With the arrival of spring, your air conditioner is going to see increasing use, and just a few short weeks from now, you’ll likely be running it all day every day to fight our high Texas heat. That means now is the time to check your system for any significant problems it may be experiencing. Doing so means you can address the problem before the weather turns too hot: saving you money and effort in the process.
One sure-fire way to check for trouble is to schedule a service session with a trained technician. But you yourself can often determine if something is wrong with your system simply by observing abnormal behavior. And one of the easiest things to check for is a process known as short cycling. If you spot it, you need to call a repair service immediately.

Most calls to our HVAC company (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) are from customers needing to make the temperatures in their homes more tolerable. This is certainly an important factor in your home comfort, and it’s the reason we’re in business, but it’s not the only factor. Comfort depends on a lot of things: a working air conditioner, a comfy mattress and couch, and good indoor air quality.
Unfortunately, many homeowners don’t realize that there’s a lot you can do about poor indoor air quality. Others purchase small portable air purifiers that only help with a small part of your home’s air quality. But the best way to improve your air quality is with a whole-house system. We’ve got some choice selections for whole-home indoor air quality systems below, along with a few expert tips.

We’re here to help you sort through the reasons you might replace your heater, rather than seeking repairs, in today’s quick guide.

Sometimes, a heating system breaks down with little or no warning at all. It goes from working just fine throughout the day and night to suddenly not turning on at all. However, this is quite an uncommon occurrence. Unless there is a sudden failure of an electrical component, a furnace usually gives off some sign that it is on the brink of failure.
Often, this sign of trouble comes in the form of an odd noise. While it may be accompanied by some unusual performance from your heater, the noise is what helps you to narrow down the cause. Today, we hope to show you what those noises may mean and why it is so important to call technicians in at their first sounding off. Don’t ignore these furnace noises!

Adding ducts takes time and effort that may not be worth it to you, especially when there are other options for heating and cooling. And when you have a ductless heating and air conditioning system, it’s just as comfortable and efficient as central air and heat!
