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.

FAQ

  • Why is there ice building up on the copper pipes?

    There can be many reasons why the refrigerant pipes are freezing up but the most common issue is low refrigerant levels. If your AC unit has ice buildup turn off the unit for at least 4 hours and call us at 416-410-0337

  • What is a heat pump?

    Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.

  • Most common Boiler Issues

    - Boiler fails to ignite
    - Low pressure
    - Strange Noises
    - Boiler is not responding to the thermostat
    - Cold Radiators
    - Boiler leaking or dripping
    - Boiler cycling very fast
    - Available Hot water but No Heat

  • 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.
