You might need a nerd if…

  • Your desktop or laptop makes an unusual, repeating click sound
  • A lot of heat seems to be building up around the back of your computer
  • Dust or pet dander seems to form around your computer’s heat vents, or you see gunk clogs (now isn’t that a lovely phrase?) inside your computer
  • You know you need a computer fan replacement, but you don’t know how to do it
  • You’re not sure if you need a computer fan repair, and would like to talk to a local Sacramento expert for advice

Sacramento Fan Replacement Service

Fans — is there anything these amazing whirry contraptions can’t do? Well, a lot, we suppose. But when it comes to keeping hot things cool, few devices outperform the humble fan. But even with all the warning signs we mentioned above, most people don’t give much thought to whether their computer might need a computer fan replacement. It’s just one of those devices we expect to last forever.

Unfortunately, this is far from the case. In fact, if your computer regularly lives in a dusty environment or even if you have a two or more year old computer that has received regular use, there’s a good chance your computer’s performance and longevity would benefit from computer fan repair or cleaning.

Cool fan fact #1: Heat is computer kryptonite

Most people assume that malware, time, and gremlins form the triple threat of entropy that will ultimately destroy your computer. All of these are very real factors (yes, we can confirm that gremlins are all too real). But heat is the ultimate enemy. 

Heat makes metals warp. It causes plastic to slowly brittle and degrade. Left uncontrolled, heat will ultimately cause your computer’s delicate electronic circuitry to fail. A computer fan repair effectively restores your fan to its full RPMs, which means it can whisk that deadly heat away before it becomes an issue. 

Cool fan fact #2: Fans move more than air

If heat is Beelzebub, then dust is the hateful Cerberus that prowls in his flamey wake. Most computers must move at least some air to shift heat, which means they inevitably draw an infernal stew of dust, pollen, water vapor, and cat fur into their silicone innards. That stuff needs to be cleaned out for your computer to function. When we perform a computer fan repair on your computer, one of our priorities will be to thoroughly clean not just your computer fan, but all adjacent circuitry. If you do need a computer fan replacement we’ll make sure your computer is completely cleaned as part of the installation process.

You may be unsure about whether you need a computer fan replacement or if a computer fan repair would suffice. We’ll take a close look at your fan’s performance.

If your home is unusually hard on computer fans (cats, anyone?), we can equip your computer with additional filters around the fan. That’ll keep your computer much cleaner, and help you avoid another computer fan replacement in the near future.

Questions nerds often hear about Sacramento Fan Replacement

Is it safe to do my own computer fan replacement?

If you’re unsure about working with electricity or sensitive electronic components this is definitely a computer task to leave to an expert. We’re based right here in Sacramento and offer affordable expert-level repairs.  

Would a vacuum cleaner do the trick?

Hmm, how to put this. You wouldn’t stick a garden hose down your throat if you had indigestion. Or we hope you wouldn’t. While great for gremlin eradication, using your Suck-o-Matic 6000 on a delicate computer could cause more harm than good. Computer fan repair is a delicate job, and big household vacuums won’t cut it. 

Should I be worried if my computer gets hot?

A bit of heat is fine, but if your computer seems to become increasingly hot with use, or if you notice a sudden spike in temperature, it’s a good idea to look for a cause. Computer fan repair is frequently the solution. Oh, and did we mention we’re right here in Sacramento and are masters of computer fan repair?
