Air Conditioning Repair

Top AC Repair in Houma & Thibodaux

It’s 98 degrees and sweltering. You’ve turned your air conditioning up but cool air doesn’t seem to be coming out of the vents. What could be wrong?

Often when your AC is running but not cooling there can be a very simple cause. If you can hear the unit running but you’re not feeling any cooling comfort in the house you should:

CALL 985-746-1116

  • Check the thermostat. Sometimes your thermostat may not be on the correct setting or may have been turned off by mistake.
  • Check the air filter. When your air filter is too dirty, your system can run and generate cool air that never makes it to your vents because of blockages. If your filter is dirty, replacing it could solve any air flow issues.
  • Check the outside of your air conditioner. Sometimes debris or dirt can prevent your condenser from releasing heat. Clean off anything you may see covering the condenser to see if that improves your air flow.
  • Check your breaker box. Look to see if a circuit has been tripped to your outside unit. This means that the outside unit will stop producing cool air but your indoor unit will continue to blow. Reset any tripped breakers.

If you check these areas and nothing looks amiss, you could have a more serious problem with your AC unit that requires a professional technician to diagnose and repair the issue.

Can an air conditioning system leak be fixed near Thibodaux and Houma?

Yes, air conditioner leaks can be fixed. The first question is, what type of leak is it, a refrigerant leak or a water leak. A typical water leak occurs when there is a lot of condensation, so water is constantly dripping into the catch pan. This water is then directed outside by the system, or occasionally it will leak. 

Finding refrigerant leaks accurately can be difficult, due in part to the fact that there are several types of refrigerant leaks. The most common type of leak is known as a standing leak (SL). When the air conditioner is turned off, an SL can be detected. Temperature dependent leaks (TDL) occur when there is a condenser blockage, during the defrosting period or in high ambient air. These occur in the presence of intense heat. Pressure dependent leaks (PDLs) are discovered as pressure builds up in the cooling system.

If you suspect your AC has a leak, contact a professional like Doug’s Service Company to inspect your unit. If it is leaking we’d be happy to fix your leaking AC.

I’ve used Dougs on a few occasions, to do a new central a/c system and ducts, a/c preventive maintenance and most recently to unclog a drain. Each time they have come out it has been a pleasure doing business with them.
