Why can it take so long?

Why can it take so long?

Scheduling with your local HVAC company
It is officially Summer, with warmer days (and nights). Spending more time at the pool. You want to be cool when you come indoors from the pool, however, you find your unit not working. Therefore, you call your HVAC company only to find their schedule is full.  That last part might not be on the list of anyone looking forward to summertime, but it’s accurate. You may be asking, Why can it take so long? 
Most people tend to not think about their HVAC, evaporative cooler, heat pumps, or ductless split units until they aren’t working. The first thing they think of is let’s call the HVAC company! Well…as I said most people don’t think about their units until something is wrong. In the same way with rising temperatures, air conditioning units tend to break down as they work harder to cool homes. 
For one thing, this means long busy days for techs who are working in the hot temperatures to fix or replace units. This results in longer wait times for the air conditioner to be repaired or replaced.

Home maintenance customers can fall victim to this surge in broken A/C units, too! Although it can be frustrating for a homeowner to not have their air conditioner fixed on the same day they call in for service, it’s all part of the season. Here’s why you may not get same-day service for your HVAC unit and what you can do.

HVAC companies schedule, by area, by need (if your unit is on the roof we may need to get there first thing in the morning for the safety of our technicians, installations of unit replacements take a day maybe two that will fill up the schedule also. Their appointments include people who have already called and scheduled appointments for a diagnosis. Sometimes technicians must return to homes the tech has already visited that need an AC repair or full replacement.

When scheduling our technicians, we plan ahead and make sure that if in a certain area, on a certain day, we maximize the number of air conditioning units they can repair in a day. (It allows us to provide service to more customers and is much more effective to drive a few blocks to several different houses than to spend an hour driving back and forth between cities to repair or diagnose two air conditioning units.)

With our Pre-paid maintenance agreement customers, we generally plan for those calls months in advance. This is just another benefit we offer to our maintenance clientele. When emergencies, should arise. If the client in question is elderly, infirm, or has young children, we do our best to squeeze them into our already busy schedules. In the same way, we know heat can play a devastating role for these people.
