Here in Vero Beach, Florida, an air conditioner in good working order is a necessity. Our days are hot, and our nights usually are, too, making reliable AC equipment a must at home and at work.
There are some myths floating around about air conditioner repair that we’d like to dispel today. Our goal is to keep our community protected against excessive heat and comfortable indoors regardless of what’s going on with the weather outside. We strive to meet that goal through our reliable, high-quality services and by sharing information readily with our community.
Myth 1: Repairs Are Usually Unnecessary
As with any type of electromechanical equipment, including your vehicle or washer and dryer, air conditioner repairs sometimes ARE necessary, and they’re needed to keep your system operating correctly and efficiently. Your air conditioner has both passive and active components, electronic circuits, wiring, fans, motors, and more. Over time, a number of things can go wrong; taking care of smaller repairs early will often prevent or delay larger repairs down the road.
Myth 2: It’s Too Expensive
If you feel that the quote you’ve received for air conditioner repair services is too high, contest it. Sometimes you can negotiate a lower rate. Or price around; get multiple quotes from different places. Just remember, the lowest quote is not always the best one. You want to find a reliable company with knowledgeable technicians who will do the job right the first time.
What’s more, even if you feel that having repairs done is too expensive, if your air conditioner is malfunctioning (or altogether quits on you), foregoing repairs can lead to higher costs associated with more in-depth fixes or the need to purchase a brand new system.
When you choose to work with Immaculate Air, you will be updated on the best, most cost-effective approach to your AC issues. If your unit is older and the required repairs are too extensive and pricey, we may recommend that you replace your equipment. But if we can provide air conditioner repair services that will keep your system running smoothly for a long time and save you money in the long run, we will recommend this approach.
The truth is that every AC problem has to be treated on a case-by-case basis. Once we inspect your HVAC system and evaluate the condition of your equipment, we’ll be in a position to recommend repairs or replacements for the most sensible, cost-effective solution.
Myth 3: AC Units Don’t Need Cleaning
Like pretty much anything in this world, your air conditioning system wears down and gets dirty, and it needs to be serviced and cleaned periodically. Let us know what brand and model of air conditioner you have, and approximately how old it is, and we can share with you what type of cleaning should be done, what you can do yourself, and what services you need to call an HVAC technician to take care of for you. Fins, coils, and other parts do need cleaning for your unit to function efficiently.
Myth 4: I Can Do It All Myself
Sure, there are things you can do yourself, such as changing the filters. The problem, however, is that many people don’t know how to change a filter, or how frequently it needs to be done. Or they simply forget to do it.
If you’d like to know how to change filters on your air conditioner and how often this needs to be done, get in touch with Immaculate Air. We’ll be happy to offer guidance. If you’d rather not have to deal with this job, schedule a service appointment and we’ll take care of it for you.
For all other AC service jobs beyond changing filters, you’re best off having an experienced technician do the work. If you try to do it yourself, you risk damaging the system and incurring larger repair costs to fix what you broke.
Myth 5: No Extra Prep Work Is Needed From One Season To The Next
The truth is that prep work IS needed as seasons change, even here in Florida. We’ve mentioned filters earlier, and changing them is a must-do. That’s just one example of the tasks that need to be done before we get into the hotter part of the year in our humid, subtropical climate. If you want to keep cool during our hottest months, make sure to have your unit serviced before the intense heat gets here.
