AC Repair

Do It Yourself, or
Call an Expert?

Here in the Tri-cities, we’re independent, self-reliant, and proud of it. We believe each person should take responsibility for their own life. We’re a community of Do-it-Yourselfers. That’s usually a good thing. Not when it comes to Air Conditioning repair, though. That’s not so wise. 

There are several compelling reasons why homeowners should leave air conditioning repairs to professional HVAC technicians:

  • Safety First: AC units have parts that can be dangerous to work with. Mistakes can lead to leaks or fires. Without the right training and gear, it’s risky for homeowners to try and fix these systems.
  • Complex Systems: Today’s AC units are complicated. Fixing them needs specific knowledge, specific skills, and specialized equipment. Trying to do it yourself could cause more damage or injury.
  • Protect Your Warranty: AC makers often require that a certified technician does repairs to keep the warranty valid. Doing it yourself could mean you’ll pay out of pocket for any new problems.
  • Protect the Environment: ACs use special gases that can harm the environment if released. Our technicians have the specialized equipment and know-how to handle and dispose of these safely.
  • Avoiding Future Trouble: A bad repair job can lead to less efficient cooling, a shorter life for your AC, and safety issues. Our pros can find and fix problems in a way that helps your system both last longer and work better.
  • Responsibility: If you try to fix it and something goes wrong, you could be on the hook for damage or injuries. HVAC companies have insurance for this reason.

How to Choose the Right A/C Repair Company

What are the most important things to look for when choosing an air conditioner repair company for your home or business? This list will help you separate the pretenders from the contenders.

  • Proper Paperwork: Make sure the company’s workers are allowed to fix air conditioners in Tennessee and know how to handle special – and sometimes dangerous – cooling materials safely.
  • They Know Their Stuff: Find out how long they’ve been fixing air conditioners around the Tri-cities. Their workers should really understand our weather and the sometimes-quirky construction choices that are common here. Furthermore, they should have trained specialists for all the different types of HVAC needs that are common to our area.
  • Good Words from Customers: Look at what people say online about them. You want to hear that they do a good job, are nice to customers, and fix problems fast.
  • They Do It All: The best companies can do everything – put in new systems, keep them running well, and be there in a pinch, for home and businesses.
  • They’re Super Sleuths: Ask if they have the right equipment to figure out tricky air conditioner problems quickly and – just as important – can explain what’s wrong and how they’ll fix it.
  • Promises, Promises: Look for a company that promises their work will last and fixes things without a fuss If and when something goes wrong.
  • Saving Energy: They should also be able to help you make your air conditioner run better so you don’t waste energy, which is super important when it gets hot and sticky here in the summer.
