Troubleshooting Tips

Before you contact us to schedule service for air conditioning repair, try these few things.

checking circuit breaker

Circuit Breaker
Go to your electrical panel and find the AC breaker. Is it tripped? If so, turn it to off and then back on. If the breaker trips again contact us immediately as something else is causing the problem.

clogged air filter

Air Filter(s)
Check the filter(s) for buildup. If the filter is dirty, it will block the proper airflow and cause your outdoor air conditioner unit to shut down. A clogged filter can cause hot and cold spots in rooms.

adjusting thermostat temp

Thermostat
Check to make sure that the thermostat is set in cooling mode. Make sure that the temperature is set cooler than the current indoor temperature. If it isn’t, your system won’t know to provide cooling.

Air Conditioning Maintenance Plan Benefits

You probably never think about your air conditioning system if it runs smoothly. However, worn out parts and build up could be causing problems under the surface. When your AC system has to work harder to compensate for these issues, it uses more energy, which increases your monthly utility bills. Eventually, these invisible issues may result in equipment failure, putting your family’s safety and comfort at risk.

With our yearly 15-point inspection on the cooling side of the equipment, costly and unexpected AC repairs can be avoided, ultimately paying for itself. 

15 Point A/C Inspection Checklist

Our AC professionals will inspect the following items to ensure your air conditioner runs at peak performance which translates to lower energy bills each month:

1. Lubricate motors
2. Check fan belts
3. Change filters (Customer Supplied)
4. Check evaporator air temperatures
5. Check wiring & connections
6. Check refrigerant charge
7. Check operating pressures
8. Check voltage and AMP draw
9. Clean condensate line
10. Check performance of system
11. Check contactor points
12. Check pressure switches
13. Clean condenser coil
14. Check temperature differential
15. Clean evaporator coil*

*Evaporator cleaning is included. In the event the coil is plugged and needs to be removed, additional labor will be charged with discount.

You should also know that most air conditioning manufacturers require these annual service checks as part of their equipment warranties. Lack of maintenance may void the warranty on your system.

Comforting

We were first introduced to Trident when they were commissioned by our realtor to inspect the A/C systems for a house we planned to purchase. After the experience with them for our home purchase we did not hesitate to have them install a new system in our rental home and I have entered into a maintenance agreement with Trident on our home we purchased. It can be challenging to find reputable organizations that look out for what the customer needs. I have recommended Trident to many of my friends and coworkers. It is comforting to have the feeling of trust with the recommendations and services of Trident.

Fantastic Work

Love this company! I finally found a heating and air company that I can trust! These guys are honest and really helped us out when another local company put us in a compromising position right before a cold front and Christmas. Sean and his guys will tell it to you straight. They do fantastic work and they are not interested in charging exorbitant prices for it. Definitely the best heating and air company that you will find in the greater Charlotte area!

Responsive, Prompt, and Polite

Sean Smith was very responsive, prompt, and polite. Did not try to sell other products, but explained that the Freon my unit requires will no longer be available after January 2020. So I will probably be looking for a new system before summer next year. I was very satisfied and will certainly call him again.
