My AC Compressor is Dead. Can I Replace it in Prescott AZ? Ask Rich, Owner of Prescott Air Conditioning.

Is your AC compressor in Prescott Dead? Contact Prescott Air Conditioning today

I have a dead Air Conditioning Compressor. Can I have it replaced in Prescott, Az? Rich Severns, owner of Prescott Air Conditioning, has some answers.

First and foremost, Is it really dead? Rich says, "I have seen so many times, where the AC compressor is not actually bad. (Last year [2016], Rich Severns, Owner of Prescott Air Conditioning was called out to 38 different job sites for a second opinion where the customer was told they needed a new unit because of a dead compressor. He repaired 34 of the 38 for under $400 and they are still running today. The other four where dead, "I can't fix dead" Rich says. The following is information Rich provides on air conditioning repair in Prescott.


The next questions are:

  • How old is your HVAC unit? As a general rule of thumb, if the AC unit is past half of it's life expectancy, we don't install a new compressor. (However, he has done compressors on units older than half. Average life is 14 years-many last 20 years easy and he has repaired 28 year old units when money was not available to replace the equipment.)

  • Is it in decent shape?

  • Is it rusted out?

  • Losing refrigerant?

  • Were you happy with it's performance when it was functioning?

  • If we can satisfy these criteria, you may be a candidate for a new compressor.


Next:

Do you have $5,000.00 to $8,000.00 dollars to replace your AC equipment? (Most people do not). In this case, Rich can repair your HVAC condenser in order to restore your comfort. (Who can properly perform their daily activities {with lack of sleep from a hot summer night} without cooling from their air conditioning compressor in Prescott AZ?). Now, knowing there may be just a few years left for your AC, one can start to plan ahead and save their "sheckles" for a new system.

There are many schools of thought on when to replace a Prescott, AZ AC unit or just repair it. "Whatever you do", says Rich with Prescott Air Conditioning, "get a second opinion. Is your AC equipment really bad? Or, is the problem merely a couple of starting components (like a capacitor)?" Often, new starting components can revive an HVAC compressor (typically at a cost of about $400) and provide many years of continued service. "This is much better than replacing a compressor (typically about $1,800-$2,200) and much better than a whole new system (typically $5,000-$8,000).

When you call for air conditioning repair or service in Prescott, AZ, Rich says, "Think carefully about who you call. You'll get one of three types showing up at your door: a salesman - who'll want to sell you all new equipment, a technician - who'll want to sell you expensive parts or an installer - who'll not really know what to do. What you want is an experienced, honest technician - who'll treat your air conditioner like it's his own, not sell you parts you don't need and who will charge you a fair price."

Rich Severns has been repairing AC units & installing compressors for over 32 years. He personally goes to every call and performs all his own work. Consider a consultation with Prescott Air Conditioning to save money and have your AC compressor fixed and air conditioning repair in Prescott done right.

5 out of 5 stars Rich and Brenda showed up within an hour of us contacting them, assessed the problem with our furnace, had the broken part on hand (!!! It's a 26 year old furnace!!!). They were extremely friendly, professional, explanatory and obviously care about the work they do. We had quite a few problems, and the 2 other HVAC folks said "just replace the thing" and took a service fee. While Rich tended to agree that it needs replacing, he made sure he got the unit working, inspected and was confident in its safety as a stop gap. Could not recommend them more. It's quite rare to get such thorough, professional.

5 out of 5 stars Brenda and Rich were very helpful. I called and left a message at 10 am on a Saturday, they called back an hour later, and we had our ac up and running by noon that day. Fast, friendly, easy to schedule and reasonably priced. As a local in Prescott I highly recommend them.
