Air Conditioning Repairs We Handle

It is important to have your air conditioner evaluated by a qualified technician regularly. We recommend getting your unit checked once a year for maintenance purposes. Periodically, you will need to have disposable filters replaced or clean permanent ones. It is especially important to do regular repairs in Tucson where the intense summer heat causes extra wear and tear to your cooling system. Our technicians will inspect your system, identify the problem, and transparently explain your options. There are many problems that can cause your AC to malfunction. For example, you may have a broken thermostat or sensor, or the motor or compressor may have failed. You may also have several issues at once such as a dirty evaporator or leaking refrigerant. Whatever the issue you are dealing with, our experienced technicians will quickly identify the problem and help you make the best decision going forward.

Air Conditioning Service Repairs

There are a number of issues that require air conditioning repair. For example, a dirty filter will not pull are correctly through the intake. This causes the AC system to work harder than it should. Over time, prolonged use of the AC without a filter change can lead to a breakdown. Another common AC repair problem is dusty or dirty AC Coils. This, in turn, leads to your unit overheating due to inadequate ventilation on parts inside of the AC unit. Lastly, another reason for your AC to go out is due to a malfunctioning thermostat. The thermostat is what allows your unit to read the ambient air temperature. Knowing this information is vital to the circuitry of the computer so that your unit knows when to switch on and off.  Fortunately, at Southern Comfort, we have the tools and expertise to quickly identify and correct all your AC repairs. Plus, we offer the best home AC repair costs, with each job estimate communicated to you before we get to work!

Energy Efficient Air Conditioners

When you are ready to purchase and install a new AC unit, you want to have energy efficiency in mind. Most households spend over 50% of energy costs on heating and air conditioning! And, as you have experienced, AC use through the Tucson summer uses even more energy. But there’s good news! Air conditioning technology continues to improve each year. Carrier AC units are rated as the best in both energy efficiency and power. Why not have your cake and eat it too? When we work with you on your AC, whether for a new install or for repairs, we always evaluate the energy efficiency of your home’s system. We know how to optimize energy efficiency with new systems and how to tune-up older units to keep energy costs down and cool air up!

An AC Unit Specifically for Intense Summers

The Carrier brand Air Conditioners top the charts for energy efficiency–especially for regions with lots of heat. When we started Southern Comfort Heating & Air Conditioning, we wanted to use the best AC unit for Tuncsonans. That means a high Energy Efficiency Rating or EER. Carrier’s newest Infinity AC units make the top ten list for energy efficiency with EER ratings of 16–extremely high! Not only are these units great for lowering your energy bill, but they keep your home consistently cool. Don’t settle for a unit that will burn out after 5 or even 10 years, choose the one that will last and keep energy costs down.

New Air Conditioner Sizing

One of the first steps when considering a new AC install is what size unit you need. At Southern Comfort Heating & Air Conditioning, we are experienced at calculating the optimal size to efficiently cool your home. You want a big enough unit to uniformly cool your whole home, but you don’t want one that’s too big as it will be more expensive and could be less energy efficient. You will want a qualified HVAC company to help you select a unit to suit your needs. A/C units are measured in tons, which refers to the amount of heat they can remove from a home in one hour. For example, a one-ton unit can remove 12,000 British thermal units (BTUs), while a four-ton system will remove 48,000. So a bigger house requires a bigger unit with more cooling power.

Best Pricing for a New Air Conditioner

There are several factors impacting the cost of a new AC unit. First, the price of the unit itself. AC units run from as low as $3,000 up to about $10,000 depending on the size. However, it is important to consider the quality of the unit you choose. Carrier has consistently rated at the top of consumer reports for quality and longevity. A high-quality system should last up to about 15 years under ideal circumstances. But less sturdy systems are likely to burn out much more rapidly. The other major consideration for the cost is labor. At Southern Comfort, we offer a fair flat rate with no hidden costs. We always offer free estimates before we get to work so feel free to compare our rates. You’ll find that we offer the best value with the best system to last you for years without a hitch.
