AC Repair and Replacement

No Problem Heating and Cooling

As the weather gets warmer, you’ll be relying on your cooling system more and more. As your dependency on the machine increases, you need to make sure that its working properly. If you’ve been experiencing issues lately, or your AC doesn’t seem to be working as well as it used to, you may be in need of repairs before temperatures get too high. If your AC is beyond repair, old, or outdated, your whole system may need to be replaced. This can be stressful, but No Problem Heating and Cooling will help you every step of the way. If you’re experiencing any of the following problems, call us today:

Power Problems Mean AC Repair is Ahead

This is an obvious sign that something is up with your air conditioning system. If you adjust the thermostat, your AC should reach the designated temperature with ease. It should power on to keep you and your family cool and safe during the warmer months. Your cooling system needs to be able to keep up with the rising temperatures outside, so it if doesn’t turn on at all or if it switches often, you should look into a replacement.

Your Unit Blows Warm Air

An AC should always be blowing cool air. If it’s blowing out warm air, then it’s clear that you have a problem. You may be low on refrigerant, in which case it can simply be refilled to have your system back up and running ASAP. If you have a leak, repairs can get a little trickier. A refrigerant leak may be harder to fix but should still be addressed immediately. Repair may be possible, but if you’ve already spent money on repairs in the past, replacement may be in your best interest.

Insufficient Cooling Ability

Your air conditioning system should be able to cool your entire home or a designated area. If some rooms are much cooler than others, it’s a sign that your AC can’t handle cooling your entire house. A professional inspection will help to determine the cause of the problem and provide you with the AC repair you need.

Weird Noises

There’s no reason why your AC should be making weird or loud sounds. If you start to hear any, call No Problem for AC repair service. It could mean that a piece has become detached in your system, or that foreign debris has found its way inside. It could also be a sign of a bigger problem such as  motor failure. Depending on the extent of the repairs, you may want to invest in a new AC.

How No Problem Can Help

Our highly trained and certified technicians will be able to asses your cooling system and locate any problems or areas of concern. Once we make repairs, or you decide to upgrade your home with a replacement, you’ll have:

  • Smaller carbon footprint
  • Quieter operation
  • Increased home value
  • Reduced energy bills
  • Better temperature control
  • Increased home comfort

For all of your air conditioning needs, call No Problem today!

6 Benefits of an AC Tune-Up in Chesterfield

6 Benefits of an AC Tune-Up in Chesterfield

  • Cooling
AC Tune-Up in Chesterfield by No Problem

As spring turns to summer, Chesterfield homeowners will be swapping out their heaters for air conditioning. But is it ready to tackle the summer heat? The people at No Problem know that it’s a good idea to give your AC a tune-up before the warm weather moves in. That way, you’ll be able to rest easy knowing your AC will survive the summer heat. Here are six reasons you should get an AC tune-up in Chesterfield before the summer arrives. 

Benefits of an Early AC Tune-Up in Chesterfield:


Lower electricity bills.

Summers are hot- there’s no way around it. It’s likely that you’ll want to be running your AC most days, but that can create a steep increase in electrical bills. A system with clogged filters and failing parts will need to work harder to do the same work. By tuning up your AC now, you’re increasing its efficiency and lowering your utility bills.


More comfort.

What would you call an AC that can’t keep you cool? A bad one. Summers can be tough even for modern systems. If you want to keep a consistently cool, you’ll want our professionals at No Problem to make sure your AC is running at top performance.


Fewer breakdowns.

If you use your AC system this summer, are you certain that it won’t fail to start up? Do you know for sure that it’ll run smoothly all season? If you’re not sure, give us a call! Our tune-ups come with a complete inspection that can identify problems before they cause a breakdown.


Cheaper repair bills.

In the event that your AC winds up needing repairs, they’ll likely be cheaper if you’ve gotten maintenance beforehand. The reason for that is because our maintenance addresses the more costly problems (like air flow issues and broken parts) during our inspections.


Extended AC lifespan.

If you want your AC system to stay operational for a long time, you’ll want to give it regular maintenance. By routinely checking on your AC and preventing breakdowns, we can help extend your AC’s lifespan by years. Without regular maintenance, the average AC only lasts a few years.


Better air quality.

During the months where you never use your AC, various bits of dust and grime build up in it. When you turn it on, all that nasty junk is going to go into the air, which can hurt your air quality and aggravate those summer allergies. When you call No Problem to give your AC a tune-up, we’ll clean it out, ensuring that your home’s air stays fresh.


Why should I choose No Problem for my cooling needs?


No Problem Heating and Cooling has been helping Missouri homeowners with their heating and cooling systems since 1994. Scheduling an AC tune-up with us is a great way to keep you AC working at its best. Our highly-trained professionals will look over every part of your AC to make sure it’ll last the year. In addition, we also offer excellent service guarantees, warranties on all parts and services, and seasonal rebates.

How to Shut Down Your AC for the Winter

How to Shut Down Your AC for the Winter

  • Cooling
AC shut down winter in Missouri by No Problem

October is here and we’ve gotten our furnaces ready for the incoming winter weather. But how much have you done for your air conditioner? Although you won’t be using it at all, your AC has a condenser outside that needs to be shut down before winter arrives. If you don’t give it the protection it needs, it’ll be heavily damaged and might not work when you try to use it next summer.  Ensure you’ll have a cool summer by following our step-by-step guide to protecting your AC.

Here’s how you shut down your AC for the winter:


Ensure both units are repaired

Your AC has an indoor unit and an outdoor condenser, and both should be in good condition. If you can tell one or both of them need work, give us a call to fix them up. You shouldn’t leave any issues to fester over the winter, or they can cause more serious damage down the line.


Disconnect the condenser’s power

One of the most important parts of shutting down your AC is ensuring the condenser isn’t getting any power. Even if it’s connected but turned off, a warm spell could cause it to turn on automatically. This could cause it to take damage as it sucks in ice and snow. To disconnect it, you need to shut off the air conditioner’s breaker switch, which is usually found on the side of the house or under a flip-up switch near the condenser. Keep in mind that this switch has to be turned back on next time you want to use the AC. If your AC doesn’t turn on the next time you use it, that switch may be the reason.


Clean up the condenser

With the power now disconnected, you should clean up the condenser and the area around it. You should sweep the area with a broom and clear away any debris on or around the condenser. Next, use a low-pressure spray from your hose to wash off the outside cabinet. While it dries, double-check the condenser for damage. It’s good to also see if the filter needs replacing or the seals need to be tightened by professionals.


Cover the condenser

When it dries, all that remains is to cover the condenser with a water-proof cover and tightly secure it with bungee ropes. Everything you need for that can be purchased at a local hardware store. If you have a water-proof tarp, that can work as well assuming it completely covers the condenser.

R22 Refrigerant: Replace it Soon!

R22 Refrigerant: Replace it Soon!

  • Cooling
R22 Refrigerant in Missouri by No Problem

In your home, do you have an older AC, such as from before 2010? If so, then we have some important information for you. Refrigerant is a liquid inside your AC that moves between various parts to move heat, cooling your home. Chlorodifluoromethane, better known as R22 refrigerant or Freon, is one of the more popular kinds of refrigerant in the country. However, in about four months, that’s going to change.

A history of R22 refrigerant, past, and future

R22 refrigerant first saw usage when it was first created in the 1950s. It’s particularly popular for its usage in residential and commercial heating and cooling. However, in the 1970s, people discovered that R22 and similar refrigerants cause major damage to the ozone layer. As a result, the EPA and various global organizations created the Montreal Protocol, a plan to phase out ozone-damaging refrigerants. Starting in 2004, we’ve been phasing out the usage of R22 and similar gasses. One of these deadlines came in at the start of 2010. Since then, there are no manufacturers that produce AC units that use R22. The final deadline comes in at the start of 2020. When that comes around, no one will be producing R22 anymore, except for recovered and recycled R22.

What does this mean for those who use AC units with R22? Simply put, you’ll be paying a lot more to keep your old AC working. Given that older AC units already tend to need more service, your more frequent AC service calls will cost a lot more. Also, there are strict regulations on recovering and recycling R22, and only EPA-certified technicians can buy what remains of the R22 supply. This all means that R22 and all repairs involving it will cost a lot more when New Year’s rolls around.

What should you do?

With R22 prices soon rising, your best bet is to get a new AC. At No Problem Heating and Cooling, we offer new, energy-efficient models that use R401a refrigerant, which is newer and more environmentally friendly than R22. It’s possible to retrofit older units to use R401a, but that can cost as much as a new model and is certain to void the warranty. There’s also the possibility that you wind up breaking your AC, requiring to you buy a new one.

But how do you know your AC uses R22? Odds are, if your AC was made before 2010, then it uses R22. If not, then it probably uses a different refrigerant. To be certain, you should check your AC unit’s manual or nameplate, which can usually be found on the outside condenser. If you can’t find them or are still unsure, check with the AC unit’s manufacturer or call us.

Do I Need AC Repair or Replacement?

Do I Need AC Repair or Replacement?

  • Cooling
AC repair or replacement in Missouri by No Problem

Problems with your AC never seem to happen at a convenient time. Oftentimes it seems they only break down when they’re working hard on a very hot day. Usually all you need to do is call No Problem to come fix it with a repair. However, the problem might actually be a sign that your AC is good and gone. But how do you tell the difference between some basic repairs and a complete breakdown? Read our guide to learn whether you need AC repair or replacement.

Do you need an AC repair or replacement? First, here are some signs it just needs repairing:


Increased energy bills

Have you noticed you’re paying more for your bills than you normally do? That might be a sign your AC is becoming less efficient. As your AC gets worn down, it takes more effort on its part to get the same results. This increased effort can also reduce your AC’s overall lifespan, so it’s a good idea to get it checked out.


Strange, loud noises

For the most part, ACs are very quiet when they run. Because of this, if you hear any loud scraping, rattling, or banging noises, you know there’s a problem. There are a few different things that could be causing the noise. There might be a part loose or broken, a component might need lubrication, or a belt might have slipped out of place. Whatever it is, it can be damaging and costly if not repaired. If your AC is being noisy, call us right away!



A leaky AC can be a sign of a serious repair job. If the AC is leaking water or has ice inside it, that’s just a problem with a drain tube. The water can cause some mold and mildew, but it could be worse. What you really have to worry about is your AC having a refrigerant leak. Not only is Freon poisonous, but the leak is a serious AC problem. Whatever problem you have, call one of our technicians ASAP.


Warm air

Obviously, you bought an AC to cool your house, not sit around looking pretty. If it’s not keeping the house comfortable during hot weather, it’s time to give it an examination.


Low airflow

A similar issue to the air being hot is the airflow not being strong enough. It might be an issue with the AC’s compressor or possibly the ducts themselves. There’s definitely some uncertainty in this issue, so it’s a good idea to call a professional to diagnose the issue.


Strange odors

If the air in your home is starting to smell strange, there might be trouble. If your AC is poorly maintained, mold might be growing on the coil inside the unit. When your AC is operating, it’ll spread that mold through the air. That musty smell could be a sign of mold in either the unit or the duct work. Alternatively, the wire insulation inside your AC might be burnt out. Either way, it’s worth calling in a professional to fix the issue.


Thermostat not working

Your thermostat acts as the command center for your AC. Its job is to tell the AC how much cool air to generate and constantly take measurements to make sure its working right. When the AC won’t turn on or won’t stay on for long, the thermostat might have a problem. You’ll need a trained technician to look at the thermostat, as they have plenty of complex electrical components.


Next, here are some signs you should schedule a replacement:


The AC reached retirement age

How long have you owned your current AC? According to the National Association of Home Builders, a well-maintained AC unit should last anywhere from 10 to 15 years. If your AC has reached this point and isn’t working like it used to, it might be time to retire it. It may seem like a major cost, but don’t worry! You can use this opportunity to purchase a modern unit that’s more energy efficient.


The AC has a refrigerant leak

A refrigerant leak is a serious problem with your AC. The leaking coolant can pose a health risk to your family and the water leakage can damage your home. It’s possible to fix serious leaks by getting a new coil, but it might be a sign you should get a new AC.


A repair would cost too much

Sometimes replacement parts and repairs for your AC don’t justify their high costs. It gets more unappealing when you’re talking about a unit with an expired warranty. If this is the case, you should pick up a new unit and get a new warranty.


Your AC is making strange noises

Is your AC operating louder than it normally does? AC units are supposed to run quietly, so any grinding, banging, or rattling noises are a major concern. These noises can represent something like a slipped belt or broken motor bearings. If these issues aren’t fixed quickly, you’ll have a costly repair or replacement on your hands.


The AC air isn’t cold

If you turn on the AC and cool air doesn’t come out within a few minutes, there’s a problem. A wide variety of issues can cause this problem, like low Freon levels or a broken compressor. Whatever the case may be, it’s an obvious sign that your AC has an issue.


Your AC needs frequent repairs

You may want to keep an AC operational for a while through repeated repairs. However, doing this may eventually lead you to spend more than you would from getting a replacement. This is more likely if your warranty has expired and isn’t helping with repair costs. If the repair costs keep adding up, it may be time to install a new unit.

Stay Cool With These Summer Savings!

Stay Cool With These Summer Savings!

  • Cooling
summer savings with No Problem in Missouri

When the summer heat rolls in, you’ll likely want to stay cool. This means you’ll be using your AC a lot to keep your house comfortable. However, keeping your AC on all summer will generate some hefty electricity bills. There are plenty of things you can do, big and small, to get some AC savings in Texas this summer. Let the experts at No Problem Heating and Cooling give you some advice on how to stay cool without breaking the bank.

Here are six tips on getting some summer savings:


Stay on top of your AC’s maintenance

When was the last time you gave your AC maintenance? If the answer isn’t “this spring,” you should call us to give it an inspection. Getting your AC an inspection can do a lot to improve your energy savings. The AC won’t have to work as hard to cool, it’ll have less mechanical issues, and any grime built up in your AC will be cleaned out. It’s a simple bit of advice, but it’s very good advice at the same time.


Upgrade your thermostat

Programmable thermostats are a great way to help conserve your AC’s energy usage. A major feature in these thermostats is that they are programmable and can follow a schedule. This lets you automatically adjust the temperature around the household’s schedule, so the AC turns off when nobody’s home. Other useful features include the ability to keep a constant temperature and other high-tech features.


Keep your home sealed

In a battle between the Sun and your AC to determine the outside temperature, the Sun will win hands-down. Because of this, you want your home to stay well-insulated. A poorly insulated home will leak cool air and let in hot air more easily. At a basic level, you can fix this by caulking leaky windows and insulating doors leading outside. If you’re looking for a more comprehensive examination, call one of our experts to check your home.


Close the blinds

If you have windows letting in sunlight, that can make your home hotter than you want. During the hotter parts of the day, close your blinds to keep out the sun to keep the temperature down. In addition, this also helps keep cool air inside your house.


Be a fan of ceiling fans

You don’t always need the air conditioner to stay cool. The National Resource Defense Council (NRDC) estimates that a ceiling fan can make a room feel 10°F and uses 10% of an AC’s energy. There are also smart ceiling fans that can be set on a schedule, similarly to smart thermostats.


Get zone control AC

Zone control AC lets you choose individual areas to heat or cool. You probably have one or two parts of the house you don’t use very often. With zone control, you can cool certain parts of the house less or not at all. This lets you save money on unnecessary cooling.


What makes No Problem my best choice for keeping my home cool this summer?

No Problem Heating and Cooling has been working for over 25 years to keep Missouri residents comfortable. Our company is available for 24/7 emergency calls because we know that your AC doesn’t keep normal business hours. In addition, we’re proud to have recently won the prestigious 2017 “Best of St. Charles” award for the Heating Contractor Services category.

Why Should I Buy Central AC in Missouri?

Why Should I Buy Central AC in Missouri?

  • Cooling
AC leak? Call No Problem Heating and Cooling tor AC REpair

Summer may be a good while away, but it’s still a good idea to think about your needs for the summer. Even in New England, we’ve had record-breaking heat in recent years. Because of this, it might be time to make the jump to central AC. Let No Problem Heating and Cooling tell you why you’ll want to get central AC in Missouri.


Here are some reasons why you should get a central AC in Missouri.

  1. Better efficiency. Central air has made some big jumps in efficiency in recent years. If not managed properly, central air can waste a lot of money on unnecessary cooling. However, there are now all sorts of features like smart thermostats, zoning capabilities, and ductless central AC systems out now. These can all cut back on energy waste, especially when the system is running while no one’s home.
  2. Straightforward maintenance. Central air maintenance is fairly basic. All you need to do is give it an annual inspection from a professional. If you give it regular maintenance, the average central air system can last ten to fifteen years. After that, you’re likely better off getting a new system to avoid costly repairs and to make use of more efficient AC technology.
  3. House-wide cooling. One of the most obvious advantages to a central air system is the fact that it can cool your entire house with one unit. Some people may be able to have adequate cooling with one or two window units. However any more than that and the bills may become too much. If you plan to stay in your current home for several years, central air is likely your best option.
  4. Much quieter. Your average window air conditioner makes a great deal of noise when operating. This can be annoying during the day and make it hard to sleep at night. Central AC units are much quieter in comparison.
  5. More space inside. Instead of being stuck in your window, the central system for your central air is located by the side of your house. This can help you save on space indoors and keep your house looking modern. No more awkward-looking ACs sticking out of your window!


Why should I call No Problem Heating and Cooling to install central AC in Missouri?


Here at No Problem Heating and Cooling, we offer a proven track record of high-quality performance. We’ve won the 2013, 2014, and 2017 Best HVAC Contractor Services Award.

Heating and Cooling Options for Your Basement

Heating and Cooling Options for Your Basement

basement heating and cooling by No Problem Heating and Cooling in Missouri

You’re doing some renovations on your basement, and there’s one question left on your mind: how should I heat and cool it? There are plenty of options when it comes to controlling the temperature in your basement.


There are a few key questions you want to consider when looking at your options:


    1. How often will I use my basement? Some people treat their basements like it’s just another room in the house that will see plenty of use, especially when company comes over. Others simply use their basement as a place to store extra junk. Depending on how often you use it, heating and cooling systems may not be as much of a priority.
    2. Can I extend my current HVAC system, if I have one? If your home has an HVAC system, it might be possible to extend it to your basement. If a qualified HVAC technician says it’s possible, you can have the current ductwork extended into the basement. This is much easier to do if the basement is unfinished or in the early stages of remodeling.
    3. How will my local climate affect my decision? Depending on where you live, heating and/or cooling may be a much bigger concern than usual. If you live down in Florida, you’ll likely be more interested in cooling options. In colder areas, you’ll be more interested in something like baseboard heaters.
    4. How will the floor plan affect things? Odds are you already have some heating, cooling, or plumbing components in your basement. When designing your basement, you’ll want this equipment closed off for functional and aesthetic reasons. However, you don’t want them closed off entirely, as you’ll likely need to do future maintenance. A good idea is to have a ventilated utility or mechanical room to conceal the equipment.



Once you’ve considered all of your options, you should have a good idea of what you’re looking for. If you still aren’t sure what you need, you can always ask one of our professionals for their opinion.


Why is No Problem Heating and Cooling the one to trust with heating or cooling my basement?
