When your air conditioning stops working, it isn’t just an annoyance. It can be a real health danger. South East Texas is one of the hottest and most humid regions of the country. The heat index is usually well into the 90s and 100s during summer. It can turn a home into a literal oven.
That’s why having a properly maintained A/C system is so important!
Yearly Air Conditioning Maintenance
The best way to keep your AC working at its best is to keep it properly maintained. Filters should be changed every quarter and the outside unit needs to be free of debris, but those aren’t the only things that need to happen.
When you call us for a service call, we’ll do the things you can’t do, like check the health of your capacitor, inspect the coolant and coils, and all the other things that could keep your AC from running efficiently or cause a breakdown if neglected. The best time to get a maintenance inspection is during the spring so there is enough time for repairs before the heat hits. This inspection should be done yearly.
Also, if your AC unit is getting old, we can give you an estimate for a replacement. Most home AC units have a lifespan of 10 years before they need serious work.
If your AC breaks down or isn’t blowing as cold as it used to, you can’t afford to wait for a repair. The heat inTexas is brutal and it can turn your home into a dangerous place. Nor can your budget. Systems that don’t blow as cold as they should waste more money and will raise your energy bill. We offer same-day service for most emergency AC repairs and can get your system blowing cold and dry air sooner than you might think.
Here are some signs that your AC needs a MET technician to look it over:
- Little or no air blown through the ducts.
- Air isn’t cold enough.
- Condensation where it shouldn’t be, like around the AC or furnace unit.
- Funny sounds or strange odors
- Thermostat problems
If you are experiencing any of these signs, give us a call. We’ll diagnose your system for problems and give you a fair quote for repairs. If agreeable, we will get your system repaired so you don’t have to worry about baking in your own home.
