HVAC Repairs

Refrigerant Refill

Maintaining proper refrigerant levels is crucial for an HVAC system’s efficiency. However, handling refrigerant requires specialized training and equipment due to its hazardous nature. Only certified technicians should perform refrigerant refills, ensuring safe and environmentally responsible practices.

Electrical Component Repairs

HVAC systems involve complex electrical components and wiring. Attempting to repair or replace these components without the right expertise can lead to electrocution or damage to the system. Leave electrical repairs to licensed professionals who understand the intricacies of HVAC wiring.

Gas Line Repairs

Gas-powered HVAC systems involve gas lines that pose significant risks. A gas leak can lead to fire, explosions or even carbon monoxide poisoning. If you suspect a gas leak, immediately evacuate your home and call a professional HVAC technician or your gas provider.

Compressor Replacement

The compressor is the heart of an air conditioning system. Replacing it requires specialized tools and knowledge. Incorrect installation can lead to system inefficiency or complete breakdown. Professionals are equipped to handle compressor replacements safely and effectively.
