20 year old air conditioner being repaired in Pleasanton, CA
Jay has been taking care of our furnace and air conditioner for decades now (really, I found my old review on another site from 2009). He’s terrific – always goes above and beyond the call of duty and is very reasonable. He even drives down to south San Jose! He’s helped us with A/C, heating system replacements, water heater replacement, floor heater thermostats and regular tune-ups. Always incredibly professional and helpful.

Signs That You Need Air Conditioner Repairs

Before deciding to call a professional repair service to come assist you in checking on your air conditioner, there are a few things you can try checking by yourself. You may find that the solution is quite easy. Check if the thermostat is set to cool. Try confirming if your desired temperature is actually less than the temperature in your home or room.

  1. If you find that everything in this section works correctly, try looking for a tripped breaker at the electrical panel. If everything checks out, then it is time to call for your AC repair specialist.
  2. If the unit keeps running but there is no or very little air coming out of the air conditioner’s vents: if you find out that your thermostat is set correctly but there is still too much warmth in the house, then you need a climate control specialist from Bradford Air & Heating Company.
  3. You keep hearing strange sounds: if you have used the machine for quite some time, you are familiar with its sound when it is working normally. In fact, the sounds it makes forms part of your daily life music since it’s usually very steady. But if you keep getting stranger sounds that you’ve never heard before, there might be something wrong with your ac unit.
  4. When the air conditioner starts emitting a bad odor: most times, bad smells coming from the air conditioner are a sign of dirt, mildew or mold which I must admit are quite a nuisance to anyone. The bad smell may fill up your entire home if you are not cautious about it. This is usually an indicator of something wrong in your air conditioning system. It is high time for you to contact the Bradford Air & Heating Company for AC repairs.
  5. If your machine has short cycles: it is perfectly normal for your air conditioning to go on and off just to be able to maintain a steady temperature in your home. When the temperature goes beyond the stated limit, it may go off to maintain it and on whenever there is a huge variation from the set temperature. This shouldn’t worry you at all. However, these cycles are not meant to be short. That is why, if you notice your air conditioner keeps going on and off more than usual, there might be a problem in the cycling system of your machine. The short cycles in your machine will end up putting a lot of stress to its system which may lead to the eventual breakdown of the entire unit. This is a very good reason to call Bradford Air & Heating Company to come and check your climate control machine.
  6. Water leaks around your Air conditioner: most times, you may find a small condensation around your machine. This is quite normal and there is no need to get alarmed. On the other hand, excessive water condensation around the unit can be problematic. As we all know, water can result in damage to electrical appliances if not carefully handled. Therefore, if you notice excessive water, you will need to contact Bradford Air & Heating Company for HVAC repairs.
  7. When the air conditioner is frosty or icy: too much frost or ice is also a problem as much as excessive condensation of water is. Most of the times, frost or ice is as a result of blockage of air flow which will, in turn, cause your air conditioner to freeze up.

If you detect any of the above problems in your air conditioner, you can contact a specialist to help you out. Obviously, the only reason you have an air conditioner is for complete comfort. If by any chance you get uncomfortable because of malfunctions in your unit, you can always call Bradford Air & Heating Company for prompt and quality services.
