Don’t Ignore These Signs of AC Trouble

Monday, July 16th, 2018

woman looking very concerned with hand over mouthSo long as your air conditioner is starting up and producing some cold air, it’s easy to just assume it is working fine and carry on with your day, right? Well, we think that your air conditioner should work better than “fine.” You deserve the most effective and efficient performance your cooling system can muster up, but it can only perform at this high level if you invest in professional AC maintenance and air conditioning repair in Cypress, TX.

For Texas residents, our cooling systems put in a lot of work over the course of the summer season, let alone the entire year. Some wear and tear is to be expected, as a result. That’s why routine annual maintenance (or biannual, if you have a heat pump system) is so highly recommended. It’s a necessity to the functionality and longevity of your air conditioner. But even with maintenance, you could still run into AC trouble every now and then. While symptoms can be subtle, there are certainly indications you can watch out for, such as:

A heating/cooling vent register on the wall of a home, with open/close leverWe may be edging closer to winter, but around our area that doesn’t mean much when it comes to the use of our air conditioners.

Compressor Failure: Repair or Replace?

Monday, October 23rd, 2017
