Air Conditioners commonly used within the home can be split into 4 main categories. These are Ducted Systems (Built into the ceiling), Wall and Floor Units, Static Ceiling Units and then all-in-one devices. The most popular A/C types are the wall and floor units, as they can be placed either high or low to suit requirements, with a condenser unit placed outside your property. Unfortunately, as popular as these are for efficiency and cost, they are also the most prone to faults.

Regardless of your set up, we are familiar with all brands, makes, models and type of AC, meaning we can quickly diagnose your fault(s) and provide the very best in certified Aircon Repair Cape Town directly to you.

My AC Unit is on, but its not blowing cold air?

This is one of the most common issues we frequently see with air conditioning units and is mainly due to a lack of adequate air flow and the refrigerant will need topping up. Providing there is no leaks in the piping, Re-gassing (as its commonly known) will usually fix this issue, but due to pressurised gas being needed, its a job for the trained pros only. While this is an easy fix, others may be harder to identify and will need further investigation from our specialists.

Depending on which type of Air Conditioner you are using, issues with the unit not starting are usually power related. If your AC doesn’t come on at all, check the circuit breakers to see if the power has tripped. Aircon units use a lot of power to start the condensers and if yours is tripping constantly, there is likely a problem with one or more of the internal electrical components and as a result, you will need to call a HVAC technician to determine whats causing the issue.

Other common issues affecting your AC ability to turn on and run correctly relate to the start capacitors in your AC unit. These are in place to give a big voltage boost to the unit in order to get it going. If the unit appears to be on but you cannot hear the condenser starting, this usually indicates a capacitor replacement is necessary. As a fairly easy and quick replacement, its still one that needs to be completed by a qualified expert. Call our technicians today

Again, this is not an unusual fault with modern Aircon systems. Through either poor or neglected maintenance or due to the physical age of the unit, AC can leak from time to time and its down to a number of different factors that will need to be inspected by a qualified HVAC repairman.

Clogged pipes or overflow drains can cause water to back up in the system, as can a damaged overflow pan but more commonly, the problem is caused by dirty filters which is down to negligent servicing. Through thoroughly cleaning and inspecting the unit, we can usually fix this type of issue easily, avoiding any serious costs. If the condenser coil or pump is causing the issue however, this will warrant further investigation and the costs incurred will be dependent on how bad the damage is. In any case, the repair costs associated with fixing broken aircon is almost always significantly less than the cost of replacing the unit entirely.

Unlike the more common AC issues we see, a Frozen Coil fault is one that can be caused by almost any failure in any part of the system. The first symptom you will notice if the Condenser Coils are Frozen is heat and there a few things to check to see where the problem is originating from. Firstly check that the air is flowing through the supply registers. If the air has stopped altogether or if its warm, this is usually an indication of frozen coils.

Secondly, since a frozen coil leads to a build up of moisture in the system you may notice excessive condensation or water leaking from the main unit which is a strong indicator you need to call a specialist. Dirty filters, broken fans impeding air flow, blocked condensate lines, malfunctioning thermostat and refrigerant leaks are also prime problem areas causing coil malfunction. Our experts are fully trained in all Aircon Repair Cape Town and will help to quickly diagnose your issue and offer a timely and professional solution. 

Any unusual noise that’s coming from your Air Conditioning system should not be ignored. This is the unit telling you something isn’t quite right, and you should refrain from using your AC until its been inspected and repaired by a qualified HVAC technician. You will usually notice noise coming from the Fan itself, either constantly or just when the unit is cycling. Either way, its probably down to a loose, worn or dirty internal part and if left unattended, could cause more serious and expensive issues.

Regularly servicing your AC units is a must to avoid large repair bills. However, if you have failed to keep up your service schedule, the noise issue may be a result of poor lubrication on the motor and will need a good service. Other causes may simply be a dirty coil fin, loose screws or worn dampers. In most cases, we can easily fix noisy Aircon and a quick call to our team will have you sorted in time.
