Air conditioning repair is a significant matter that requires a homeowner's attention. You won't gracefully get through any summer season today unless you have high-tech air conditioning that works on demand. It starts with finding the right professionals and knowing what work you need. Check for contractors that are American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) approved and check all of their references.
Below are a few common types of air conditioning repair that a licensed and accredited professional should help you with.
Your air conditioner is one of those things that you hope you can just set and forget, but it doesn't always turn out that way. Problems with your thermostat can both ruin your comfort and run up your energy bills. If you suspect there's something wrong with your thermostat, here's what you can do about it.
The Temperature Just Doesn't Feel Right
Let's say you have your thermostat set to 76 degrees and your air conditioner always turns on when it gets up to 77 degrees and turns off when it gets back down to 75 degrees.
If you get a whiff of mold or mustiness but you can't figure out where it's coming from, you may want to check your air conditioner. Mold can grow inside the air conditioner and blow spores and musty odors around your home. Here are some things that can cause mold in your air conditioner and some ways to fix the problem.
Why Mold Grows in an Air Conditioner

Installing a new HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) unit requires a lot of things to come together. The contractor will usually coordinate most of the installation for you, including hiring an electrician for the job.
HVAC Electrical Installation
Before you install a new HVAC unit, you need to be sure that your home or business has the infrastructure to support it. Something as simple as not having enough power in the breaker panel can completely derail the installation of the new unit.
If you're like many homeowners, you don't give your home heating system much thought until and unless something goes wrong — and that something is usually a complete breakdown of your furnace. Because these things have a way of happening during evening and weekend hours when it may be difficult, not to mention expensive, to have a service technician come to your home. In a worst-case scenario, you may have to wait until the next weekday to get an appointment with a repair service.
