Washington DC A/C Repair

When running popular and efficiently, having an air conditioning system can be a great benefit in the summertime. However, for some homeowners in and around Washington DC, air conditioning repair is a task that is long overdue. A/C that isn't running at full efficiency costs you comfort as well as money; if your air conditioning system has seen better days, there are several things to consider that may alleviate the problem!

DIY Air Conditioning Repair
Though the winters can be cold and snowy, DC residents know all too well that the summers can be blistering! When the heat begins creeping into your home and you?re A/C is not performing up to snuff, it is easy to be tempted to start tinkering a little yourself. Be careful, however! Air conditioning systems can be very complex, and if you are not well versed in how to fix one, there's a good chance that you might make the problem even worse! Small tasks like changing the air filter and making sure that the outside condenser is not blocked by leaves or debris are perfectly acceptable and a good idea, but if you open up your condenser and realize you have little knowledge of its components, it's time to call in a professional.

Professional Air Conditioner Repair
For most of us, a malfunctioning A/C system is grounds for calling in a specialist. Though prices can vary dramatically when it comes to air conditioning repair, Washington DC homeowners generally see prices in the $100 to $900 range, with many jobs falling in between $200 and $500. When your cooling bills are piling up because of an A/C malfunction, knowing that a fix is usually less than $1,000 away makes monetary sense; once the job is finished, you'll reduce your monthly bills AND have a more comfortable environment!

Repair vs. Replacement
In most cases, air conditioning systems that have been around for decades are far less efficient and require many more repairs than a system installed in the past 5 years. If your air conditioning is well beyond its prime, the repair costs can pile up quickly, making replacement a better option, however, DC homeowners often pay over $5,000 to install a new system (and some pay upwards of $10,000!), so it is a good idea to make sure that your existing system is definitely not worth repairing before you make the decision to replace it!

Ways to Enhance Your A/C
Sometimes, the A/C unit that is already in place is simply too weak to effectively cool you home, even if it is running well. This problem can generally be nipped in the bud by talking to a professional before the unit is purchased to make sure it is powerful enough, but if you purchased your home with an insufficient system already in place, enhancements like adding weather stripping, upgrading insulation, and filling in gaps around windows and doors can make a difference in how comfortable your house feels. Each of these tasks carries its own price, but if you live in an older home, enhancements like these might make a lot of sense not just during the cooling season, but in the winter time, as well!

    Comment: Upon opening a section of drywall I discovered that there is a vent in the ceiling/wall that has an opening. I would like to have it repaired as well as adding proper installation in that area. I would like to also see about enlarging an existing vent, replacing thermostat with a smart thermostat (already purchased) and discuss possibly moving the thermostat to a different location.
