4 Common Issues with Air Conditioning and How to Prevent ThemSpring was a little slow to show itself in Southeast Texas this year. You may have spent spring break huddled in front of your fireplace, but summer will return! Eventually.

Have You Checked Your HVAC?

Perhaps you haven’t turned on your air conditioning (A/C) unit in a few months, but it’s possibly the most important appliance in your house. Your annual/bi-annual maintenance visit can reduce your risks of HVAC problems. Let’s examine common A/C issues and ways to prevent them from happening this year. You turn your air conditioning on to check it out and…

  1. It Doesn’t Turn On.
    DIY (Do-it-yourself): Check your thermostat. It should be set to “cool.” Then inspect the wiring from the unit to the outlet to see if there is fraying or damage. Finally, check the box for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Reset the power then try again. If none of this works, call 281-651-5484 or 936-271-2030.
  2. It Worked, But Later the Cool Air Got Warm.
    DIY: Your HVAC unit has two fans; the blower fan and the condenser fan. Try unplugging the unit and checking the fan and filter for blockage. If the filter is dirty, clean or replace it. If that doesn’t work, call 281-651-5484 or 936-271-2030.
  3. The Air Smells Moldy.
    In our neck of The Woodlands, this is a common problem but not an easy fix. Even if you can’t see the mold, it shouldn’t be contaminating the air your family breathes. Call 281-651-5484 or 936-271-2030.
