Heating & AC Repair Service, Maintenance and Sales

  • Servicing all major brands including: Carrier, Goodman, Nordyne, Rheem, York, Trane, Sears and Lennox
  • 24/7 Emergency Services Available

Some people spend as much as $2,000 to $3,000 repairing their AC, and others spend as little as $100-$200. However, the majority spend between $300-$400 to have a unit that was not operating come back to life and cool their homes

In Birmingham, Freedom Heating and Cooling gets this question every week. There are many brands, and they are all really good. Most share the same components with just the outside case differing. Any brand that is properly sized for cooling capacity and the matching airflow, which is most often missed, will work trouble-free for years. It’s also a good idea to look for a unit assembled in the USA to support our economy, friends, neighbors and family.

In short, yes. However, with the wait of ordering a compressor, 4-6 hours of on-site work, and the possible need to do multiple follow ups to certify that everything is working properly; it can be a very inconvenient ordeal. It’s like major surgery and can take many small adjustments to fine tune it. Sometimes replacement is the best option.

Plumbers usually charge around $75-$150 per hour. Although, the plumber’s hourly rate can vary depending on: 

  • The plumber’s level of experience. 
  • The time of day the repair is done. 
  • The day of the week the repair is done.

Generally, experienced and licensed plumbers will have slightly higher rates due to their level of experience and credentials. To find out about our plumbing services, give us a call today

 

A few things you should consider when deciding to repair or replace your HVAC system are: 

  • The age of your HVAC unit. 
  • How often it breaks down. 
  • If the cost to repair your HVAC unit outweighs the cost to replace it. 

If your HVAC system is over 10 years old and requires many repairs, it can be more cost effective to have your entire HVAC system replaced since it will cost you less on repairs and energy costs. To get your HVAC system repaired or replaced, call us today

It should cost around $5,000-$10,000 to replace your home air conditioning and heating system in Birmingham, AL. Although, the cost can vary due to: 

  • The size of your home. 
  • The type of HVAC unit you have installed. 
  • Whether or not you need your ductwork replaced. 

Although getting your home air conditioning and heating system replaced at the same time can be costly, it is very worthwhile. Leaky ductwork can cause your new HVAC system to work harder and cost you more on energy each month. To get a new HVAC system installed in your home, contact us today

To find the best local plumbing company in Birmingham, AL you should: 

  • Check online reviews of plumbing companies near you. 
  • Ask family and friends for recommendations.
  • Ask local plumbing companies if they are licensed to work in the state.

If you are thinking about getting a plumbing project done, you can also ask plumbing companies for references from previous customers that had similar projects completed. To learn about our plumbing services, give us a call today.

Hot Water Tank Problems turns into a cool blessing. #ExcellentService
My Husband died. You’re probably wondering why I started the survey like this. It’s because this old house of ours like my broken heart was try ing to die too. Since he left, I’ve had to fix and /or replace so many things in the house like the roof; paint the outside, out all the fuses in the electrical box; learn how to pull the filter out and which filter to get for the furnace. Most of all plumbing issues have plagued me. Many things have happened. But when a company came to fix/replace the furnace, he said I needed a plumber because my HOT WATER TANK was leaking. So for days I hail five gallon bucket of water from under the tank until I called and got someone out. Lo and behold, a young Man name Tanner Nelson from Freedom Heating and Cooling came out to my home, surveyed the problem. He explained to me the problem and the out of pocket cost for me. At first, no fault of Tanner, the insurance company tried to charge me more than the original quote from Freedom and the same quote they themselves had that I would have to pay. I didn’t know I had an out of pocket cost so I had to postpone service on Friday. When I called Freedom, and explained what happened, they said that they would talk with Tanner, I guess they talked with the insurance company too to get his professional this situation straightened out. As God would have it, and HE did have it, Tanner came to my home on Wednesday and brought a new tank. My house is old, very old and everything was old and rusted. So Tanner probably had to use muscles that he hadn’t had to use in a while but he got things going. He safely drained my old tank without flooding downstairs. How he lifted that old tank and the new tank is beyond me. They look like they weighed tons. The new tank look bigger than he was, not bigger than his know-how, professionalism nor kindness but bigger than his body. But he rolled it in like a champ. And yes, he broke a sweat. That first new tank although standard was not a standard fit for my old tank area and Tanner had tote that monster tank back and replace it with a tank that would fit. He was something else to watch while he worked. I use to watch and talk with my Husband while he worked and I told Tanner. Tanner kindly said I was not bothering him. This young man even handled the financial collection of payment part and signing of the agreements with me. He drove the drove and did all the lifting all by himself. My Husband and I would call him a nut to bolts kind of stand up kind of guy. He represented Freedom very well. And I will use Freedom service from now on again and again. With honest and kindest regards, Mrs. Cynthia Kellum Crestwood Blvd, Birmingham, Alabama March 1, 2023

The client noticed a big difference in their last few water bills. This can be an indication of a leak in or around the house. When we came over, we noticed some soil erosion near the mainline to the house. These kinds of leaks can cause damage to the slab or foundation of the house. Fortunately, we were able to detect the leak and make sure there was no major damage to the slab.
