Air Conditioning Repair

While we all think about how important it is to have a working furnace or heating system in our homes or businesses, we may not realize that having a working air conditioner is just as important. Living in the Toronto area means hot, humid summers.

The air can often reach dangerously high temperatures. For people who are in a store or a house, not having a way to bring the temperature and humidity down can actually be life-threatening.


This is why it is important to be able to find someone who understands how a commercial HVAC or residential AC system works. These machines all work along the same principle. It is simply the internal components that will vary from system to system. Most air conditioning systems have the following components:

  • Fans which pull in heated air and push out heated air
  • Condenser cores which draw the heat and excess moisture out of the air
  • A pressurized coolant system that pulls heat out of the air and moves it away
  • A drainage system where water from condensed vapor can escape

Central air conditioning systems will use ductwork that allows cooled air to travel to various parts of a home or store. Local units such as portable units or window units will simply blow the cold air out in a localized area.

Regardless of whether you live in the middle of Toronto, Ontario Canada or in other parts of the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) you will at some point need air conditioning repair. You should look for a company that has trained technicians who are experienced with working on a variety of different systems.

Signs as to When you Need Professional Air-Conditioning Repair Services

As summer approaches, one of the appliances that you want to function seamlessly is of course your air-conditioner. To ensure that all the air-conditioners in your home are up and running, one of the basic requirements is servicing them. You can spend your summer months comfortably if your air-conditioners function without a problem.

However, air-conditioners are rarely used during the winter months. o there’s a possibility that your air-conditioner has developed some issues during the previous summers or during the months it has not been used.

This could make life difficult for you as such. You’ll need the services of efficient air-conditioning repairs to ensure that your air conditioner functions efficiently.

The efficiency of an air-conditioner is of prime importance because it invariably consumes a lot of energy for functioning. If it’s not serviced and the faults not repaired you could end up paying higher power bills.

Therefore, when you are using your air-conditioners, ensure that it works without any issues. It’s recommended that you watch out for any warning signals that may indicate that your air-conditioning requires repairs.

Here are some common warning signals in an AC that you must be alert of:

If your A/C blows warm air

When your a/c blows warm air, it could be because of the thermostat setting. Make sure that you set the thermostat to a temperature below the room temperature. However, despite adjusting the thermostat controls if the a/c continues to blow warm air, it could be an issue with the compressor or restricted air-flow. In which case you’ll require the services of professional air conditioning repairs.

Insufficient Air Flow

This is quite a common problem. Insufficient airflow is an indication that the air-conditioning is not working efficiently. It could also indicate blockage that is preventing air movement in your home’s duct work. This problem could also be due to a clogged air filter or a broken motor. It’s best to engage a professional to analyze the cause for the issue and set it right.

Frequent cooling cycles

An air-conditioner is designed for regular cooling cycles. But if you notice that your air-conditioner has frequent cooling cycles, then it needs to be checked by an expert.

Water Leaks

An air conditioner uses refrigerant for cooling and it may produce condensation while cooling. However, the condensate(water) should not leak in your house. Leakage of water is an indication that your cooling system is faulty and needs attention.

Bad Odors

If you notice that your a/c is giving out bad odors, then you’ll need air-conditioning repair services to resolve the issue. It can be done by either tuning up the a/c or a thorough cleaning session.

High Humidity

During the summer and spring months, the humidity levels in the atmosphere are quite high. But when you are using an air conditioner, you should not experience the effects of humidity indoors. In case, you experience it, it indicates a fault with your cooling system.

Unusual Sounds

Most air-conditioners function with a low sound. However, if your a/c makes rattling/buzzing or grinding noises, it indicates that there is a major problem with it and it needs urgent attention of an expert.

    Peter was on time, polite and very knowledgeable. He took the time to diagnose the issue with my dishwasher and then followed by explaining and showing me exactly what the issue was. He explained his plan to fix the issue and identified … More the potential issues that would follow should additional work or parts be needed. Luckily his first solution worked perfectly. He stayed to ensure a test of the dishwasher worked and that I was happy with the resolution. He also took the time to explain a separate issue I was having with the fridge while we were waiting for the dishwasher test to happen. Peter was a great technician to have on their team - very knowledgeable, professional and personal... great experience and highly recommended.
