Rated 4.9 out of 854 reviews

Chud has provided air conditioning, heating, water heater, air quality and duct cleaning services to the residents of Willow Grove, PA and the surrounding areas since 1970! We're committed to providing first class air conditioning service to all of our clients.

How much does it cost to repair an AC unit near Willow Grove?

The cost of repair can vary widely, with the typical cost of air conditioning repair ranging between $200 and $400. The average homeowner spends approximately $350 on unclogging the filter, restarting the system and cleaning the unit. A homeowner may expect to pay $175 for maintenance service, which includes a filter change. You could expect to pay approximately $500 for drain cleaning and refrigerant inspection at the higher end of the repair service. 

It’s tempting to DIY some repairs to try to save money, but without proper HVAC training, you could be setting yourself up for an even bigger repair bill. Instead, make sure to have a professional repair your AC unit.

What are the signs of a bad HVAC capacitor?

Some air conditioning problems may be solved by homeowners with a simple do-it-yourself fix or repair. When it comes to a failing AC capacitor, though, your home's HVAC system will require expert assistance

Here are some of the most typical signs of a faulty AC capacitor.

  1. One of the first symptoms of a problem is an air conditioner that does not pump cold air. Try turning your system off and on again, and if the problem persists, you'll need to get expert assistance.
  2. Is the cost of your electricity gradually rising? A defective AC capacitor might be the source of the problem. The more energy your air conditioning system needs to use to perform its function, the harder it has to work.
  3. When you switch on your air conditioner, pay attention to how it sounds. If your air conditioner makes a buzzing noise or is slow to start, your capacitor may be deteriorating.

Does your air conditioner take a long time to start up once you turn it on? This is also an indication of a faulty or deteriorating AC capacitor.

How long should a HVAC system last near Willow Grove?

Most HVAC systems will last 15 to 25 years on average, although this estimate can vary greatly depending on the kind of system and other contributing elements. The key to making your HVAC system last is regular HVAC maintenance. With regular tune-ups, you can extend the life of your system by up to 50%.

We're the AC experts. But don't take our word for it. Check out our reviews and find out why your neighbors consider us to be their nearby Willow Grove, PA heating and air company that specializes in air quality and duct cleaning.

Completed FWI preseason maintenance on Goodman ac only attic system. Cleared drains, verified proper charge via delta T, replaced the 20x23x1 air filter with a new stock filter. Advised homeowner where the filter access is. It is located in the attic. The filter is good for approximately 90 days. Verified the REME HALO air purifier is functioning properly. Advised homeowner that “cell/bulb” for device should be replaced in about 2 years from now. Verified proper amperage on compressor and fan motor. System is in good condition. Continued maintenance will keep the labor warranty valid. Goodman M#GSX160481FH, S#2012302379. (20x23x1 pleated filter).

Performed preventative maintenance for air conditioning system. Inspected all the electrical components. Replaced customers supplied air filter (16x20x1). Confirmed proper high and low voltages. Tested the temperature split between the supply and return. System is operating at a 20° differential on a 74° day. Tested the amp draw for the blower, compressor and fan motor. All were operating within the manufacturer specs (blower- 3.6A, compressor 6.2A and fan motor- .8A). Made sure drain pipe was clear and pump was working as it should. Inspected drain pan for any blockages. Inspected the outdoor and indoor coil for air restrictions. The condenser is stuffed up with a good amount of debris. Recommend condenser coil cleaning to improve the efficiency and airflow. High dirt buildup shortens the lifespan of the system especially the compressor putting a lot of strain on the unit.

Removed gravity drain which included a “P” trap on an upflow gas furnace and coil and properly installed a new 3/4” PVC drain and condensate pump. Ran safety switch for pump. Applied monies paid to Chud from previous visits to this repair. Outdoor unit is extremely aged and outdated, however system is functional at this time. Drain is secure and properly pitched. Please note this system is 20 years old and any major failures will result in us quoting to upgrade the system. 3 ton outdoor with 80% AFUE 90K BTU indoor upflow furnace. Standard swap out. Existing bypass humidifier is also pitched on a 45 degree angle and will leak if it is functional. Homeowner was not sure if it actually works.

This is a return visit due to water all over the basement floor after we had replaced the drain. Upon inspection I found the drain pitching back to the evaporator drain pan causing it to overflow onto the floor. Adjusted the drain pitch so that the water flows outward to the utility sink. After adjustments the drain worked properly and I noticed no new water flowing onto the floor. No charge due to return visit after a charged repair. System is operating properly at this time.

Condensate is now draining properly. Temperature split is at 20°. This unit has the proper refrigerant. Ran amp draw on compressor and condenser fan motor, Both of these readings are within the amperage rating for this unit. System is operating properly at this time and is ready for the season.

Returned to complete the service for the Daikin 2 zone mini split system. Found the system low on charge like it was last year. System holds a max of 3lbs 410A refrigerant. Customer wanted to just add refrigerant today since it lasted all season last year. If system runs low again this season customer said she will then want to investigate the leak. System was low by a pound. Final pressures were 130/328. System had a 20° split at both indoor wall units. Service fee was charged when Paul came out and PM was done 5/4/22. Collecting for refrigerant added today. Mini split system is operating properly at this time.

Performed preventative maintenance for air conditioning system. Replaced the standard air filter (16x25x1). Inspected all the electrical components. Confirmed proper high and low voltages. Tested the temperature split between the supply and return. System is operating at a 20° differential on a 72° day. Inspected the drain piping and condensate pump. Drain is clear at this time and pump is working as it should. Tested the amp draw for the blower, compressor and fan motor. All are operating within the manufacturer specs. Inspected the evaporator and condenser coils. Both have some dirt but are not blocked up or restricted. System is operating properly at this time. Keep in mind this system is operating on the old refrigerant platform that is no longer being imported or manufactured. Any major issues in the future most likely will lead to system replacement.

On arrival coil was frozen. It thawed very quickly. Inspected the 2 ton Goodman air handler in the attic and found poor duct design. The unit has a 3’ long trunk line and all flex is bunched up together. A proper installation would require a 12’-15’ long trunk line with flex runs evenly spaced. It is also possible that the unit is undersized. There is no registers on the first floor. I checked the superheat and subcooling and everything appears normal from a mechanical standpoint. The problem with this particular issue is poor duct design, possibly not enough capacity on the outdoor unit, and no registers on the first floor. Will discuss this issue with the general manager and follow up with homeowner early next week.

Performed preventative maintenance for air conditioning system. Customer replaces the standard air filter (20x25x1). Inspected all the electrical components. Confirmed proper high and low voltages. Tested the amp draw for the blower, compressor and fan motor. All were operating within the manufacturer specs. Tested the temperature split between the supply and return. System is operating at a 20° differential on a 93° day. Inspected the drain piping and the condensate pump function. Drain is clear and pump is working as it should. Inspected the capacitor and contactor in the outdoor unit. Both seem to be original and pretty worn. Updating both of these components can prevent a middle of the season system failure. Recommended a couple preventative repair options. Mentioned them to the homeowner. She wants her husband to review them and will let us know. System is operating properly at this time.

Came out today for a Duncan system not cooling properly. Upon inspection I found that the ac system is extremely low on refrigerant. FB was out last year and charged the system with 3lbs of 410-a. The homeowner declined to add ez seal to the system . My recommendation is to charge the system and add an ez seal stick . We will then return to perform a leak investigation so Chud can locate the leak and give a proper estimate for repair. The system is only about 5 years old. I charged the system with 4lbs of 410-a refrigerant and added an ez seal stick. The refrigerant pressures are now 131/303. The condenser amp draws are 10.07 for the compressor and .64 for the fan. The system has a temperature split of 20. Chud will have to reach out to the homeowner and schedule a leak investigation date, roughly 3-4 weeks so the dye can properly run through the system. Maintenance can not be performed due to the system not operating properly.

No ac call for a ductless system that Chud has not serviced before. We have serviced (2) other split systems here but not this one. We began troubleshooting the unit. The tenant came home from work to let us in, however when we needed to go back inside to address the (2) indoor units not working the door had closed. The tenant had already went back to work via bicycle. The Landlord did not have keys to get in. Landlord was made aware and she said we can reschedule the call. See sold estimate for “electrical troubleshooting” which will need to be done when we come back.

Came out for no AC call. Unit was not conditioning the air , supply air and return air were the same temperature. Condenser was operating properly , the unit appeared to have a leak out of the shrader pin which an independent contractor has put a T valve on to stop the leaking. This is a 15 year+ Old R-22 unit with an extremely low refrigerant charge. Customer was informed of the status of his equipment and was recommended to upgrade to new equipment. Chud sent over photos and the customers info to our sales department and will be giving a quote on new equipment.

Survey/estimate for potential commercial duct cleaning. Identified specific register that was causing the “blow off” of debris. Upon closer inspection was able to determine that there is some type of microbial growth inside the air ducts. The Chud company will not perform any air duct cleaning services at this location until the debris are removed by a licensed remediation company. We are not confirming the type of microbial growth either. A licensed contractor may need to test the debris first in order to determine the proper procedure to remove such debris.
