Types of Home Air Conditioners.
Portable and RV Air Con.
Portable units are cheap, simple and convenient. All the components are housed in a single unit and the warm air exhaust is usually vented via a flexible hose through a window. Recreational Vehicle (RV) air conditioners fit into the roof and vent directly into the atmosphere and help make your vacation as perfect as you hoped
The acronym stands for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning. For a holistic approach to local area environmental control HVAC is the ideal choice. Consider it one system, with your heating, cooling and ventilation requirements merged into a single device. The whole system manages the air quality and temperature of each room from a separate control point. The ventilation function handles criteria like humidity, oxygen levels, and airborne particle distribution. For total climate management accept no substitute. Like most advanced technologies, the more complexity you introduce, the more vulnerabilities occur. Don’t worry; we’re here to help. West Coast Chief Repair’s technicians keep their knowledge on the cutting edge.
Split Central Systems.
A split air conditioning system divides its functions into an indoor unit and an outdoor unit. You’ll find the inside unit in an unfinished space like the attic, and the other mounted on a concrete pad outside or the roof. The indoor unit houses a key component called an evaporator coil. The outdoor unit houses the two other main components of an AC system: a compressor and a condenser coil. Some split systems only have a cooling function, while others (categorized as HVAC systems) also have a heating function provided by a heat pump or furnace. The best benefit of a split system is efficiency. When in good operating order, these systems waste little energy and help keep your cooling costs low.
A broad range of symptoms may point toward significant problems in a split air conditioning system. Common examples of these symptoms include;
- Unanticipated jumps in your summertime electricity costs
- Failure to reach the temperature set at your thermostat.
- Longer on/off cycles than normal.
- Rapid on/off cycling.
- Visible refrigerant leaks.
- Unusual sounds (e.g., grinding noises or squeaks) during operation. Ice formation on the lines that run between your indoor and outdoor units.
- Lack of airflow from the AC registers inside your home.
- Fan on your outside unit that doesn’t turn when your air conditioner is on.
This type has a central unit that houses its compressor, condenser coil, and evaporator coil instead of separating them like in a split system. As a rule, packaged air conditioners sit outside your home, either on your roof or a concrete pad. Less efficient than a split system but a space saver and costs less to fit. Indications of problems in your packaged unit are essentially the same as those found in split systems.
Wall units don’t supply cool air to all the rooms in your home. Instead, they only cool the air in a single room or area. Wall ACs mount to your wall inside a device called a chassis sleeve. This through-the-wall mounting makes this method more efficient than window-mounted AC systems. They provide superior local cooling but can cost more to fit.
Like their wall mounted counterparts, window air conditioners cool single rooms or portions of your house. Modern versions of these units may rival the energy efficiency of a wall-mounted AC. You can use one or more window air conditioners in conjunction with wall units if your home lacks the ducting system required for a central AC.
Diagnosing Problems and Making Repairs.
Air conditioners are complex devices, whether you have an AC split system, HVAC split system, wall mounted or any permutation. Any problem that occurs may have several underlying causes. For example, an AC system that doesn’t deliver cold air to your sidewall, floor or ceiling registers may have underlying issues that include:
- Faulty thermostat.
- Damaged control board.
- Faulty wiring.
- Damaged condensate pump.
If your AC runs but doesn’t sufficiently cool your home, possible culprits are:
- Low refrigerant levels.
Proper diagnosis of the problems you experience is a crucial step in air conditioner repair. If a technician misdiagnoses these problems, you can spend large amounts of money on work that doesn’t restore your AC’s normal functionality. Even more so, the interior of your home will remain uncomfortable, or even uninhabitable during unbearable heat waves.

The experts at West Coast Chief Repair have been fixing home air conditioners in the local area for almost 25 years.

We encounter systems that would be improved by upgrade or replacement on a regular basis. We also specialize in the removal of your old system and installation of a new one. Many are hesitant to replace an AC unit because of the initial investment. We will give you a thorough break-even analysis that will demonstrate exactly how your new unit will save you money over the long term. There have been many advances in climate control technology in the new millennium. An upgrade may be able to save you more money than you think.
Should You Replace Your A/C Unit?
In most cases, we recommend a repair over full replacement. Not because it gathers more business for repair shops, but because it makes financial sense for you. Air conditioning units are not cheap. The majority of the time, the total repair cost (including labor) is much less than the cost of buying and installing a whole new unit. A complete home AC fix can often take a few hours. West Coast Chief Repair has the tools, parts, and professionals ready to service all models and types.
Replacement may be advisable to increase efficiency or if the unit is beyond repair. Our knowledgeable local technicians can help you identify issues with your unit and assist you in your decision. If you do purchase a new unit, we offer installation services that ensure proper operation and function. A full home evaluation can help you choose the best unit for your needs. We test energy costs, quality, and even the architecture of your home during one of our comprehensive evaluations.

“West Coast Chief Repair did a great job with my AC. Both AC units went belly up. The home warranty company sent 2 other groups, which were not capable of doing leak tests. Complete waste of time. Then they hired West Coast Chief Repair. I have to say they repaired both AC units and now everything is going well. They even did some preventative fixes for the future so that my AC units wouldn’t get damaged later. Dean was my guy and he was great! Thanks”
