May 6th, 2019

man-holding-air-filterWhen it comes to air conditioning maintenance, you may already know what to do. Once a year, give a professional a call to come in and inspect your system, make any necessary adjustments, clean the unit inside and out, and recommend repairs if needed.

Is that all that can be done, though? If you’re wondering if once a year is often enough to do any maintenance to your air conditioner, the answer is no.

There is one maintenance task in particular that homeowners can not only do on their own, but they should be doing on their own, and that’s changing the air filter in the system. But, why?

AC Installation: Why Size Matters

April 22nd, 2019

outside-ac-unitThe official start of spring just a couple weeks ago was a great reminder that even warmer temps are right around the corner. If you’ve lived our area for even just a year, you know how uncomfortably hot it gets as those temps climb. This means that now is the best time to think about your air conditioner.

Does Good Insulation Make a Difference in Summer?

February 25th, 2019

technician-installing-blown-in-insulationThe average homeowner associates insulation with cold weather. We wouldn’t blame you if you’re one of these homeowners—after all, it’s during winter that we want and need to be protected from the chillier temperatures, right? Naturally, more insulation will help you achieve this. Of course, living anywhere near Sugar Land, TX, you don’t have to worry about cold weather for too long, so you might ignore the importance of proper home insulation.

However, insulation does more than protect you from the cold. In fact, it benefits your comfort every bit as much in the summer as it does the winter. Sure, temperatures are still chilly for now, but that means that now is the perfect time to focus on how to most efficiently use your air conditioner when the time comes for it to cycle back on again. In order to achieve optimal comfort with high efficiency this year, be sure you have the right insulation in the right areas of your home. Read on to learn more, and contact our team for expert Sugar Land insulation services!

What It Means When Your Heat Pump Won’t Switch Modes

February 11th, 2019

blue-circle-with-white-question-mark-and-white-backgroundWith temperatures expected to start creeping back up into the 70s in just a few short weeks, it’s time to ensure your air conditioner is ready for the change in the weather. The best way to do this is to schedule preventive maintenance. It’s still a little early just yet, but it’s never too early for a tune-up! We typically recommend this service be done in the spring before you need your air conditioner the most.

What if you have a heat pump? The same rule applies, except you should have maintenance done on this system twice a year, since it does get year-round use. Without maintenance, you can run into any number of problems. One issue in particular that we get calls for as temperatures rise is in regards to a heat pump that won’t switch modes—that is, a heat pump system that won’t come out of heating mode and into cooling mode.
