Alexandria Air Conditioning Tips: How Regular Maintenance & AC Service Can Save You Money

Having a cozy bedroom conducive to sleep can be done by cleaning it up, vacuuming, and ensuring proper ventilation.

Air conditioning problems may arise and cause electricity bills to shoot up.

This is something you want to avoid, of course, and you can by following the advice of a professional Alexandria air conditioning contractor.

If your Alexandria air conditioning unit begins to malfunction, it may be time to have it professionally serviced.

Among the common problems encountered by most homeowners is that the air coming out of the air conditioning unit does not feel as cold as they want it to be.

In some cases, the refrigerant may need recharging.

Shelling out a few bucks for the system recharge can be worth it.

The trained Alexandria air conditioning professional will not only be able to check the refrigerant but also test for leakage, belts for tightness, and service the motor.

While the homeowner can care for his/her air conditioning unit by keeping it covered/protected from debris and the elements (and minimizing dirt from getting near the condenser unit), basic maintenance checks by a trained Alexandria heating and air conditioning technician are essential.

It also pays to get a quality brand of room air conditioning unit, and to choose one with a capability suited to the size of the room where it will be installed.

Consider also how many heat-generating appliances there are in the room.

A reputable Alexandria air conditioning contractor can help do the math and recommend the right system for your needs.

A contractor can also suggest measures to help improve insulation.

The homeowner, for his/her part, can opt for an energy-efficient air conditioning unit and make sure that the flow of air emanating from the aircon unit is not obstructed by furniture, drapes, and other home items.

Inadequate maintenance will lead to poor functioning or other air conditioning problems.

The ducts need to be airtight. Detecting and rectifying duct leaks can best be done by a competent professional service technician with test equipment.

The service technician will also be able to handle the task of cleaning dirty filters and checking if the evaporator coils are clogged.

Draw up a list of possible contractors and zero in on one who will not only help you size up the most suitable air conditioning unit for your needs but also render proper maintenance checks.

You wouldn’t want to get an inferior quality air conditioning unit that costs very cheap but will entail huge repair costs.

Moreover, choosing a technician that doesn’t have adequate training or takes shortcuts can entail added costs.

Indeed, it’s very important to keep your air conditioning unit humming nicely and operating optimally.

Getting a reliable Alexandria air conditioning contractor can help prevent air conditioning problems that may surface.

“Service was outstanding from the time of arrival which you could track arrival time live on a website link they send you so you know when they will arrive. Technical knowledge was very high, quick and efficient Kyle and his partner both handled the install of a Sensi Predict as if it was a walk in the park. I highly recommend Kyle from Nice Heating & Air for all HVAC issues and for new installs, him and his team are an amazing company and will think of them first if any issues arise in the future for sure....”

“Rolando Medrano was very professional and followed the CDC protocol of 6 feet social distance and had a mask and put disposable shoe covers before entering the house. He made sure to address all of our issues and provided answers for all our questions. He came on time and called before he came to update on timing and his status! He was a great help!”

Mike Richardson.

“Highly recommend Nice Home Services for your HVAC needs. Have been member of their annual maintenance plan for three years now and been extremely pleased with their approach to business. They are professional, knowledgeable, and relatable. The service specialists take their time to fully diagnose the issue and explain the situation in a way that is easy to understand. Never had an instance where they try to push product and instead look for ways to recommend how to save you money. Need anything done on your home's HVAC, call the folks at Nice Home Services and know you're making the right choice.”

Richard Nowinski.

“Dionte and his helper (Josh) did a superb job with the installation. The result is both functional and as cosmetically pleasing as the ideal water heater installation can be. They were VERY careful moving the old one out and the new one in so as to assure no damage was initiated neither to the heater nor to our dwelling. He explained his intended design prior to execution and executed it flawlessly. This was followed by a comprehensive explanation of the functional options available through the control panel and Ipad app. Cleanup at conclusion of the install was appropriate and comprehensive. This team represented both Nice Heating and Rheem VERY positively!”

Kimberly Mason.

“I purchased my HVAC unit a year ago along with a Cozy Club maintenance plan. It's been running great and the customer service team is always quick to respond to questions. Today Rolando M. came by for the maintenance check and, as usual, he was neat, professional and maintained the COVID rules. He was also very nice, living up to the company name. I'm very happy with my experience with Nice.”

N. England.

“I can't speak highly enough of this company. I requested an appointment, and it was scheduled for the next day. The technician was polite, honest, and a pure delight to work with. He didn't try to overcharge or tell me to replace something I didn't need to. He made service recommendations that were in line with industry standard prices so I could make an informed decision as he went about his service visit. Would recommend and will be using them again in the future. ”
