Air Conditioning FAQs
Is My AC Unit Under Warranty?
It’s certainly possible. Most AC unit warranties last at least 5 years.
Not sure how old your unit is? Just locate the label on your unit and check the manufacture date. If you don’t know where your AC unit is (or if you can’t find the manufacture date), we can find out for you once we get to your home or office.
Your split system or central AC repair may be covered by your manufacturer.
How Much Is A Service Call?
Our base fee for central air conditioning repair and other HVAC services is $89.
What Causes AC Units to Freeze Up?
There are several reasons why your AC unit may have frozen up.
Here are a few:
- Low refrigerant—sometimes a leak in the refrigerant lines can result in low refrigerant level.
- Dirty evaporator coil—As your evaporator coil accumulates dirt over time, it can restrict airflow and cause your unit to freeze.
- Broken blower motor (or relay)—a blower motor that isn’t running (or is running at an improper speed) can cause your A/C unit to freeze and/or work sporadically.
- A dirty air filter—if your air filter is too dirty, then airflow can become so restricted that the unit freezes up. If you suspect this may be the case, turn off your A/C until to let the ice melt. Then, replace your air filter and turn it back on. If that gets you back in action, then you just saved yourself a service call!
What Can I Do to Reduce Allergens?
There are several routes you can take to reduce allergens in your home:
- Buy a HEPA filter with a MERV rating of at least 10.
- Change your air filter (at least) every other month—and possibly more often during the summer
- Get on one of our A/C maintenance plans to reduce the build-up on your blower fans and coils
- Have us clean your air ducts
- Depending upon your situation, you may also benefit from a whole-home air cleaner, UV air treatment system, central humidifier, central dehumidifier, and/or an ERV/HRV ventilation system.

My House Isn't Cooling Well—Do I Need a Bigger A/C?
Not necessarily. In fact, a unit that’s too large may not run enough to keep the humidity in your home in check, which is just as bad as having a unit that’s too small. When the humidity in your home is too high, mold grows more easily. When your humidity is too low, your skin (and even your electronics) can suffer.
Most people don’t know it, but most newer thermostats show the relative humidity in your home or office. The optimum indoor range is 35%-50%, but 40%-50% is ideal.

How Do I Increase My Cooling System's Energy Efficiency?
1. Consider a smart thermostat – Smart thermostats can be programmed to adjust the temperature in your home when you aren’t there, reducing your energy bill.
2. Insulate your home – Insulation keeps air from escaping your home, which means your central air conditioning system doesn’t have to work as hard to cool your home.
3. Get a ceiling fan – Ceiling fans can augment the air flow in your home, which helps manage the load for your AC unit.
4. Consider purchasing energy efficient windows – Insulated windows can reduce your utility bill by keeping cool air inside your home longer.
These tips can increase your SEER Rating (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating), which is just a fancy HVAC term that means, you’ll get better bang for your buck.
Do You Work On Heaters Too?
Absolutely! At Walker Heating & Cooling, we do it all. Contact us anytime if you need a pro to look at your furnace or heat pump.
Before Calling for AC Repair, Try These Quick Fixes…
Check Your Thermostat
Before you call us for AC repair, make sure your indoor thermostat is set to “cool”. If not, then the air conditioning is not on. You may merely be running the fan. We know you already know that, but sometimes in life, it’s the things we “know” that go easily overlooked!
Check Your Air Filter
A dirty AC filter can dramatically affect your air conditioner. Thankfully, it’s almost always easy to check and even replace an air filter yourself.
Your AC filter can usually be accessed via the utility closet inside your home or office. Inspect and make sure it is not dirty.
If your filter is medium gray colored, then it’s ready to be discarded and replaced with a new one.
FYI: There’s no standard size for air conditioning filters. You can find the size of yours printed on the side of your old filter.
Pro Tip: If you frequently forget to replace your A/C filter, then you can have air filters shipped to you automatically from Amazon at a time interval of your choosing (typically every 2-3 months is good).
Check The Circuit Breaker
A power spike may have tripped your AC’s circuit breaker.
Go to your electrical panel (usually found in the garage or laundry room).
Is the switch that controls your AC unit toggled between on and off? If so, toggle it to the OFF position first — then back ON.
If your AC unit comes back on without a hitch, then your problem may be solved. If, however, the breaker trips again, contact us immediately! This means there is a problem a professional needs to solve.
