undefinedOutside Air Conditioner Unit Fan Not Working in Reading, PA

A customer called to report that the fan on his outside air conditioning unit was not working. He said the problem sounded like a bearing might be going bad because he heard a rattling noise. We came to his home, replaced the fan motor, and the system was once again working properly.

Sometimes when this problem happens, the cause could be something relatively simple as a run capacitor, which helps supply power to the motor. However, a bearing problem usually means that the motor needs to be replaced. A technician will normally switch out the capacitor as well as the motor just to make sure the motor gets the proper power supply.

Water Heater Replacement in Allentown, PA

We received a call from a man who wanted to have his water heater replaced. He was unable to take a hot shower, and when he checked the unit he noticed water leaking from the bottom of the tank. We were able to replace the unit with a new model and his hot water was once again flowing properly.

This type of job is one that can be performed by a do-it-yourselfer as long as you have the proper tools to do so. However, it is very important that you have someone to help. A water heater is a very heavy, bulky piece of equipment, and if you don’t have someone to assist you could easily be hurt. Plus, an Essig technician can install your new water heater in a fraction of the time.

Air Conditioner Runs but Doesn’t Cool in Reading, PA

This customer reported that her cooling system seemed to be running but her home wasn’t getting cool enough. We checked her system and found that the outside unit was blocked by debris and her air filter needed to be replaced. Once we cleared the unit and replaced the filter, the system worked as normal.

While these sound like minor considerations, you’d be surprised how many people have this sort of problem. It’s easy to take your air conditioner for granted until you have a problem, but there are a few simple steps you can take to try to avoid issues. You should always keep your outdoor unit free of weeds and other potential blockages and change your air filter every couple of months.
