Air Conditioning Repair
If your air conditioner breaks down in the middle of summer you can look forward to hot, sticky, miserable conditions. When this happens, you need air conditioning repair fast. Extreme temperatures can even be dangerous, especially to the elderly. A variety of problems can necessitate air conditioner repair: your thermostat or sensor is not working correctly, or the motor or compressor may have failed; a dirty filter or evaporator could also cause problems; or you may be low on refrigerant.
It’s important to have an experienced and trustworthy air conditioning repair technician examine your system; improper care—adding the wrong refrigerant, failing to fix a leak or other errors – can create even more problems. The professionals at Del Rio will make sure the job is done right. We will inspect your system, diagnose what went wrong, and thoroughly explain what your options are. A simple cleaning may get your unit back up and running, but you may need to replace a part. Instead of repair, it might make more sense to consider replacement of the air conditioner. If purchasing a new unit is the best solution, our technicians will help you understand your options in choosing the right size for your home that best fits your lifestyle. Our experts will advise you on the systems most appropriate for your needs and the layout of your home. Options may include:
- Central air, often the best choice for cooling your whole home.
- Room units, which may be your best bet if you only need a room or two chilled.
- A mini split system, which separates the outdoor compressor and condenser from the indoor component, and may be appropriate if your home is not already equipped with proper duct work.
- Evaporative coolers, which use evaporated water to cool down air and work best in arid climates.
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that heating and cooling accounts for nearly 50 percent of the average household’s energy use.

Remember, many air conditioning problems are caused by improper installation, but our top-notch service ensures that your unit is set up correctly, the first time.
