Should I repair or replace my home AC unit in Largo?

Deciding whether to repair or replace your home AC unit depends on several key considerations. First, evaluate the age of your unit; if it's approaching or past its expected lifespan (typically 10-15 years), replacement may be more cost-effective in the long run. Assess the cost of repairs – if they exceed 50% of the price of a new unit, replacement often makes sense. Consider energy efficiency; newer units are more efficient and can lead to long-term savings. Finally, factor in ongoing maintenance costs and the unit's reliability. A professional HVAC technician can provide valuable insights to make the best decision for your specific circumstances.

How much does it cost to install a new residential AC unit in Largo?

The cost of installing a new residential AC unit can vary widely based on multiple factors. On average, homeowners can expect to pay between $3,000 to $7,000 for the unit and installation. However, this cost can fluctuate based on factors such as the AC unit's size, efficiency rating, brand, and the complexity of the installation. Additional expenses may arise if ductwork modifications are required, or if a new thermostat is needed. It's essential to consult with HVAC professionals to get accurate estimates tailored to your specific needs and budget.

Why is my air conditioner running but not cooling my Largo home?

Airflow restrictions caused by a dirty or clogged air filter might lower cooling effectiveness. A leak or other problem may cause low refrigerant levels, which can also cause insufficient cooling. The AC unit may not accurately communicate with a broken thermostat. Condenser coils that are clogged or unclean, electrical faults or compressor problems can also reduce the cooling efficiency. These problems can be found and fixed with the use of routine maintenance and expert inspections, thereby restoring your AC's cooling capacity.

AT TOTAL AIR, WE OFFER:

We know that air conditioning repairs are never well-timed, that’s why we also offer our clients special financing plans with approved credit! When you need reliable services at a competitive and honest price, choose Total Air.

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!

Follow up call Thursday 2-4 to verify charge. Materials added 3lbs 410A Customer said the other day the AC went up in the 80s. Eventually it cooled down again but took a long time. I found some water in the float switch and initially thought it was backed up. Upon further diagnosis I found the evaporator coil to have frozen. This is a straight cool system. Refrigerant levels and delta temperatures are low. Refrigerant needs to be adjusted. Customer agreed to add 3lbs. Unit is now cooling well. Follow up Thursday 2-4 to verify refrigerant levels. Did a spot leak check on the system and didn’t get any hits.

Called out today due to no cooling. Upon arrival air handler was running but the condenser was not. Found ants in the coil of the contactor. Replaced the contactor and found that the compressor would not turn on due to a failed hard start. Removed the hard start from the circuit and tested system operation. Checked refrigerant pressures. Took amp draws. Tested capacitor. Measured the temperature drop across the coil. Evaporator coil is impacted with drywall dust due to remodel. I spoke with owner about replacing the contactor, hard start and cleaning the evaporator coil after remodel is done. Client chose to have me replace the contactor today to get the system up and running and then install the hard start next month. Equipment is now operating. This machine is 10 years old and has a compressor that is struggling. Client is aware that the machine is coming to the end of it’s lifespan. Thank you for always choosing Total Air!

2nd option - dispatch see notes (pic of bm model/serial number & size taken on site); Upon arrival the thermostat was in the off position & screws missing from the package unit doors. I found that all capacitors were within specs but a failed blower motor. Further diagnostic could be performed after the blower motor is replaced to tell the condition of the package unit 2003 package unit. I also noticed a pitted worn contactor and deteriorating outdoor coils that makes the system run inefficient. Condenser coils get rid of all the heat in the home also, condenser fan motor is leaking oil at the shaft. (See pictures). repairs quoted do not guarantee the system will need further repairs, so we are recommending system replacement options 2003 package unit with a failed psc blower motor. R-22;system has visual issues including oil leaking on the condenser fan motor, pitted contactor & blower motor replacement. Recommended getting a free quote on system replacement options….

Upon arrival, begin job replacing condenser stand first recovered, refrigerant and disconnected high and low voltage power from system. I next cut out condenser from house and stand and removed from condenser space. Conducted deep cleaning of condenser unit and found it very dirty. It is now clean and coil is clear of any debris. I disassembled old wooden condenser stand and removed. I then constructed a block stand and placed the hurricane pad down along the blocking I connected 2 inch metal strapping down to the foundation and connected hurricane pad, secured, blocking. I moved condenser back to stand and original placement and connected condenser with metal strapping down to hurricane pad.

No cool, System is less then one year old that we installed, outdoor unit not coming on, diagnosed and found the yellow wire for cooling outside was not receiving voltage, wire has a break in it somewhere, was able to utilize the green wire to take the place of the yellow wire to make the system come on, system also required a maintenance, quoted for our maintenance plan membership and performed maintenance today. You will get another visits for maintenance. I would call and schedule a maintenance visit 6 months from now. System is operational at my departure In cooling mode.

Notes: customer keeps thermostat around 79° in the day and 77° at night. They pour down the drain line often because it tends to back up. Summary: refrigerant levels are slightly low from factory range. Adding 1lbs of refrigerant will get it back up to standard. On the next visit if levels have dropped I suggest a leak search to locate the leak. Based on the age if there is a major repair I’d consider investing towards a new unit instead.

I was called out today because system is not working properly. System is blowing air but not cooling. Family of four with one baby and one toddler. Olivia was previously told that she may have a leak in the system. I performed a complementary leak search and did not find a leak. I found that the capacitor was dead and the compression ratio is very high. I recommend it as an immediate repair to get the system back up and running, was to replace the capacitor, but due to the high compression ratio the compressor is draining the capacity of the capacitor, and therefore the capacitor may not last long until the compressor is replaced , I provided customer with an estimate to replace both the capacitor as well as the compressor. Olivia wishes to have the capacitor replace right now, but wishes to speak to a comfort advisor about replacing the system. The dollar amount paid for the capacitor will be credited towards the purchase of a new system.

One time tune up. Upon arrival to the scheduled system maintenance, was informed the air handler was in the attic and condenser unit is on the side of the house. I pulled off the panel door to the indoor unit and inspected all electrical components connections inside the air handler, collected amp draw and voltage readings off electrical equipment, and check the unit for cleanliness. The air handler unit has accumulated biological growth and will continue to get worse. Recommend installing a Germicidal Ultraviolet Light System to help keep the indoor unit clean including the indoor coil and produce better indoor air quality. The evaporator coil plastic pan is starting to get dirty and blower fan wheel is starting to get dirty. The temperature split is 18 degrees in cooling mode and within normal range. Checked and tightened all electrical components to make sure they were secure and within factory range. Vacuumed the condensate drain line to remove any blockage or debris. The air filte

I returned to replace the thermostat wire throughout the entire system. System is now back up and running. I also recommended that the customer at another 2 pounds of refrigerant to the system as the data plate rating for subcoolcool is 10° and the current sub cooling was 8.4. The customer agreed and approved to move forward with that scope of work.

Low voltage short found from brittle corroded low voltage wires from the outdoor unit. The low voltage short fried, the contactor and transformer that need to be replaced to get the system up and running. A small wire repair can be performed but recommend a 24 v wire pull from the air handler to the outdoor unit to avoid another low voltage short. Also, recommend a surge protector be installed. Costly repairs may outweigh system replacement options & recommended speaking to a comfort advisor about a more efficient ac system.

Capacitor was completely drained & the hard start kit was reading 169mf.(weak to only run the compressor). Recommend a bandage repair to get the system running. Bandage repair does not guarantee further mechanical breakdowns. We still need to verify the compressor & condenser fan motors amp draws to see what is draining the starting components. Costly repairs that do not guarantee further mechanical breakdowns, we strongly recommend replacing the unit.

I returned to reprogram the indoor control board. Programming was successful. I advise the customer that his system most likely has a leak as his system was severely low on refrigerant. I did a brief check to see if there was anything quickly obvious and was not able to uncover a leak. I recharged the system with 7.3 pounds of refrigerant and comped it for the customer due to his troubles with scheduling. I would like to set up a return visit to come back and check the pressures in 3 to 4 weeks. Please reach out to customer to schedule in that timeframe. Please reschedule for last call for Monday. Board did not come programmed and needs to be programmed with uploader.

After arriving thermostat was lit and operational. However the inside nor the outside unit will turn on. I tried, jumping the system out at the thermostat wiring and the system still would not turn on. I then went up to the air handler and used a ECM motor tester to turn the motor on manually with the tester and the motor came on By doing so I bypassed the board inside the air handler. By performing test, it indicates that by bypassing the control board the control board is not operational. Control board needs to be replaced under warranty as well as the customer agreed to invest in search protector for both the indoor and outdoor unit
