Air Conditioning Repair Pinellas Park FL
We understand how crucial it is to have your home air conditioning unit working at full capacity to give you the most comfortable environment. That’s why AC repair is a serious business and having a perfectly functioning air conditioner is so important. No matter how you may try to prevent any issues, there is no need to worry - Total Air Inc. provides expert air conditioner tune-ups and AC preventative maintenance services in Pinellas Park, FL and the surrounding areas at an affordable rate. We are also experts at installing new air conditioning systems for when the time comes to replace your unit.
The age, efficiency, frequency of repairs, energy costs, and long-term plans of the AC unit in your home all play a role in the decision to replace it. Replacement can save you money on energy bills and lower future repair costs if your air conditioner is old, inefficient, and in need of frequent repairs. Modern units are more energy-efficient and eco-friendly, providing better comfort. Additionally, if you plan to stay in your home for the foreseeable future, a new AC can enhance comfort and potential resale value. You can make an informed choice based on your unique situation by consulting HVAC experts.
A typical lifespan of an air conditioning unit can range from 10 to 15 years in Florida, where they are used frequently due to the state's warm and humid environment. The actual replacement frequency, however, can change depending on the unit's quality, usage patterns, maintenance needs, and regional climate conditions. A unit's lifespan can be increased with routine maintenance, but as the system ages, it may become less energy-efficient and more prone to failure. It can be helpful to consider replacement after 10–15 years or when the system's performance starts to significantly decline.
The size of your home, the type of system you're installing, the brand and model you select, the local labor rates, and any additional features or components can all have a big impact on the price of a new HVAC system. For smaller homes, replacing a simple HVAC system can cost between $3,000 and $7,000 on average. For larger homes or more complex systems, the cost may be between $7,000 and $15,000 or more. To get a more precise estimate for your unique needs and location, it's crucial to get quotes from reliable HVAC contractors.

Signs Your AC Needs Repair
It's pretty rare for an air conditioner to be completely fine and then shut down out of nowhere. If your system is making unusual noises, like screeching, banging, or knocking, it means that something is wrong and it needs attention from an HVAC tech. In addition, don't put off calling an HVAC company if you notice your system is not cooling your home as well as it should be. Inadequate cooling is a big indication that your unit is having to work really hard to do its job and needs service.
There are a few things you can do to help your air conditioning system before it completely breaks down or before calling an HVAC tech:
Check Air Filters
We can't stress the importance of changing your air filter enough! If your filter is dirty, it will force your unit to work much harder than normal to circulate air through your home. Simply changing your filter may cause your AC repair to fix itself!
Is your thermostat set to the right temperature and calibrated correctly? If your thermostat is sending the wrong signals to your AC, it could be the reason why it's acting up.

Raga - Pinellas Park, FL 33781
The technicians were courteous and did the installation in a timely manner. I am happy you guys were able to accomodate me in such a short period of time. My only complain was when I checked behind the filter after they were gone where the leaking with my old AC happened, it was not cleaned up. I clearly remember when the guy who came and gave me an estimation of the price of the entire unit explained to me what they were supposed to do in the installation and that’s to include cleaning and putting something where the water was dripping with the old unit. When I took out the filter, the basin which was put there by the other technician who came to checked the leakage over a week ago was still in there. I don’t think the installer bother to even check below. It was still so dirty and still damp.
still no air

Called out today to replace a temperature sensor. Replaced sensor and wired in. System started up and I noticed that the fan motor was seized.

Upon arrival customer told me we were out on September 21 in the unit is doing the same thing as it was before. Turn the thermostat on went to the condenser condenser was shot on and off every 10 to 20 seconds. Put my gauges on the system and it is super low on 410 A. Went into the air handler and there is a lot of oil on the condensate pan and in the drain. The evaporator coil is leaking and needs to be replaced and it’s under warranty with about 7 pounds of Freon. Daughter Hass to talk to the father and will call us back when they approve the work.
Seal holes in supply plenum. Upon arrival customer told me she is selling her home. The inspector went into the attic to look at the duct work. He found 2 holes in the duct board. I glued and taped the holes. After I did that I put mastic over the tape. The 2 holes are sealed now.
Condensing I VSC board failed. 244 V are being applied to the Voert but it’s not converting to DC voltage as the measurements taking read zero. Factory recommendation is to replace the board if such findings is determined.
Return to customers home to perform quite a work. Installed an electronic air cleaner, a new UV bulb and a hard start. After install all equipment I turned unit on and everything is working as it should.

Upon arrival to scheduled system maintenance I was shown to an A/H unit located in the attic. Immediately pulled off panel doors to inspect all electrical components connections, collect electrical readings off all components, and check the evap coil for cleanliness. Evaporation coil is clean and all electrical components connections are fully secure with readings all within range of factory specifications. This system is equipped with a Pure Air X UV, which is fully functional at this time. This system is also equipped with an elite UV system which is needing a bulb replacement. Homeowner agreed and is moving forward with quoted work at a later date. Collected a temperature, differential at the air handler between supply and return sides of the unit and had a 23° temperature differential in the cooling mode. Tested float, safety switch, and ensure proper functions. Changed two customer supplied return air filters. The homeowner was curious about the benefits of the Pure Air elect
Pumped all refrigerant down in the condensing unit and blocked off. Removed bad evaporator coil. Separated from primary pan and installed new evaporator coil with existing primary pan. Connected everything back together and placed system on a pressure test with nitrogen. No nitrogen leaked out, release nitrogen and then put system on vacuum for under 500 µm. Released refrigerant and turn system on. Check the pressures, temperature differential and system functionality. Also made adjustment to drain line. System is on and cooling properly at this time.
Upon arriving, indoor fan was running but out door fan or compressor was not running. I checked to verify that 24v was energizing the Contactor which it was. The capacitor was measuring far below the manufacturer range. I replaced with a turbo 200 cap and now the system is up and running.
Arrive to perform leak search. On arrival customer showed me to air handler system. Open cabinet and ran system. Immediately found a leak coming off a stem from the evaporator coil. Unit is over 10 years old. Is not under warranty. Informed customer this could be a pricey job. Due to the age of the system, it may be better to put that money towards a new unit. Will give customer pricing for a new coil, but ultimately suggesting he meet with a comfort adviser. Customer agreed to meet with a comfort advisor. They are meeting tomorrow between 5 and 6 PM. Again, urged customer to sign up with plan but customer is admittedly overwhelmed at this breakdown currently. Informed him whichever route He took this plan would be beneficial and would definitely save him money. Customer is again uninterested. Collected payment and signature for today’s work and left. Thank you for choosing Total air!
Called out today due to no cooling. Upon arrival system was tripped on the float switch causing the thermostat to go blank. I gave options for a chemical drain cleaning due to the visible algae build up. Evaporator coil is heavily impacted. After pulling the float switch I checked all electronics and motor components to ensure equipment is operating properly within manufacture specifications. Checked filter. Measured the temperature drop across the coil (which was 2.3 degrees…..) Went to the roof and checked refrigerant pressures. System was extremely low on R22 refrigerant. Compressor ratio was 6.1. I explained to the clients that to resolve this issue we would need to perform a leak search, find the leak, fix the leak and then refill the system of refrigerant. R22 has not been manufactured since January of 2020… we as a company do not carry it anymore. Bare minimum for the cost of this refrigerant leak repair would be around 2,000. Due to the age, condition and warranty status
Came out due to system struggling to keep cool. Customer has had 2 previous companies diagnose evaporator coil and add refrigerant. Also found oil in the primary pan of the evaporator coil and where the drain port shoots out. Need to replace warranty evaporator coil. Sent estimate for warranty evaporator coil and customer excepted. Did not have any refrigerant available to add to her system today. She paid for the diagnostic and we will return in the morning to add the refrigerant and collect for the refrigerant at that time.
Arrived at customers house for system. No cool. On arrival. Customer showed me to air handler system. Air handler fan was on. Went outside to condenser and condenser was on. Checked customers. Filters and filters should definitely be changed. Customer does not have any spare ones right now. Took out gauges and checked pressures and readings. Unit is showing signs of low Freon. Customer informed me he’s had a friend that does HVAC come out in the past and add Freon. Customer said the last time he had this done was approximately three months ago. Suspecting unit has a leak. Gave customer options for work to be performed. Customer is going out of town for about a month and for now with just like Freon added to the system. When customer returns, he would like to schedule a leak test. Added Freon to the system and the system is now cooling fine. Suggested customer sign up on plan but customer would like to consider between now and our next visit. Pressures and readings are now looking fine
Arrived at customers house for system inspection. On arrival customer showed me to air handler unit and closet. Open air handler unit and saw bio growth inside on wiring.

Called out today due to no cooling. Upon arrival system was running after the client flushed the drain line. There was still water present in the emergency float. Recommended a drain solve treatment. Checked all electronics and motor components to ensure equipment is operating properly within manufacture specifications. Found that the capacitor was extremely low and recommended replacing with a turbo cap. Checked refrigerant pressures. Performed a drain solve treatment and replaced capacitor. Vacuumed drain line clear from outside port. Used a total of 4 gallons of water until drain was clear. Measured the temperature drop across the coil. Equipment is operating at this time it due to the age and condition of the machine it can and will fail at anytime. Client enrolled in preventative maintenance agreement and applied member discount to todays repairs and trip. Thank you for always choosing Total Air! Become a member
Upon arriving indoor fan was running, but outdoor fan or compressor was not running. Customer has a pull out fused disconnect, in which fuse was blown. I also measured the capacitance of the capacitor and found that the herm side of the capacitor was reading 36 µF and it’s rated for 40 µF. At the customers request I replace the fuses in the disconnect as well as the capacitor with a turbo X. I offer the customer the opportunity to have regular scheduled maintenance performed on the unit by joining our maintenance program. The customer stated that the family may only be in the home for another two months and did not want to take advantage of it at this time
Customer was on the phone trying to get through to cancel call. He confirmed with Duke energy that he was only getting one leg of power to his home and it’s an electrical problem from Dukes end.
