Taking notes about the problem

Consider this as your manual documentation about the incident of your ac unit. This actually helps in identifying the problem. The notes can be a series of questions. It can include: Did the ac unit stop functioning? Is the ac unit noisy? Does it have an odor? Does the unit have a leak? Does the unit fail in receiving electricity? Does the unit cool improperly? These questions would really help in finding the problem. The answers that can be formulated by the technician based on her/his observations can expedite repair time.

Preparing the way to your ac unit.

This means that you have to clear the walkway that leads to you air condition unit. It might be placed in the most hidden corner of your house. It might also be with the other furniture or items in the yard. Regardless of its location, you have to make sure that the technician will have an easy access. Clear any obstructions. They consume the time of the technician. The time could have been used for necessary repairs will be wasted to cleaning the surroundings if those obstructions will still be present.

Checking the brand and unit number of the ac

An important practice among repairmen in fixing ac units is to identify its model no. and brand. In this manner, they will have a better understanding of the machine’s skeleton and also its schematics. In return, the guys can search for the correct spare parts that should go along with the unit itself.

Identifying age of the ac unit

As responsible homeowners, it’s best to know first age of the ac unit you have before you decide to avail some serious air condition repair. The critical age would be +15 years old. If your ac has already reached that age, it’s best to have it replaced. Would this investment be worth it? We’d say “yes”. Your future self will thank you for this as repairing it would do big damage for your wallet in the future. If the ac however, hasn’t yet reached that age, do an inquiry on its repairing and replacing costs. If repair is pricier than the replacement, we suggest to stick with the former than the latter. Aside from price check, you can follow this general rule that repair technicians rely when it comes to this matter- get the product of repair cost and ac unit’s age.
