It’s no secret—Texas gets HOT in the summer! When June, July, and August roll around, your air conditioning unit works extra hard to help you stay cool. However, when a machine malfunctions due to overheating, you want it fixed as soon as possible.
If your AC isn’t working, it can be tough to get timely AC repair service, especially during the summer months. According to KWTX News 10, “Wait times to get air conditioners repaired in Central Texas can take up to three days.”
The summer months are the busiest time of year for HVAC service technicians working to keep homes safe and comfortable. If your AC goes down in the middle of summer, don’t expect same day repair from most HVAC companies.
It’s the same with air conditioning repair in Houston and surrounding areas. Most companies are overwhelmed with repair requests because so many AC units malfunction in the summer heat. It’s important to find an HVAC service company that will work hard for you.
Richmond’s Air offers flexible hours Monday through Saturday from 7AM-9PM, and even emergency services. If you find yourself getting overheated in your home, don’t hesitate to contact us.
