A Gentle Reminder in Strange Days of AC Maintenance

Monday, March 8th, 2021

air-conditioner-condenser-3D-renderA few weeks ago, we posted about air conditioning maintenance, which is an important job to have done each spring to prepare a residential cooling system for the rigors of another summer. And then the big chill hit Texas, and we have to wonder if the people who read that original post still have AC maintenance in mind. We wouldn’t be surprised if you and everyone else was strictly focused on heating systems. We certainly were busy helping customers handle heating difficulties during this time.

We want to bring up AC maintenance again because even with the bizarre cold weather we’ve just gone through, the march toward summer has already begun, and you still need to have air conditioning maintenance in Katy, TX to get you off to the best start.

Too Early to Schedule HVAC Maintenance? Not at All!

Monday, February 8th, 2021

service-blue-markerIt’s early February, and the ol’ groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter. However, the groundhog has been right approximately 30% of the time, which is less than chance, and we live in Texas where we generally don’t need to worry about long winters.

And that’s a lengthy way of saying that we’re already heading toward warmer weather here and it’s time to think about scheduling routine HVAC maintenance so your AC is ready to go into spring. But you shouldn’t just abandon your heater. Take advantage of this slower time to have any lingering heater repair in Katy, TX taken care of. In fact, why not arrange for both at one time? Call us up about your heating problems and ask to get on the schedule for HVAC maintenance through our Safety and Efficiency Cool Club.

autumn-backgroundIn other parts of the country, winter is a time when air conditioning systems shut down for months until needed again in the spring. We don’t have that kind of climate in Texas!

We have some advice for how to best take care of your air conditioner during the fall and winter, it’s “off-season” but not the AC’s “vacation season.” We offer HVAC service in Sugar Land, TX to help you help your AC and prevent unpleasant surprises this year and a good start to the next.

Take Care of Spring AC Maintenance Soon!

Monday, April 6th, 2020

filling-in-calendarWe’re a full-service HVAC company, and that means we work with all heating and air conditioning systems. But because this is Texas, we handle more AC services.

This makes it extra important to remember to schedule spring air conditioning maintenance in Katy, TX each year.

And … it’s spring again! It’s time to call our technicians to have your AC tuned-up and inspected to get it ready for the summer heat.

Planning for Mid-Year: Do You Need to Replace Your AC?

Monday, February 24th, 2020

old-air-conditionerHandling air conditioning repairs, maintenance, and replacements are the biggest part of our job because the weather in Katy means ACs in homes do plenty of work around the year. Your home’s air conditioning system never gets an extended vacation and probably must turn on a few times each month of winter.

Now that we’re heading toward the big heat of the year, it’s a good time to consider getting a new air conditioner if your current one is too old or in poor shape.

You never want to jump to a hasty conclusion about a project as large and with so many long-term effects as replacing a central air conditioner. We recommend you call our technicians to inspect the AC in your house as part of regular spring maintenance. Our technicians can give you an expert opinion on replacement and if repairs are still cost-effective.

Below we’ve listed criteria used in making the choice about an air conditioner replacement:

Regular Maintenance and the Lifespan of Your AC System

Monday, April 8th, 2019

air-conditioning-manometer-pressure-refrigerantWe are big believers in routine maintenance inspections and tune-ups for air conditioning systems.

But here in Katy, TX, we’re especially aware of how much a hard-working air conditioner needs maintenance. An AC in our hot weather takes on a heavy work load each year.

We’re focusing on a specific benefit of routine maintenance in this post, which is what it does for an air conditioner’s lifespan.

“No Cool” From an AC Is No Fun: How to Avoid It

Monday, March 25th, 2019

man-in-front-of-fan-on-a-hot-dayWhen HVAC experts talk about the worst type of problems an air conditioning system can run into, they use the phrase “no cool”—an air conditioning system that isn’t cooling a house. The whole AC may have shut down and no air at all is coming from the vents. Or air is coming from the vents but it’s not cool.

In southern Texas, this isn’t a situation anyone wants to be in during one of our (many) hot days. A big part of our job at AC Comfort is rescuing homes in hot weather with air conditioning repair in Katy, TX. We’re always glad to help our customers, but we also want them to avoid trouble with a broken AC in the first place. There’s no way to stop all AC “no cool” emergencies, but you can prevent the majority of them with some planning and a bit of help from us.

March Is a Great Time for AC Maintenance

Monday, February 25th, 2019

air-conditioner-on-leavesIn some parts of the country, air conditioners go on long vacations during the winter. There are distinct seasons for air conditioning, and AC owners usually prepare their cooling systems for the summer weather with a professional spring tune-up. Or at least they should; any quality HVAC contractor recommends it and offers a regular maintenance program to make it easier for customers.

Here in Texas, air conditioning doesn’t have a “season.” It gets used more often at some points of the year, less in others—but it’s necessary almost every month. When is the best time to schedule regular maintenance? It’s not much different from any other place: spring is the ideal time, and you might as well take advantage of March to call an HVAC contractor in Houston, TX to schedule your annual AC maintenance.
