Topeka AC Repair & Maintenance

Delivering Top-Notch Air Conditioning Service in Topeka, KS

If you were to look at random reviews online about different AC companies, you’d probably see a number of horror stories. Instances where the contractor charged the homeowner money and never returned; refusing to repair a unit after improperly installing components; or simply never answering the phone or consistently running late.

Not all Topeka AC repair companies behave or perform like these examples. At Pat Plumbing, Heating and Air, we show integrity and honesty by using upfront, flat-rate pricing, assuring 100% satisfaction, answering the phone around the clock, and arriving on time.

Whether you need air conditioning repair or maintenance, we can help. Contact us at 785-783-5780 to set up an appointment. You may also check out our coupons here!

What are the Signs You Need AC Repair?

There are several signs that indicate you might need air conditioning repair:

  • Weak Airflow: If you notice weak airflow coming out of your vents, it could be a sign of a problem with the compressor or ductwork.
  • Warm Air: If your AC is blowing warm or hot air instead of cold air, it could indicate issues with the compressor, refrigerant levels, or a malfunctioning thermostat.
  • Strange Noises: Unusual sounds such as grinding, squealing, or banging noises coming from your AC unit could indicate various mechanical problems that require repair.
  • Foul Odors: Foul or musty odors when your AC is running might indicate mold or mildew growth inside the unit or ductwork, or a burned-out wire.
  • Leaking or Moisture Buildup: If you notice water pooling around your AC unit or moisture buildup on walls or ceilings near vents, it could indicate a clogged drain tube or a refrigerant leak.
  • Frequent Cycling On and Off: If your AC unit is constantly turning on and off (short cycling), it could be a sign of an electrical issue, a malfunctioning thermostat, or improper refrigerant levels.
  • Increased Energy Bills: A sudden increase in your energy bills without any changes in usage habits could indicate that your AC unit is not functioning efficiently, possibly due to a mechanical issue or poor maintenance.
  • Ice Buildup: Ice formation on the evaporator coils or refrigerant lines can indicate restricted airflow or low refrigerant levels, both of which require professional attention.
  • Age of the System: If your AC unit is older and hasn't been serviced regularly, it may be more prone to breakdowns and require repair or replacement.

If you notice any of these signs, it's advisable to contact a qualified HVAC technician to diagnose and repair the issue promptly. Ignoring these signs could lead to further damage and more expensive repairs down the line.

Common Air Conditioning Repairs in Topeka, KS

Sometimes air conditioning units need a bit of TLC (tender loving care) to keep running. Usually, it isn’t anything major, but if our upfront, flat-rate pricing seems expensive, talk to your technician about whether it is better to repair or replace your AC unit.

When it comes to Topeka AC repairs, here are the most common:

  • Refrigerant leak detection, repair, and/or recharge
  • Circuit breakers, circuit boards, fuses, or relay replacement
  • Thermostat replacement
  • Drain line cleaning (don’t let them get too dirty, leaking water could cause damage!)
  • Condenser and evaporator coil cleaning and repair

All of these items are typically checked during your annual inspection, but that doesn’t mean they are guaranteed to not happen.

AC Repair FAQ:

How do I know if my AC unit needs repair or replacement?

Determining whether your AC unit needs repair or replacement depends on factors such as the extent of the problem, the age of the unit, and the cost of repairs compared to the cost of a new unit. 

Generally, minor issues like refrigerant leaks or worn-out parts can be repaired, while more significant problems such as compressor failure or extensive coil damage may warrant replacement, especially if the unit is older or nearing the end of its lifespan. 

Consulting with a qualified HVAC technician can help you assess the best course of action based on your specific circumstances.

How long does AC repair usually take?

The duration of AC repair can vary depending on the nature and extent of the problem. Minor repairs may be completed in a few hours, while more complex issues could take longer, especially if replacement parts are needed.

Can I repair my AC unit myself?

While some minor maintenance tasks such as cleaning or replacing air filters can be done by homeowners, most AC repairs require specialized knowledge and tools. Attempting DIY repairs without proper training could lead to further damage or injury. It's best to leave complex repairs to qualified HVAC technicians.
