Richard Walton's Rating
Richard and Austin came to do a plumbing repair. They were SUPER professional and extremely courteous. I am a repeat customer, and I don’t have to guess who I am going to call. I request Richard McDonald every time. He knows my house, and its quirky way it has. Thank you for another great job! Richard Walton
Josh Cooley's Rating
My experiences with Guin have been excellent. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. They are problem solvers and seem happy to help, whereas some other companies I have dealt with (Roto-rooter in particular) have salivated at every opportunity to rake me over the coals and charge often double what things should cost. Highly recommended. Josh Cooley
Joan B.'s Rating
This company examined my A/C system for any issues. They were honest and professional. They didn’t use any high tech selling methods. They did exactly what initially was told to me. I decided to let Guin manage my system for future maintenance. I felt like this company cares about customers and that choosing them was a very good choice among several other companies. The technicians were super nice and explained any concerns that I had. Joan B.

Helpful Information

Air Conditioning System Repairs FAQs

How Often Should I Schedule Maintenance for My Residential Air Conditioning Unit?

At least once a year and ideally before the peak of the summer season. Preventative maintenance ensures your AC is ready to keep you cool in warmer weather. Our annual checkups go beyond a simple cleaning as our certified technicians will thoroughly inspect your system, uncovering potential problems before they cause discomfort or drain your wallet.

What Are the Signs That My Air Conditioning System Needs Repair?

  • Uneven Cooling: If some rooms in your house are cooler than others, it could be a sign of clogged ducts, malfunctioning airflow, or a refrigerant leak.
  • Increased Noise: Unusual noises coming from your AC unit can indicate loose parts, failing components, or a clogged system.
  • Rising Energy Bills: A sudden increase in your cooling costs could be due to an inefficient AC unit working harder to maintain the desired temperature.
  • Frequent Cycling: If your AC unit constantly turns on and off without cooling your home, it could be a sign of low refrigerant levels or a faulty compressor.

How Can I Improve the Energy Efficiency of My Air Conditioning System?

To keep your home cool and your energy bills low, we recommend scheduling annual maintenance with a Guin technician, changing air filters monthly, and considering a programmable thermostat to optimize settings. Additionally, blocking sunlight during the day and upgrading an old, inefficient system can significantly improve your AC's energy efficiency.

How Can I Enhance the Lifespan of My Air Conditioning Unit?

Extending the lifespan of your home’s AC unit begins with preventative maintenance. Our air conditioner service company can identify and address minor issues before they escalate into costly repairs. Here are some additional tips to consider:
  • Avoid running your AC excessively: Cleaner air reduces stress on your AC unit and helps prevent coil clogs.
  • Keep the outdoor unit clear of debris: Leaves, branches, and other debris can obstruct airflow and reduce efficiency.
  • Invest in a whole-home air filtration system: Cleaner air reduces stress on your AC unit and helps prevent coil clogs.

How Often Should I Replace the Air Filters in My Air Conditioning System?

To maintain the best performance, you should replace your AC unit’s air filters at least once a month. During peak cooling months, you may need to change them more frequently, especially if you have pets or allergies.

What Should I Do If My Air Conditioner Is Not Cooling Effectively?

If your AC isn't cooling properly, ensure the thermostat is set to cool and your desired temperature is lower than the current room temperature. You can also try changing the air filter, checking that all vents are open and unobstructed, and turning off any ceiling fans as they can circulate warm air, negating the cooling effect of your AC unit.
If you've followed these steps and your unit is still not cooling effectively, contact Guin Service for expert diagnosis and repair.

HVAC & Plumbing Emergency Services

Possibly a homeowner’s worst nightmare is an air conditioner that stops working in the middle of an Alabama summer. If you have lived in the Birmingham area for a summer or two, you know how the humidity adds a whole extra layer of discomfort to an already sweltering day. Air conditioners have to work much harder and longer in the South, so the chance that yours might stop working at any moment is a real possibility.

But Alabama winters pose their own threats, too, like pipes bursting in the middle of the night or on the weekend. Leaky pipes and burst pipes can cause flooding in a home very quickly if a professional isn’t called ASAP. Save valuables and the interior of your home by calling the experienced plumbers at Guin. We are available around the clock all year long for any emergency situation.
