With this summer heat hitting a minimum daily high of 85 degrees in the morning and topping off at 100 degrees midday, it’s no wonder that air conditions seem to fail this time of the year from being over worked. But don’t be fooled by ac repair service in Brownsville Tx, you have to watch out for those leeches that take advantage of the times and overcharge for their services or even coming out to check your Air Conditioner.
Unfortunately for us, the consumer, when our a/c breaks down and humidity is over 90% along with looming high temperatures, we get desperate to feel comfortable within our home, especially when we have young children or older family members who depend on the ac unit to stay safe from the heat. AC repair companies know this and as always, there are those select few who ruin it for the masses.
Those cheating ac repair guys are the ones that cause the most damage to your unit with their quick fixes just to charge you a buck. Remember, cheaper isn’t always better! Many of these guys charge well below what a professional would normally charge making it tempting for many people to fall under their influence. I would personally rather pay a little more and do my due diligence on the companies I call upon before they service my a/c.
No matter where you find your ac repair company, like always…research, research, research. The internet is a beautiful tool to use to not only find what you’re looking for but to find out what others’ experiences are with the company you’re looking to hire.
I know of many people who use Craigslist to find their technician, I personally wouldn’t do such a thing. Don’t get me wrong…Craigslist is great for many things but many of those leeches use it to make a quick buck. There are many reputable companies that post their services there as well, but I’d rather use search engines and websites like Angie’s list to hire a professional.
Once you have your ac repaired, it’s a good idea to maintain it by servicing it right before the major change of seasons. I usually have mine serviced right before winter and the same just before the summer heat begins.
I would highly recommend using the same company for all your ac needs as long as they provide it and don’t switch around just because of price. Remember, if your ac gets damaged with so many different hands working on it, it’s going to cost you a lot more to get a new one…oh, and remember….there’s an inside and outside unit so you would have to replace the pair for maximum efficiency. I learned my lesson on my prior home as I did not take the advice of the repair specialist who told me to replace both my interior and exterior units for maximum efficiency or he could not guarantee my units would work well together (I replaced a 20 year old unit that had the coil come apart…image what the other one looked like ). Lesson learned, I eventually replaced the 2nd unit as each one was the original units with the home.
So be smart and don’t get desperate should you fall into a situation where your ac stops working in the middle of the summer. Below is my choice for ac repair anytime.
