Prior to Air Conditioner Repair
In this article, we will list practical tips that you should follow before any repair of your air conditioner. Today there are many technicians and installers who advertise on the Internet or other places to repair your air conditioner, but not all are reliable and you can take some scare.
For this reason, it is important that you know the tips we are going to give you so you do not have any problems when choosing a good technician to repair your air conditioner. We will explain what you should consider when your air conditioner breaks down and you need to repair it.
Can you repair the air conditioning yourself?
It is important to know that it is best to contact a professional to solve any kind of problem and thus avoid having more serious breakdowns or accidents. In any case, there are times that if we have some basic knowledge of work in works or this type of service. We can try to solve the problem of broken air conditioning by ourselves.
For this, the first thing you should do is to check if the fault is easy to fix or not. It may be that the filters are dirty, that the drain is clogged, or simply that no power is reaching the air conditioner. In expertClima, we have written an article on how to troubleshoot an air conditioner. Take a look at it before calling a technician.
Air conditioner under warranty?
The second thing you need to check is if the air conditioner is within the warranty period, for this you will need the purchase invoice. Once you have confirmed that you are within the warranty period and that it is not a problem that is not a factory defect, such as no power, dirty filters, or for example that it has a small gas leak in the refrigerant lines that cause a loss of pressure and therefore the air conditioner stops working.
You should contact your dealer to initiate a warranty intervention process. Therefore we always recommend that before applying for a warranty, you confirm with your installer that the problem is the air conditioner that is to say factory defect. This is very important because if the problem is not in the machine, the service technician will charge for the time and travel time spent to check the machine.
Contact the installer to who you mounted the air conditioner
As we mentioned before it is important to contact a good technician, so it may be advisable that before looking for a technician who does not know you to repair the air conditioner, try to contact the installer who did the installation work. Therefore it will be the one who best knows the installation and its circumstances that can give you more direct attention and solve the problem more quickly.
In the case that he cannot help you for any reason, it is a good option to ask for a contact of confidence the contact of any installer whenever they give us good references. You can even ask any neighbor to make sure that the installer is from the area and save you from paying excessive travel costs. However, as we will explain later, ask for a quote and compare it with others. For additional tips and information about ac repair, you may visit their page to learn more.
