What to Do When Your Heater Won’t Heat

Monday, November 30th, 2020

cold-man-with-thermostatYou won’t need heating repair in Cypress, TX as often as you’ll need AC repair. After all, air conditioning systems get used almost throughout the year here, while heaters only run for a short season, usually handling the cold nights. But when you need to have your heater repaired, make sure you call on our technicians and don’t try to do any of the work yourself. And don’t entrust the job to an amateur who can make big promises at suspiciously small prices. They’re suspiciously small for good reason!

However, if your heater stops heating or is only putting out an inadequate amount of warmth, there are some troubleshooting steps you can take to test if the problem is a minor one. These won’t involve you having to get out the tools or do anything that might be harmful. Once you’ve exhausted these steps is when to call us to get that heater heating again.

It’s Almost Fall—But Your Air Conditioner Is Still Hard at Work

Monday, September 7th, 2020

sunshineYou probably know what Texas weather is like—summer temperatures hang around for a long time, even after the official first day of fall. We started the month of September with temperatures in the high 90s. That’s serious air conditioner weather. An air conditioner can lower the temperature inside a house by a maximum of 20°F. So when you have a 96°F day, you almost have to work the AC to the maximum to get the house down to the recommended 78°F for comfort. (Try not to set the thermostat lower than this, especially in intense heat, since it not only wastes energy, it can actually lead to the evaporator coil icing over.)

All this preamble is our way of saying that it’s crucial to watch for signs you need AC repair in Cypress, TX at this time of year. The heat is intense and the air conditioner is working as hard as it ever has after months of consistent operation. This can put an air conditioner into the danger zone, even one that has always gotten spring maintenance. (Just a reminder: the AC needs maintenance every year.)
