A/C Repairs saved the day. I own multiple properties, and after receiving a call about two 5 ton units that were out at one of my properties, my tenant called a different a/c company and was told both compressors needed to be replaced (one was shorted and one was opened) which would have cost me over $12,000. I called A/C Repairs and after Eddie Daniel reviewed the two units and discovered that one unit only had a broken wire, and the other one had a broken fan motor. Eddie ended up saving me from a greedy a/c man and saved me thousands of dollars.

I called A/C Repairs Inc. at the recommendation of Alan at Florida Cooling to check out an issue I had with an ICP unit that is only 2 yrs. old. I had an estimate for repair from another A/C service which seemed ridiculously high. Mike from A/C Repairs was sent to check my unit out and diagnosed it and repaired it in a very efficient manner. Also the cost for the repair was 1/3 of what the other service had quoted. I am very happy with the service I received from A/C Repairs and highly recommend them to everyone. Thank you, Eddie Daniel and Mike McCarthy for excellent service and reasonable a price. Thank you Alan of Florida Cooling for sending me their way. I am a happy snowbird.
