AC Services in San Ramon

The Bay Area often melts its residents like an ice cream cone during the sweltering summers, but professional AC services in San Ramon and other nearby service areas can help you stay cool in any temperature. Take advantage of Trio Heating and Air Conditioning’s skilled and experienced team of air conditioning contractors, and enjoy a comfortably chilled home all summer long.

How Often Does My Air Conditioning System Need Servicing?

Most residential air conditioning systems require professional maintenance at least once per year. We recommend scheduling your AC service in the spring and ahead of the scorching temperatures of San Ramon’s summer.

Your technician can thoroughly inspect your system, recommend additional services, and anticipate repairs to avoid breakdowns and major repair costs when you’d rather be enjoying the beach. An additional AC tune-up in the fall can also identify any repair needs after a summer of heavy usage.

Besides avoiding breakdowns, regular service offers several benefits:

  • Performance: Regular maintenance ensures your unit is running smoothly, maximizing its ability evenly to cool every corner of your home.
  • Efficiency: Keeping each AC component in good shape helps avoid unnecessary strain and energy demand.
  • Longevity: Maintenance can extend your AC system’s lifespan as it prevents undue wear on its parts.
  • Savings: Less wear, improved durability, and energy efficiency can translate to less frequent repair costs and lower utility bills.

What Are the Signs That My Air Conditioning Needs Repair?

Watch for the following early warning signs to address AC issues before they escalate.

Blowing warm air

Blowing warm air or not blowing air at all is a clear sign that your AC needs attention. Check your thermostat for charged batteries and proper settings — during the cooling season, ensure it’s set to cooling mode. If adjusting your thermostat doesn’t resolve the issue, call an HVAC technician to look for underlying issues such as compressor problems, refrigerant leaks, a broken blower fan motor, or blocked ductwork.

Short cycling

Regardless of how hot San Ramon might get, your AC should maintain consistent cooling cycles that last 15 to 20 minutes. Frequent or short cycling can indicate a variety of hidden problems, such as low refrigerant, clogged air filters, or frozen evaporator coils.

High energy bills

Energy bills usually increase in the summer when you’re using your AC system more frequently, but abnormal spikes or consistently high bills can suggest that your AC isn’t running as efficiently as it should. High energy consumption may coincide with signs such as warm airflow and strange noises, but it can also suggest obscured problems that require professional HVAC attention.

Strange noises

Many AC systems produce a non-intrusive humming sound during cooling cycles, but they shouldn’t make disruptive or loud noises. Persistent or overly loud screeching, rattling, grinding, whistling, and other sounds may indicate mechanical problems that require prompt attention.

Unpleasant odors

Damaged ductwork, clogged air filters, leaking or backup drain lines, and other problems can result in excessive moisture buildup. These high-humidity areas are ideal environments for mold and mildew to grow, which spread spores and unpleasant odors throughout your home.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I tell if my AC’s evaporator coils are dirty?

Found near the air handler, evaporator coils can hurt your system’s efficiency and performance when they’re dirty. Besides gunk and dust on the coils, signs such as high bills, poor cooling, and frost buildup can suggest dirty evaporator coils.

Can I service my AC system myself?

While we recommend replacing air filters, brushing debris off your outdoor AC unit, and other straightforward tasks throughout the year, homeowners should pair these visits with routine maintenance from a professional. AC units are complex and may cause additional repair costs if you take them on without professional experience. A licensed technician can quickly service or repair your unit.

What temperature should I set my AC to?

According to the Department of Energy, homeowners should set their AC systems between 68 and 70 degrees.
