When To Call A Boulder AC Repair Expert

January 10, 2011 at 9:09 pm | Category: Air Conditioning

Don’t wait until the heat of the summer sets in before calling for Boulder  AC repair. Have you turned on the air conditioner and noticed that it isn’t blowing out cold air? Or, do you hear an unusual noise when it turns on? These are signs that it may be time to make the phone call. One of the reasons that you want to check on things at the first sign of a problem is that some issues that continue on for a while can damage the unit, causing you to have to replace it.

Take Action Immediately

If you do hear a noise or notice a problem, don’t wait and assume that the issue will go away. The quicker you start trying to find the problem, as well as the solution, the quicker you can begin to cool off in peace. If the problem is intermittent, you may want to take note of when it happens, including the time of day, the weather conditions, and anything that is taking place in the home that could be a factor. This way, if you do need to call for an AC repair, you will have some information to share with the repairman.

Take a Look

Most people can easily find their unit somewhere behind the house or in the backyard. Talk a walk back there and give a visual inspection of the area. Sometimes, debris or plants can get into the system causing it to either not run correctly, or not run at all. In this case, see if you can remove some of the items that are there to create a clearer space.

Another place to look is the air conditioners filter. Many times, homeowners put a filter in and just forget about it until there is a problem. Find where it is located, remove the vent and see what the condition is. If you just see a black filter or dust everywhere, it is time to get a new one. You can pick these up at just about any store in your area.

Making the Decision

If you have looked around and changed the filter, there may be nothing that you can do. In that case, it is time to call in the Boulder AC professionals for repair. If you are worried about the cost, check for a company in your area that offers a free inspection or free estimate. Many times, this will bring someone out to the house and you can have an approximate cost the same day.

You may find that instead of an AC repair, you need a whole new unit. If this is the case, you may be concerned because of the cost. Take your time and look around as quickly and efficiently as possible to get some idea of the cost. Check with the repairman before he leaves to see what type of equipment and installation they offer. It may be easy, and more affordable, to just go with them.
