Great Service!: A superhero in the blazing summer!
AC Handyman is a great find. I found their services 8 years ago and made it a point to keep them in my contact list. I had some absolute nightmares …
The fear of most is to need A/C service on a Sunday. Couldn't say more about making a call at 7am and being told "I can be there in an hour." No nonsense …
Air Conditioning Scottsdale Reviews
I had to call the A/C Handyman for service twice to my apt building. Both times that Brad came out he was on time and explained to me what the problem …

Energy Saving Tip: By switching to fluorescent light bulbs you will be using 2/3 less energy. The light bulbs also produce less heat, which means your air conditioning unit runs less.
Look on the package of your incandescent bulbs and you'll notice that they burn anywhere between 750 to 1,100 hours. The light is emitted from a looped filament on the bulb (looks like a small wire spindle) which comes from the two piece base. These light bulbs produce a great amount of heat, in fact, don't try to touch one an hour after it has been on.
The Compact fluorescent light bulb is made with two main parts: the gas-filled tube (also called bulb or burner) and the magnetic or electronic ballast. The electrical current runs through the ballast and gas area emitting a bright light. They use a quarter amount of energy compared to the regular bulb. The CFL has a 10000 hours life span. . . And guess what folks? It produces little to no heat at all; this is a definite plus for your air conditioner. The light emitted is very bright from these light bulbs. Over time the color may change but this is to be expected with any light bulb getting older.
Just head down to any reliable hardware/ home improvement store and they will steer you in the correct direction. The compact fluorescent light bulb has a spiral shape and is very small.
Service Call: Swamp cooler not working on customers rental home.
Swamp Cooler Service: The blower motor and the water pump were bad on this adobe air system.
As an owner of a swamp cooler, it's important to oil the bearings on your motor (once per season) in order to get the full life expectancy from it. Also, after the summer ends, if you'll winterize your cooler by draining the water from it, you'll help prevent stuck water pumps from going bad during start-up at next season as well as prevent any bursting of water lines during a freeze.
Service Call: Customer states that she has a maintenance contract with an air conditioning company and that every time they come out to service her unit they find something wrong with it. This time they told her that her compressor is going out and that it would cost her $2,800.00 for a refurbished one.
AC Repair: This was a package rooftop Trane air conditioner that had a compressor that was over-amping due to a weak run capacitor.
Upon customer authorization, the capacitor was replaced for UNDER $200.00 and the amp draw came down to normal levels. Unit operates normally.
I explained to the customer that although this may have been an oversight by the other technician (giving him the benefit of the doubt), it was more than likely that this technician was going to earn himself a hefty commission by replacing her compressor. Who knows, they may have simply left her good compressor in the unit, replaced the real problem (the capacitor), and charged her $2,800.00 for doing so.
For the reader of this article, you may think or feel that nobody would do such a thing. However, being in the air conditioning business, I learn of these companies and technicians on a regular basis and it discusses me.
If their was one piece of advice that I could give, it would be to stay far away from a/c companies that pay their technicians commissions. Why? Because air conditioning companies that pay their technicians commissions KNOW that some of their technicians will LIE, CHEAT, and MANIPULATE (to fatten their wallets), all at the expense of the unbeknownst customer. And when the ac technician takes home more pay - so does the owner of the company. These companies are simply taking advantage of your lack of knowledge.
Having said that, it is my opinion that air conditioning companies that implement any form of a commission paid structure, are nothing but legal crooks. You've been warned.

Service Technician Calls
Service Call: Customer says that his air conditioner is low on refrigerant and wanted to know how much it would cost to fill. I told him that it depended on the type of refrigerant that his system takes and how much refrigerant was needed. Then I gave him individual prices per lb. for both r22 and 410a refrigerants and the service was scheduled.
AC Repair: Upon Inspection, it was found that this Goodman rooftop package heat pump was completely out of refrigerant, which usually means there's a big leak in the system somewhere. I informed the customer that if I just added refrigerant to the system, that it would very likely blow right out in a short while. My electronic leak detector was down so I couldn't perform a proper leak check. However, I could visually see some oil around the capillary tubes (oily residue is a good indicator of where the leak is). So with no leak detector available, I added some nitrogen to the ac unit and found the leak. It was coming from one of the capillary tubes that had overtime, rubbed a hole into itself from vibrating against a larger copper pipe. The leak was repaired and it was advised that system be put into a vacuum before re-charging with refrigerant. However, the customer declined and just wanted it re-charged (saying that the house was going to be sold in a couple weeks and he didn't want to spend the extra money). Bad choice in my opinion, but I did what he wanted and had him sign that he understood the consequences to the systems performance (now, and into the future).

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!

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.
