Signs You Need AC Repair

All air conditioning systems are prone to develop problems over time, so it's important to recognize the signs that indicate you may need AC repair. Here are some common signs to watch out for:

  • Insufficient Cooling: If your AC is running but your home isn't cooling as it should, it's a clear sign that something is wrong. This can be caused by various issues, such as a refrigerant leak or a malfunctioning compressor.
  • Poor Airflow: If the airflow from your vents is weak or uneven, it could be due to clogged filters, ductwork issues, or a malfunctioning blower fan.
  • Unusual Noises: Strange or loud noises coming from your AC unit, such as grinding, banging, or squealing, may indicate a mechanical problem that needs attention.
  • Strange Odors: Foul or musty odors when the AC is running can be a sign of mold or mildew growth in the system, a dirty air filter, or electrical issues.
  • Leaking or Moisture: If you notice water or refrigerant leaks around your AC unit, it could be a sign of a refrigerant leak, a clogged condensate line, or a malfunctioning drainage system.
  • Thermostat Problems: Inaccurate temperature control, unresponsive thermostats, or the inability to turn the AC on or off are potential indicators of thermostat issues.
  • Cycling On and Off Frequently: An AC unit that cycles on and off rapidly (short cycling) may have problems with the thermostat, refrigerant levels, or the compressor.
  • High Energy Bills: A sudden increase in your energy bills without a corresponding change in usage can suggest an inefficient or malfunctioning AC system.
  • Ice Buildup: Ice forming on the evaporator coils or refrigerant lines can indicate problems with airflow, refrigerant levels, or other issues.
  • Age of the System: Air conditioners have a lifespan, typically around 10-15 years. If your system is old and showing signs of wear, it may be time for a repair or replacement.

If you notice any of these signs, you should contact us here at Burkhardt to diagnose and repair the issue promptly. It’s also worth noting that regular air conditioning maintenance can also help prevent many of these problems and extend the lifespan of your AC system.

If you need AC work done Burkhardt is the company to call

Out of 3 quotes Burkhardt was by far the most professional, knowledgeable, affordable. Chris Isemann who is their Solution Specialist was extremely helpful. Where other companies failed Burkhardt thrived. Chris inspected every part of the unit, inside, outside, attic area and more. He took the time to explain what was the issues. The install team was just as impressive. They went above and beyond to complete the job. The craftsmanship was perfect. If you need AC work done Burkhardt is the company to call.

Reliable, trustworthy, and quality workmanship!

5 stars! I can't say enough good things about this company especially our technician Chris! He went above and beyond to repair our a/c and provided the most reasonable solution to fix mistakes made by another a/c contractor. Burkhardt is locally owned, and I highly recommend using them for all your a/c and heating needs - reliable, trustworthy, and quality workmanship!

I would highly recommend!

The technician was scheduled to come to my home in the afternoon, but called and advised that he could get to me earlier in the day. He arrived early that morning, diagnosed and repaired my AC quickly. He was very professional and polite. I would highly recommend!

Highly recommend this company!

Cannot say enough great things about using Burkhardt for all our HVAC needs! We first hired them to do home inspections, and they found a serious issue on a newly renovated house we planned to purchase. When we bought our house, we signed up for their annual service and have been very happy for over 3 years. But where they really shined was when our AC went out on a Saturday, in August, in New Orleans. We called to request service, and within 15 minutes a tech called to say he was on his way. Super courteous and knowledgeable (as always) and gave us great tips to help us limp along until the part we needed to fully repair could be ordered on Monday. Highly recommend this company!

Provided Quality Service

I really appreciate the care and quality that I’ve received from Burkhardt air conditioning. Everyone who has come to my home, treated me with dignity and respect and provided quality service. I’d like to commend Parker for servicing my air conditioner. He is such a pleasant, young man and respectful. I really truly enjoyed his company. Also the other man who came to flush my drain line and fix it they were so sweet and efficient. Thank you so much gentlemen for servicing My Home.

Electricity bills have actually been lower than the same time last year!

Burkhardt did a full HVAC system replacement for us last year, and we have been very pleased with their attention to detail and overall customer service. The new system has handled the excessive heat this summer with no problems, and our electricity bills have actually been lower than the same time last year!

Professional In Every Way

After trying several other companies, we found Burkhardt. They have been professional in every way- from administrative and scheduling, to the interactions and work done by each and every employee who has been out to the house. We have had our ductwork and filters replaced, and their work is far superior to those who we’d hired before them. Burkhardt also maintains our generator, which is a relief to us as well.
