Air Conditioning Repair Birmingham

If your air conditioning system is not providing you with the heating and cooling you need throughout the year either due to limited performance or simply isn’t functioning correctly even with regular maintenance, your AC will almost certainly require a repair. To get your air conditioning in Birmingham back up and running, look no further than MAC to provide all the callout support and advice you need for general repairs or to resolve emergency breakdown.

For domestic and commercial premises including schools, households, offices and more, MAC’s expert team can offer repair services for all types of air conditioning and climate control systems. MAC’s air conditioning engineers will always aim to repair your air con system same day, although sometimes specialist parts are needed depending on your AC system. That’s when the rest of the team step in to provide a quotation on the parts required, sourced directly from the manufacturer. Provided you’re happy to proceed, we will have the necessary components ordered and our engineer will return to complete your repair as soon as possible. 

The differences between air conditioning Services in Birmingham

Whilst yearly AC maintenance is highly recommended as it will significantly reduce the likelihood of your air conditioning having performance issues or experiencing faults in the long term, it is not quite the same as servicing or repairs. 

Maintenance is a pre-scheduled preventative measure to avoid the need for repairs as your air conditioning system will still be functioning correctly. 

Repair visits are when your AC is either not functioning properly or has stopped working completely and you need an engineer to attend to fix the issue. 

Servicing (or a callout) is an engineer visit you have requested but was not scheduled in advance and may involve both maintenance and repair depending on the reason for the request. 

It’s worth taking note that during planned preventative maintenance, the engineer on site may identify a fault which will require more extensive work or additional parts to resolve. In this situation a member of our expert team will be in touch to provide a quotation for the cost of the part(s) including a return visit from our engineer.

If you decide to proceed, the return visit would become a repair. Similarly, if the spare is no longer available due to the age of the air conditioning unit, you may be quoted for a replacement air conditioner installation instead.

The risks of not getting your air conditioning repaired

The Risks of not getting your Air Conditioning Repaired 

If your air conditioning isn’t functioning correctly or isn’t working at all, leaving it out of use or reducing how much you use it can still present a hazard until you seek a professional repair. These risks can include;

Potential fire hazard

Much like any other appliance an air conditioner will steadily accumulate dust, especially when it is left unused due to an existing fault. With a combination of disuse and a lack of maintenance, this dust can clog air filters and results in the internal running temperature of the air conditioner running higher than usual due to poor airflow and additional friction on the working components. This can not only cause overheating, it also will significantly increase the risk of a short circuit as the unit increases its demand for power due to the higher workload, resulting in old or loose wiring being exposed to the higher temperatures and significantly increasing the risk of a short circuit.

Water damage

Whilst it is perfectly normal for air conditioning to produce moisture during its cooling/heating process, these water droplets are directed outside as part of its drainage system, so you would not normally see any water produced by your air conditioner indoors. An occasional drip of water from an indoor air conditioning unit can indicate there may be an obstruction in its drainage system, which is easily diagnosed and resolved with regular maintenance before becoming a problem, although when left unattended it can become a more significant issue.

An air conditioning system that is rarely used either due to a known fault or intermittent functionality has a greater likelihood of experiencing a drainage issue where the gathered condensation is blocked by dirt and debris and cannot be expelled outside. This will force the water to exit through the indoor air conditioner’s air vents, which can result in a significant amount of water pooling indoors on or around the air conditioning unit whenever it is in use. 

Risks to Health

Dust and dirt build up due to a lack of maintenance and/or minimal use of your air conditioning system can also result in the perfect environment for both bacterial and mould growth. Condensation build up in an unmaintained drainage system can leave standing water to accumulate as it is not effectively being drained outside as normal. This will result in mould growth which not only smells unpleasant but this tainted water can also leak indoors from the air conditioner as mentioned above.

It can be a similar situation with the internal filters of the air conditioning system as well, since dust and allergens are left to accumulate and they will be expelled when the air conditioning is put back into operation, spreading both allergens and microbes throughout the indoor space, which can result in allergic reactions and respiratory illness. 

What to expect from a Professional Air Conditioning Repairs Across Birmingham

If you have a malfunctioning air conditioning system that requires repair, having it up and running again as soon as possible always takes precedence although it is also useful to also understand the basics of the repair process so you know what to expect when an air conditioning engineer arrives to assist you. MAC’s experienced service engineers are on call with a wealth of experience in handling both simple repairs and extensive service visits for more urgent and serious repair work, so you can expect one of their professional service visits to typically follow the steps below:  

 Inspection and Diagnosis of the Air Conditioning System

An MAC engineer will carry out a thorough inspection to isolate the issue, this can range from identifying electrical issues to faulty internal components that require specialist part replacement. 

Immediate Onsite Repair or Quotation of Specialist Parts

Depending on the engineer’s diagnosis, faulty components will be directly repaired or replaced where possible, such as repairing wiring connections or replacing a pump. Although sometimes specialist parts are required, which will require a quotation to be provided for approval before parts are ordered from the AC manufacturer and the engineer can return to complete your repair. 

 System Testing

Following repairs, the engineer will test your air conditioning system to ensure the unit is working correctly and confirm all issues have been resolved with further checks to rule out any additional problems. 

Maintenance Advice 

The engineer will provide tips and suggestions for maintaining your AC system to prevent future issues. This is especially crucial as air conditioning needs regular maintenance checks as they can highlight potential issues before they become significant problems. Regular checks also ensure the system is running at optimal performance, which will not only enhance air quality, but keep your running costs low too.

What if your air conditioner needs to be replaced and you need a new installation?

Whilst air conditioning that is regularly maintained can last upwards of 15 years, if your air conditioning has already been in use for this length of time or it lacks some of the features offered by the latest AC models produced by the likes of Mitsubishi Electric, Daikin or Toshiba, it may be worth considering a replacement system entirely.
