Residential Air Conditioner FAQs In Clearwater, FL
The typical cost of air conditioning repair ranges between $200 and $1,000, with the average homeowner spending roughly $350. Some more complicated repairs can cost as much as $2000, in which case your HVAC technician will discuss financing options with you; depending on your AC unit’s age, they may also recommend replacing the air conditioner rather than repairing it.
If your air conditioner is operating but not cooling your home, one possible cause is a clogged or obstructed condenser coil. When working properly, the condenser fan sucks air into the outside unit via the condenser coil, extracting heat energy from your home. Dirt, grass and other flying debris can build up between the fins and jam the coil. A dirty coil might result in decreased energy efficiency, a shortage of cold air from the registers or, in severe cases, a full system shutdown.
The best way to clean your indoor air is by installing a trusted air purification system. The best air purifiers are installed directly in your HVAC ductwork and clean your home’s indoor air as it is produced by your AC. In addition, you can help keep your home’s air clean by keeping up with your household chores. Regularly dusting, vacuuming and washing your sheets helps to remove the dust, pollen and pet dander that contribute to poor indoor air quality.
Residential HVAC Maintenance Plans in Clearwater, FL
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 makes sense to have that machine running as efficiently as possible.
A standard 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 Total Air Club Member you gain many benefits including semi-annual tune-ups, priority services, and discounted parts.
Clearwater, FL, 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 breakdowns. 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.

What makes Total Air standout from others? The technical skills of their technicians are outstanding. Other companies might say their trained and skilled, but they are not.

My AC failed this morning.
