Picture this, you are out on your deck or patio soaking in the sun rays with your family and friends at a BBQ you just put on and all of a sudden you hear a loud engine type noise coming from your trusty air conditioner. You take a quick look at it to see if it’s because all the pollen build up on the outside again but this type it is, it’s that time, you need it repaired. You might ask yourself, how can I tell if it requires a repair or simply just a small tune up, the problem is you can’t usually but here are some quick things to look for that may require professional help.

If you choose STAR for your air conditioning repair, you are choosing a service company that has been serving Edmonton and outer areas for over 40 years. Businesses don’t stay around that long anymore unless they truly provide the value that they promise and we strongly feel that we are that company. It is with that experience that we know we can get your air conditioner back to running like clock work and if not we will be as honest as we can about a possible replacement.
Think of the air conditioner as a vehicle instead, every 6000 kilometers it is suggested that you go in for an oil change and a tune up. The purpose of the tune up is to ensure the vehicle’s oil is replaced, the tires are full of air, the filters clean enough, and on and on. However as your vehicle adds the kilometers of the years, tune-ups may not cut it anymore as the brake pads may be gone now or the transmission starts to fail. The difference between these two is that tune-up is preventative maintenance but also the optimization of peak performance where as a repair is simply fixing something that is broken and impeding on how the unit is working.
You might ask yourself, how can I tell the difference. It really quite simple, we offer information on the what is involved in a tune up which should be considered once a year if not every second year. A repair will be required most likely if your air conditioner is making some weird sounds, smell funny or is vibrating all the time while it’s running.
There comes a point when repairing the air conditioner is no longer a viable solution and the only solution is to simply replace it. We are well aware that this can be a big issue for home owners as it is a fairly big financial investment to consider for any family. To combat that we have partnered with a company called SNAP Financial whose sole purpose is to help out families that are not a position to afford a brand new air conditioner. They have come up with a financing plan that can allow you to purchase a brand new AC for as little as $42/month. If this is something of interest for you, simply give us a call or fill out the form above so one of our staff can talk to you about the process and how it all works.
As you wrap your head around this decision we want you to know as much as possible so you can make the most informed decision possible.
Typically air conditioners that are 10 years or older are significantly less efficient than the new air conditioners are. Newer models almost always cost far less to operate and maintain, never mind work for more efficiently.
Almost every AC Unit that we carry offers a 10-year parts and labor warranty which gives you the confidence and peace of mind that a new unit will last you easily at 10 years.
The size and sound do play a part as well as the new model or normally smaller and far less noisy.
If you are in the market for a new Air Conditioner or are in need of a repair, please don’t hesitate to call us as we would love the opportunity to provide you a solution that works functionally and financially.
