Nothing will put you in a bad mood like an AC breakdown; especially in the middle of a hot summer day in Philadelphia. Not only do you have to deal with an uncomfortable home climate, but you also get the unexpected expense of air conditioning repair. Now, I know what you’re thinking. It’s hot outside, and your friend is really good at DIY home improvement. He can just come over and fix your air conditioner, right? Wrong.

It’s tempting to have a friend or family member attempt air conditioning repair for you. They’ll charge you a fraction of what the pro’s will, and they’ll be able to do it sooner. The truth is however, amateur air conditioning repair will cost you more in the long run.

Professional Air Conditioning Repair Means Expert Service

Yes, we’re impressed that your cousin Troy built you a kitchen table from scratch, but there’s no way he has the air conditioning repair know-how that comes with years of experience. After over 20 years, we’ve seen it all at HVAC Philly. Often times, a problem that might seem like a simple fix is actually a complex problem that only an experienced technician can identify. These types of repairs are where you’re going to lose big with an amateur repair man. We’ve had a lot of repairs where we had to fix amateur work, and it ended up costing the client much more than it would’ve if they had done the repair right the first time.

Botched Amateur Repair Stories

A client called us the other day to take a look at their one year old air conditioner. It wasn’t running, and their breaker tripped every time they tried to turn it on. One of our skilled techs Air Conditioning Repairarrived on location, and as soon as he opened the condenser panel door, he noticed that the wires between the contractor and condenser fan motor had been cut and reconnected using wire caps. One of those wires shook loose from its cap and was in contact with the common wire that runs to the compressor. This caused the compressor to short, and the customer had to pay for a new one. Any professional HVAC tech knows that wire caps aren’t appropriate to use in this situation. They can easily shake loose from the vibration of the compressor and fan motor.

Another client called us because she was getting less air pressure from her unit after an amateur air conditioning repair job. It turns out that her friend installed a blower motor capacitor with the wrong capacitor rating. We easily fixed the problem, but the client ended up spending unnecessary money on what would’ve been a simple fix had she gone with the pros.

Philadelphia Air Conditioning Repair Pros Are Insured

To operate an HVAC business in Philadelphia, a company is obligated to be licensed, bonded, and insured. This protects both you and the company you hire. Air conditioning repair involves working with hazardous chemicals, so if you have an uninsured friend working on your AC unit and he gets injured, you could be held liable. Working with a professional company protects you as a consumer as well.  If something goes wrong with your AC unit due to a botched repair or faulty part, any reputable Philadelphia air conditioning repair company will do right by you and fix the problem. This isn’t the case if you hire an amateur to do your repair.

Professional Repair Maximizes Efficiency

Don’t forget that a professional HVAC company has access to the newest tech and the most trusted parts. There are amateurs out there who have experience with air conditioning repair and can perform acceptable repair, but pro’s like our technicians at HVAC Philly have air conditioning repair down to a science. 99% of the time, a licensed HVAC technician will perform repairs that will leave your system running more efficiently than a handy friend.

As for dealing with the summer heat when your A/C breaks down, HVAC Philly offers 24 hour emergency service. If you live in Philadelphia, Montgomery, or Bucks County, give us a call at 215-725-6111. We offer unparalleled service and competitive pricing. Stay cool, my friends.
