Making Sure That it’s Not a Dirty Air Filter

Your air filter plays a crucial role in safeguarding your air conditioner from dust and debris that could impair its efficiency. Often, restoring your AC to optimal performance involves simply replacing the old filter with a new, clean one. We’ll show you how to regularly inspect and replace your filter with the correct size and the right specs for your use. If you're enrolled in our maintenance plan, we'll routinely check and replace the AC air filter during our tune-up visits. The cost of replacing a dirty air filter is minimal, yet it can significantly enhance the performance and lifespan of your AC system, especially if it's done regularly.

When Low Levels of AC Refrigerant Will Cause Problems

If your air conditioner seems to be running fine but isn't cooling your home as effectively as it should, the issue may be with the refrigerant. Refrigerant plays a vital role in cooling the coils and regulating the airflow through your ductwork. If the refrigerant level drops below optimal levels, it can lead to cooling problems. Our team will assess the refrigerant levels, replenish any losses, and check for possible leaks. We'll then discuss available options for addressing any issues we find. Our technicians are skilled in identifying refrigerant problems and adhere to EPA standards for refrigerant use and disposal.

Inspecting the Capacitors for Leaks, Bulging or Running a Diagnostic Test

Capacitors play a crucial role in the electrical system of your air conditioner. A faulty capacitor can cause a variety of issues that can affect the smooth operation of your AC unit and components. While they are essential for maintaining a consistent flow of electricity to your system, capacitors have a limited lifespan. Typically, they can last for many years before needing replacement. Considering the age of your air conditioner and any available service records, we'll assess the condition of your capacitors. Signs of damage such as bulging, rust, or leakage may indicate a problem, while in other cases, diagnostic testing is required to evaluate your capacitor’s condition. It’s not uncommon for us to routinely replace malfunctioning capacitors with new ones and restore your AC system's functionality.

Your Air Conditioning Unit’s Outdoor Coils Might Need Cleaning

Regular cleaning of your outdoor unit's coils is essential. Because the outdoor units are the most exposed to the outdoor elements, they can get dirty or damaged. During your air conditioning service call, we'll inspect the cleanliness and condition of your cooling coils. If you sign up for routine maintenance for your AC system, you’ll be ensured that your coils will be cleaned and prepared for the extended summers typical here in Houston. If we identify issues with your outdoor coils, we'll promptly clean them to restore optimal functionality to your cooling system.

When Your Blower Fan is Making Noise or Not Working

Occasionally, a blower fan in an AC unit may cease functioning or produce unusual and loud clanging noises. While blower fans are typically dependable, issues such as motor failure or fan imbalance can happen and affect performance. (A worn-out capacitor could also contribute to the problems with a blower fan not working.) During our inspection, we examine components like the control board, bearings, and thermostat. Following diagnosis, we'll provide a detailed explanation of the issues and provide some solutions to fix them. Rest assured, we'll work to swiftly address the problem and restore your AC unit's blower fan functionality.

A Thermostat’s Ability to Communicate With Your AC Unit is Causing the Problem

Thermostats serve as the crucial link between homeowners and their air conditioning systems. With rapid advancements, today’s thermostats offer diverse features to ensure even and efficient cooling for your Houston home. A malfunctioning thermostat can disrupt your entire AC system, especially if you have a smart home setup. Our technical expertise extends to all types of thermostats and smart home systems. Whether your thermostat needs repair or replacement, we're equipped to provide solutions to get you back in control of your home’s comfort levels.

Checking the Condensation Drains For Leaks or Clogs

Condensation lines are designed to channel moisture away from your AC system to prevent leaks and water damage. Condensation occurs when warm air meets a cold surface, a natural process in functioning AC systems. To avoid potential issues, inspecting the condensation drain regularly is crucial. We'll clean the drain to restore proper function if clogs or damage are detected. Additionally, we include condensation drain checks as part of our annual maintenance calls to ensure your system isn’t dealing with the problem in the future.

A Broken Defrost Control Can Cause Icy Build-Up on Coils

If ice is accumulating on your coils, the issue may be your defrost control system. This sophisticated component of your air conditioning system is responsible for shutting off the AC when frost is detected on the coils. Once the ice is defrosted, the system resumes operation to circulate cool air throughout your home. A malfunctioning defrost control can lead to frost buildup and affect your entire AC system. Should this be the case with your coils, we’ll address the issue by repairing or replacing the defrost control unit.

Is the Compressor Having Problems Due to Its Age and Use

Your compressor stands at the center of your entire AC system. They are designed to endure the sweltering summers of Houston for many years. Yet, even these resilient components can exhibit signs of wear after 10 to 15 years of hard use in Texas summers. This means that you’ll be needing repairs or a replacement. Various factors influence a compressor's performance and lifespan. If you notice unusual noises, inadequate amounts of cool air, or a complete failure of the system, don't hesitate to reach out to us. We'll conduct a comprehensive diagnostic of your entire system to determine whether a repair or replacement compressor is warranted.

With advancements in HVAC technology, opting for a new compressor may offer a more cost-effective solution because of the potential energy savings. We'll give you guidance on the best course of action to restore your malfunctioning AC system back to working order.
