Air conditioning repair service

There are many types of air conditioners, the car air conditioner, the wall air conditioner, the central air conditioner, the portable system and the split system air conditioner. Most air conditioners have the following similar parts:

  • Compressor: This compresses and circulates the refrigerant in the system and is the central part of the AC
  • Refrigerant: This is usually the medium that carries heat from one components to the other.
  • Condenser: It cools the refrigerant from hot gas to liquid and expels the heat to the outside.
  • Expansion valve (or orifice tube in some vehicles): Controls the pressure and temperature of the refrigerant
  • Evaporator: This cools your surroundings by passing the air across cool refrigerant to your surrounding
  • Receiver/dryer: This functions as a filter for the refrigerant and removes moisture and contaminants
  • At some point the air conditioner may start having problems and you should get it repaired by a certified technician from a quality service company near you. They will first do an initial diagnosis before establishing what the problem is and then make recommendations. If you do regular maintenance then they will only be small repairs to do. However, without maintenance you may find yourself having to replace components of the AC system which are quite costly. Most companies have the components there and will easily replace any parts that need to be repaired. They also offer to retrofit your old refrigerant with the newer environmentally safe refrigerant.

    One of the great ways to pick the best company is to select one that meets your criteria and can meet your needs. First you should check how well established the company is and if it has received great reviews on its own website and on others. Is it a successful company? Or has no one ever heard of it? This is important to know so that in case of any breakdown after subsequently fixing your AC they can do a quick recheck and fix what they missed.

    When an AC can no longer function in cooling or warming the environment around it then it needs to be repaired. The first thing you should do is check to see if your warranty is still available and then call a technician. If your warranty has not yet expired you can call the company that issued the AC and come to an understanding of how it will be fixed. If the warranty has expired there are many skilled people who may be able to fix your AC .There are two types of groups that can fix your AC; the first can be a company that deals with repair and this are often quite expensive and the second type are freelancers and they may either charge you less than the repair company or more. Therefore it is critical to choose the type of repair person to fix your AC.

    You should always schedule for regular maintenance of your AC system so as to avoid regular repairs.
