We provide expert repairs to all makes and models of air conditioning units at commercial and residential locations throughout Edwardsville, Illinois. Call B & W to inspect your AC unit to determine if it needs any repairs, to schedule regular tune-ups for your air conditioner, and for emergency service any time, day or night. Some signs that you should call us for a repair include knocking sounds from your unit, an increase on your energy bill with same usage, or difficulty cooling down your house. Our technicians will look for cracks or loose fittings that could lead to gas leaks, check refrigerant levels, and ensure the coils are clean. Some of the components of your air conditioner we repair include:

  • Capacitator
  • Compressor
  • Filters
  • Condenser Coil
  • Evaporator Coil
  • Ductwork
  • Fans
  • Humidistats
  • Thermostats
  • And more!

If you are not an HVAC professional, you probably don’t know what some of these parts are. Our technicians are happy to explain the components of your system and how they work, but we have highlighted a few for you here.

Refrigerant: Refrigerant is a fluid that absorbs indoor heat to circulate and transport warm air outside. Technicians will check refrigerant levels during an inspection because low levels can affect the compressor and cause your air conditioner to malfunction.

Compressor: The compressor is part of the outdoor AC unit that circulates and directs energy to push refrigerant through the evaporator and condenser coils. Condenser coils are also part of your outdoor AC system, whereas the evaporator coils are located in your indoor air conditioner. If refrigerant levels are too low, your compressor can stop working.

Evaporator Coil: The evaporator coil in your indoor AC unit attracts warm indoor air that will be transported outside through the condenser coil. When refrigerant circulates through the evaporator coil and absorbs the heat, that warm air evaporates as the temperature increases and travels to be released outside through the compressor.

Condenser Coil: The condenser coil and compressor are components in your outdoor air conditioning system that work together to discharge the heat absorbed by the refrigerant in the evaporator coil. The refrigerant carrying heat from inside cools as the outdoor unit’s fan wafts air over the condenser coils.

Benefits of Routine AC Tune-ups

Extends the life of your air conditioner: All machinery requires maintenance, and your air conditioner is no exception. Having a professional clean and repair smaller issues regularly will keep your AC running efficiently, so it will not have to work as hard to cool your home or office. You will be aware of any issues with your air conditioner and have them fixed so there is no surprise breakdown later. When you wait to repair damaged equipment, the severity of the issue worsens, and you may have to replace your AC sooner than if you had seasonal tune-ups.

Helps your AC run more efficiently: Ensuring that your air conditioner is clean, damage-free, and that all components are working properly will help it run at optimal condition. When your AC runs efficiently, it is more likely to handle the task of cooling your home against excessively hot temperatures outside, as opposed to an air conditioner that must work harder to keep up with unusually hot weather.

Saves you money: When we regularly inspect your air conditioning unit, we can catch small issues and repair them before they turn into major problems that can cause your AC to fail. The expense of seasonal maintenance is a worthy investment over major emergency repairs or replacement costs if the issue cannot be repaired. If your well-functioning AC does not have to work as hard or run as often to cool your home, it saves money on your monthly utility bill.

Clean machine means healthier air: Part of your tune-up service includes thoroughly cleaning your cooling system and its components, as well as changing dirty air filters. Dirty coils can cause your air conditioner to malfunction, and you may be breathing in unhealthy air if you infrequently change your air filters. When your AC is clean, the air blowing through your vents is clean.
