And what if the problem turns out to be something really simple? Here are four common A/C problems to check for before calling in a professional, and what to do about them.
Had to call on a Saturday for after hour service. Robby with BTAC contacted us quickly and was at our home shortly there after. He was very professional and quite pleasant. He had the issue fixed within an hour of me calling. We are very pleased with the work and will definitely being using them in the future.

So worth having them out here to take a look. The technician also rewired something in my AC unit inside (sorry I don’t know technical words for AC units lol) that makes it turn on faster (a couple seconds versus a few minutes). I was very grateful for the very professional service I received, both on the phone with the lady who I made my appointment with, and the technician who really saved me a buck!
