The summer heat can be brutal, especially if you live here in Texas. Prepare yourself and your family this summer by making sure your air conditioning unit is in tip top shape, before the weather turns.
Being prepared ahead of time with a professional air conditioning system inspection will save you from having to deal with the heat!
Some of the a/c units that are very common here in Texas is called a “Heat Pump”. This type of unit is different from the electric heat or gas furnace used to heat the house in the winter. A heat pump uses the outside compressor unit in the winter as well as in the summer. So in this case it is more important to have regular professional service performed on this type of unit.
Some issues that customers typically have is using cheap spun glass filters that don’t capture very much dirt and dust. This allows the inside evaporator coil to get dirty. Then you are recycling dirty air throughout the house. Use a quality paper pleated filter to keep your system much cleaner. Remember to change your filters at least every 3 months.
It’s important to have your AC unit inspected and serviced every year by a regular licensed a/c specialist.
Here in Texas a properly operating a/c unit is a necessity and proper service will help your a/c unit last longer and cost you less money over the years.
