Fixing Common Air Conditioner Problems

Not having air conditioning in your Simi Valley home on a hot muggy windless day is horrible. How could your air conditioner break down at the worst possible time? More often the reason your air conditioner is not keeping you cool is because of these common air conditioner problems:

  • Poor maintenance – Neglecting to schedule the recommended annual or semi-annual service maintenance checks.
  • Faulty installation – Allowing an unlicensed or non-certified HVAC contractor to install, modify or adjust your AC unit without following manufacturer’s directions.
  • Improper operation – Not reading manufacturers operating manual or instructions in order to confirm it works properly.

All of our NATE-Certified HVAC technicians in Simi Valley are trained to diagnose, fix and install all brands, makes and models of air conditioners. Years of field experience have taught them to quickly identify the root cause of a problem and know what repair steps are required. For example, a tech would immediately think a loud vibrating noise coming from a window AC unit is due to an improper installation.

Below are the most common air conditioning repairs we perform in Simi Valley, CA.

  • Refrigerant Leak Detection & Repair
  • AC Circuit Board Replacement
  • Thermostat Replacement
  • Capacitor Replacement
  • Contactor Replacement
  • AC Fan Motor Replacement

Some of these repairs could have been avoided if the homeowner didn’t overlook the recommended maintenance service visits. However, like most mechanical things, air conditioner parts will wear down and eventually break or fail. This is to be expected from units that are 10+ years old.

    I am not your typical homeowner as Nic can testify, I'm extremely anal and perfectionism flows in my veins. Nic showed up and tried to ease my concerns , jokingly announcing he was completely the opposite of me, but not to worry, he would take care of me. Nic is... old school and extremely qualified and puts customers first. He got the ball rolling and kept me informed along the way. A complete pleasure to work with and totally reliable. The final day of my repair, West Coast sent Tannen and Jacob. I'm not certain if Nic had given them the fear of God speech but upon their arrival I spoke with them on the phone and kind of gave them both a 'brief' description of my expectations. When I arrived home and saw how well they had prepped to avoid and damages to flooring and walls I was blown away. They were both equally professional, courteous and obviously knew what they were doing. They were well-spoken and knowledgeable and took the time to explain everything in detail. I couldn't be more pleased and I would highly recommend West Coast.

    Highly recommend Ben and his team. They are the best at what they do!!! Very professional, efficient, and provide excellent customer service. We had Ben come out last year and give us a quote. Ben was the most knowledgeable, responsive, and honest of them all. We had 5 other quotes...s and the one from West Coast Air Conditioning could not be beat!! Unfortunately we were not able to get our HVAC system replaced at that time. Fast forward to March 2018 and we knew exactly who to call. Ben and his team did a fantastic job on the install. They went above and beyond and exceeded our expectations. Take our word for it, you definitely don't need to choose anyone else!! 10 Stars.
