Air Conditioning Repair And Maintenance In Chandler, Arizona
Anyone who’s lived in Chandler, Arizona for any stretch of time knows the importance of staying cool during the all-year-long-like summer season. By now you and your family are masters at staying cool, if not you’ve been burnt to a crisp!
All joking aside, even the hardiest of air conditioning units can fail on the hottest of days when temperatures reach into the blistering three digits.
Wherever you live in the Chandler area, your AC system will eventually need maintenance, repair or replacement if you and your family want to stay cool.
Many of the common AC complaints we receive at Antrim Air are easily resolved and even affordable to repair. The challenge is keeping up on routine maintenance. Because our lives are hectic and we’re constantly looking for ways to pack more hours into a day, regular maintenance for an air conditioning system may be the farthest thing from our minds.
Unfortunately, neglecting routine maintenance can have costly consequences that require expensive repairs or even the entire replacement of an AC unit. Why put a damper on your summer fun when it can be avoided entirely?
Who We Are and About Us
Antrim Air was founded in 2010 after our founders, Anthony Gilmore and Talitha Gilmore recognized the growing need for an AC repair center that the residents of Chandler could learn from and trust to come out and take care of their AC or HVAC units. Anthony combined his 18 years of hands-on technical experience with Talitha’s business know-how to create a company Chandler has been relying on since 2010 to keep homes cool.
FUN FACT: Our company name was chosen based on our Irish ancestry. Antrim is a small county based in Ireland!
Most importantly, we’re Arizona natives who know how harsh the climate can be on its residents. The desert atmosphere boasts year-round summer-like temperatures, but the desert is unmerciful if you don’t know how to keep your home and vehicles cool.
Our company was founded in an effort to avoid AC disasters and if and when they do occur, help restore proper function with AC repair Chandler AZ.
When we’re not busy ensuring Chandler natives are staying cool, we’re showing our thanks to the local Veterans and nonprofit organizations of the community.

Why We’re The Better Choice!
At Antrim Air, we believe in providing the most value for less. During our checkups, we’ll ensure your condensate lines are free of debris, and no, this courtesy check will not show up on your repair/maintenance bill as an unexpected fee because it’s free!
Checking your condensate lines is a preventive measure, which will help detect and or prevent any condensation leaks during days where temperatures reach three digits. Our competitors typically charge additional fees for this simple-to-perform procedure. Not us! Many of the common problems experienced with air conditioning units can be prevented with this inspection.
However, it’s important to understand not all problems can be detected or prevented before they actually occur. We’ll do our best, but moving mechanical parts will eventually fail and need to be repaired or replaced.

Recommended Air Conditioning Services
Just like vehicles, air conditioner and HVAC units require regular maintenance to keep things running smoothly. Normally a regular annual inspection and maintenance is recommended for most AC units, but if you’re unsure, for any reason, the owner’s manual should be able to shed light on the matter.
We personally recommend all Chandler residents have their air conditioners inspected and maintained annually, and maybe even more regularly due to the fact that we rely on our air conditioniers more than most other states.
If you’re unsure about the best time to have your unit serviced, don’t hesitate to call us! We can determine the best course of action for you without pressuring you into purchasing our services. We genuinely want to help!

Why Regular HVAC Maintenance Is a Must
An HVAC system is one of those few investments people hesitate on before spending, but don’t realize the importance of their investment until later. At Antrim Air, we believe the owner should come prepared willing to invest twice. The first investment is in a quality HVAC system, and the second investment is maintenance which can be reduced significantly, if proper procedures are followed.
So long as your HVAC is functioning properly, you can rely on coming home to a cool and comfortable dwelling year round. If you fail to do your homework properly and/or neglect routine maintenance, you’ll more than likely find yourself comparing the interior of your home to the humid deserts of Arizona; hot and unpleasant, if you don’t have a cool place to retreat to.
Some of the benefits you may experience include but are not limited to:
Reduced Utility Bills
Just about everyone is eager to save money when given the opportunity to do so. The pocketed money you save during annual maintenance can be used for other important things. An HVAC unit that runs efficiently means you as the homeowner don’t have to sweat it when the electricity bill makes its appearance in the mail. We can think of a hundred different, more productive and fun ways to spend the money you saved on repair or air conditioner replacement, how about you?
Healthy Air is Happy Air!
A properly maintained unit will not only keep you sane during the hottest of days, but if the filters are replaced and maintained regularly, the air quality in your home will speak for itself. Clean filters and coils are crucial to ensuring quality air for your entire family. Dirty filters provide the perfect breeding grounds for bacteria and mold. If you or your family suffers from any respiratory problems or health problems such as asthma, the quality of your air filters becomes critical.
Increase or Double the Lifespan of Your AC System
If you stay on top of regular maintenance, the longer your unit will be able to function properly, providing cooler temperatures in your home or building. It’s no secret that a properly maintained unit can last up to 10 years or more providing you take proper care of your investment.
Properly maintained HVAC and AC units produce cool temperatures more efficiently. In fact, research has shown that dirty or unmaintained AC units require more effort thus more energy to produce the same amount of cooling temperatures as their more efficient counterparts. How much more effort? About 20% more!
As a homeowner, you should look for ways to increase the efficiency in your machine to help reduce the impact on the environment, but also reduce the impact on your wallet.
In addition to functioning with less electricity, a well-maintained machine also means less wear and tear on the mechanical parts. Over time, replacing these mechanical parts can become expensive. Instead, we recommend heading off any potential problems by scheduling routine inspections and maintenance.
Avoid A Costly Emergency AC Repair Chandler AZ
Occasionally, emergencies are bound to happen. We can do all of our homework before hand and take cautionary steps in an effort to prevent accidents from happening, but they’ll still happen. At some time or another, your HVAC or AC unit may require an emergency repair, but the keyword here is “occasionally”. Well-maintained units means reducing your chances of having to pay for an emergency repair bill.
Take Advantage of Warranties
Money tends to be stretched thin these days. We totally get it. That’s why we recommend taking advantage of warranties and keeping a list of all parts covered and protected by a warranty. While it might seem tedious and pointless to keep this list, believe us, it will be a life saver when you least expect it.
Warranties frequently cover most moving mechanical parts, but few people choose to take advantage of these money-saving features. Parts under warranty can frequently be fixed at no expense to the owner, aside from the labor charges, which may occur if the homeowner isn’t technically inclined.
Most Common AC Repairs and When You Should Give Us a Call
It’s hot out and your AC has stopped functioning. You’ve exhausted all of the troubleshooting methods in your owner’s manual and are at a loss for what could possibly be wrong. Your situation isn’t unlike many others. The high heat of the Chandler, Arizona area means we get phone calls every day from homeowners who need our help. Below are a few of the most common reasons our customers call us:
1) Your Air Conditioner Ceases to Work
Before you give us a call, try making sure your thermostat is set for the “cool” setting and the temperature is set at less than the current room temperature. If all of these things look fine, then check your breaker box to ensure that no breakers have been tripped and need to be reset. If the problem persists, it’s time to pick up the phone.
2) The Unit Is Running but with No or Little Airflow
If your thermostat is set at your desired temperature and you don’t seem to notice an improvement, this may be the first imminent sign of mechanical failure.
3) Your AC Is Emitting Strange Noises
An AC system should have a dull familiar hum or no sound at all, the second your AC starts making any strange noises should be cause for concern.
4) Your Air Conditioner Smells Like a Science Experiment
Air filters need to be cleaned and replaced regularly, but if we become busy with our lives, we tend to neglect this seemingly small detail. If your air conditioner unit starts circulating air that smells like gym socks or worse, you and your family could be breathing in harmful mold spores or even potentially harmful germs.
5) Short Cycling (It Has Nothing to Do with Bicycling!)
Your air conditioner seems to be running fine until recently. Suddenly it sounds like its running laps. If your AC turns on and off frequently, your unit is short cycling. While the problem seems harmless, if left ignored, your electricity bill will remind you about the problem later.
6) Your Unit Is Leaking Water
It’s normal for your unit to experience some condensation, especially during hotter temperatures, but excessive water may indicate serious problems. We encourage you to give us a call as soon as you notice any water. Your AC is connected to, and is comprised of, electrical elements, and everyone knows water and electricity never mix.
7) Your Unit Is Cooler Than You Are
If your AC unit looks like it was pulled from a snow storm, it shouldn’t be ignored. While your unit is busy keeping your home and family cool, it doesn’t mean the air conditioner itself should look like its braving a winter day.
Restricted or blocked airflow may cause condensation to form and eventually turn into ice or frost, which may result in a frozen unit. We know, a frozen air conditioner, in Chandler Arizona?! Hard to imagine, but it happens all the time!
