What Qualifies as an Air Conditioning Repair Emergency?

Air Conditioner MaintenanceThere are some common problems that homeowners experience with their HVAC systems. Here are a few of them:

Inadequate maintenance. The #1 reason that your system may need repairing? Not properly maintaining it! As with virtually all other major home appliances, regular maintenance and cleaning is key. If you want your ducted air conditioning system to run smoothly, it’s important to ensure that you clean your system’s coils, change the air filters, and do everything else that your manual has listed.

Refrigerant leaks. If your refrigerant is simply low, that’s not necessarily an indicator that there’s a problem. But, if your refrigerant is leaking, that’s another issue entirely! Refrigerant leaks are not only harmful for your A/C system, they’re also harmful for the environment, as well.

Improper installation. If your ducted air conditioner wasn’t installed properly, there will likely be a host of problems to deal with down the road. Making sure that you hire the right HVAC technician for the job will help prevent future issues.

So, is your HVAC system on the fritz? If so, don’t wait to fix the problem! If your air conditioning isn’t functioning properly, this can directly contribute to a host of issues. These issues may include higher heating bills, poor indoor air quality, and even an increased risk for carbon monoxide poisoning.

When it comes to determining specific repair costs for your AC system, this does vary. A professional contractor will need to diagnose the problem, and provide you with a customized cost estimate. Some factors that determine repair costs include: the extent of the issue, whether your system needs to be replaced, the cost of materials needed to solve the issue, and the size of your heating system. Your AC system may even need to be replaced.
