We at Mr. Reliable Heating & Air know how critical it is to regularly perform maintenance on your heating and air conditioner. Routine maintenance is key to staying cool during the scorching Texan summer. When it heats up in The Woodlands, TX, residents with pulmonary issues like asthma are at a greater risk of having severe symptoms. Dehydration, heatstroke, and breathing difficulties are just a few of the dangers summer poses to the Woodlands community.
That is why we at Mr. Reliable Heating & Air urge all of our clients to have their air conditioning unit undergo routine maintenance from one of our NATE-Certified technicians. Service also helps prevent heating and AC repairs throughout the year and saves you money on your electricity bills.
One of the checks done during the service performed is an inspection of changing your air filters. If layers of dirt, mold, or frost cover the filters then you may need a heating and AC repair.
Heating and AC Repair Maintenance
Mr. Reliable Heating & Air inspect the air filters (cleans or replaces them), evaporator coils, compressor, condenser, and furnace. The insides and important components of your air conditioner will all be cleaned too.
Refrigerant levels will also be monitored and filled to the precise, adequate amount and refilled if they are Routine maintenance catches any problems and provides you the opportunity to have them fixed on the same day. This reduces the likelihood of a breakdown and the need for expensive heating and AC repair.
Another task completed during all heating and AC repair services is a visual inspection of your air ducts. Mr. Reliable’s specialists use a portable or truck-mounted negative air machine to remove any dust and dirt in the ducts, along with repairing any holes or gaps that have affected the ducts and joints. As time goes on the joints come loosened and left gaps allowing any warm or cool air to escape.
Experts have conducted studies that have found that up to 30 percent of an air conditioner or HVAC’s energy gets wasted as it passes through the ducts. This causes you to waste $3 for every $10 you spend on energy warming or cooling storage spaces. The cost for fixing damaged vents is not low priced but it will be worth it as it will be recouped due to lower energy costs. Consider having a duct cleaning service after any heating and AC repairs are completed.
Do I Really Need a Duct Cleaning, or Heating and AC Repair Service?
Air filters take dust, dirt, pollen, and other pollutants out of your home in The Woodlands, TX. Mr. Reliable Heating & Air knows inspecting your air filters monthly and changing or cleaning them if they are dirty can help you stay comfortable and safe. How often you do this is dependent on multiple variables, but a home with smokers or pets must replace the air filters more often than a home without any pets or smokers.
How dirty your vents impact how often you need to replace the air filters to improve the quality of the air you are breathing in your home. If you notice you are beginning to use the air filters or being replaced more often, it may be time to have your vents cleaned.
The dust in your vents comes from skin flakes from humans and pets, not a comfortable idea of living in your own discarded skin. Many other unhygienic surprises are in the vents. Technicians that provide heating and AC repair have found so many yucky things in air ducts: mold and algae, insect nests, and also rodents! Cleaning the vents and making sure these pollutants are not in your ducts should be on top of your to-do list if you or your family have any respiratory problems such as asthma or bronchitis.
The Benefits of a Heating and AC Repair and Duct Cleaning Service
After a duct cleaning service, the air quality in your home will get a lot better, because less debris and dirt in your air vents will be present in the air in your home. The functionality of your air conditioner or furnace gets better after the air ducts are free from any blockages T.
Your air filters are cleaner, allowing additional warm air to be blown over the evaporator coils. The coils are now able to take in more heat from the hot air, increasing the cooling effect of your air conditioner in the Woodlands. You will find that less dirt collects onto the coils reducing any dirt layer on them. This also improves the functionality of your unit, as any layers act as an insulator, restricting heat transfer between the hot air and evaporator coils. Another benefit you will see in the Woodlands is a reduction in humidity because the more heat extracted from the warm air, the less moisture that resides in your house.
The improved functionality will result in extending the working life of your air conditioner or HVAC in the Woodlands. There will be less wear and tear on every part and they won’t be working as hard. This reduces the chance that the parts will overheat and burn out.

What Technology Is Used in a Duct Cleaning Service?
Before cleaning a video camera on the end of a long tube is used to view all the ductwork, this way the technician can see where any mold, pests, or obstructions may be hiding. A portable or truck-mounted negative air machine is connected to your ducts, creating a suction force in the ductwork. Any hard-to-remove material is dislodged by an agitation device, like a rotary brush.
