AC Repair FAQs

How can I avoid damage to my air conditioner in the future?

The best way to prevent costly repairs for your air conditioner is to keep up with your maintenance. This includes the monthly tasks you can undertake on your own, such as swapping or cleaning filters, cleaning the exterior unit and giving it a quick visual inspection, and scheduling annual or even seasonal professional maintenance. Even if problems arise, they’ll be smaller and less expensive to repair with regular professional tune-ups.

I need my AC back on quickly. How long will AC repairs take?

It depends on the nature of your problem. In most cases, we’ll have the tools and components at hand to get your AC running again in no time at all, mere hours at most—but more serious cases, or in homes where the unit or ducts aren’t readily accessible, repairs may take longer.

Should I replace my AC instead of repairing it?

Deciding whether to repair or replace your air conditioner depends on several factors, including how old your air conditioner is. Air conditioners tend to last for 15 to 20 years, but it’s often a good idea to go ahead and upgrade if you need serious repairs and it’s more than 10 years old. The cost of repairs plus the savings you’ll get from new technology often shifts the balance in favor of replacement. You might also want to consider a replacement if you’re looking for more power from your unit, have a lemon that keeps requiring repairs, etc.

Will AC repairs fix high energy bills?

It depends on why exactly your energy bills are so high. This can be a warning sign of a problem with your air conditioner, a natural consequence of using older technology, a result of leaky or blocked ducts, a thermostat problem, or it can be completely independent of your HVAC system–a problem of insulation, weatherproofing, etc. Our team at Banks Quarles will know more once we take a look.
