Replacement parts: Some repairs will require new parts. We guarantee to find you the best quality for the lowest price, but if multiple parts are needed, your repair price will go up. Our technicians will always communicate parts pricing before starting a repair so you can decide whether or not to proceed.
AC system access: A significant portion of the repair cost is determined by the time it takes to complete. While we do our best to repair units in a timely manner, if your unit is difficult to access, it could increase your repair time and cost. Our technicians will always communicate any perceived access difficulties ahead of time.
Warranty status: We will always work with you to determine which parts and services on your AC unit are covered by your warranty. If a repair is not covered by your warranty or your warranty has expired, we will make sure you know of every additional cost you may incur before we start working on your unit.
AC Unit Size: Remember that larger units will cost more to repair because replacement parts are bigger and more costly.
Brand name parts vs. generic: Both brand name parts and generic parts are top quality and will get your repair done right. When possible, we use generic parts to help you get the best value on your AC repair. But it’s important to check that your warranty won’t be voided if you use generic parts versus brand-name parts.
Common AC Repairs & Issues
In the unrelenting Arizona heat, it can feel like a crisis when your unit stops working properly. Luckily, you can rely on Falcon Air Conditioning technicians for every AC repair need that you might face. Here are some of the most common AC problems our technicians help with every day.
You Don’t Have Cold Air
We’re stating the obvious here, but if your AC isn’t blowing cold air, you’ve got a problem. The air blowing for your unit should feel significantly cooler than the standing room temperature.
Luckily, this is usually a pretty simple fix! One of these four issues could be causing the trouble:
- You don’t have enough refrigerant fluid in the unit
- Your thermostat is out of calibration
- Your AC filters are clogged and need replacing
- There is a problem with the AC belts.
If you notice no cool air flowing from your AC unit, call one of our technicians to get a diagnosis.
The AC Unit is Leaking Water
If your unit is leaking water, it’s likely a simple fix, but not one that you should put off for long. Leaking water could lead to bigger problems down the road. Here are some possible reasons your unit may leak water:
- The AC drain line is loose or has come apart
- Low refrigerant levels cause freezing and thawing cycles
- The ductwork is improperly sealed
- The condenser unit is not working properly
Once you see excess water around your unit, it’s best to call one of our technicians so they can check refrigerant levels and run other diagnostics to determine the cause of the leak and get it repaired before it causes additional problems.
Unusual Loud Noises
Most newer AC units in the Arizona area are quiet when they run properly. If your unit starts making strange and loud noises, it’s a sign of a major problem, and you should turn off your unit and call a technician right away. Something may be loose or broken within the internal system that could cause other damage if your AC continues to run.
Falcon Air is great at getting to your home quickly to address noise issues and attempt a repair before any damage is significant enough to require AC replacement.
Your AC is Blowing Warm Air
Arizona is warm enough on its own—you don’t need any unnecessary hot air blowing around. To determine the cause, first check for these issues:
- A dirty air filter
- A thermostat on the wrong setting
- A dirty outdoor condenser
If none of those issues fix the problem, it’s best to call one of our expert technicians who can look inside your unit to find the source of the problem.
The Thermostat is Malfunctioning
Your thermostat is the brain of your AC unit, and if it’s not working correctly, it could cause a host of problems. Here are some signs of a malfunctioning thermostat:
- AC won’t turn on
- AC runs constantly
- AC doesn’t reach the set temperature before turning off
- Your room seems warmer than your thermostat setting
Before calling a technician, try some simple troubleshooting. First, ensure your AC unit is turned on, set to the right setting, turned on auto, and no batteries are dead. If that doesn’t fix the problem, it’s time to call our technicians who can look into deeper problems like faulty wiring or debris issues.
Your AC Fan Won’t Rotate
It will be impossible for your AC unit to cool your home if the fan can’t rotate and cycle the air throughout each room! This is a problem that you’ll want to fix immediately. Problems with your fan can be caused by:
- A worn-out fan that needs replacing
- Extra moisture around the fan that isn’t draining
- Broken mechanics
To determine the exact cause of a fan rotation problem, it’s best to hire one of our expert technicians to come and inspect your fan and run diagnostics.
Electric Bills Skyrocket
There should be little variation in your utility bills from month to month if your AC unit is working properly. If you suddenly see a spike in your utility costs without a change in use, it’s likely you need a repair. Here are some of the common causes:
- A faulty thermostat switch
- Improperly installed or leaky ductwork
- Your unit is near the end of its lifespan
Since an increase in utility bills doesn’t usually have an obvious cause, our technicians can run in-depth diagnostics and help you determine if a repair is possible or if replacement is the better option.
You may be able to avoid a variety of costly repairs with simple AC maintenance practices! Here are just a few ideas to get you started.
- Regularly remove debris that may collect on the outside of your unit or that gets stuck in your fan.
- Periodically clean the fins on the outside of your unit to prevent extra dust and grime from accumulating inside your unit.
- Keep the area around your unit free from clutter, including gardening tools, sports equipment, fallen leaves, or trash.
- Change the air filter twice a year to keep gunk in the air from getting into your home or clogging up your unit.
What is the most common AC repair?
One of the most common AC repair issues is that the air filter needs to be replaced, which you can usually fix by yourself. Thermostat repair and refrigerant leaks are similarly common and will likely require hiring a certified AC repair technician to fix.
How do I know if my air conditioner needs to be replaced?
The first factor in air conditioner replacements is the age of your unit. If your AC unit is 10 years old or older, it’s likely reaching the end of its life cycle in the Arizona heat. We recommend having one of our technicians inspect your unit to identify how well it’s working, determine if expensive repairs are in your future, or give you a quote on a replacement. Other factors that may indicate a replacement is needed are spikes in utility bills, loud or unusual noises, strange smells, and more. Learn more about our AC replacement services.
Can a dirty filter cause AC not to cool?
Yes. Extremely dirty air filters reduce the airflow from your AC unit, significantly hampering its ability to keep your home cool. Dirty filters also mean that more allergens, dirt, and dust are circulating through your unit and into your home, contributing to lower air quality and possibly clogging up AC machinery.
