Reasons to Schedule AC Repair Services

Posted on: August 9, 2018

Air Conditioning

When the air conditioning unit breaks down, the home or office can be unbearable, making an AC repair important. Having our company complete a repair and fix the issue will help get things back to normal. We offer quality services and bring the cold air back that you are used too. This makes it possible to:

  • Stay healthy
  • Avoid heat stroke
  • Get more work done
  • Be comfortable
  • Get a good night's sleep

Without our help, the air conditioning unit may not work again. Still, it is essential to know what to expect when you give us a call. This will prepare you for the process ahead.

Calling an AC repair company

Giving us a call is the first step to take. Let us know what is happening with the unit. Then, set a time for us to come out and take a look.

The appointment

When the technician enters and looks at the unit, they will check some possible issues. The areas that they pay the most attention to are:

  • Electrical components
  • Refrigerant
  • Condenser
  • Drain
  • Cleanliness
  • Obstructions
  • Ductwork

After doing a thorough investigation of the unit, the technician should have a clear idea of what is wrong with the unit. They will provide the AC repair necessary to have the unit back up and running. Technicians bring large vans that are marked with their company's logo. These vans hold the tools and parts needed to make the necessary repairs on units. However, special order items may take up to a day or two to be delivered.

How long will the process take?

Most of the time, the repair trip is a one-time visit. We can fix the unit while the technicians are there that day and not have to come back. This is known as a primary repair. This visit can take anywhere from 15 minutes to four or five hours, depending on the replacement that is required. For more extended or more extensive repairs where the technician has to come back, it can take up to 72 hours.

The time of the year may also play a factor in how long wait times are. Summer months tend to have higher wait times than fall, spring or winter months. It is important to check your air conditioning unit before summer to make sure it is in the best working condition.

The cost of AC repair services

The costs associated with AC repair vary. Depending on the problem with the unit and other factors, the price can fluctuate. We will provide a quote for the work ahead of time. Our technicians will let the homeowner know what the issue is, let them know the price expected and then the homeowner can then decide if this is something they want to move forward with having completed.

Staying cool is important

Everyone can benefit from living and working in a relaxed environment. Still, some are more likely to become ill if it is too hot indoors. Senior citizens and very small children are at risk when the temperatures soar, and they do not have a cool place to stay. This makes it vital to call us immediately if the AC goes out and seniors or young children are in the home. Even if they are not, it is still wise to call us quickly so that we can fix the problem and you can become cool again.
