AC Repair | Waiting Could Cost You

AC Repair | Many companies run “early-bird specials” in March and April.

Heating and cooling experts say central air-conditioning systems should be serviced annually to remove dirt, change filters and check the level of Freon, a refrigerant. The typical central air-conditioning system lasts 12 to 15 years, but regular maintenance can add three to four years to its life.

Even if you live in a climate that’s warm year round, service a system NOW to avoid repairs when it’s the hottest—and prices are at their highest.

With wall and window units, ask in advance about the price of service calls, labor and any parts. In some cases, it may be cheaper to replace the air conditioner altogether—especially for smaller window units.

When picking a servicer, there are a few things you should be aware of. First, ALWAYS ask for references and CHECK up on them. If it’s the first time you’re using a company, word of mouth could be your best friend. Read online reviews if you can’t find anyone you know that’s used the company before. Online reviews are great because most sites don’t allow the company to delete them. They also give way to insightful commentary about the company you’re considering, but don’t take a few bad reviews too seriously. Look at the overall thoughts of the business and ask exactly what you get for the quoted price.

A caveat: Be aware of the temperature when you get the service. Running an AC unit without a low-pressure cutoff switch when it’s colder than about 60 degrees might damage it
