What To Look For In An AC Emergency Repair Service


When summer Jacksonville temperatures peak, households rely on air conditioning units for comfort and clean, cool, safe air circulation. A poorly functioning AC unit can cause grief, discomfort, and inflated bills. 

If you find yourself with an AC unit in need of emergency repairs, it’s advisable not to call just any handyman, with a little experience. What may initially seem like a good deal and a chance to save money may turn into repairs performed hastily, by an inexperienced handyman, with the likelihood you’ll have to call for repairs again sooner than you expected.

The worst-case scenario is an unwelcome breakdown when you need your AC unit most. It is best to contact a qualified service professional.

If your AC unit is malfunctioning, call a repair service immediately and avoid it turning into an emergency. However, if you do find yourself faced with an emergency, and in need of emergency AC repair services, here is what you should look for in a professional AC emergency repair service.

Check Their Reputation

These days it’s easy enough to find useful information to help you choose the right services. Customer reviews speak loud and clear about the level of service and competence of a company.

When you let people into your home, you want skilled professionals that respect your home and leave it clean when the job is done. Look for punctuality, transparency, and availability to assist you in the shortest time possible.

How Much Experience Do They Have

Emergency repairs can get rather complex with HVAC equipment. A badly performed repair job could compromise the air quality in your home, with costly frequent repairs and inflated bills.

Safety is also a serious consideration. A company with decades of experience and skilled certified technicians will also have your safety in mind. Look for a professional emergency repair service that is insured, so should there be an accident, you don’t incur additional costs. 

What Services Do They Offer?

Not all AC emergency repair services are the same. There comes a time for any old AC unit to be replaced, instead of repaired. Frequent repairs can become costly over time, with the added discomfort of repeated malfunctions or breakdowns.

If you hire a company that only provides repairs, there’s a chance they may not tell you when it would be best to do an AC upgrade than another repair. Look for a company that offers full services and can cover your needs adequately.

Look for a company with a good reputation, who is going, to be transparent with you about your options and can provide all of the services you may need, repairs, maintenance, or installations. 

Do They Offer 24-Hour Services?

Needless to say, no emergency happens at a convenient time and neither do AC unit emergencies. When looking for a repair service make sure they provide 24-hour services and are available to repair or replace your AC unit as soon as possible, to reduce discomfort, especially if you have children or elderly ones living at home.

I will be recommending J&W to my friends and family. They were very professional and on time. Did a very well job in... a quality manner. Dustin, Mark, and Robert. Worked very well together and was in and out with no cleanup for me to do. Thanks so much for getting my home back to a cool environment.read more

Just had an entirely new, full HVAC install done at our old house in Riverside, which was a fairly big job. Brian and... Will did the installation, and were awesome. There was going to be issues leveling the air handler in the attic, so they moved it to a new spot and hung it instead, getting new parts/changing the plan on the fly. We're much happier with this new setup and location of the air handler. I really appreciated this, their professionalism/thoroughness, and flexibility. Brian and Will worked super-hard, and double-checked everything once the job was done. Would use this company again.read more

Two installers here early this morning. Worked all day. Very professional, extremely well mannered and quick to answer... all my questions. They are Dustin and Robert. Both men went above just installing my new unit, they were personable and knowledgeable in what they were doing. I was surprised when I found out these two hadn't been working that long together. They worked extremely well together. I highly recommend this two men.read more

A snake crawled into my outdoor condenser and stopped my 16 year old Trane last week on Thursday. The power surge took... out my blower unit circuit board and the motor. I called J&W and Rob was over within two hours of my call. I was spec'd a new York 17 seer system and it was up and running on Monday. Technicians Jason and Brian arrived promptly and every facet of the installation was thorough. When completed, I would not of even known they were there except they left my garage cleaner! Thanks J&W!read more
