High temperatures and oppressive humidity levels are par for the course here in Charlotte, especially during the spring and summer months. This makes it vital to ensure that your air conditioning is blowing cold air efficiently, keeping your home comfortable even on the hottest days.

Of course, the last thing you want is for your unit to go out in the middle of summer—because it’s always more stressful to deal with a bad air conditioning unit during the peak AC season. That’s why Andy Lewis offers AC repair and maintenance services, including after-hours emergency services, for homeowners throughout the Charlotte area. Our technicians are trained to treat each client the way they would want to be treated themselves—meaning we always show up on time, troubleshoot your unit quickly, and recommend the best repair solution, never trying to sell you on products or services you don’t need.

Our HVAC repair professionals have won the trust of homeowners throughout Charlotte—and should you ever need to make an AC service call, we hope our high standards of integrity will be a breath of fresh air!

Troubleshooting Your HVAC Problems

We get repair calls for many different reasons, and one of the most common is for refrigerant leaks. If your HVAC system is low on refrigerant, it will run at a less efficient pace, increasing your utility bills yet decreasing the comfort of your home. Eventually, the AC unit will start to freeze, by which point simply adding more refrigerant may be too little, too late. Andy Lewis can provide AC repair to fix this problem, offer maintenance and tune-ups to keep it that way, or inform you on whether you should replace a system.

In fact, we’d love to help you save some time, money, and frustration by providing you with some simple troubleshooting ideas you can perform on your HVAC system prior to requesting a service call.  Here are some things to check for if your air conditioning system isn’t blowing cold air, without having to call the professionals:

  • Check your breakers; make sure they are still on. Breakers can flip for any number of reasons, and it’s usually not something you need an HVAC repair tech to address. By flipping the breaker back on, the problem is usually solved right then!
  • Check your filters. A dirty filter can impede the function of the air conditioner, so be sure to check and clean your filters every month, replacing them when needed. Although filter manufacturers state that filters may last “UP TO” 6 to 12 months, this may not be the case in your home. Pets, the number of people in the home, and the number of times the doors open each day are all factors in how long your filters last.

If these solutions don’t help you get your unit working the way it’s supposed to, that’s when you know it’s time to call the AC repair experts at Andy Lewis!

Keep Your AC in Prime Condition

Of course, the best way to handle AC repairs is to avoid them in the first place—and that means doing some preventative maintenance on your HVAC, twice a year. That’s why we ultimately recommend a preventative maintenance plan; for a minimal monthly fee, you can keep The Andyman on retainer, and we’ll come out to clean your system, check your filters, and make any other HVAC tweaks as needed. This offers you the ultimate peace of mind—knowledge that our experts will spot any warning signs and help prevent them before your cold air goes out!

Whether you want to sign up for the maintenance plan or just need a one-time tune-up, we’re here for you! The Andy Lewis team offers emergency after-hours service at NO extra charge for nights and weekends. It is our goal to educate you on the different options available and provide information about maintenance, tune-ups, repairs, replacements, and indoor air quality solutions, all within the budget you set!
