How to Be Ready for Your Air Conditioning Service Appointment

Nothing says “summer” like a 118-degree day. That was the recent record-setting temperature Phoenix homeowners endured recently. When it’s that hot, you don’t mess around with a home air conditioning system that’s not working at 100%.

Don’t wait for your system to completely break down before calling an experienced, trustworthy air conditioning repair professional from Chas Roberts Air Conditioning & Heating. To be prepared for the air conditioning service professional’s visit, you should follow these tips:

Block out enough time. When scheduling, allow about 1.5 hours for the visit. During the visit the technician will inspect the existing equipment, prepare a load calculation and explain the many new advancements in technology that could save you money. The technician will also answer any questions you might have.

Make sure the path to your A/C is clear. The comfort specialist will need to see your existing equipment and ductwork. Easy access through closets and attics is critical to diagnosing and repairing any problems.

Have your utility bills available. Some repairs are more easily fixed than others. Depending on the problem, it might make more financial sense to consider a system replacement. A new system will provide a more enjoyable and comfortable dwelling and could even save you a considerable amount of money. The service technician will be able to look at your bills and give you an idea of how much money you might save.

Have important information ready for the service technician. The service professional will have some questions. To make the visit go smoothly, you should have the following information ready:

  • Which rooms get too hot or cold?
  • Does anyone in the household suffer from asthma or allergies?
  • Does the home get too muggy or too dry at certain times of the year?
  • Is the outdoor unit accessible to children or pets?
  • Is the system noisy?
  • What repairs have been made to the system in the past?
  • Are future energy costs a concern?
