Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if my AC has quit cooling?

When your air conditioner is not working properly, the first thing to do is to turn your system off — the right way. Heating and air conditioning units do not fix themselves and continuing to operate a failing system can lead to more expensive repairs or may require the installation of a replacement unit. You can visit the Northside emergency AC repair page to view our helpful how-to videos for AC Trouble Shooting, AC Filter Replacement and How to Clean Your AC Drain Line.

Should rooms feel cooler in certain areas?

It depends. For example, an un-insulated sunroom with lots of glass may have been designed to feel warm and cozy. However, you shouldn’t notice a temperature difference moving from one interior room to the next. If you do, your unit may need servicing, there may be a leak in the ductwork, your system could be incorrectly sized, or something could be blocking normal airflow. Our technicians can perform “whole house testing” using the latest technologies to pinpoint your specific problem.

Do you offer a routine maintenance agreement?

Yes! It is designed to provide timely (two precision tune-ups per year) maintenance services to protect you from unexpected HVAC system failures. The agreement entitles you to priority scheduling, 15% discount on parts and labor, no overtime rates or service fees and the option to apply costs toward new equipment installation.

What caused my energy bill to suddenly double?

Although your heating and air conditioning system is not the only user of electricity, it does use its fair share (especially during hot summer months). That said a major increase in your monthly utility bill could be caused by a compressor repeatedly turning on-and-off. This is called “short cycling”, which can waste electricity and lead to very costly repairs if left unattended.

Can an air conditioner be the cause of my family’s cold?

Colds are caused by viral infections to the upper respiratory system. But, dirty air filters in your air handler, system leaks or filthy ducts can increase the number of pollutants emitted and reduce the quality of the air in your home. These “bad air” conditions can lead to an increase in allergy symptoms or irritation to the respiratory system, especially for asthma sufferers, young children and elderly family members.

Why should I call a professional to clean my ducts?

By law, your HVAC system can only be serviced by a licensed North Jacksonville AC repair company. Our technicians are expertly trained to diagnose the cause of dirty ducts, remediate the problem and leave your ducts nearly as clean as the day they were installed. If dirt has accumulated on or in front of your unit’s registers, it’s time to schedule a service call to avoid future repairs.

Are your Northside AC technicians licensed and trained?

Yes. Donovan is a fully licensed and insured HVAC, electrical and plumbing company. We are staffed with expert AC repair techs, plumbers and electricians that are trianed and ready to help.
