April 23rd, 2018

If not, now is the time! We have plenty of hot days ahead and the last thing you want is an AC failure in the middle of it.

There’s one particular air conditioning repair in Cypress, TX that you want to always avoid if you can, and that’s a compressor burn-out. Summer puts a huge amount of stress on your air conditioner, and the main component that takes on the brunt of this work is your compressor.

Commercial Cooling: Eliminate Wasted Space with Rooftop Units

April 9th, 2018

rooftop HVAC unitsYour commercial HVAC system differs from residential systems in a number of ways. First off, it likely has to cool more space, and you might have specific cooling needs that must be met for your business to function as it should. For instance, perhaps you need to keep computer system from overheating, or maybe you are a manufacturing business and have specialized refrigeration needs.

Commercial spaces require specialized care and attention when it comes to HVAC installations and services, so it’s important that you use a company you can trust for the job. In most cases, we recommend the use of rooftop units when it comes to commercial HVAC in Houston, TX. These consist of multiple, modular, units placed atop your commercial space.

This may seem counterintuitive—exposing your air conditioner to blazing hot summers—however, commercial units are developed to handle these issues easily, plus they offer a number of benefits for business and commercial property owners.

Don’t Fall Victim to These Common Cooling System Problems

March 26th, 2018

top view of an air conditioning unitIn our previous post, we talked about steps you should be taking in order to prevent common AC repair needs. Namely, you should be keeping up with your annual maintenance appointments (or biannual, if you’re using a heat pump). Without regular maintenance, you could find yourself facing any number of potential Houston, TX air conditioning repair needs.

In addition to system maintenance, you can best ensure the efficiency of your cooling system by:

What Steps Are You Taking to Prevent AC Repair Needs?

March 12th, 2018

technician working on ac unitWith temperatures already beginning to warm up, the time to start thinking about our air conditioning systems is now. In order to prepare your system for spring, there are a few tasks you can do on your own. For instance, you should be changing your air filter every 1-3 months depending on the level contaminants in your home to protect your HVAC systems. You should also make sure both the outdoor unit and the indoor vents are unobstructed.

These are tasks that will help your air conditioner perform well this season, but what about preventing problems? For that, you need something a little more—professional air conditioning maintenance.

Should You Schedule HVAC Duct Cleaning?

February 26th, 2018

dirty duct versus clean ductHow much do you know about the ductwork in your home? Probably not a whole lot, and we wouldn’t expect you to. After all, they’re hidden from view for a reason. You shouldn’t have to think about the state of your air ducts too often. But every now and then, they will require a bit of attention. You certainly don’t need to know all the ins and outs of your ductwork, but there are a few things we think you should be aware of if you’re at all concerned about the quality and efficiency of the air being transferred through them.

Professional Sugar Land, TX air duct cleaning is a way to clean out the ductwork that air moves throughout each and every day. We do think it’s important to get this on your schedule, for a few reasons that we’ve highlighted below.

What If Your Heat Pump Won’t Switch Modes?

February 12th, 2018

white question mark on blue circleIt’s not quite time to switch your heat pump from heating mode to cooling mode just yet, but that time will come soon enough. And when it does, you’ll want to easily adjust your heat pump system so that it begins cooling as effectively as it heated your home all winter long.

However, we can’t guarantee that your heat pump will work accurately every time, especially if you skipped your maintenance appointment (this tune-up should be scheduled twice a year for heat pumps) or if your heat pump is aging and is about ready for retirement. If either of these scenarios are the case, then you might find that warm or lukewarm air is coming through your vents still when you try to switch over to cooling mode.

If this is the case, you’ll want to call for professional Sugar Land, TX heat pump services right away. In the meantime though, we’d like to tell you what’s probably going on with your HVAC system.

It’s Never Too Early to Schedule AC Maintenance

January 29th, 2018

male technician working on outside unit of an air conditionerIn a place like Texas, it can be hard to keep an air conditioner in pristine condition, considering how much demand homeowners put on their systems. If you care for your cooling system properly, however, there’s no good reason it can’t work as efficiently and effectively as possible for as long as possible. Part of this care is ensuring you invest in routine Sugar Land, TX air conditioning maintenance.

One of the most common questions we get about maintenance is when the best time to schedule it is. Generally speaking, air conditioning maintenance should be scheduled before the system’s heaviest period of use, so in early spring. However, when you have your maintenance scheduled is not as important as how often you have the service completed. But why is preventive maintenance so necessary?

Don’t Let These Midwinter Furnace Problems Get You Down

January 15th, 2018

man looking very cold standing in front of thermostatWhen you think of all the appliance repair and service needs you may have over the course of your homeownership, one that sticks out as particularly concerning is likely that of your Katy, TX HVAC system. True, our climate doesn’t get nearly as frigid as other parts of the country, but when you’re dealing with heat for as long as we do during the year, winters seem that much colder.

Given the current time of year, we’re going to focus on heating systems for this post—particularly, furnaces. First off, we hope that you invested in furnace maintenance before winter began. Maintenance gives our professionals the chance to fully inspect your heating system, cleaning it and making any adjustments or recommendations for repairs as needed.

If you skipped maintenance this year, or you didn’t follow up your tune-up with recommended repairs, then you might run into one of the following furnace repair needs this season.

How Can You Get the Most from Your Ductless System?

January 1st, 2018

Closeup view about using some appliance such as air condition.Ductless cooling and heating systems often get mistaken for standard room air conditioners thanks to their setup. They do have many of the same components; however, the configuration of a ductless system is much different than that of a traditional Houston, TX air conditioning system. Ductless systems include an indoor unit and a separate outdoor condenser. They also involve a larger investment, but for good reason (namely, efficiency!)

Take care of your investment by scheduling routine maintenance. Since ductless systems are used all year, the best way to care for the system is by scheduling this maintenance session twice a year rather than once annually as you would with a conventional air conditioner. Why is this so important?

Upgrade Your Heat Pump for Winter Comfort!

December 18th, 2017

family in living room looking comfortableAre you already using a heat pump system for your cooling needs during the year? Living where we do, it’s vital that you have an efficient Sugar Land, TX air conditioning system, and investing in a heat pump ensures this is the case. A heat pump system is a great choice for homeowners who want year-round comfort all from one system, as heat pumps have a reversing valve that allows for sufficient heating too, when winter comes.

Now, it’s true that for the most part, our winters are fairly mild. It’s rare that our lows dip below 45°. But it has been known to get colder than that, especially at night during the winter. And when that happens, your heat pump can struggle to draw in warm air in order to effectively heat your home. All is not lost, though! Your solution lies in a system upgrade, from a heat pump system to a dual fuel system!
