Be Prepared for HVAC Repair Costs

Having to get your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system repaired can be tricky. On one hand, you may not know the first thing about your HVAC system (you’ve always assumed that the system was magic up to this point) and on the other hand you probably wouldn’t know the guy repairing your system well enough to be certain he won’t be ripping you off. But, you can’t just leave your HVAC system unrepaired. The only way to deal with this problem is to do a little research about the costs of getting your HVAC system fixed. Something to help you budget out your next month and avoid getting scammed out of your hard-earned money.

acService Fees You Can Expect

Varying considerably from company to company (or individuals that you may hire), these charges are ones you absolutely can’t get out of paying. The average repairman would charge a service fee of $45 to $100, so any figure higher or lower than that should raise your eyebrows and have you questioning the specifics. Always know exactly what you’re paying for and compare similar offers to make sure you get the best value out of your money.

Average Repair Costs

Whether it’s a heating system or an air conditioner that needs fixing, the expenses for the parts are usually quite steep. If you’re lucky, then the most you’d have to pay for parts should be around $50, but if it just wasn’t your day, you may end up shelving up to $2000, and that’s assuming you only have to pay for ONE faulty part. Still, if the national average is any consolation, you’d probably only have to pay around $300 for repairs, so here’s to hoping for the best.

Getting the Better of the System

The best way to avoid paying a huge sum for repairs is to make sure your system doesn’t break down in the first place. This may sound like something easier said than done, but it isn’t. Periodically cleaning out your HVAC system, changing air filters, cleaning vents and having professionals perform routine check-ups are all little things that help you avoid greater hassles in the future. The technicians at Cooling FX will always make sure clients are knowledgeable with the right information to maintain their air conditioning system. We want our customers to feel confident in keeping their systems in pristine condition until our next regularly scheduled check-up.

When Is It Time to Call a Professional for a Repair?

An air conditioning system is one of the most significant investments you’ll make for your home, especially living in South Florida. Regardless of the scorching summer months, Florida residents cherish their air conditioning even during the colder weeks of the year. Homeowners should know the basics of their air conditioning unit before they take the extra step and call the nearest professional.

At-Home Techniques:service

A standard maintenance step that’s taken at home is changing out the air filter to the air conditioning system. All it takes is a quick drive to a local hardware store to pick up a filter and following the steps according to the manufacturer’s standards. Avoid blockage disrupting the clean air flowing through your house by installing a new filter.

Calling a Professional:

The primary purpose of requesting a professional is for the annual routine maintenance check that all residents should have in place for their air conditioner. To avoid a costly repair down the line, keep your air conditioner healthy from the start.

Electrical work can be a complex process, especially if homeowners try to repair their system. Avoid severe consequences by calling a technician that is trained to work safely and quickly to provide fantastic services to replace a fuse or circuit breaker, etc.

When refrigerant begins to leak, specific steps should be taken that don’t involve just filling up the system with more refrigerant. There could be a hole that needs to be patched up or something more extensive that would require training to repair correctly. A qualified professional would fix the issue, test it to ensure its working correctly, and restore the correct amount of refrigerant according to manufacturer specifications.

Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning

Right away, you may be asking yourself what exactly is an HVAC system. HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning and it states the functions of the system. They are designed to provide thermal control and indoor comfort to the environment it inhabits. In Florida, stepping into any building, or home with air conditioning is an indescribable feeling. There are several types of HVAC systems that you can find in various areas.

Types

  • Split – This is named after the way that it’s set up. It is comprised of two separate units, a condenser, and an air handler. The condenser is located on the outside of your home and takes the heat from inside the house and transfers it outside. The air handler pushes refrigerant through to cool down your home.
  • Heat Pump – Pumps heat from the house and transfer it outside and vice versa if needed during the wintertime. Not ideal for constantly cold climates and is a variation on the traditional split system. They’re mostly found in condominiums.
  • Packaged Heating and AC System – Unit that has the two components of a split system packaged into one compact structure. It is a great alternative if you don’t have the space to fit a split A/C in your home. They are also typically mounted on the exterior of the home.

Benefits

Lower energy bills are a blessing throughout the scorching summers of Florida. You can expect a reasonable percentage off of your invoice and higher air efficiency by installing an HVAC in your home. It also helps you stay energy-conscious by reducing your carbon footprint. Specific rooms can be heated or cooled according to your liking with specific HVACs. If you own a single-family home, you may qualify for an FPC rebate.How much does installing a new air conditioner cost?

Top 5 Most Common Air Conditioning Problems

Common AC Problems

Common AC Problems

Air conditioning is a must-have living in South Florida. The heat outside our doors is intense, and if problems in our air conditioning systems surface, it can be quite costly. Being aware of the possible issues that can arise in your A/C unit will help maintain your system right now and for years to come. If the following problems are persistent, call a professional right away.

  1. Low Refrigerant/Leakage – Refrigerant is a chemical that cools the air inside you’re A/C unit. If leakage occurs, the temperature of the system may fluctuate, and that is a huge no-no if you’re trying to keep cool throughout the scorching summer. Make sure the leak is located and repaired immediately.
  2. Compressor – This is the driving force for the refrigerant in your air conditioning unit. It thrusts the coolant through the coils to keep your house fresh. This is a secondary issue to low refrigerant because if the compressor overheats, it will seize and fail.
  3. Evaporator and Condenser Coils – Evaporator coils absorbs the heat in the air and send it back into the house as cold air. Condenser coils are situated just outside the compressor. The coils can become corroded over time and frozen if not maintained correctly.
  4. Capacitors – The motors that power the compressor and fans rely on the capacitors to function correctly. Jolts of electricity keep the engine working nonstop, and if the capacitor out, the A/C unit will need care very soon.
  5. Filters – Clogged or dirty filters are one of the main reasons for A/C units for dysfunction. Some filters need to be changed monthly, tri-monthly or are reusable. Accumulation of dirt will reduce the air flow to your home and prevent your system from performing to the best of its ability.

AC Repair 101: Leaking Water

Call Now for Maintenance Specials (954) 916-6640

 

AC Repair : 101

Here are some of the most common types of A/C problems we come across. Some are preventable by doing routine maintenance that you can do yourself and others will require professionals.

Topic: “My A/C unit is leaking water”

  • A/C drain lines and pans should be cleaned at least twice a year
  • Drain lines and pans should be treated with tablets or liquid that can break up algae and slime that builds up causing the unit back up and start leaking
  • Filters need to be cleaned or replaced approximately every 30 days. A dirty filter can cause your unit to freeze up and start leaking.
  • Do not block A/C intake with boxes, suitcases, etc. This can cause a reduction in air flow causing the unit to freeze up and start leaking.
  • Low freon levels can also cause units to freeze up and drip water
  • Only an AC technician should measure your freon pressures and add freon as necessary.

Note: Low freon pressures usually means there is a leak in the system. There are several methods of leak detection which we will go over on future blogs.
