Sooner or later, every homeowner in Chester, Colonial Heights, Glen Allen, Henrico, Mechanicsville, Midlothian, Moseley, Richmond, VA, and the surrounding areas suffers an AC breakdown. If your air conditioner is blowing warm air or if it won't run at all, Foster Plumbing & Heating will resolve your cooling troubles quickly and efficiently.
What to Expect During an AC Repair Visit
Breakdowns are inconvenient, but the good news is that most air conditioners are equipped with automatic safety features that prevent the system from running if a fault is detected. This technology protects your HVAC equipment from additional damage. Continuing to run a malfunctioning air conditioner can result in catastrophic failure, inflated repair costs, or the need for a replacement. If you suspect that there's a problem, have us inspect the system before the condition worsens.
Our professionals will work quickly to diagnose the problem. After we've pinpointed the issue, we'll explain your options. Once you've reviewed the estimate, your technician will proceed with the AC repairs. Our service vehicles are stocked with a wide selection of replacement parts so that we can complete the job without delay.
Preventing Common AC Problems
Delayed maintenance, clogged filters, and thermostat problems are the cause of most AC breakdowns. Deferred maintenance is the number one offender because it allows minor malfunctions to worsen until they impact your comfort. Airflow issues may lead to overheating and decreased output, and electrical faults can prevent the system from running or cause it to cycle on and off rapidly. Fortunately, these issues are preventable. To reduce the likelihood of future air conditioning repairs in Richmond, VA, start with these simple tasks.
- Clear plants and brush away from the outdoor unit.
- Clean the condenser coils to remove dust and pollen.
- Use recommended thermostat settings when heating and cooling.
- Replace thermostat batteries in the fall when you test your smoke detectors.
- Flush the condensate drain to prevent clogs and backups.
- Replace your return filters every 30 to 90 days.
