Ideas & Inspiration from Pittsburgh HVAC & Air Conditioning Contractors

Pittsburgh A/C Repair

Though there are quite a few months in the year when Iron City residents wouldn't dream of wanting to be any colder, Pittsburgh air conditioning repair is still a necessity to keep you home running efficiently during the summer. It is good to know, therefore, what you can do on your own to keep your system working its best, when it is time to call a professional, and when it's time to throw in the towel and purchase a new system.

At Home Maintenance
Finding problems while they are small can make a big difference in the amount it will take to fix them. To avoid costly air conditioning repair, Pittsburgh residents should make it a point to regularly examine the parts of their system that are easily accessible. One of the best ways to keep your AC blowing good quality cool air is to watch the filter. Some disposable filters should ideally be replaced about once a month when your air conditioning has been running often. Others can last up to three months even when your system has been running constantly. Permanent filters should also be examined once a month and cleaned if necessary.

Sometimes leaves, newspaper, or other debris can collect where the condenser draws air, which can cause a change in air quality and coolness. Homeowners should do a quick examination of the condenser unit outside and remove anything that might be blocking its intake to make sure that it can pull in air without obstruction.

Preventative Repair
Aside from regular examinations by the homeowner, a yearly check-up done by a professional is an excellent way to prolong the life of your system and keep it running its best. It is a good idea to get this done before hot weather hits. Once the temperature rises enough for folks to want their AC on, Allegheny County's air conditioning experts generally have their hands full for weeks at a time. If you want to beat the crowd and have a technician give your system a once over when it's convenient for you, make your appointment in early spring.

Repair vs. Replacement
At some point, even the best brands and most well maintained units will need to be replaced. Air conditioners that have past their prime give off air that is not cool enough and cost too much to run. In Pittsburgh, air conditioning repair will take you a long way because you don't have to use your system during much of the year, but if you've noticed a drop in performance that doesn't go away even after you call a professional, or if your system is more than 15 years old, you might be a candidate for replacement. Newer model AC units cool faster and more efficiently, and they take up less room, too.

In most cases, air conditioning repairs are in the $100-$500 range. Some parts are more expensive than others, however, and repairs costing $1,000 or more are not unheard of. In Pittsburgh, installing an air conditioning condenser starts at about $2,500, though prices for putting in new ductwork along with the condenser unit can easily be over $5,000.
