Summer heat doesn’t let up in August and September—and in Texas it can often get worse. This is the “danger zone” for home air conditioning systems, because they’ve already put in steady cooling work since late spring and are now trying to keep houses comfortable in some of the harshest conditions. Now is when people are most likely to encounter the need for air conditioning repairs.

A common question that professional HVAC technicians hear is, “Should there be ice on my air conditioner’s coils?” The answer is no, but we understand why people are confused about whether this is normal or not.
After all, the air pushed out of the vents in an air conditioning system feels like it’s chilled, as if it were run across ice. It’s a quick jump from that thought to believing that ice must have some role in air conditioning a space, or at least that ice is a normal byproduct of the cooling process.
It isn’t! In fact, ice along the indoor coils of an air conditioner (the evaporator coils) is a warning sign of a problem. It might be a minor issue. Or it could be a potential catastrophe that will eventually require replacing the whole air conditioning system. We recommend you call for our professional repair service to look into your air conditioning system in Fort Worth, TX to see what needs to be done.

Do you know the key to achieving and maintaining a truly great cooling performance? There’s a hint buried in that question: maintaining. If you are serious about getting the very best performance that your home cooling system has to offer, then you absolutely must schedule routine air conditioning maintenance. Even professional maintenance alone is not really enough to get the most out of your AC, though. That is because maintenance happens annually, and your air filter needs changing more frequently than that.
Now, we know what you’re thinking. My air conditioner is working just fine. I schedule maintenance. There’s no way that simply changing a filter is that important. Well, we are the North Dallas AC experts that homeowners around here know that they can trust, and we really need to stress just how vital a fresh filter is! Believe it or not, and hopefully you will after reading this post, failure to keep a fresh filter in place can really set your AC and your back.

Since you spend a great deal of time with an air conditioning system running in your house during the summer, you’ll be familiar with the different sounds that come from the cabinets. One of these is the occasional dripping of water. So it might not surprise you to see water dripping from the indoor cabinet.
But should you see water dripping from your AC? The short answer: no. An air conditioner that’s leaking water has some issue wrong with the condensate drainage. We’ll get into what that means and what to do about it below.

How’s your home’s air quality treating you?
You might not think of it this way, but air quality is a huge part of your indoor comfort. For example, if you or a family member regularly live with allergies and asthma attacks in the home, you might be able to bring relief by improving air quality.
Even if you aren’t susceptible to these air quality problems, the causes of poor air quality can sometimes be linked to lowered efficiency in your HVAC system. In other words, fixing these air quality issues could actually save you money.
In this post, we’ll go through four steps you can take to start cleaning up your air.

Does it feel like you’re constantly dusting off your shelves and tables? Is it triggering your allergy and asthma symptoms? Cleaning the home is a job that will never end, of course, but we’re not going to ignore the common complaint that we hear from homeowners:
“Why does my home seem so dusty lately?”

We can’t prevent dust from entering your home any more than you can, but there’s a surprising number of things you can do to prevent dust from endlessly circulating in your home.
