How do you clean a thermocouple?
Before you do anything, shut off the system your thermocouple is a part of. The easiest way to clean your thermocouple is with steel wool or a coarse sponge until all the soot or other matter is gone. If there's space, use a pencil eraser to get in between the threads of any screws connecting the thermocouple and valve control. Even though it might be tempting, avoid using regular cleaning products (especially if they contain flammable chemicals) on your thermocouple, as they can be damaging.
Is my wiring up-to-date?
Most homeowners and inspectors cannot always identify the age of wiring. It takes a trained electrician to do this. If your home was built between 1920 and 1960, the wiring that was used has a tendency to dry rot and cause many problems. Your house should be inspected to determine if your wiring is up-to-date.
You fix refrigerators, right? I have this GE refrigerator that's about 10 years old. It's a side-by-side refrigerator. It was working fine. Then we had to do some work with the power coming into the house, and we needed to shut the power off several times and turn it back on again. After it went through that, it won't work anymore. I thought it would be something simple like a circuit breaker or a fuse, but evidently, it wasn't. There isn't any power in the control panel; there's the only power in the light bulbs inside the fridge. Somebody told me it could be the control panel or circuit board at the back. Are you familiar with that? What do you charge for a service call? Do you buy authorized parts for repairs? How do you get them?
Yes, we fix GE appliances, including refrigerators. We have GE specialists who can help fix any issue in your appliances. They are highly trained, licensed, and certified for all GE products. We have a service call fee, which pays for the technician to travel to your home, inspect your unit and tell you what's wrong. That will be waived if you proceed with the repairs. Our technician will order parts for you straight from the manufacturer. Upon checking, the soonest available schedule is for tomorrow between 11 and 2 PM.
If I have my air ducts cleaned will the air quality in my home improve?
According to NADCA, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living in a typical six-room house. Other contaminants and air pollutants such as dander, dust, and chemicals are also generated by normal occupation in a home. Did you know that these contaminants end up in your HVAC system and are re-circulated on average of 5-7 times per day? Over time, these contaminants can be found in your duct work. Those who suffer from autoimmune disorders or respiratory health conditions such as asthma will benefit by breathing cleaner air. Your indoor air quality will improve, and you will feel healthier.
How many pounds of freon does a home ac unit hold?
Your system will need 2-4 pounds of refrigerant per ton. A 3-ton AC or Heat Pump with a 35-foot line set will require 12 pounds. The line set, coil, and unit are included in this estimate.
How much would it cost for you guys to come out and check the AC here? It is for a commercial property. If I need someone tomorrow, will they be able to come out right away?
The diagnostic rate for commercial properties will be $250. It is applied to any repair and goes towards the repair price. We have an available time tomorrow between 11 AM to 3 PM or 12 to 4 PM.
