During the hot summer months, our schedule fills up with central air conditioning repair appointments. Rarely do our customers know their air conditioning isn’t working until the heat kicks in and they need relief. Since you want to get the most out of your time with your central air conditioning repairman, here are a few things you’ll want to ask during the repair.
What’s the Warranty Like?
The intense Texas heat may make you forget to ask questions about the repair but it’s crucial that you do. When the AC repairman comes to your home or business, ask him or her what the warranty is on the fix, particularly if new parts are involved. If you find out you need a new central air conditioning system, knowing the warranty is even more important.
Many of the systems we sell and install at Lex Air Conditioning are from top-rated brands that have excellent warranty packages on them.
Should I Expect More Problems in the Future?
If your central air system has broken down once, you should know whether or not there could be more problems in the future. During your repair, ask the technician to look at the rest of the system and let you know if there are any foreseeable problems you should be budgeting for. Knowing ahead of time that something could break lets you start saving money in anticipation of the problem.
Is the Central AC Repair Energy Efficient?
Energy efficient systems and repairs are important not only for the environment but also for your wallet. Every year, air conditioning systems get more and more energy efficient, thus saving you money. Before the repair begins, ask your technician if the parts he or she is using have a high energy efficiency rating.
If you have to buy an entirely new system, also ask about tax credits and rebates regarding a new system installation. Many states offer tax breaks for air conditioning systems that are energy efficient.
Is the Problem Preventable?
Some things break down over time while others are preventable with proper maintenance. When the technician is working on your AC unit, ask what caused the problem and how you can prevent a similar problem from occurring in the future. They’ll be more than happy to share their knowledge with you!
