When Do I Need Largo AC Repair Service?
While we highly recommend regular inspections to catch any problems before they grow worse. There are also many additional signs and reasons that indicate the need for maintenance:
- Electric bill increase. The cost of your monthly energy bill shouldn’t fluctuate drastically if you haven’t changed your habits recently. So when it does spike unexpectedly, you most likely only have your AC to blame. The fact of the matter is an inefficient AC has to run longer and harder and uses more energy to reach the same desired temperature as a more efficient one.
- Temperature imbalance. If you have noticed that some rooms are warmer than others, or your home just isn’t cooling like it used to, it could be attributed to one of several potential problems with your AC. Low refrigerant levels, clogged filters, dirty ductwork, and old out of date systems are the most common causes of this symptom, and all necessitate professional air conditioning repairs.
- The system is running constantly. Your HVAC system shouldn’t need to run at all times to keep your home at the right temperature. If it has always done this, you may have a unit that is too small for the air volume of your home, or your house might have inadequate insulation. If this is only a recent occurrence, you might have a coolant leak, malfunctioning compressor, or poor airflow caused by blocked ductwork.
- Unpleasant Odors. When the unit first kicks on, it is common to have a slight smell leave the vents for the first few seconds, but if there is a constant burning or other unidentifiable smell, you need to call for air conditioning repairs.
- Unusual sounds. You should never hear a banging, whirring, whining, or any other strange sounds coming from either inside the vents or from your outside compressor. This can be a sign of either a loose part(s), undue strain on the motor or excessive wear.
- Your unit is more than 10 years old. Even if it is still keeping your home cool during the summer, if your AC is more than 10 years old, it needs to be replaced. These older models are far less efficient than their modern counterparts, costing you more money each month on your statement. If you are not yet ready for a replacement, at the very least, we recommend frequent air conditioner repairs and inspections to ensure it is still in proper working order. But remember that we also offer 100% financing on installations with approved credit!

Return to install secondary drain pan. I ensured the pan was secure, the float switch is secure and the drain cap is plugged. Pictures are uploaded. Thank you for choosing Total Air!
Upon arrival to the multi scheduled system maintenance, I was shown to the a/h in the closet/garage and c/u on each side of the home. I pulled off the panel door to inspect all electrical components connections, collect amp draw/voltage readings off electrical equipment, and check the unit for cleanliness. (Upstairs closet AH) I inspected the evaporator coil and blower fan and both are free of biological growth and debris build up. The d/t temperature was within normal range (22°). All electrical components were secure and within factory range. I tested the float safety switch and confirmed it is engaged when needed. Tested the heat, and checked filter. I did the same inspection on the garage AH. The coil is encased and blower fan is clean. The d/t was within normal range 18-20°. I tested the float switch and heat. All electrical components are secured. I then vacuumed both condensate drain lines to remove and blockage or debris. I ensured this was draining properly. Both drain line
Called out today to perform a precision tune up. Checked all electronics and motor components to ensure equipment is operating properly within manufacture specifications. Replaced all filters provided by the client. Measured the temperature drop across the coil. Drain line, pan and condensate pump were heavily impacted with algae. I flushed a total of 8 gallons of hot water through the pan while vacuuming from opposite port. Took apart condensate pump and removed algae from motor and bobber. Pump was near failure due to build up. I highly recommend a drain solve treatment due to algae not breaking free after multiple gallons of hot water. While drain solve will solve the symptom I made client aware that uv sterilization will fix the problem. Checked refrigerant pressures. Tightened all wire connections. Tested safety switches. Client approved drain solve treatment. Equipment is operating properly at this time. Thank you for always choosing Total Air!

I replaced the 18 gauge T-Stat wire with 18 gauge shielded communication wire from thermostat to AirHandler and then from. AirHandler to condenser illuminating all spices. I also disconnected the splice of the float switch and plug directly into the alarm section of the board. After installing new thermostat wire I noticed that the control board was not lighting up under the display on the air handler or the condenser. Was receiving incoming voltage and receiving outgoing 24 V but no DC voltage coming out of the board. I then replaced the board and now the system is back operational.
Return to customers home to perform code at work. Pulled all the Freon out out of the system and removed evap coil. Installed new evap coil and Brazed it back together.

System is charged and dropped the temperature in home by 4 degrees before I left.

Upon arrival customer told me AC is blowing warm air. Went to the condenser and found the fan running but the suction line was not cool. Tested the capacitor and the capacitor is good. Put my gauges on the system and it was 100% empty of all Freon. Since the system was empty of Freon I pumped up the system with 334 psi of nitrogen and search for the leak.

Customer told me the AC company that put it in is no longer in business but they still keep in contact that the unit should still be under warranty. Please call customer with price of a new evaporator coil and check warranty as well.

Upon arrival customer told me the AC was not cooling the house properly. I found the evap coil slightly frozen up. I turn the heat pump side on to thaw it out real quick. The Ava coil is clean. Put my gauges on the system and it’s low on Freon. Talk to customer about doing leak search customer agreed and did a leak search on the evap coil and found the leak. Added 3 pounds to Freon so it does not freeze up right away to try to keep the house cool. No guarantee how long that will last. Also found a crack in the primary drain pan.
