Wichita HVAC Story: When Do I Need a New Air Conditioner?

It is something many homeowners dread: an air conditioner breaking down in the middle of summer. Imagine a blistering hot July day here in Wichita and suddenly your AC is not doing its job. You hope it will be a quick and easy fix. Or will the AC repair technician say those dreadful words: “It’s going to need a lot of work.”

Fenix Heating & Cooling has repaired air conditioners across Wichita since 1988. Therefore, we know exactly what homeowners worry about when we respond to their AC repair call. If it’s summer in Kansas, you absolutely need your AC system to work.

But when your AC is not working properly, you are not in a great position. You are going to have to rely upon an AC repair technician to get it back up and running again. And that is an unfortunate situation, especially if you’re concerned someone will tell you that your system needs unnecessary expensive repairs, or worse – that it needs to be completely replaced.

Wichita HVAC Story

Tammy is one of many Wichita homeowners who found herself in this exact position. A couple of years ago, she discovered her air conditioner had stopped working in the hottest part of summer. Like many other homeowners who faced this situation in Wichita that summer, she called on our team at Fenix Heating & Cooling.

In Tammy’s situation, she didn’t just have a broken AC, she had an old one. Her air conditioner had been on its last legs. The increased demand for cool air output during those hot days was more than it could handle. She knew a replacement AC was inevitable and was ready for us to provide a new air conditioner replacement.

Fast Solutions to Waiting on a New Air Conditioner

Unfortunately, installing an entirely new air conditioner couldn’t happen quickly. Tammy had a hot Wichita house that was only getting hotter. Even waiting a day or two for the AC installation to be completed put her comfort and safety at risk.

Therefore, as we prepared for her AC replacement, our AC service technicians put in a portable air conditioner unit. That allowed Tammy’s HVAC system to be able to start cooling her house down right away. It would not be a permanent fix, but Tammy would not have to endure several days waiting for an AC install.

Over those days the portable unit was filling in to keep her home cool enough until a replacement AC could be installed. Our office staff and installers made sure to keep Tammy in the loop on any developments and an expected schedule to get her new air conditioning unit in.

The final solution to Tammy’s comfort needs that would fit her home size was a Lennox Elite HVAC system. That consisted of a 96% AFUE furnace with 2-stage variable speed heating as well as a 16 SEER rating AC.

We finished off the job with the installation of a new Lennox iComfort thermostat. Now, with this Fenix installation complete, Tammy had the ultimate in modern home heating and cooling. And she wouldn’t have to worry about an AC breakdown OR a heating breakdown for a long time!

Glowing Customer Review for Wichita HVAC Company

“Our AC decided it was going to quit in the hottest part of summer. A call to Fenix Heating & AC quickly got us going, but the dreaded “it’s going to need major work or a new unit” words were uttered. Not a shock as our unit was old. Thankfully, Fenix made the process as painless as possible. Even helping us with a portable unit to help us limp through till they could get a new unit installed. Working in the HVAC field for years, I am aware of how busy this time of year can be and I am VERY appreciative they could work us in. Fenix was a joy to work with from salesman Cory to 3 different techs (Wes, Damon, & Al) helping us to limp through and after installation fine tuning, to the installers Curtis and Wayne. The office was on top of letting us know when to expect everyone. They let me know about Lennox financing to help ease the financial burden. They were all friendly, professional, prompt and courteous. Even after long days at work in the heat. We bought the Lennox Elite 96% AFUE Furnace 2 stage variable speed with 16 seer Condensing 2 stage unit, coil, and Lennox iComfort Thermostat which I love. Thank you to the Fenix team! Please use them. You will not regret it.”
