What to Expect During Your AC Repair Visit

As an owner of an air conditioning system at some point you are going to need an AC repair. HVAC systems, like other appliances, break down and have problems over time. We understand it is frustrating to deal with a broken air conditioner, especially on a day when you need it the most. Needing AC repair can cause a lot of stress as you wonder how much will it cost? Will I need AC replacement? How soon can I schedule an AC Repair appointment? The best way to help ensure minimal AC breakdowns is to schedule AC maintenance ideally in the spring before the cooling season begins. However, even with the most regular maintenance there could still come a point when your air conditioning system reaches its limit. AC repair is not something you want to attempt on your own, contact us LA Construction, Heating and Air when you need AC repair services. Do you know what to expect during an AC repair appointment?  In this article, we discuss a few things you should expect during your AC repair appointment to hopefully lessen your worries and so you are prepared when a repair technician arrives at your home.

Technicians Arrive Prepared

Our technicians will arrive with all necessary tools and common parts to repair your AC. Our technicians are trained and are well versed in diagnosing different issues and brands of equipment. They will also ensure your home will be kept clean during the AC repair appointment by wearing shoe covers.

Gather History

When our technician arrives he will ask what problems you have been experiencing with your AC. He will ask when the last time it was serviced or had AC maintenance completed, and what repairs have been completed in the past. These questions will help our technician begin their assessment to diagnose your AC issue.

Check The Thermostat

Next the technician will ask to check your thermostat. Many AC issues are caused by a malfunctioning thermostat or one that has been improperly set. They need to verify that it is not a simple thermostat issue, by checking batteries and confirming the thermostat is set to cool to see if that will cycle on the thermostat. They will always check thermostat first before proceeding on to the condenser.

Inspect the Condenser

Next the service technician will move onto the condenser which is the outdoor unit of your HVAC system. The time spent inspecting the condenser can vary as some issues are more obvious than others. Complex issues will require more time since it is multiple internal components causing your AC to malfunction. During their diagnostic they will also check your AC filter to ensure it is not clogged and needs to be replaced.

Discuss Repair Options

When our technician’s complete diagnostic, they will explain all your choices to you. They will explain what the issue is and the part that needs to be replaced, what caused the problem to occur and what purpose it serves in your air conditioning system. If you approve of the repair the service fee is waived and if it’s a common in stock part it can be replaced same day. In other cases, it may be a more complicated repair, that may require parts to be ordered or the condenser to be replaced. After you are offered options consider if AC replacement may be a better option in your situation if you have an older AC system or it’s a costly repair. Regardless of what may be required to get your AC back up and running the AC technician will be able to walk you through the repair and address any concerns you may have. Keep in mind if it’s a part that needs to be ordered or you decide on AC replacement, the office will contact you to schedule follow up appointment.
