Today’s newly built homes often tote the detail that they are “green and efficient” because they are sealed. This means that the way they are built reduces air leakage which helps to improve the efficiency of the homes systems by making it easier to maintain the ideal indoor temperature.
One big factor in your home’s efficiency is it’s insulation. This may seem like a strange concept since this is merely the fluffy material between the inner and out wall of your home. However, insulation is one of the biggest players when it comes to keeping your house temperate and comfortable. And we are here to explain how (and to offer our HVAC services in Katy, TX when your insulation isn’t enough to keep your heater in good working order anymore).

Texas is one of several states that requires the use of efficient, well-maintained air conditioning systems. If you are live in the Lone Star state and you don’t have a properly working AC, you are likely to encounter uncomfortable days filled with heat and humidity throughout most of the year.
If you have a good cooler though, you don’t have to worry about finding sanctuary from high temperatures in a coffee shop or library because you can keep your home as comfortable as you want. However, this doesn’t mean your system will never encounter issues.
One of the many common problems that we see in residential AC systems is short-cycling. Some residents may not realize that short-cycling is an issue simply because their air conditioner is still running, even if it seems to be doing so in short spurts.
The truth is that an air conditioning system that is short-cycling is one that needs repairs sooner than later.

Ideally, when your cooling system runs, it should produce a low key amount of noise that blends into the background of your day. The only downside to this is that you may not notice when your unit seems to keep running.
If you have recently realized that your cooling system simply seems to keep going and going, it may be time to look into this phenomenon. The fact is that your AC shouldn’t run all day long and it doing so is actually an indicator that you will need the help of professionals offering air conditioning repair in Richmond, TX.
If you would like to know more about what is keeping your system from ever shutting down, we suggest you read on!

You’re probably expecting us to say, “get an air conditioner that’s big enough!” right? After all, most homeowners understand that a cooling system that’s too small for a home won’t be able to cool it effectively. You might be surprised, however, to find out that too large of a system can be just as detrimental to its efficiency.
And the bottom line with this is that an improperly sizes air conditioner will mean big trouble for your comfort and for your budget. Similar to an incorrectly sized engine in your car, you can find yourself with a malfunctioning or even completely broken down piece of equipment. Keep reading to learn more.

Just because the official end of summer is near doesn’t mean our temperatures will suddenly cool down. In fact, you can expect to need your cooling system for quite a bit longer.
However, this winding-down time of the season is a good point to assess your air conditioner’s needs and whether you want to keep using it after you fix it up a bit, or if you’re ready for replacement.
The bottom line is you don’t want to wait for your AC system to completely break down before you get it replaced—this can leave you in a stifling home in the middle of summer. If possible, we advise you to get ahead of the problem and replace your system before it starts giving you any issues such as increased electrical bills and unreliable operation. But, how do you know when replacement is the better option over repair?
