AC Repair in Louisville, KY

At some point, your home’s cooling system will likely experience a leak, physical damage or an electrical issue. While it may seem more prudent to repair the problem and move on, the better solution may be to replace your cooling system.

When Repairs Are Appropriate

Opting to repair your defective cooling system may be best if the problem is relatively minor or if it still has a significant portion of its useful life remaining. Repairing an air conditioner may also be best if the damage won’t impact its ability to run efficiently after the required fixes are made.

At Murphy Company Heating & Cooling in Louisville, we have trained technicians who can handle air conditioner repair projects of all sizes in a timely and affordable manner. If your system is still under warranty, it may be possible to take care of the issue at no charge or at a reduced rate.

When a Full Replacement May Be Best

A full air conditioning system replacement may be ideal if your system is nearing the end of its useful life. This may be especially true if you have been making more frequent trips to the hardware store or calls to our shop to have various minor issues repaired.

Having our crew put in a new cooling system will likely reduce or eliminate the amount of time and money spent on keeping your house comfortable during the warmer months. It may also reduce your cooling bills as a new system will generally be more efficient than the one installed in your home more than a decade ago.

In addition to cooling system services, we can also perform indoor air quality tests, work on your home’s ducts and install a new furnace to go along with your new air conditioner. If you are in the market for air conditioning services, don’t hesitate to call Murphy Company Heating & Cooling today!
