Air Conditioning Tune-Ups
Before summer begins, it is important for you to schedule an AC tune-up with one of our technicians. Think of it like taking your car to the mechanic before a long road trip–you want to make sure everything is functioning properly so it doesn’t leave you on the side of the road. The same premise can be applied to your AC, but instead of it leaving you on the side of the road, it will leave you in the hot summer sun. Our tune-up process covers every aspect of your air conditioner and will spot potential problems before they cause a major issue.
Repairing a potential problem may seem silly, but taking care of it beforehand will ensure that it doesn’t become worse and cause more damage.
Our inspections and tune-ups cover a wide range of issues including the evaporator coils, refrigerant lines, condenser, compressor, the blower motor, thermostat calibration, and ensuring there are no blocked air ducts.
When to Call for Repairs
Most homeowners will know if something isn’t right with their air conditioning system. Unfortunately, many of them will ignore that feeling in hopes that the issue will go away on its own. AC problems generally won’t resolve themselves and need the help of a professional. Here are a few of the signs that are indicative of needing an AC repairman:
- Rising energy bills – ever-increasing energy bills means that your AC is not running efficiently. This could relate back to the filter, air ducts, or could have something to do with an electrical component.
- Not blowing cool – the point of an air conditioning system is to blow cold air and if it’s not doing that, something is definitely wrong. There could be too little refrigerant, dirty evaporator coils, or an issue with your blower motor.
- Loud noises – banging or rattling shouldn’t be a sound that is heard from your AC. If it is, a piece could be loose. This loose piece could do further damage to your system.
- Puddles of water – leaks are never a good thing, but a puddle of water could be the melting ice from an evaporator coil–this means the coil needs to be cleaned or serviced.

AC Repairs FAQs
Air conditioner parts – Which parts break down if it’s not maintained?
Air conditioner parts break down over time. However, an improperly maintained central air conditioning system will put pressure on every part of that system. A dirty filter that hasn’t been replaced, fans that are not cleaned, leaking refrigerant, exposed wires in the electrical box, ice build up on coils. These put pressure on the capacitors, sensors that track heat levels and thermostat readings and generally weaken the unit so it does not run efficiently and any part can break down.Read More...
Why is my AC compressor so noisy?
Compressors can make banging or rattling sounds, hissing or clinking noises, humming and screeching. Your first action is to shut down the unit. Causes include loose parts, the motor coming loose, a refrigerant leak, faulty controls, low on oil, and pressure build-ups.
For all these problems you’re best to bring in ProSolutions Inc. to diagnose and fix the problem, including possible compressor replacement.Read More...
My furnace blower is not working! What should I do?
If your furnace blower is not working, there could be a couple of issues here, one more serious than the other. Firstly, it is important to understand how a furnace works. You can begin to understand this through a very simple principle. A furnace uses some type of fuel (i.e. electrical, oil, gas, etc) to heat a series of coils. What type of fuel your furnace uses for this combustion. This series of heated coils (called a heat exchanger) has a fan (called a blower motor) which blows your houses' air over them and into your air ducts where it is dispersed throughout your house. This simple process, regardless of what type of fuel you use, is how your furnace is able to blow warm air into your home.
If you're having any issues with your furnace blower not working. It can come down to the blower motor in the furnace may need replacing and that’s usually a job for the experts. A capacitor. If the capacitor is defective, the fan motor might be noisy, overheat, or not run at all. If the control board is defective, it might not send voltage to the blower motor. If the furnace is not getting power, check the furnace circuit breaker or fuse as this might also be an issue.
On the other hand, the unit may be clogged with dirt and dust and you may be able to fix that yourself but may likely need special attention to unclog the debris and dirt from the components.
In the end, there are several things that can lead to a furnace not blowing air. If you decide to try and repair an older unit and it requires more effort and costs incurred. It may just be more advantageous to replace it.

What is the difference between a boiler and a furnace?
In Edmonton, both boilers and furnaces are used to provide homes with heat. The difference between a boiler and a furnace is the way in which they heat a home.
A boiler takes water and heats it then circulates this hot water (or steam, in some cases) throughout the house in order to heat it. The hot water is circulated using pipes, radiators and/or radiant floor systems. Once the water has cooled, it is returned to the boiler to be heated and reused in a closed-loop system.
A furnace, on the other hand, heats and distributes air in order to heat a home. This hot air is distributed via ductwork and vents.Read More...
Why is my air conditioner leaking water under the furnace?
