5 Tips for Air Conditioning and Furnace Repair

Heating and air conditioning repair is one of the many “joys” of household maintenance. Although every home or business owner should have a skilled air conditioning repair specialist on hand, there are 5 steps you can take to keep your system working in tip-top shape:

  • Inspect ducts, filters, blower and coils for obstructions
  • Look for leaks or pooling water around the system
  • Check for cracks or broken sealants around the furnace or air conditioning system
  • Examine outdoor handlers for fallen debris, grass or other outdoor items that could clog or deter your system from working properly
  • Clean and/or replace filters every month – a clogged filter can inhibit your system from working properly

You can also reduce the number of air conditioning repair calls by having your furnace and air conditioning professionally maintained every year.  This will help you to avoid that emergency furnace repair call during the dead of winter.

How to Choose a Heating Repair Specialist

Whether you have a RUUD, Bryant, Coleman, Rheem, Lennox, Carrier or Trane, you need an air conditioning and heating repair specialist who has knowledge and experience working with a variety of makes and models. When it comes to selecting a heating and cooling specialist, ask about education, certification and years in business. Additional tips to finding a good heating and air conditioning specialist: 

  • Get referrals: ask friends, co-workers or neighbors for heating and air conditioning repair specialists
  • Ask the company for references: especially for commercial heating and cooling repair, contact other companies who have used the HVAC specialist
  • Look for a company that carries ENERGY STAR products: ENERGY STAR heating and cooling systems meet the rigorous energy efficiency standards set by the EPA, which can save you a bundle of money in the long run
  • Request written estimates: your contractor should provide you with a free home evaluation and estimate
  • Check licensing and insurance: your contractor should be licensed and insured to ensure the safety and liability for both parties – coheating.com
