Air Conditioners

Air Conditioners

Living in Houston, running your AC system all year long is common. Regular maintenance is recommended to avoid common issues like dirty filters or leaks that can affect the system’s efficiency and safety. Here’s what you need to know about AC repair services in Houston.

Signs Your A/C Needs Repair

There are a few signs that your A/C unit may need repair:

  • Warm airflow
  • Weird sounds
  • Foul smell

Warm airflow can be due to dirty filters or a frozen evaporator coil, while strange sounds may indicate loose-fitting ducts or more severe problems like worn bearings in your compressor or fan motor. A foul smell may stem from dust and mildew in your A/C system’s filters or a clogged drain line.

What Can You Do Before Contacting an A/C Repair Professional?

If you encounter warm airflow or strange sounds, try the following before contacting an AC repair professional:

  • Replace the air filter
  • Check that all vents are securely in place

In case of a frozen evaporator coil, turn off the unit and contact a reliable HVAC company like Nick’s Air Conditioning. To address a foul smell, try replacing the filters and consider installing a more energy-efficient AC unit.

Things to Consider Before Repairing Your AC Unit

Before approving repair work, consider the following:

  • Your AC unit’s age
  • The cost of repairs
  • Its energy efficiency

If your unit is old and the cost of repairs is high, it may be more economical to purchase a new, more efficient unit instead of repairing the old one.
