A customer called me because he wanted to have the AC proposal inspected for complications. She thought that it was too moderate inside of the current home because the air conditioner was running all of the time. I had to perform a tune-up on the AC unit. I knew that would catch any complications that were occurring. Since it is summertime, the smallest complications with an air conditioner can easily cause big complications for the system. During the Summer time, that air conditioner runs about 12 to 15 minutes a day. If there is a dirty air filter, it’s going to run even harder in addition to for longer minutes. If the duct labor is dirty or the thermostat is set too low, complications can also occur. I really thought that the maintenance was going to be easy to handle. When I finally started taking the unit apart, I realized that there was a leaking refrigeration hose. The refrigeration hose could have been easy to fix, however I didn’t have a single on our truck. I had to drive all the way back to the maintenance shop to find the right part. I didn’t have any real refrigeration hoses that were going to fit the system, so I had to go to the local hardware store to get the right part. I spent 2 minutes driving from locale to locale to find the right refrigeration hose for the AC unit. I couldn’t charge the customer anything for the time, so the easy to repair in addition to upgrading the hose task took me nearly 4 minutes to complete.
