We serve residential and commercial customers throughout Long Island and Five Boroughs.
What Can Go Wrong With Your AC?
One of the most common reasons your air conditioning unit is not working properly is a frozen internal coil. This can happen when there is a lack of proper airflow throughout the system itself. Fortunately, this is an issue that can be diagnosed and remedied by our technicians.
Another common issue is a faulty fan. This can cause the unit itself to overheat and even shut down entirely. In a worst case scenario, the overheating of the unit can lead to internal damage. As soon as you notice a problem with your fan, call your technician for help.
Finally, bad wiring can result in poor air conditioning performance. Such wiring can trip circuits within your home or building. Electrical wiring problems should never be a DIY project. This issue is easily handled by our professional technicians, who can guarantee proper repairs.
When is it Time to Replace Your AC?
Even with the right repairs and maintenance, most air conditioning units do not last beyond 20 years or so. Furthermore, air conditioning units are being made more energy efficient all the time, so it is a good idea to have your unit replaced if it is nearing 20 years and is constantly having problems.
In general, if your electric bills from your AC unit seem unusually high, it may be in your best interest to replace it with a more energy efficient unit, especially if your current one is more than 15 years old. Furthermore, if you notice that your AC unit is making strange noises and you are constantly needing repairs, you may want to look into replacing your unit altogether.
To avoid premature deterioration, make sure to perform regular maintenance on your unit at least once every year.
