Air conditioning service – FAQ

1. How can I tell if my AC unit is energy-efficient?

Check your unit’s SEER rating. Modern, more efficient models typically have a rating of 15 or higher, using less energy for a reduced environmental impact.


2. What should I do if my AC is making strange noises?

Strange noises like rattling, buzzing, or grinding can indicate issues such as loose parts or motor problems. It’s important to have experienced AC contractors inspect and address these issues promptly to prevent more damage.


3. How often do I have to replace my air filters?

Replace your air filters every 1–2 months, especially if you use your system heavily or have pets. Clean filters improve airflow and help maintain indoor air quality. Call our air conditioning services if you have any doubts about how to do it.


4. Why is my AC unit freezing up?

Freezing can occur due to low refrigerant levels, inadequate airflow, or dirty coils. If you notice your unit freezing, turn it off and contact a professional AC company to inspect and repair the issue. Ensuring proper AC maintenance can prevent this problem.


5. What should I do if I need emergency AC repair?

Contact our technicians for immediate assistance. Our company offers 24-h AC repair services to keep your home comfortable. Whether it’s a major breakdown or a minor glitch, our emergency AC repair team can help around the clock.

Every air conditioner repair is different. After thoroughly inspecting your space, we review our competitive pricing plans and quotes for AC installations, replacements, and all services. Check out our live coupons that can help you save a few bucks!


7. How often should I schedule AC maintenance?

Customer Feedback

  • Stephanie H, Oct 19, 2023

    They not only replaced my faucet, but did an annual plumbing inspection which I’ve never had and was hugely helpful. I would highly recommend this company for the way they treat their customers and the good service.

  • Janelle H, Sept 23, 2023

    Wonderful first experience with Gilman Plumbing, It’s so hard to find good people out here in the NNK. I called them with a non-emergency today and within 30 min they were at my house and repaired everything within 1 hour 40 min from first call to a finished product. Thank you so much Gilman, we are customers for a long time!

  • Michelle M, June 15, 2023

    I have used Gilman’s for years and have never been disappointed. The men who come out are always polite, respectful, and careful to explain what is going on and what my options are. I cannot say enough how much I recommend them for whatever service you may need.

  • Leslie I, Oct 9, 2023

    I can not say enough good things about the team at Gilman in Kilmarnock. Whenever I have had an issue I get a very timely appointment due to great administrative management. Everyone from front desk to HVAC and plumbing are great to work with. They will not quit until the job is done. Kudos especially to “Noah” for two days of dead ends with a drain clog. He kept a pleasant attitude no matter how messy the job became! I highly recommend Gilman. Thanks for a great job every time.

  • Cristina T, May 18, 2023

    We had an area in the kitchen with damp drywall. Gilman sent a technician early the next morning who found the leak, verified where it was coming from, removed damaged pipe and installed new pipe. Our technician Chris was professional, knowledgeable, and completed the job timely. I would recommend Gilman to any of our neighbors.
