Air Conditioner Repair – http://www.alpineairconditioningtallahassee.com/- Customer review for the air conditioning system repair work done by Andre, the owner of Alpine Air Conditioning.
I am an engineer, so I have a very critical eye for technical work. We knew there was a leak in the evaporator coil so the options were to replace the evaporator coil or the entire AC unit. We had three companies bid on the job. One did not bother to send us a bid. One sent a bid but forgot to put the amount on the bid. Andre, the owner of the one employee company Alpine Air, sent us a bid the same evening via email to replace the evaporator coil and to replace the entire unit. We decided to replace the evaporator coil. Andrea showed up exactly on time. He had set aside the entire afternoon to replace the evaporator coil. He worked at a good pace. I spent the entire time asking him about the AC system and what he was doing every step of the way. He was very patient and answered all my questions. As an engineer, I had a very confident feeling that he was doing an excellent job and we were going to get a lot more years out of the AC. In particular, towards the end of the job he said that it would look like he was slowing down becasue he was going to take time to remove water from the copper AC lines before he added the refrigerant. He added nitrogen gas to the Cu lines and let it sit for quite some time. He said the longer he waited the greater the amount of water in the copper lines that would evaporate into the nitrogen gas. And the less water in the copper lines, the less problem there would be when he replaced the nitrogen with refrigerant. After he filled the line with refrigerant, he spent another good amount of time measuring the temperature and pressure of refrigerant in the two copper lines and also measuring the temperature inside our house and the temperature of the air coming out of the ducts. He did this to make sure the system was working at its top efficiency. Andre was very professional and I highly recommend Alpine Air.
