Air Conditioning Repairs & Maintenance in Champaign
A reliable air conditioner starts with regular maintenance. If you want continuous cool air to keep you comfortable this summer, call Castle Home Comfort for a tune-up before problems begin. If your air conditioner is already giving you issues this year, don’t hesitate to call our experts for immediate service. Repair may be our goal, but sometimes replacement is necessary depending on the age of your system. Learn more about our AC services below.
Air Conditioning Maintenance
When you call Castle Home Comfort for your yearly tune-up service, you can expect a professional and qualified technician to perform a thorough inspection of your AC unit. The technician will check refrigerant levels, inspect internal motor parts, clean various internal components, and ensure proper functioning as it cools your home. This tune-up will help your air conditioner run more efficiently, stay in good working condition, and even help you save money on your energy bills.
The technician will point out any potential issues they come across and let you know how they can help you prevent a breakdown from occurring. You want your air conditioner to last as long as possible. By performing preventative maintenance, you are giving your unit the best chance at achieving longevity.
Air Conditioning Repair
Small repairs throughout your air conditioner’s lifetime can help it last until that 10-15 year mark when they typically need replacement. When you notice a problem with your air conditioning, it’s important to call a professional right away for repair. The sooner they can take a look, the better your chance at a favorable outcome.
Some repair needs are more obvious than others. You may want to call Castle Home Comfort for air conditioning repair if you notice any of the following signs:
- Air conditioner doesn’t turn on.
- Air conditioner doesn’t produce any cool air.
- Air conditioner continually runs or frequently cycles back on.
- You hear loud banging noises or other strange noises coming from the unit.
- There are burning or musty smells coming from vents.
- Running your air conditioning is costing you much more than it did last year.
- There is water or refrigerant leaking from the unit.
Many times, the above issues can be easily repaired. If your air conditioner is older and is leaking, the compressor is failing, or the motor is failing, a total unit replacement may be more cost-effective in the long run than trying to repair these issues. If you are on the fence about repairing versus replacing, our technicians can review with you your options and explain the costs/benefits so you can make an informed choice.
Air Conditioning Replacement
Eventually, you may need to replace your air conditioner. Whether it has sustained irreparable damage or is simply not running as efficiently as it once was, our professional installers can hook you up with cooler air in no time.
Many homeowners choose a similar air conditioner to replace their old ones. However, it may be helpful to review your options beforehand to find the best fit for your needs.
If your home underwent a renovation or addition was built onto your home, your old air conditioner may not be meeting the cooling demands for the increased amount of space. Your air conditioner may be inefficient and cause you to be spending more on your energy bills than you need. Have our technicians measure your home to ensure you are choosing the best size of the air conditioner to keep you most comfortable.
No matter how good of an air conditioner you choose, it won’t provide maximum efficiency or comfort if it’s not properly installed. You can depend on the experts at Castle Home Comfort for quality workmanship and excellent customer service when it comes to your next air conditioning installation. Call us for service today.
Emergency AC Services
We know how stressful a broken air conditioner can be in the middle of summer. No matter what day or time your air conditioner decides to call it quits, our expert technicians are ready to respond to your emergency air conditioning needs with the same level of service as any other call. Our professionals will quickly inspect and diagnose the issue, offer affordable repair or replacement options, and restore comfort to your home once again.
The best way to prevent emergencies is to schedule a yearly tune-up at the end of spring or beginning of summer. This way our technicians can catch any potential issues before they cause an untimely breakdown. Of course, some emergencies are unavoidable, and we will always be ready to assist when you need us most.
Champaign Heating Maintenance, Repair, Replacement
Regular maintenance on your heating system not only slows down regular wear and tear, but it can also help prevent health and safety hazards as well. Neglecting a furnace or other type of heating system can lead to dangerous carbon monoxide leaks, fire risk, and poor air quality issues. Service from Castle Home Comfort will ensure proper precautions have been taken before you run your heating system this winter. See more about how we can help maintain, repair, or replace your heating systems below.
With yearly maintenance checks, you can expect your furnace to last between 15 and 20 years. Even if everything seems fine with your furnace or it hasn’t displayed any problems since turning it on for the season, it is still a good idea to have it check out. As a vehicle, regular furnace inspections are necessary for optimal functioning.
During a furnace tune-up, a trained technician will inspect the overall function of the unit, including the motor, wires, and burners. They will also clean various parts that are prone to accumulating dust and grime, and then lubricate moving parts within the unit. Lastly, the technician will replace the air filter and ensure proper communication between the thermostat and furnace.
Much like air conditioner maintenance, this yearly furnace tune-up will maximize its efficiency and help prevent a sudden breakdown when you least expect it. Minor repairs may be necessary during a tune-up to keep everything functioning as it should. The technician will explain which repairs they recommend to keep your furnace running for as long as possible.
Before a total breakdown occurs, your furnace may display a few warning signs that something is amiss. If you suspect an issue or notice any of the following signs, call the professionals at Castle Home Comfort for immediate service:
- Your home is not heating to your desired temperature, even after double-checking the thermostat settings.
- Your home is taking much longer than normal to heat, even when the weather isn’t too extreme.
- There’s a sudden spike in your energy bill.
- Pilot light flame is yellow or orange instead of blue.
- There are soot marks around the furnace.
- You notice a small leak or pool of water around the unit.
- There are strange noises or smells that are coming from the unit.
Many of these issues can be easily remedied with a quick repair or inspection. Ignoring these warning signs, however, can lead to a premature breakdown, irreparable damage, and safety risks. If something doesn’t seem right, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
Problems with the pilot light should always be addressed right away. A malfunctioning pilot light can lead to a carbon monoxide leak, which can cause extreme health effects for you, your pets, and anyone else in the home. If you suspect a carbon monoxide leak, leave the premises and call a professional immediately. If you don’t already have a carbon monoxide detector near your furnace, it is a good idea to have one installed as a preemptive warning system before disaster strikes.
Eventually, all good things must come to an end, including your trusty furnace. Most furnaces don’t make it past the 20-year mark even with regular maintenance. If you do have yearly inspections done on your furnace, your technician can warn you when it is nearing the end of its usefulness. When replacement becomes necessary, you will be prepared with solutions that fit the needs of you and your home.
You may consider a replacement if:
- Your unit is needing frequent or expensive repairs.
- Corrosion, wear, and tear has made your unit less efficient.
- A carbon monoxide leak has been detected.
- You are unsatisfied with the unit’s heating abilities.
- The unit is nearing or has surpassed the 20-year mark.
A furnace breakdown in the middle of winter is not ideal. If a replacement is the only logical option, you may have to wait a day or two before heat is restored to your home. To avoid this uncomfortable scenario, schedule your furnace replacement with Castle Home Comfort today before you are left without heat. We can help you find the right furnace for the size of your home and a set-up that fits your lifestyle. A comfortable winter is only a call away.
The experts at Castle Home Comfort are also trained and experienced in boiler maintenance, repair, and replacement. If you have a boiler as your source of heat in the winter, you can trust our professionals to provide quality service for your unit to help it remain strong and efficient throughout the winter season.
Like a furnace, your boiler may display warning signs when it needs repair or replacement. Call us right away if it is not providing adequate heat, there are loud or strange noises coming from the vents, the pilot light is yellow or flickering, or your energy bills have dramatically increased. We may be able to provide repair solutions to help you get the most out of your boiler before needing replacement.
Heat Pump Services
Heat pumps are alternative heating and cooling solutions many homeowners in Champaign are taking advantage of in their homes. A benefit to a heat pump is that they are easier to install than a ducted HVAC system. Heat pumps don’t require invasive or extensive installation like an HVAC system, so they are ideal for homes that don’t currently have a ducted system or don’t have room within the walls for ductwork.
Heat pumps are also versatile (can act as a healing method in the winter and cooling method in the summer) and offer more freedom of use. Homeowners can choose to heat or cool certain areas of their home with heat pump zones or individually controlled air handlers, instead of having to run their system for the entire home. This can lead to greater use of energy and lower monthly costs for you.
Like any other system, a heat pump must be regularly maintained for maximum efficiency and longevity. Contact Castle Home Comfort for a professional heat pump tune-up today. Our technicians are also ready to assist with heat pump repairs and replacement when your unit is experiencing problems. With professional service from Castle Home Service, you can rest assured knowing your heat pump has received quality care and attention, resulting in maximum dependability throughout the year.
Indoor Air Quality Systems
Well-functioning heating and cooling systems are only one piece of the puzzle when it comes to your complete indoor comfort. Air quality issues could be making you sick, irritating your lungs, or causing damage to your airflow systems. Indoor air pollution can be easily mitigated with an air quality system from Castle Home Comfort.
We can help set your home up with a humidifier/dehumidifier to control the humidity levels in your home. This can help make your heating and cooling systems more efficient as well as prevent unwanted mold growth from taking over in your home. Whole-home air purifiers filter indoor pollutants before they have a chance to blow through your vents and into your lungs. Lastly, a UVC light within your airflow system neutralizes the smallest of particles that may make it past the air filter, such as bacteria and viruses.
Not only do air quality systems help provide clean air for those with asthma and other health risks, but they can also help keep your airflow system free of dust, excess moisture, and airborne irritants. If these solutions would help you breathe easier inside your home, contact one of our professionals to learn more about our installation and maintenance services.
Duct Cleaning and Maintenance
Many homeowners concern themselves with the health and function of their HVAC system without giving much thought to the ducts as well. However, ducts are just as important to keep clean and well-maintained for the overall effectiveness of your system. Dirty ducts can lead to the poor air quality within the home, and gaps or holes in the ductwork itself can significantly reduce the efficiency of your system.
Duct Cleaning Services
Duct cleaning is especially necessary if you have recently completed a construction project in your home, as excess dust and debris could have made its way into your HVAC system. Another reason to have your ducts checked is if your home recently experienced a critter infestation. Left behind remains and droppings could be causing bacteria and odors to circulate throughout your home. Lastly, high indoor humidity levels could be causing mold growth within your ducts and giving your family allergies and other health symptoms.
With a duct cleaning service from Castle Home Comfort, you can start breathing better air today. Don’t delay setting up a cleaning appointment if you suspect an issue with the air quality within your ducts.
Ducts may also sustain damage, become loose, or develop holes, leading to an inefficient HVAC system. Even tiny holes can cause large losses of airflow when your heating or cooling system is running. This means your HVAC has to run longer to achieve the desired temperature. Not only does this waste energy and cause an increase in your bills, but it also leads to more wear and tears on your system. To avoid frequent repairs on your HVAC system, have your ducts inspected and repaired by one of our qualified technicians today.
At Castle Home Comfort, we care about every step in the process to deliver clean and comfortable air throughout your home. From the mechanics of your system to the filtration of indoor pollutants, we know that everything works together for your ultimate well-being.
Our professional and trained technicians are available now to provide reliable service on your air conditioning, heating, and air quality systems. Whether you need repair, general maintenance, or a quote on replacement, our representatives are ready to direct your call and answer your questions. For a job done right, contact Castle Home Services today.
