Commercial Air Conditioning Installation There are a lot of different parts in your air conditioner so most people would prefer to hire a professional air conditioning technician to fix their problems but there are a number of different issues that you could check and save yourself the cost of a house call. The number one issue that people have is that their air conditioner unit is not blowing any cold air. Here is a quick list of things to look at.1. The most common reason for this problem usually can be solved with the filter that is located in the air conditioning unit front panel. Most people can easily change the filter but because they forget to or neglect to (I'll do it next week), the filter ends up becoming clogged with dirt. Once the filter is clogged the condenser fins aren't able to breath and the unit freezes up. If this happens to your unit, change the filter and try turning the unit off for a couple of hours. This should allow the ice to thaw and the unit to work again. To keep this from happening again, make sure to replace your filter as often as it needs. You can usually tell when it needs changing by holding your filter to a light. If the light shines easily through, the filter can continue to be used. If it is opaque then the time has come to install a new filter.2. If you filter is clogged that means that your condenser fins might also be clogged, keeping them from working properly. You can use a brush to clean the fins off and often times this easy air conditioner repair will restore your unit to good working condition.3. The third issue that might cause the problem is low freon pressure in your unit. Over time leaks can develop that will allow the freon in your unit to leak. While you can buy a gauge to determine if this is the problem, you can't replace the freon yourself. You need an EPA license to work with freon. This is why the freon pressure is one of the things that should be checked by an air conditioner repair expert at least once per year.4. If the thermostat is turned down and the condenser fan fails to turn on, a burnt or shorted wire could be the cause. Sometimes the wires just get shaken loose so this is another easy fix. 5. Finally, as silly as it seems, if the unit isn't working, check all the fuses or circuit breakers to make sure that it is getting power. Air conditioning repair people report that this happens a whole lot more frequently than you would think.Bottom line is that there are a number of things that you as a homeowner can easily check before calling in an air conditioner repair person. The important thing to remember though is that there is a reason that the air conditioner repair people require training to get their licenses.It's because there are some potential problems that are too complicated for the average homeowner to fix. Make sure that you know your limits or you just might be creating more problems than you solve.

What Are the Costs For Air Conditioning Repair?

Daikin The sand, the surf... the hot summer temperatures! You get it all in Virginia Beach where I live, and usually on the hottest day of the year you also get the unexpected realization that your air conditioning is not working. So, what do you do when the mercury starts to climb and so does the temperature in your home? Who do you call to fix it and not get overcharged?Most folks don't know a whole lot about their heating and cooling systems. Maybe they have had some service work done before but in most cases, when your system goes down, you really have no idea where to turn. Most will grab the Yellow Pages or log onto the Internet and search for Air Conditioning repair companies in the city where they live.Here's the thing though, most contractors know that you may not even be able to begin to guess how much a particular part in your heating or cooling system actually cost so they will inflate the price they pay for it by as much as 1000% or more! And how would you know any differently; this is not something you go through everyday and do you really want to pay another service call to have someone else come out and give you another price? Chances are you will pay many times more for a part than the next company you would call does anyway and be stuck with another diagnostic charge. It is crazy how much parts are inflated and even the labor.Awhile back a guy got the clever idea ot charge customers on what he called, "flat rate pricing". This went away from the "parts and labor" charges most people were familiar with. The idea was that a customer could know what a repair was going to cost up front no matter how long it took.On the surface this sounded great but what it really did was give a company the chance to tell customers we can't give you a break down on parts and labor because our repairs are just one price... on "flat rate price".Now instead of the customer keeping an eye on a technician to make sure he was not milling the labor charges, the customer has no idea what formula was used to get the price of a repair. No knowledge of part mark up or how much labor was added.Very rarely are there any parts on a system, especially ones that the technician says he carries on his truck, that cost more than $100 and take an hour or more to install. With this in mind you should refuse a repair that is higher than $275 that can be done "right now". Anything else I would ask to see the receipt for the part after the technician goes to pick it up. Oh, when it comes to Freon, a lot of companies are charging $70 to $200 per pound as I write this. Truth is, most of these companies are paying no more than $10 per pound even if they get a bad deal when they buy it.Freon can be put into the system very quickly yet the company will charge you not only a diagnostic trip charge but a couple hundred dollars for 3 pounds of freon they can put into your system in about 10 minutes... it is crazy and you should not stand for it!
