If so, it might pay to get a second opinion.
The Air Conditioning Compressor is often mis-diagnosed, and it's a very costly repair.
Sometimes it's nothing more than a mistake by the technician.
Other times it's because the A/C Technician wants the bonus that he receives from his company when replacing the Compressor. After all, this is a BIG repair and BIG repairs mean BIG Bonuses to A/C Technicians.
Of course, the other pitch you might get is this: "Because the cost to repair this Compressor is so much, and your unit is so old, you would be better off just buying a new unit. (This actually makes sense if you plan on living in the home for several more years and you can afford to replace the whole unit.)
You see, now we're talking about some serious bonus money for the A/C Technician if he convinces you to buy a new A/C Unit. The bonus he receives for selling you a unit is about a weeks wages for some people.
Sometimes it does make sense to buy a new A/C Unit if your Air Conditioning Compressor is truly bad.
Depending on how old your unit is and it's overall condition, buying a new unit could prove beneficial in lowering utility costs. Sometimes new units pay for themselves in utility savings within as little as five years.
Not all Air Conditioning Companies give their technicians bonuses, but most of them do.
Unfortunately, this practice causes some technicians to stretch the truth in order to fatten their wallet.
The A/C Companies that provide a bonus program to their technicians are aware of this problem, but they also understand that it's a problem that fattens their wallets too.
It's a win win situation for everyone involved except for YOU... the customer.
You can find them, their around and we're one of them:)

Easy to work with great service
by George Arechiga
I manage 2 duplex units a total of 4 homes in Arizona and when I need service I call the A/C handyman. He is easy to work with and I don't feel like he is over charging me he has very good rates. And he shows up when he says he will. I really like his service.
Honest Air Conditioner Repair
by Ethel Duplisea
Bradley was recommended to me by a family member. It was one of the best reommendations I have received in some time. A/C Handyman is on time, proffesional and charges a fair price. Thank you Bradley.
Quick and Excellent Service
My A/C wasn't blowing cool, so I called at 7:00 am on a Friday. He showed up at 8:30 (when he said he would BTW) the same day! Added freon, and didn't try any hard sell tactics. Would highly recommend his services.
Delivered on his Promises
by John Birch
I saw Bradley's company in a comparison against most all the other Hvac companies in my area... while others sounded good, I was not impressed with what customers wrote about their service and fairness on pricing.... I think Bradley is extremely honest and you really do get pricing that is half of the other HVAC companies... Nice! Bradley is also the owner which I like. Nothing like dealing directly with the person that owns the business that you are buying from!!
by Leah Vega
We have two air conditioning units in our home, and every year before the hot weather hits we like to get our air conditioning units serviced to make sure they are working in the most optimum condition. The gentleman that came out to service our units was very courteous and professional. I will definitely be using this company in the future for all of my a/c service needs.
Fair, Honest, and Responsive
I called Brad early sunday AM. By 10:00 AM, the air was cold and I was relieved not to have a ridiculous bill. I have had some bad experiences with AC companies in the past but his timeliness, friendly manner, and fair prices were a huge relief. Brad's my AC guy from now on... thanks Brad!
Found my AC guy! Thanks
by John Shumway
(Queen Creek, AZ)
I do IT consulting on my own so I thought that there must be smaller companies with hard working honest guys around that do AC work. Google brought up Bradley's web page, and actually read the testimonials and thought I would give him a shot. Bradley came and diagnosed the problem to be a motor, he spent an hour making sure, and returned after obtaining the part and finishing up the other work he had scheduled that day which ended up being 11:00pm to replace it so my family could get some sleep. NO WAY would a large company have come that late, at least not without extreemly heavy fees. Thanks for the fair price and Excellent service!
Quick and good service!

We got fast service when we needed it, and our a/c problems were solved, and our service rep was courteous and dependable.

Brad had all the parts necessary for fixing our unit quickly. I would highly recommend his services. The charges were very reasonable.
Thank you for your expertise and very Quick Service!
Excellent Service and Knowledge
by Randall Thompson
(La Habra, CA)
I live in California and own a rental in Mesa, Az. I have used Brad as my A/C guy for a few years now because he is always there when I need him and I feel that he is honest and upfront with all details of the job. He knows A/C repair very well and gets right to the problem. Being from out-of-state I feel vulnerable to unreputable servicemen. I feel lucky to have found Brad.
Quality Service That is Reliable and Dependable
by Laura Foster
Brad is the AC expert that I rely on for all repairs and questions. In fact, we are buying a new A/C unit through Brad and he will be installing it this month! I recommend him to all of our friends. He is honest, extremely knowledgeable and reliable. He comes when you need him and you can always bank on what he tells you!
Dependable, Professional Service
by Doug Hersho
Having a rental property in Gilbert Arizona while living in Houston Texas requires reliable contractors that you can depend on for servicing. A/C Handyman has filled this requirement beyond expectations. One phone call is all it takes and you know that you don't have to worry about constant followup. Bradley will see to it that the problem is analyzed, reported back to you and repaired as required professionally. I highly recommend their service.
