Featured Review

"As a new homeowner, my AC breaking this summer was the first time I found myself staring down a potentially major expense. I got three separate quotes from companies that were well reviewed. Two of them quoted me thousands at a minimum to replace the blower motor and the wheel. They also started the sales process of a full system replacement. Eric came out and right away there was a different tone. He said the system (only 6 years old) was good as new, just needed the motor replaced and a good cleaning, that the wheel was fine. His quote was a breath of fresh air compared to the other ones. On the day of the job, it turned out the motor was completely rusted onto the wheel and Eric, without complaint, worked tirelessly until what should have been a 45 minute job was done many hours later. All that to spare me the expense of the wheel replacement. I appreciate an old school work ethic and the desire to salvage parts. Eric did all that and won a loyal customer in the process. Highly recommend."

"They were very reasonable with pricing compared to other companies I talked to. Also, his price did not change! Rey, the boss, kept me informed of everything that needed to be done and he showed the details. He is very personable and the work he and his staff did is very good. They even relined my chimney. every room in my house has heat first time in over 20 years. Much thanks to Rey and his workers for a job well done."

"We had coolant leaking from our mini-split unit. Instead of attempting to find a leak they just wanted to top up the coolant. I needed it working so we were not in a position to argue over it. I was expecting more but ultimately it is now working better."

Ideas & Inspiration from Philadelphia HVAC & Air Conditioning Contractors


Repairing an Air Conditioner in Philadelphia

While air conditioning repair in Philadelphia is not an issue all year round, for those homes that have central AC, it is essential in order to maintain efficiency and comfort during the summer months. Even homes that rely on window mounted units to beat the heat might require a visit or two from a repair man to make sure that it is running at its highest efficiency, as a malfunctioning air conditioner will not only do a bad job keeping the house cool, it can also become an extraordinary drain on the wallet.

Air Conditioning Repair Checklist
Before you hire a professional, there are a few things you can check on your own that might help breathe new life into your air conditioner. The first thing to examine is your condensing unit (which is outside) to make sure that it can easily draw air. Make sure that there is nothing on or around the unit that would keep it from pulling air in. Remove any obstructions such as newspaper and leaves.

Next, you should check the filter. Disposable fiberglass filters should be changed regularly to keep the unit running at its highest efficiency. If you have a permanent filter, it should be removed and cleaned with some frequency. One of the most practical checks you can perform is to run your air conditioner for a while before it is needed. A month before the weather gets hot, turn it on and see if it is functioning properly. Though this will not fix anything in itself, it will let you know if any repairs will be necessary before the temperature gets uncomfortable (which will, in turn, allow you to hire a pro before the first hot days of summer when everybody and their brother will be calling for repairs).

Philadelphia Air Conditioning Repair Professionals
Who you call is every bit as important as when you call if you want your repairs done right, and done quickly. Air conditioning repair requires a specialized skill set, and some special tools in many cases, as well. While a regular handyman might have some knowledge of how your air conditioning system operates, there is no substitute for a certified HVAC specialist with training and experience in the field.

Annual Maintenance
Many people make the mistake of waiting until there's a noticeable problem to call for repairs, which is a costly way to go. If your unit has a minor refrigerant leak, you'll be able to have it repaired for next to nothing; if that refrigerant is allowed to leak for an extended period of time, the burned out compressor that could result may cost over $1,000. Even those with a relatively new system should have it looked at once a year, preferably in the off season so you can work around your schedule rather than the schedule of your repair person.

Prices of Philadelphia Air Conditioning Repair
For air conditioning repair, Philadelphians generally pay somewhere between $100 and $450, but prices can get much higher if major components break. To hire a technician for a check-up should cost $100 or less and will depend on the services that check-up comes with (some companies might include cleaning and certain minor repairs in the check-up price, so it's good to read the fine print). In most cases, AC repair doesn't take more than a few hours.
