Can a leaking AC coil be repaired?
Yes, we can take a look and see if the coil needs to be replaced or just repaired. If it is only leaking from an area where you have seen water before, this could mean that there are some leaves or debris blocking one of your coils. We will inspect for any obstructions so that you know what action should be taken.
Can an AC leak be fixed?
Yes, we can help fix the leak so your AC is working like new again. Our experts will take a look and see what part of the system has been damaged or worn down.
Can an AC unit last 30 years?
There is no specific life expectancy for an AC unit because that depends on how many hours a day it runs, the quality of installation and maintenance. The average lifespan of an AC unit ranges from about 15 to 20 years under normal circumstances.
Can I just replace outside AC unit?
You can replace your outside AC unit, but you may have a better chance of resolving the issue if you call in an AC repair professional.
Does homeowners insurance cover AC unit?
It depends on the property owner’s policy. Some homeowners’ insurance companies do cover the cost of AC repairs, but not all policies will offer this type of coverage.
How do I know if my AC evaporator is bad?
You can check the refrigerant level. If it is low, then this could be a sign that your AC evaporator needs to be replaced or repaired.
How do I stop my AC coil from leaking?
This may be due to a dirty condenser coil. The best way is to clean it with water or window cleaner.
If the issue persists, you should have your AC inspected by a professional before continuing use of the unit.
How do you know if your AC is low on Freon?
If the AC is blowing warm air or it takes longer to cool your home, there may be a Freon leak.
To check the Freon level, you can buy a refrigerant leak detector at one of our Orlando AC repair shops.
How long do AC coils last?
Typically, AC coils last for about two to seven years.
When an ac coil starts leaking refrigerant or experiencing other problems, it usually means that the coil needs to be replaced.
How long do AC compressors last?
– AC compressors can last for up to 15 years.
– If you notice that your ac is blowing hotter air or leaking refrigerant, it may be time to replace the compressor.
How long do central AC units last?
Manufacturing quality has improved tremendously over the years, but really, it depends on you. When your Central AC unit breaks down, it needs to be repaired or replaced sooner rather than later. Soon after a Central AC repairs reaches 3-5 years old, you’ll see signs of wear and tear: efficiency will decline while refrigerant leaks increase. HVAC experts at Orlando AC Repair advise that homeowners consider replacing their units after 10-12 years of service (or around 50% longer than a typical warranty). What’s more? The aggressive energy efficiency standards in Texas will soon include evaluating a consumer’s cooling billing history — so you can rest assured your AC is in good hands with us!
No matter the age of your HVAC system
How much does AC cost per month?
This varies on a number of factors, including the type of AC system installed and whether or not that particular system has been maintained. A poorly maintained air conditioning unit can cost you up to 50% more per year in energy usage. The average homeowner pays around $120-250 every year for their air conditioning costs and should periodically contact Orlando AC Repair for a quality inspection to see what kind of maintenance is needed for your specific equipment.
How much does an AC unit cost for a 2000 sq ft home?
AC units can vary in cost depending on the size and scope of the cooling needs. Generally, a 2-ton unit which is more appropriate for a 2500 square foot home (larger than 2000) will cost around $1500-$3000 depending on where you live and if you’re hiring an HVAC contractor or not. Other factors that affect price are the efficiency rating, brand, materials used in construction, and type (cooling only or heat pump/heat pump). For a home with average cooling needs of about 50% capacity to an 85 degree summer day could run as low as $3200 or up to $14000 for installation alone.

Is it cheaper to replace furnace and AC together?
Yes, it will most likely be cheaper to replace both an AC unit and furnace as a set together rather than individually. Generally speaking, the cost of installation is often lower when done together rather than separately. If you have a system with electric heat that also needs the air conditioning to work properly, it’s often necessary to replace both systems at the same time.
It typically costs more up front because it can take more time, however for those who want their installs done quickly and simply once, going with this option can greatly reduce the number of times home owners must worry about repairs in the future.
If homeowners opt for separate steps instead of just one big install – what they might lose by way of simplicity is made up by
Should I repair or replace my air conditioner?
If your air conditioner is leaking, schedules high power usage, has no heat or little cooling power, or does not turn on, you should replace it.
If the above sounds like your AC then give us a call and we’ll send over an expert to provide you with free AC repair information and respond to any questions you have about air conditioning repair costs in Orlando Florida. Replacing an air conditioners can seem daunting at face value but when you take the time to contact Orlando AC Repair it becomes much easier and we are always more than happy to answer any questions in order for our customers to feel comfortable with their decision.
Should I replace AC coil or whole unit?
A one-time expenditure of $1200 for a new AC system is preferable to spending twice that amount in parts and repair. It should be an easy decision if the cost is the same for both, but keep in mind some home owners have more ways to save on service or financing than others. In such cases, it may make sense for them to go with a replacement solution rather than repairing the unit yet again.
The cost of energy may also allow you to choose between whole replacement versus repair. For example, if you’re paying 11 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh), repairs won’t really break even without savings from avoiding fridge defrosting costs and using less electricity while at home during cold weather months where need for AC is high.
For some residents of Orlando, the ac repair costs may be subsidized by utility companies. If you are in a public housing or near an industrial zone, your electric company might pay for repairs and even give incentives to home owners that have their cooling systems serviced annually with new filters as well as cleaned coils (as needed).
Should I replace my 20 year old air conditioner?
Of course not. AC repair is about half the cost of installation and replacement, which is expensive, labor intensive work.
Most homes in Central Florida will need an air conditioning system that will last 15-20 years and can be repaired only as needed rather than replaced because many manufacturers create cooling units with very long lifespans. You want something that’s efficient, durable, sturdy enough for the job but also quiet and easy to operate – so you have to do some research before you make a purchase decision!
Should I turn off my AC if its leaking?
Most likely yes, it would be best to turn off the AC. If there is a concern about money, it’s worth noting that Orlando AC Repair Services are available for when the temperature fluctuates and your AC isn’t functioning properly.
But before turning off your air conditioner entirely you should make sure that there is no water flowing out of your unit. Open up the front and feel around on top of the coils- if there is water droplets rushing out then shut off the power to machine now! With electricity running this could lead to burn or other major trauma if any person or animal are in contact with it! You can try calling an A/C company for emergency service while waiting on help but safety precautions need to be taken during this process.
What does a new AC cost?
You can’t really answer this question without knowing a few more specifics. In general, the cost is simplistically proportional to 3 things – efficiency of the system, size of the ductwork needed for your room (which in turn affects air delivery rate) and amount of insulation you need.
You also mentioned that “you’ll be needing an AC unit soon.” We can give you some quick pricing estimates for typical units here in Orlando Florida – $1,750-$3,250 installed or $900-$2,500 if you’re going with a portable unit. Obviously these prices are indicative and there’s always wiggle room for negotiation depending on what kind of package/deal you want… they may even be able to get someone out to your place the same day!
Oh, and if you think that’s expensive then just wait until we start talking about ductwork. It’ll cost a good $500-700 per room to get properly insulated or dusted (depending on what system they use). If this is something you’re not up for then it might make sense to rent a portable unit for a few months until you can afford to get that work done… or better yet, start saving up now so next summer doesn’t end with your wallet on the short end of the stick!
What is the average cost to replace a 3 ton AC unit?

What is the most reliable air conditioner brand?
The most dependable brands, on the whole, for both new and older models are Amana, LG, Frigidaire
Different people have different needs from an air conditioner be it a small apartment or large house with many stories. When you’re shopping for an AC to buy for your home or office it’s important to know what brand of ACs have the highest customer satisfaction. Anecdotal evidence suggests that Amana, GE (General Electric), and LG “have high customer satisfaction rates”. For brand new AC units (or units that are less than two years old) “there is not a great deal of anecdotal evidence to make any definite claims about how one brand stacks up against another.” Our Orlando repair technicians can help you decide the best AC unit for your needs.
