Ideas & Inspiration from Atlanta HVAC & Air Conditioning Contractors


Atlanta A/C Repair

Atlanta air conditioning repair is not as common you might think. Although most systems have a life expectancy of 15-20 years, many units don?t need repairs until it?s time for replacement. That said, some homeowners rush to replace units that still have several years left in them. In any case, when problems do arise, big or small, you're smart to address them immediately. In a climate that's as hot and humid as Atlanta's, homeowners ask a lot of their air conditioners. And when you're running you're A/C around the clock on a regular basis, even the smallest of problems can add up to less cooling power, reduced efficiency, and higher utility bills.

Prevention
Obviously, the easiest repair in the books is one that's avoided altogether by keeping up on regular maintenance chores. Make sure that you keep the condenser coils clean, the condenser drain hose free and clear, and ensure proper airflow by replacing the filter on a regular basis. In fact, if you have been neglecting your A/C in the maintenance department and have noticed it is starting to slack a little when it comes to performance, taking evasive action concerning the tasks mentioned above may be enough to solve your problem without the expensive services of an Atlanta air conditioning repairman. On the other hand, one alternative solution may be to employ an Atlanta air conditioning repairman early. Spring air conditioning inspections can identify problems before your system is needed. Some companies even offer free inspections in the hope of drumming up business before the summer chaos hits.

Repair Costs
Even the best maintained air conditioners run into trouble now and again, and when they do, the first thing they want to know is how much it's going to cost. To be fair, air conditioning repair in Atlanta is not a one-size-fits-all proposition, and depending on the nature of the repair, final costs can vary widely. That said, ServiceMagic.com collects data on the thousands of contractor referrals we provide to Atlanta area homeowners every year, and based on that information, we can tell you that the average cost of service calls and repairs in the A-T-L runs a pretty reasonable $320, though they can range anywhere from $100 to $900 depending on your particular air conditioning repair needs.

Common Repairs
While air conditioning repair in Atlanta isn't common, there are a number of things that can go wrong. Here's a quick list of the most common failures associated with air conditioning in Atlanta, and what to do about them.

  • Refrigerant Leaks—Leaking refrigerant is never a good thing. Low refrigerant levels can reduce energy efficiency and cooling power, and refrigerants can be harmful to the environment as well. Since the use and disposal of refrigerants is subject to federal regulation and guidelines, and since each air conditioner has specific requirements when it comes to topping off the fluid in your system, this is one job better left to the pros.

  • Electronic Controls and Sensors—The electronic controls and sensors that cause your air conditioner, fan, and condenser to kick off and on properly are often the first components to go. Fortunately, problems of this nature are easy to address compared to larger mechanical failures, and won't cost you nearly as much.

  • Fan and Condenser Failure—Fan and condenser failure, on the other hand, can add up to some pretty pricey repairs. Replacing burnt-out fan motors is usually worth the expense in order to get your A/C up and running again, though a failed condenser can be a different story. A new condenser is the most expensive repair in the books, and depending on the age and efficiency of your current air conditioner, it might be a smarter investment to just upgrade to a newer unit.

    Finding a Contractor
    There are a lot of nuts-and-bolts that go along with Atlanta air conditioning repair, but like so many home improvements, your greatest asset is finding a quality, reputable contractor. Finding a reputable contractor is very important when it comes to getting a fair shake on an air conditioning repair in the ATL, especially since contractors of any sort aren't required to obtain licensing to go into business in the state of Georgia. Getting at least three bids on any repair job and checking references are the best ways to protect yourself from unscrupulous contractors, and to make sure you get the best deal possible when it comes to getting your A/C in Atlanta operational again. And HomeAdvisor can help. Each and every contractor in our system is put through a rigorous ten-step screening process. We also provide quality-controlled customer ratings and reviews so you can see what other homeowners thought about individual contractors. These reviews also create a powerful incentive for contractors to meet and exceed your expectations.
