Air Conditioning Maintenance Tips and Frequent Questions:
Q: How much does it cost to repair my home air conditioner?
A: Generally the minimum charge is $65. However, as a visitor to our website, we will extend to you our commercial service call rate of $52.50. Additionally, we will waive the service call/diagnostic fee if you pay for the parts and labor to have your air conditioner repair performed and keep us working hard.
Q: How often should I change or clean my air filter?
A: We advise checking your vent filters monthly and cleaning or replacing as needed at least every three months. Note: Some air conditioners may need to be cleaned or replaced more frequently.
Q: How cold should the air coming from my air registers be?
A: Generally the air temperature coming out of your vents should be around 20 to 25 degrees cooler than temperature inside your home.
Q: My air conditioning fan seems to be making a lot of noise. Should I keep running my air conditioning system?
A: The question is how long do you want to be without air conditioning? If your fans are making excessive noise, they may need to be lubricated or replaced. The longer you wait to have them looked at, the more likely they will burn up and leave you stuck in the heat.
Tip: Ground-mounted air conditioning units need to be kept clear of leaves and debris. Do not place items on top of or next to your air conditioning units as it can prevent the unit from drawing and extracting air through the air conditioner’s condenser.
