Expert Troubleshooting & Repair Services

Any malfunction in an air conditioner can affect the performance of the entire system. Even a minor problem can make the house too warm or humid and cause your monthly utility costs to increase. 

Signs That Your AC Needs Repair:

  • Running constantly
  • Cycling too frequently
  • AC unit blowing hot air
  • Emitting an unpleasant odor
  • Making strange noises
  • Causing rises in your utility costs

Can a Dirty Air Filter Cause AC Not to Cool?

Yes, a clogged air filter can impact your air conditioner’s cooling capabilities, as the buildup of dirt, dust, and other debris impede airflow, thus impacting heat’s ability to be removed from the home. A dirty filter can also affect other components of your air conditioning system.

How Can a Dirty Air Filter Affect My Air Conditioning?

If you find that your filter is not clogged, yet your air conditioner is still not running at optimal performance, it’s best you give the Modesto AC repair pros at JB Air a call today. 

Why Does My AC Smell?

When your air conditioner begins emitting an odd odor, it’s often an indication of a problem with your system. However, the specific cause of the smell will vary based on the issue. That's why it's best to contact an air conditioning service expert from our team as soon as possible.

Types of AC Smells & What They Mean:

  • If your air conditioner smells like vinegar – the most likely culprit is a build-up of a specific type of mold or bacteria within the system. This may be due to excess condensation, a damaged filter, or that the system isn’t removing water correctly or quick enough. A vinegar odor could also point to the AC’s electric motor releasing ozone which can have a sour scent.
  • If your air conditioner smells like rotten eggs – you may be dealing with a potential gas leak. In such cases, it’s imperative you exit the premises and call emergency services.
  • If your air conditioner smells like dirty socks – the evaporator coil may have started to grow bacteria within it, indicating that the coil needs to be cleaned.
  • If your air conditioner smells like chemicals or exhaust – your system, or it’s condenser, may be leaking fluid, such as refrigerant. If you notice this odor, you’ll need to call in our team of experienced AC repair pros.

Common AC Problems

You need a proper diagnosis for accurate AC repair. Identifying the cause of air conditioning problems is not easy without the right training and expertise. For example, different problems may cause similar symptoms. Let an experienced Modesto air conditioning repair technician troubleshoot your problem and perform quality AC repair services for lasting results. 

Air Conditioning Problems Are Frequently Caused By: 

  • Refrigerant leaks: Refrigerant leaks are fairly common but not always easy to detect. You may have a refrigerant leak if the house is humid or just isn’t getting cool, there is ice on the evaporator coils, or your utility bills are higher than normal. 
  • Compressor failure: The AC compressor may be failing when you have weak air flow, warm air coming from the vents, strange noises, or a compressor that won’t turn on. 
  • Fan failure: You may have a bad fan motor if the outside fan blades are turning slowly or not turning at all, you notice a burning smell, or you hear rattling or buzzing noises. 
  • Clogged condensate drain: If the condensate drain line becomes clogged, you may notice water near the indoor unit, the house not getting cool, or the system not starting. 
  • Mold and bacteria: When the condensate drain isn’t functioning properly, mold, mildew, and bacteria can grow inside the pipe and around the pump. This can cause a musty odor and trigger asthma or allergy symptoms. 
  • Thermostat malfunctions: In some cases, the cause of an air conditioning problem is not actually the air conditioner. If the unit seems to be running but the temperature doesn’t match the setting, the thermostat may need to be replaced.
