5 star ratingLast week we had a service visit from Ramon Chavez regarding some airflow issues we were experiencing. Ramon was incredible- I work from home and I am frequently on the phone with agents, Ramon was very considerate of this and despite him having to be in my office to assess the problem he was polite, quiet and very thoughtful. He also came Covid prepared with a mask and thoughtfully wore "booties" over his work shoes to prevent any mess. While the issue is not completely resolved yet Ramon explained the problem to me in layman's terms and also let me know what the next steps would be to getting it corrected. Thank you Southwest HVAC for having an employee like Ramon who was professional, respectful, and informative.

Our team performs detailed inspections to identify leaks, repair damaged components, and maintain effective drainage. This is one of many ways we can safeguard your home and preserve your AC’s performance.

Run Testing

Run testing is an essential step in AC repair that involves running the system after repairs to ensure everything functions correctly. This step involves operating the system to confirm that critical components such as the fan, refrigerant levels, and compressor are functioning optimally. It confirms that the repairs are effective and the system runs efficiently, resulting in peak comfort levels in your home.

Refrigerant Leaks

Tackling refrigerant leaks, whether it’s Freon or a newer type, begins with an in-depth diagnostic process to detect leaks. Our priority is to seal these leaks and refill refrigerant levels, restoring optimal cooling performance for smooth and dependable operation year-round.

Addressing Noises

Diagnosing unusual noises in air conditioners demands a thorough examination due to the wide range of possible causes. Noise can stem from anything from loose components to faulty fan blades to compressor issues and beyond. Our crew will conduct a detailed inspection to pinpoint the source of the noise, complete the right repairs, and get your system operating quietly and efficiently once again. This detailed approach allows your air conditioner to provide optimal cooling performance and maintains a peaceful, comfortable environment in your home.

Diagnostics

Our air conditioning repairs always begin with a detailed inspection. We conduct a meticulous diagnostic process, examining the electrical connections, compressor, and condenser coils to identify any issues impacting your AC’s functionality. This careful assessment allows us to offer precise repairs that keep your system dependable and efficient.

Component Repair or Replacement
Belts

Air conditioning belts are essential for transferring power from the motor to the fan or compressor, enabling proper functionality. As belts age, they may crack, deteriorate, or lose grip, causing ineffective cooling or system malfunction. Our team inspects belts for wear indications and replaces them when needed to maintain efficient AC unit operation.

Blower Motor

In air conditioning systems, blower motors are pivotal for circulating air through ducts to regulate indoor temperatures. Issues such as electrical faults, motor wear, or debris buildup can impede airflow. Our Long Beach air conditioning repair experts meticulously diagnose blower motor issues and remedy them with replacements or repairs to maintain effective air distribution and comfort levels in your residence.

Evaporator Coil(s)

AC unit evaporator coils are crucial in absorbing heat from indoor air, cooling it, and distributing it throughout your home. Problems like dirt buildup, refrigerant leaks, or coil corrosion can reduce efficiency and cooling capacity. Our technicians will examine and cleanse the coils, mend any leaks, and replace damaged coils as needed to maintain a comfortable environment in your home or business.

Capacitor and Contactor

In air conditioning systems, contactors and capacitors play crucial roles in starting and running compressors and motors. Issues such as worn-out capacitors or burnt contact points can cause system malfunctions or failure to start. Our professionals diagnose these issues precisely and replace malfunctioning capacitors or contactors to restore seamless operation and consistent performance.

Compressor

Compressors in air conditioning systems are vital for circulating refrigerant to remove heat from indoor air. Refrigerant leaks or mechanical failures can impede its function, causing subpar cooling. Our technicians conduct extensive tests to identify compressor issues and then repair or replace them to bring back optimal system functionality for dependable and efficient cooling.

Coil Fins

Air conditioner coil fins improve heat transfer efficiency by expanding the surface area for airflow. Damage from bending or debris can limit airflow and result in decreased cooling efficiency. Our technicians examine and straighten or replace damaged fins, ensure unimpeded airflow, and verify optimal heat exchange to uphold your AC system’s top performance.

Circuit Board

Circuit boards in air conditioners oversee tasks, such as system operation and temperature regulation. Issues like electrical surges or component failures can interfere with these tasks, leading to inconsistent operation or total system failure. Our Long Beach air conditioner repair technicians employ sophisticated testing techniques to diagnose circuit board issues and resolve them by replacing or repairing faulty components to restore proper performance and functionality.

Condenser Unit

Your air conditioner’s condenser unit is responsible for releasing heat absorbed from indoors to the outdoors. Problems such as malfunctioning fan motors, coil blockages, or refrigerant leaks can reduce heat transfer efficiency. Our technicians identify and resolve condenser unit problems, eliminate obstructions, seal leaks, and substitute faulty parts to restore cooling efficiency.

Fan Blades

The fan blades in your AC are critical for moving air through the AC system to facilitate cooling. Issues such as imbalance, bent blades, or motor wear can result in system inefficiency and reduced airflow. Our team evaluates and adjusts fan blades, replaces any worn or damaged components, and achieves proper alignment to maximize airflow and improve system performance.
