat pumps” which provide both heating and cooling for a home. Here are key advantages when compared to traditional split systems:

    Efficiency- Mini-splits are highly engineered systems which offer attractive operating efficiencies, in many instances, eligible for utility company rebates.
    Heat Pump- Most mini-split systems are heat pumps, providing year-round comfort.
    Solar friendly- Due to very low power requirements, mini-splits are an ideal complement to “Net Zero Energy” homes, or any home using renewable power.
    Carbon footprint- Mini-splits are 100% electric, with zero operating emissions of any type.
    Zoning- Most mini-split manufacturers offer systems capable of room-by-room “zoning”, to account for peak demands of a room based upon construction type, exposure orientation and usage.
    Variable capacity- Mini-splits are typically DC inverter driven. That is, a variable speed compressor which modulates in proportion to instantaneous demand. Most conventional split systems, by comparison, operate with an ON-OFF strategy. (Would you use an ON-OFF switch as the accelerator in your vehicle?)
    Location, Location, Location!- Mini-split outdoor units are compact; they can be located far away from noise-sensitive areas, such as bedrooms and home offices. Mini-split indoor units have the ability to be installed where conventional systems cannot.
    They’re perfect for additions and remodels where access to current HVAC system is difficult to access.
    Modern mini-split systems are remarkably quiet; in fact, many times their operation is unnoticed by the end user.

  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.
