Can I Fix My Air Conditioner?

Monday, May 24th, 2021

Why Your AC May Cost So Much to Run

Monday, August 7th, 2017

air-conditioner-money-saverIt’s far enough into summer that you’ll already be used to the rise in the electric bills that always comes with running an air conditioning system in hot weather.

One is that there are problems with the air conditioning system or the ventilation system.

Why You Shouldn’t Attempt AC Repairs on Your Own

Monday, June 12th, 2017

tools-on-ac-unitWe live in a “do-it-yourself” culture, and much of that is the responsibility—some would say the fault—of the Internet. Anyone today can type a few terms into a search engine on topics as diverse as gardening to automotive repair and come away with a handy-dandy lists of “surefire” tips for how to take care of that [fill in the blank] problem without needing to pay a professional to do it.

With some jobs, a bit of knowledge and some hard work is all it takes to be able to “do it yourself.” But DIY culture unfortunately often leads people astray so they attempt to handle tasks that only professionals can do properly. One of these tasks is air conditioning system repair.

Air conditioners are a part of everyday life during summers, so it’s only natural people would want to attempt to fix faulty ones on their own. It seems like it would save money and time. But it won’t: it will likely waste both and have even larger consequences. No matter what type of air conditioning system your home relies on, only trained and licensed professionals like ours should tackle repairs, regardless of how “minor” they may seem.

Monday, April 3rd, 2017

wall-clockIn our last two blog posts, we looked over the benefits of spring maintenance for an air conditioner and why it’s important to schedule it this time of year. As important as professional maintenance is, however, you still need to do testing of your own before the summer heat arrives. You don’t want to be surprised when you turn on your air conditioner for the first time during the year and find that it’s failed. Yes, even with regular maintenance, this can happen. We recommend you take your air conditioner for a test run during the spring to catch any lingering troubles early on.

Pick a day with cool or warm outdoor temperatures when you won’t mind having the air conditioner running for an hour or so, but when you don’t actually need it for comfort. Turn it on, and then take some time to watch for faults, small and large, that indicate you should contact our HVAC technicians for air conditioning repair in Eugene, OR or elsewhere in the state. Below are some behaviors to watch for that are warnings about malfunctions or a system that’s aging rapidly.
