Air Conditioning Repair Service Youngsville
It is the peak of summer and temperatures are soaring. Suddenly, your home air conditioning stops working. It is now time to call upon your local heating and air conditioning repair service to come and look at your system to try to get it working again. So, what can you expect the service person to do while at your home?
The first thing that a technician will do when they come to your house is look at your thermostat. They will remove the covering and check the inside wiring to make sure everything on the inside of your thermostat is in good working order and still connected. They will replace the cover and ensure the setting is set to cool. The technician will adjust the temperature setting to make sure that your AC is responding to the thermostat controls. If everything checks out, they will move on to checking the next simplest problem.
Sometimes when an AC stops running it may be something as simple as a blown fuse. The technician will want you to show him/her the fuse box inside your house. They will then open up the fuse box and locate the switch for your AC. They will turn the switch off and then flip it back on again. If this does not seem to be the issue, they will continue to investigate further.
Once the technician has looked at the simplest problems and determined they are not the culprits, he/she will want to look at the outside AC unit. The repair person will then look at all the components including the air condenser fan, hoses, air filter and refrigerant level. The air filter will be checked to make sure nothing is obstructing it and the fan will be checked to make sure it is turning properly. They will also look at the overall size of the unit to ensure that it is the appropriate size to cool your home.
Once the entire system has been examined thoroughly and a diagnosis has been made, the service technician will talk to you. They will relay to you the identified problem and the part that needs to be replaced. Depending on the cost of the repair, which will also be discussed, they may recommend that you replace the entire system. Although complete replacement may be more costly, it could be the right decision so your air conditioner doesn't keep failing or if the air conditioner is simply old. Once you have given permission for the repair or replacement, either the part will be fixed that day if it is available or it will be ordered and the technician will have come back to do the repair. Lastly, before leaving, he/she will tell you how you can prevent the AC from breaking down again by performing regular maintenance.
No one likes the thought of putting out money to make costly repairs. The best way to avoid this is to think proactively. Remember, in order to keep your AC running smoothly, set up yearly maintenance with your local heating and AC repair service.
