Air Conditioning Service In Clearwater
When you need air conditioning service in Clearwater, the first thing you should do is call us at Total Air. Founded in 2003, we have quickly become the trusted AC repair company for St. Joseph’s Hospital and Autoway Dealerships, as well as many other residential customers. No matter if you need maintenance, repairs, or installations, we’ve got you covered! We sell and service all makes and models of HVAC units for both commercial and residential buildings. Our fast and reliable technicians will show up to your home or business on time, and will get you back to enjoying cool air in no-time.
One of the most important, yet most often forgotten air conditioning services we offer in Clearwater is preventative maintenance. Not only does this allow you the peace of mind that your AC will always be working efficiently, but you will be able to save money by fixing smaller parts as they wear down instead of dealing with giant repairs. Keeping your home cool during our hot summers can take up almost half of your monthly energy bills, so it only makes sense to have that machine running as efficiently as possible.
A typical Total Air maintenance check includes:
- Inspect thermostat. We will ensure the set temperature matches the room’s actual temperature.
- Check electrical components. Issues with the electrical connections can cause the unit to be unsafe and prone to needing more expensive air conditioning services.
- Clean coils. The condenser and evaporator coils can get dirty which will increase your energy usage while reducing the AC unit’s ability to cool your home.
- Check filter. This is what keeps the air in your home clean and healthy for your family to breathe. How often it needs to be changed depends on many factors including outdoor allergens and if you have pets that shed. Our trained air conditioning service technicians will know exactly when it needs to be replaced.
- Review system controls. This ensures the unit shuts on and off when it is supposed to, and that everything is working correctly while it is cooling your Clearwater home.
We can create a custom maintenance plan for you, and if you become a Preferred Customer you gain many benefits including semi-annual tune ups, priority services, and discounted parts.
AC Repairs And Installations
Even with maintenance, you will eventually need to have repairs or replace your Clearwater AC unit. Luckily, with our regular checks, our technicians will probably be able to warn you when you expect this to happen so you won’t suddenly be without a cold house on the hottest day of the year.
Often times it can be difficult to know whether you should pay for a repair, or if you should replace the entire unit. Some common signs that you should call for air conditioning services include:
- A steady increase in energy bills
- Your house is humid
- Not all rooms in your home are the same temperature
- The unit is leaking
While some of these may not seem serious at first, if left alone, they can cause you to experience unexpected break downs. If you are facing any of these issues and your AC unit is more than 10 years old, it may be more cost effective to replace it with a new one. One of our Clearwater air conditioning service technicians would be happy to discuss the age old question of “repair or replace?” with you to decide which is best for your needs.

Excellent service from Total Air once again! On time...honest ...knowledgable techs that are always polite and professional.
Cycled and inspected equipment. Found system off on safety switch due to a restricted drain line. Also found dual capacitor weak, and contactor pitted. Cleared drain line, installed a new dual capacitor, and contactor. Was not able to gain access to air handler due to air handler in wall with plywood covering nailed. Left system in good working order for now. Customer approved 1 year 1 system maintenance. Recommend: access to air handler on next scheduled maintenance.
I found the thermostat is having some issues, it won't let me change the time and the unit doesn't shut of after it reaches 72Â°. The thermostat should be under warranty. It's a honeywell wifi pro 8000.i recommend we replace the thermostat with a new one. Office please call the customer to schedule an appointment and also let the customer know how much its gonna cost to replace. I left the unit in working condition. I didn't charge for service call fee due to the labor warranty. Installed a new pro-8000 thermostat. Found thermostat failed upon installation. Thermostat has a error code that stated internal sesor has failed and to replace thermostat. Installed pre existing pro-8000 thermostat. Upon start up found pre existing thermostat the reversing valve function is not operating and unit will run in heat only. Hot wired reversing valve at air handler. Left system in good working order for now. Recommend: new pro-8000 thermostat and disconnect reversing valve wiring 24v at air han
The system is from 1986. A surge tripped out system. I replaced weak dual run capacitor, start capacitor w/ relay, added 2lbs of 427a and installed a surge protector. I do recommend on replacing the system, but violet is very attached to the system.. she will wait till it dyes. I recommend on us performing a maintenance on system. I just got the system up and going. I couldnâ€™t do through the system thoroughly ( late at night)..
Cycled and inspected equipment. Found system operating upon arrival. Found drain line slightly restricted and condenser coil impacted. Customer has home under construction and has been trying to replace filter as often as needed. Cleared drain and cleaned condenser coil. Left system in good working order.
There are to air handlers side by side in closet. Below is water stain at return grill. The Lennox system was 4 lbs low on 410a, added. I tightened up service valves. We are creating a history. If the system leaks refrigerant again we need to perform a leak search.. I vacuumed out drain line, no growth came out. I also noticed the Trane unit beside the Lennox has air leakage at supply plenum and dripping water down the air handler.. I put quotes together..
Upon arrival found a clugged drain line. Cleared the restriction. Left system running.
I performed a complete tune up on the ac system and cleared the drain line with coil cleaner and water. I checked all electrical components and motors, refrigerant levels and temperature differentials. The condenser fan motor is overamping and the capacitor is starting to go weak. We will need to replace on our next visit ( it's a 45/5 reading 42.23/4.87). My refrigerant levels are good and I have a delta T of 21.5Â°. I loaded my pictures to service titan and left the system in proper working condition. I renewed the membership for the customer.
I found the access door was off on the air handler and disconnect was out in attic, fixed. I found the thermostat is failed , stuck in delay mode. The transformer is burnt at air handler, the contractor failed and the dual run capacitor is weak / rusted out. These part are to only get the system running. Once the system is running, I need to check operation,amps and pressures. The system is from 2003 with wear and tear due to age. I put a quote together on repairs only to get the system going. I highly recommend on replacing the system. The office will call the set up appointment for Bryan our comfort advisor to come out..
I performed a maintenance. I checked pressures,electrical components and vacuumed drain line with cleaner. I added 1lb of 427a refrigerant to System, I replaced pitted/ burnt contactor and replaced weak dual run capacitor which has a 5 year warranty.. The system has wear and tear due to age. The condenser fan motor is slightly over amping. The air handler is contaminated with growth.. . They will like to hold back on replacing the system.. I left system in good working order..
Upon arrival found condenser fan motor over amping. When we were out replacing the compressor, capacitor, and contactor we checked amp draw and it was not over amping at that time. The supply house is closed at this time so we need to reach out tomorrow and get a price on the motor and get back with a quote. Left system in working order at this time.
Performed complete tune up on AC systen. Checked all electrical components, system pressures, temperature differentials, coils and cleared drain line. Upon inspection of air handler, found filter to be dirty so we replaced it. We also found that the UV bulb was due to be replaced so we changed that out as well. Upon inspection of condenser, the dual run capacitor was reading very low microfarads so we replaced it with a turbo capacitor with customer approval. We left the system in good working order.
I inspected condensate pump, good. The drain line was dirty, I vacuumed out and flushed with cleaner. I discussed our service contract. For now Adrianne will think about it. The system does have wear and tear due to age... I left the system in good working order..
Upon arrival performed maintenance. Inspected all electrical components, coils, pressures, and cleared drain line. Filter is okay. UV light is working. Found 45+5 MFD capacitor reading low. Recommended on replacing we moved forward with the warranty capacitor. Left system in good working order.
Completed precision tune up. The condenser dual capacitor is weak (hermetic side). The system is running and cooling well, I measured a 21 degree delta - t (55 degrees supply & 76 return temperatures). There is weak air flow coming out of the supply vents thru out the house and the vents are small. I suspect the ducts might be the problem and the small supply vents. The attic access is too small for me to fit. We would need a smaller tech to come out and check the duct work. I called and left a message for Liz about my findings and we need to collect the tune up payment from her. Return call: I inspected the ductwork. The ductwork is very old and original. Itâ€™s metal duct with insulation coming off. The attic insulation is blown over the ductwork. The supply runs are small and the diffusers are small. The system has wear and tear. There is growth and dust impacted on blower wheel which limits air flow too. I recommend on replacing the ductwork and system replacement.. talking to th
I performed a maintenance. I checked pressures, electrical components and vacuumed drain line with cleaner. Note: the drain line is 1/2â€, should be 3/4â€. It will plug up more often. I added 1lb of 410a refrigerant to get factory specs. The dual run capacitor is starting to get weak. I recommend on replacing part. I also highly recommend on installing a surge protector. We can install one at condenser disconnect box. If you wanted to protect the air handler, we will need to install another one at a/h disconnect in attic. The air handler has growth inside. I recommend a uv light to prevent growth.. I put a quote together ..
Upon arrival cleaned Evaporator Coil. Sprayed with cleaner and hosed down with water. Sealed system back. Left system in good running order.
The condenser breaker keeps tripping due to failed compressor. I checked condenser fan motor, good. I called Germaire and compressor and compressor harness is on will call. The contractor is noisy and the dual run capacitor needs to be replaced. I put a quote together on repairs. The system is out of warranty... Note: when I was a walking near condenser, their was a 1/2â€ water line in the ground which I stepped on and broke the cpvc pipe. I ran out to home depot to get materials to fix water line. I tested after I was done. When we return back we need to check full operation of system and check air handler in the attic and clean drain line too.. 4/21/20 upon arrival changed compressor. Replaced the contactor, capacitor, and added a surge protector and biflow filter drier. Added 12 pounds of 410a refrigerant to the system. Started system up. Left system in good working order.
We performed a tune up on system, we checked all electrical components and motors. The delta t was 16, we added 1lb of r427 out of jug #50. Delta t is at 21, we cleaned out the drain line. Poorly insulated suction line. Customer wanted a new thermostat but the old thermostat is glued to a mirror, we would need to use a glass drill bit. Customer is planning on getting a new system in a year. We left the system in proper working condition
Upon arrival installed surge protector, contactor, and 35+5 MFD capacitor. Asked about some water dripping from where the filter goes and it looked like in the drain pan was some backup so I cleared it. Left system in good running order.
I went through the system. The contractor failed at condenser. I jumped out to see if the compressor and fan motor came on. The Pressures are fluctuating due to non condensibles in the system. The way that the pressures are will cause major failure..The air handler is 15 years old with nicotine coating the whole inside, wear and tear. The system is R22, not in good shape.. the system needs to be replaced.. need to set up appointment for Bill to come out. If you move forward with us, Bill will credit back the $79.95.
Upon arrival performed maintenance. Signed up for the maintenance agreement. Inspected system and all of the operations. Cleared drain line. Left system in good working order. Used 1 of the 2 maintenances.
I found the drain line was restricted. I blew out with nitrogen and flushed with cleaner. I checked pressures, electrical componants. The system is from 2017. They have a one year senior care service agreement. I left the system in good working order...
Upon arrival performed maintenance. Went over all 3 systems and their operations. Down stairs main floor system- found pitted and burnt contactor and failed capacitor, replaced both components. Installed 3 surge protectors 1 on each unit they have a 3 year warranty. Discussed with customer and they wanted to move forward. Left systems in good working order.
The condenser control board has failed and badly burnt, pitted contactor. Customer approved the repairs. I picked up a new control board from the supply house (warranty), replaced it and the contactor. We cycled and monitored the system, checked for proper voltage, amps and pressures and left the system in good running order.
Upon arrival performed maintenance. Found contactor starting to pit and burn. Found failed and outlawed surge protector, installed our surge protector to protect all electrical components and from surges and voltage fluctuation, also prolong the system. Installed both parts. System does have some wear and tare due to age 10 years old. Left system in good working order.
