When to Schedule Air Conditioner Services

Monday, April 20th, 2020

stopwatch-service-timeIf we didn’t already know how rapidly our weather could switch on us, the recent weeks have certainly solidified that fact in our minds.

Or were you a bit worried that you might have a problem in your system that could leave you without the cool air you needed? If you aren’t 100% sure about how well your AC can do its job, you may need to take a moment to think about scheduling service for your system

What is Short-Cycling?

Monday, October 21st, 2019

white question mark on blue circle with white backgroundTexas 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.

The truth is that an air conditioning system that is short-cycling is one that needs repairs sooner than later.

ac-unit-with-tools-in-backyardIt’s hard to imagine thinking about our air conditioners just yet. After all, we’re still experiencing the occasional 35° mornings! But if you’ve lived in our area for even just a year, you know that when those spring and summer temperatures start rising, they hit fast and hard. Thus, you need an exceptional air conditioning system to keep you cool and comfortable.

This means that if your air conditioner showed any signs of repair needs last cooling season and you haven’t had that done yet, now is the time. It also means that now is the time to start thinking about scheduling your next AC maintenance tune-up.

Namely, you should be keeping up with your annual maintenance appointments (or biannual, if you’re using a heat pump).

The Importance of Spring Air Conditioning Maintenance

Monday, April 4th, 2016

Spring is upon us, and with that is the warm weather. If you’ve already had to turn on your AC this season, you hopefully did not experience any detrimental problems. Your AC system’s components get a good workout—and a good amount of natural wear and tear—this time of year. So, if your system doesn’t get regularly maintained, there’s a good probability that it will eventually break down without warning.
