Air Conditioning Repair Services
When an air conditioning system suddenly stops working in the dead of summer, or if it isn’t cooling a home like it used to, many home owners panic. Next, they generally call the first available company to come and look at it. Since it is absolutely critical to have a working system here in the hot, dry valley of the sun, customers are quickly convinced to install a new system.
While new systems can be great for the homeowner, residents, and environment, they are not always necessary. Wouldn’t it be better if an existing system can be properly diagnosed and repaired instead? This is where Cooler Tymes comes in—we only recommend new installs if they are absolutely necessary.
Our technicians are highly trained and skilled when it comes to every part of your air conditioning system. We excel at pinpointing leaks, faulty or damaged components, chewed wires, burned out capacitors, dirty or obstructed equipment, and so on. In many cases, all it takes is a quick, easy, and cost-effective fix rather than a brand new air conditioning system.
For many of the calls we respond to, all it takes to fix the system is just a minor tweak here and there. It is common for a system to be low on refrigerant (Freon) and needs this replenished. Of course, before we refill the refrigerant in a system, we always make sure to safely drain the system entirely, check its entirety for any potential leaks, and then move on from there.
Sometimes, the system has no leaks and just needs more refrigerant due to a unique circumstance; perhaps someone in the neighborhood decided to tap in to your system and steal a little for themselves, for example. However, most of the time, if more refrigerant is needed, there is likely a leak somewhere. Before making a recommendation, we always make sure to check the system thoroughly—adding refrigerant to a system unnecessarily could cause further damage to the system, and it certainly isn’t good for the environment. On top of that, the real problem might continue to go unchecked, allowing it to get worse.
Cooler Tymes cares about the environment, so we are extremely careful when handling refrigerant. We do not just top of systems without finding the leaks, and we properly contain and dispose of extra refrigerant in the proper ways. Please let us know if you have any questions when it comes to refrigerant, and we would be happy to educate you on our practices!
In addition to refrigerant, we do deal with many other common causes that usually have simple, fast fixes. Sometimes, a thermostat has stopped working properly and needs to be replaced. Perhaps a capacitor went bad and needs to be replaced. It is also possible that your system is just a bit dirty and needs a good cleaning and some TLC—it can be very dusty and dirty here in the desert, especially during monsoon season! Whatever the case may be, we most likely have the part(s) available on hand and can make a speedy air conditioning repair on your system, getting it back up and cooling your home as soon as possible. If we don’t we will let you know, and you can be sure that we will do everything in our power to swiftly acquire the necessary parts and equipment for your system.
If you are concerned about your system or feel like another company is trying to push you into unnecessary air conditioning repairs or replacements, please give us a call and have a chat with us—we will take care of you!
