Don’t hesitate, because in a place like Birmingham where we use our AC units more than than average, repairs will only get more costly over time. We never suggest seeing if a problem will go away on it’s own. But it is helpful to know some warning signs. According to’s AC research, a few of the most common AC repairs include:

  • Leaking refrigerant
  • Dirty coils and filters (resulting from inadaquete maintenance)
  • Sensor issues

Additionally, a few of the common warning signs include:

  • Thermostat reading incorrectly
  • Higher than usual energy bill
  • Unit turns off and on erratically

If you have any of these warning signs or suspect another problem, give us a call; better to repair a small problem now than a big one later.

The most expensive "repair" that any air conditioner may need is an early replacement. The best way to avoid this is to arrange for routine maintenance each spring from HVAC professionals.

Our technicians are glad to assist you with finding the right new AC system to take the place of an old one. For fast, professional, and affordable AC replacement in Birmingham, contact us today.

Geothermal heat pumps use the stable temperature of the earth below the frost line as a medium for heat exchange. These systems offer fantastic energy savings and unmatched service lifespans. But, while they offer incredibler reliablity, when something does need to be looked at, you should trust trained experts to diagnose and repair your geothermal system. Let our technicians tell you more about the possibilities.
  • Heat Pump Services: An option you have for cooling your home is to install a heat pump, which uses the technology similar to an air conditioner to also provide energy–efficient heating whenever you need it. With only a single adjustment to the thermostat, you can switch the heat pump from cooling mode to heating mode and back. Whether you want to replace your current unit or you need a repair on your heat pump unit, give our pros a call.
  • Packaged HVAC Unit Services: Conventional air conditioners and heat pumps are split units that have an outdoor and indoor cabinet. But if you’re looking for an alternative that uses less space in your house, consider a packaged unit. Popular in commercial buildings, packaged units house the condenser and the evaporator in a single outdoor cabinet. Give us a call if you think a packaged HVAC unit is ideal for your house, or if your current packaged HVAC unit needs a tune up or repair.
