The professionals at Eyman Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning share their decades of experience about seasonal inspections and other A/C comfort issues.
Why get your air conditioning unit checked now?
Spring is the best time to make sure it’s operational and charged for the hot months ahead. Save yourself time and money by not making emergency calls because your air conditioner won’t cool. Also, an inspection ensures no little critters made a home inside your air conditioning unit over the winter.
What are the top three problems you find when you do an inspection?
- Dirty outside coil
- Low on refrigerant
- Bad motor or capacitor
What are some things homeowners should never try to fix on their A/C unit?
Properly washing a condensing unit must be done from inside the unit. This means you remove the top and the sides. A homeowner cannot easily do this.
What deal does Eyman offer when we check someone’s air conditioner before the season starts?
The cost is $189 plus tax. And we conduct a 22-point, full inspection when we come out to the homeowner’s residence.
On average, how often do air conditioning units have to be replaced?
The national average lifespan for an A/C unit or heat pump is 12 to 15 years.
Is there one unit that’s especially economical?
Outside units have to match the existing furnace to achieve the best overall ratings. This is important when you decide which outside unit to choose.
Anything else should customers know?
Most companies will offer a lower charge for an inspection only to up charge you for a proper cleaning and evaluation, which means you actually end up paying way more than you expect. That’s not how we do business.
