I grew up most of my life not having an air conditioner in the home I lived in. As a kid our options to cool off or to open the window, drink some cold water or maybe to sit in the basement. Now that I am older however I find that it is difficult to live without air conditioning. I get hot very easily and when I am hot and uncomfortable I get irritable. Just ask my husband what my mood is like whenever the air conditioner is turned off on a hot and humid night. Press yet, if you years ago our AC unit broke during the middle of a heat wave. These were some of the hottest temperatures on record and one day we came home from work to our house and it felt like a sauna. I can distinctly remember that day and the first thing I did was rent to the phone and called up a heating and air conditioning repair company. The company I called was The AC Doctors and they were able to send out a technician to survey the machine that day. It’s pretty incredible to think that they were able to respond that quickly to my problem. Within just a few hours a service man from the company was in our backyard taking the cover off our AC to do some troubleshooting. He found that the fan wasn’t turning because of some ball bearings that had burned out. This was due to years of heavy use and something that happens quite commonly to AC units apparently.
The estimate he gave us was free and since it was so comprehensive and easy to understand we decided to have him come out the following day to fix it. He said that instead of simply just fixing the blades of the AC unit he could perform what he called building science on our house. This is an in depth study to see how the airflow in our house kept us cool or warm. Apparently air conditioning repair only helps so much because if you are having any efficient airflow you may still experience uncomfortable temperatures in your house. We really enjoyed the service man and even made him some lemonade to have while he was working. Watching him use the duct blaster was particularly interesting because it forced air through our fence so he could see where there was leakage. He said that many people were surprised to learn that they had a leak in their ducks which of course means you lose hot air or cold air somewhere that it can’t be felt. I was surprised that AC and heating repair could be so scientific.
Overall I couldn’t have been happier with how quickly The AC Doctors responded to our plight. For anyone that may need air conditioning repair or upgrades I would absolutely recommend you give them a call. When I went on their website I noticed that they also perform something called geothermal heating with ground source pumps. This is basically a procedure where they take the constant and steady temperature of the earth and funnel that into your home to help cool large rooms without using much energy.
