Austin A/C Repair

Austin air conditioning has to put up with some uncommon hardships. Summers that can see triple digits for weeks on end, springs and autumns that simply won't stay cool enough to do without your central air, and a few months of winter and rain that can throw rust and mechanical dust into the works. Essentially, it's like running your car on the highway for prolonged periods of time at a high speed, then locking it up in the garage for four months. Once you've put a few miles on your air conditioner, repair is inevitable. Expectedly, air conditioning repair in Austin is one of the most common service requests we receive from central Texas here at HomeAdvisor.

Identifying Problems
You might want to tackle your own air conditioning repair, but you may not know where to start or what needs fixing. Much like a doctor will tell you, the treatment is easy once the correct diagnosis is made. Warm air or no air can be a problem with the air condensing unit, a refrigerant leak, or a problem with the filter, just to name a few. A problem with the thermostat can also lead to any number of problems, both electrical and mechanical. Moreover, duct and vent problems can lead to foul-smelling air, poor air quality, and further problems with your air conditioning.

Without intimate knowledge of your air conditioning system, even a generally handy homeowner may be well out of his or her league. In fact, though professionals may have a hunch when you talk to them on the phone, there's a good chance only a physical inspection of your air conditioning system will verify the cause of your cooling problems.

Repair Contractors
You might be tempted to take on the nuts and bolts of your air conditioner. This is by no means a bad idea, as catching debris that's blocked your condensing unit and other surface repairs can be invaluable skills for maintaining your air conditioner. The most important thing you can do to simplify air conditioning repair is timely maintenance. Do not, do not, do not wait until the first 90 degree day to fire up your air conditioner. Wait until the first day of hot weather and you may very well find air conditioning companies are unable to get to your home right away.

By running your air conditioning for an hour or so shortly before you expect to fire it up for the season, you can save yourself several headaches and possibly even a few bucks if a repair is necessary. Plus, if you're not fighting your fellow Austinites for service, you may be able to talk to multiple contractors and use the same care as any other home improvement in selecting the contractor you hire.

Cost of Air Conditioning Repair
The cost of air conditioning repair in Austin, like anywhere in the country, can range from the simple fee of showing up and cleaning out and reattaching a hose to major repair on an air compressing unit. The days of contractors showing up and giving you a freebie for insignificant repairs are all but over, even in the Friendship State. The most basic repairs may cost $50-$100, and just to avoid any frustration, you should ask about fees for having a service professional show up at your home. Significant problems with air compressors and other major components of your central air can range up to $1,000 or more. When this happens, you may need to evaluate the age and overall condition of your AC unit to see if it's time to have it completely replaced. Many problems fall somewhere between these two extremes, and are all likely to resemble the average cost of $350 for Austin air conditioning repair.
