Fixing an air conditioning unit can be one of the most expensive ventures you will ever undertake. HVAC experts charge up to $200 an hour, as per demand and supply determination, for example during summer they will charge extremely high just to come out and diagnose the problems.
The best time to repair and refurbish your air conditioning unit is during the early part of the Spring when you don’t need it as much as you need it during the freezing winter or the sizzling summer.
