Some Common air conditioning problems we can fix are:

  • Refrigerant Leaks: A refrigerant is a crucial component that helps cool the air. Leaks can occur over time, leading to decreased cooling efficiency and potential damage to the compressor. Our technicians can locate and repair these leaks.
  • Frozen Evaporator Coil: If the airflow is restricted or the refrigerant levels are low, the evaporator coil can freeze, hindering the cooling process. This can be fixed by identifying the underlying cause and resolving it.
  • Clogged Air Filters: Dirty air filters restrict airflow and reduce the system's efficiency. Regularly replacing or cleaning the air filters can help maintain proper airflow and prevent strain on the system.
  • Malfunctioning Thermostat: A faulty thermostat can lead to temperature inconsistencies or cause the AC not to turn on or off at the right times. Repairs may involve recalibration or replacement.
  • Condenser Issues: The condenser unit, located outside, can face problems like clogging, dirt build up, or mechanical issues. Regular maintenance and cleaning can help prevent these issues.
  • Electrical Problems: Faulty wiring, loose connections, or damaged capacitors can cause the air-conditioner to stop functioning or lead to potential hazards. Professional repair is essential for electrical issues.
  • Drainage Problems: The AC unit has a condensate drain that removes excess moisture. If this drain becomes clogged, it can lead to water leakage or increased humidity levels. Clearing the drain can fix the problem.
  • Compressor Failure: The compressor is a vital component responsible for circulating the refrigerant. Compressor issues may require expert diagnosis and repair or even replacement.
  • Fan Problems: The indoor blower fan or the outdoor fan can encounter problems, resulting in inadequate airflow or inefficient cooling. Repairing or replacing faulty fans may be necessary.
  • Strange Noises: Unusual sounds like rattling, buzzing, or squealing can indicate various issues within the AC system, such as loose parts or motor problems. Identifying and addressing these noises is essential.

Dishank and Rob were fantastic in diagnosing my old split system issues and arranging a replacement really fast. Great service from a knowledgeable and professional team. They were friendly, explained what they were doing, got me a great new unit and cleaned up well. Highly recommended. Thanks!

FABULOUS! I don’t know how I lived without my new ducted system. Easy to use. Quiet. Effective. Surprisingly energy efficient! Dishank and his team went above and beyond at every step. They were punctual, thorough and made sure everything they did was of a high standard and they even took the time to correct the issues left by the old system and installer that I wouldn’t have known about. Dishank took the time to find solutions to my very narrow roof space where others told me to simply install split systems everywhere. I’m so happy and highly recommend them to...

Dishank is local to me and offered a competitive quotation. They replaced an AC with a newly supplied multi-head split system. The job was done quickly and with care. The old system was laid on a concrete slab. Dishank’s recommended not doing the same, fixing it above the ground at no additional cost. No qualms recommending - they take pride in their work.

I asked Dishank to help with 3 old air conditioners that weren’t running properly at my house. Rob was excellent. Knew his stuff and was happy to help with any questions. 1 unit needed to be replaced, and 2 jets cleaned (due to black mold). Dishank came out on time and worked hard the whole day to get the new unit installed and the other aircons cleaned. He really took pride in his work (which was to an excellent standard) and was a joy to have in the house. At no point did I feel like he was selling me...

Very happy with the service and the very good price. Dishank from DP electrical arrived at my home within the hour of me calling DP electrical. He then methodically diagnosed the problem, and after sourcing and replacing the necessary parts, the unit was fully operational again. Thanks Dishank for the quick response and sorting it all out !

Dishank was absolutely wonderful. He came over on the same day and got my air conditioner working. He was really patient and explained many options of still using the old system that I have and options about getting new units installed. I really respected his honesty, he wasn't trying to upsell anything to me, just informing me of my options and what he thought was best in my current situation. I'd recommend his service, giving it an A+++++.

We were really impressed with Dishank's expertise, workmanship and work ethic. The job was challenging, but he quietly and competently got it done - and left the place spotless. His communication, advice and service was also excellent. It was a pleasure to have him on site. I haven't met too many tradies I can recommend but Dishank is one of them.

FAQs on Air-conditioner repairs

There could be several reasons for this issue. Check if the thermostat is set correctly, the power source is working, and the circuit breaker hasn’t tripped. If the problem persists, it might be a fault with the capacitor, motor, or compressor, and you should call a professional technician from DP Electrical Repair to diagnose and fix the problem.

There are multiple potential causes for this problem. The most common ones include a refrigerant leak, a faulty compressor, or a dirty air filter. It’s best to call out trained technician inspect your system to identify and resolve the specific issue.

It’s generally recommended to replace the air filter every 1 to 3 months, depending on factors such as the type of filter, the level of usage, and the presence of pets or allergies. Regularly changing the filter improves the efficiency and lifespan of your air conditioner.

Unusual noises could indicate various issues, such as loose components, fan problems, debris in the unit, or motor malfunctions. If you hear strange sounds coming from your AC, it’s essential to have a professional technician from DP Electrical Repair to inspect and diagnose the problem.

A frozen AC unit is often caused by restricted airflow, low refrigerant levels, or a malfunctioning blower motor. It’s crucial to address this problem promptly to prevent further damage to the system.

While you can handle basic maintenance tasks like changing the air filter, most air conditioning repairs require professional expertise. Attempting DIY repairs without proper knowledge can lead to more significant issues and might void your warranty. It’s safer and more effective to hire a licensed HVAC technician for complex repairs.

It’s recommended to schedule annual maintenance for your AC system. Regular servicing helps identify potential problems early, improves efficiency, and extends the life of your unit.

To enhance efficiency, keep the air filters clean, ensure proper insulation in your home, seal any air leaks, and consider installing a programmable thermostat to regulate temperature better.

The time it takes to fix an air conditioner unit varies depending on the specific issue. Simple repairs such as replacing a capacitor or cleaning the coils might take a couple of hours. However, more complex issues like compressor replacement or refrigerant leaks may take longer, possibly a day or more.

Several reasons could cause your AC to run without cooling properly. Common issues include low refrigerant levels, dirty air filters, a malfunctioning thermostat, or a faulty compressor. It’s best to have a professional technician diagnose the problem and provide appropriate solutions.

Whether repairing an AC unit is worth it depends on factors such as the age of the unit, the extent of the damage, and the cost of repairs versus the cost of replacement. In many cases, if the repairs are minor and the unit is relatively new, repairing it can be a cost-effective solution compared to replacing the entire system.

If your AC is not working, check the thermostat settings to ensure they are correct. Next, check the air filter to see if it’s dirty and needs replacement. Also, check the circuit breaker to make sure the AC unit is receiving power. If these checks don’t solve the problem, it’s best to call a professional technician for further diagnosis.

Signs of a bad AC compressor include loud or unusual noises coming from the unit, warm air blowing from the vents, and visible leaks around the compressor.

Signs that your air conditioner needs repair include reduced cooling/heating efficiency, strange noises, foul odors, frequent cycling on and off, and visible leaks or moisture around the unit. If you notice any of these signs, it’s essential to have your AC inspected and repaired by a professional technician.
