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.

Arrived at customers house for system Check. On arrival customer showed me to air handler and closet. Remove the filter in the filter look relatively clean. After looking under the evaporator coil the evaporator coil is heavily covered with debris. Strongly urged customers to consider a pull and clean. Wrote customers estimate and sent. Unit was putting out acceptable delta-t, blower motor looks relatively clean. Unit already has a UV light. All electrical wiring with secure. Next went outside 2 condenser. Condenser was at a diagonal angle on the pad. Liquid line increase and decrease in pipe diameter a couple times. Unit compressor was either edging on it's limit or peeking over maximum of two amps. Suggested a hard start kit to the customers and percents an estimate. All pressures in readings were of acceptable limits. All electrical wiring with secure. Proper voltage being sent across contactors. Capacitor with an acceptable limits. Check in with customers and customers were happy w
Upon arrival customer told me the ac was not blowing out. I went into the attic and found the unit running but the float was going on and off. I found a clogged drain I cleared the drain and everything is flowing and condensate pump went off. I also found a real dirty filter. Put gauges on and everything is correct with the number. We have a Delta T of 18.
Upon arrival customer showed me the ac unit in the attic that needed to be tuned up. Checked the coils and it was clean. Checked all amps and volt on the air handler. Cleared out drain with nitrogen and solvent. Checked the out door unit. Checked all amps, Volts. The contactor is good. Checked the capacitor and we where reading low.

System not cooling due to a failed control board, and an additional low voltage short. Replaced control board under warranty and fixed low voltage short. System running properly at this time. While I was there I also found the secondary drain pan filling up causing the float switch to trip. Cleared secondary drain pan and verified float switch was in good working order.
Upon arrival found thermostat had failed. Inspected the rest of the system. There are issues that we addressed and went over and due to age and cost we are having Corey come out to give and estimate. We moved forward with replacing the thermostat to at least have the system run but he is aware that it could fail at anytime due to the compressor over amping and the dual run capacitor reading weak. Corey will be out today between 4-6pm. Left system in working order.

Left system in working order. After inspecting the customers air handler I noticed excessive condensation building on the air handler. Most likely due to this being in a garage. Inside the cabinet seemed rather moist as well. Both UB lights are on but passed the two-year do. Do not have bulbs with me currently, will return to install. Delta T was within satisfactory range. Coil looks clean. System in fine working order.

Upon arrival found pressures low, recommended a leak search, customer moved forward. Found leak in air handler evaporator coil. Office will reach out on availability and quote to replace. System is not cooling.
Found not cooling due to blown factory hard start. Replaced with t05 hard start and checked operation. Compressor rated for 38 lock rotor amps and pulling 34 on startup. Dual run capacitor below factory specs and is in need of replacing. Due to age and condition of compressor new system replacement is highly recommended as I can not guarantee proper operation other than while on site. Left system cooling at this time.
Cycled and inspected equipment. Found drain issue caused by false layer of growth in bottom of primary pan causing water to flow into secondary float switch. Attempted to clean growth with shop vac and was unsuccessful due to growth is stuck to bottom of primary pan. Will need to pull and clean evaporator coil/primary pan. Left system draining for now. Customer stated he wanted to get a second opinion. Recommend: pull and clean with uvc to combat growth in primary drain pan.
