AC Repair FAQs
I need my AC back on quickly – how long will AC repair take?
It depends on the nature of your problem. In most cases, we’ll have the tools and components at hand to get your AC running again in no time at all, mere hours at most—but more serious cases, or in homes where the unit or ducts aren’t readily accessible, repairs may take longer.
What will it cost to repair my AC?
As with the time involved, the cost of air conditioner repair can vary significantly depending on what exactly is wrong, the value of any components which need to be replaced, how labor-intensive accessing your unit and doing repairs will be, etc. Older units tend can have more expensive repairs, as their components become legacy parts not in regular production.
Should I just replace my AC instead of repairing it?
It depends on a number of factors, not the least of which is how old your air conditioner is. They tend to last 15-20 years, but it’s often a good idea to go ahead and upgrade if you need serious repairs and it’s ten or more years old. The cost of repairs plus the savings you’ll get from new technology shift the balance in favor of replacement. You might also want to replace if you’re looking for more power from your unit, have a system that keeps requiring repairs, etc.
Will AC repairs fix high energy bills?
It depends on why exactly your energy bills are so high. This can be a warning sign of a problem with your air conditioner, it can be a natural consequence of using older technology, it can be due to leaky or blocked ducts, it can be a thermostat problem, or it can be completely independent of your HVAC system: a problem of insulation, weatherproofing, etc. Our team at Aux Home Services will know more once we take a look.
What can I do to fix my AC on my own?
There are a few minor problems that you can remedy on your own; check the electrical breaker in your panel to make sure it hasn’t flipped, make sure the filter is clean, and leave it alone for a while if it’s frozen over, check for obstructions in your ducts, etc. Most problems are best left to the professionals, though.
If my AC freezes, does it need repairs?
In most cases, a freezing air conditioner indicates some sort of underlying problem you’ll want to fix, even if you can resolve it by turning the unit off and leaving alone until it thaws out and dries. This can be a problem you can fix, like a drainage line that needs a slight adjustment or a filter that needs to be cleaned for airflow, but you’ll need a pro to take a look to be sure.
