During the chilly nights of winter and the roasting daytime temperatures of summer, your home’s heating and AC systems are working hard. This stress of heavy operation to keep you comfortable is often the point at which any weaknesses become a factor, and you may need to call Mr. Reliable Heating & Air for emergency heating and AC repair in Cypress, TX. The compressor may overwork, or be damaged by the insufficient refrigerant in circulation, or the air handling system that moves comfortable air around your home may experience a fan motor or drive belt issue that keeps your home from receiving the heat or cool it needs, even if the rest of the system is operational. Our HVAC experts arrive 24/7 to make things right, in well-stocked vehicles that contain the parts and equipment necessary for most common repairs so we can get the job done in one visit.
Expert Diagnosticians Make Quick Work of Your Emergency Heating and AC Repair
The key to emergency heating and AC repair is HVAC specialists well-trained to service all makes and models. They also need to be skilled at diagnosing problems quickly and accurately. They get that ability through years of experience, developing a sense of what’s likely to be wrong and the knowledge to justify that intuitive sense with solid reasoning. When your family’s comfort is at stake and the emergency heating and AC repair visit is unscheduled, it’s important to get your system back up and running quickly and address other contributing causes and problems that could cause subsequent failures as soon as possible.
For example, our HVAC expert may observe that the electrical component that starts the compressor to provide heating and cooling in a heat pump has failed, or is damaged due to an animal nest or debris blown in. Replacing this component can restore operation, but the technician may also notice that your coils need cleaning for efficient operation, or the fan in the outdoor unit is making a noise, and they’ll need attention soon. You can discuss whether these repairs should be tended to right away, or perhaps in the next day or two at a time that’s convenient for you, especially if the original call was late at night.
Repair Items That Stress Your HVAC System Into Failure
Restoring operation can also uncover problems such as the inefficiency of dirty evaporator or condenser coils, a clogged air filter, low refrigerant levels or leaks, lack of insulation on the refrigerant lines leading to and from the house, and clogged ducts that put stress on your system and increase the risk of failure. In particular, replacing the air filter can take a big burden off of your air circulating fan motor and belt, but they may be worn enough that they need replacing soon.
Efficiency-related problems cause the system to operate more frequently to achieve the same results that a clean, well-functioning system could do in a relaxed fashion, and multiple components may need checking, repair, or even replacement, such as the compressor or contactor. Of course, once your system is operating, you may want to risk another emergency heating and AC repair if these worn components give out, and plan more comprehensive repairs and maintenance after the heavy usage season is past. Your HVAC expert can help you balance your considerations with the unit’s condition to reach your best compromise.
Pre-Season Maintenance Is the Answer to Reducing Emergency Heating and AC Repair
Many of the problems that arise under heavy use and require emergency heating and AC repair of your HVAC system can be prevented by the careful maintenance practices of our skilled HVAC technicians. They go through each system and perform checks, measuring the current draw of suspect motors to see if they’re wearing out, checking refrigerant pressure and following up with coil cleaning and care and tending to any coil damage or pinhole leaks, and cleaning out the outdoor assembly from animal nests and debris that can affect the operation and component cooling.
Air Filter Obsession
If our team emphasizes the need for you to keep replacing the system air filter in the air handling unit on a regular basis, usually monthly or more if it’s clogged sooner, it’s because they know what a difference it can make. Remember, if the air filter is heavily clogged, not only will you not get the air circulation you need for comfort, the fan motor and belt will get worn faster because they’re working hard to pull air through. The poor air circulation will reduce the effectiveness of your heating and cooling, resulting in more frequent cycling of your heating or cooling system, and wear spread over many components involved in the effort to make your home comfortable. Of course, all this will not only amount to higher repair bills over time, it will also result in higher energy costs, all for the cost of an inexpensive air filter.
Duct Cleaning Service
Another factor our emergency heating and AC repair technicians may note is reduced duct capacity due to the buildup of dust and dirt and other material inside the ducts. It’s amazing how heavily the felt-like material can grow, not only blocking proper airflow but contributing contaminants to the circulating air from their deep collection of unhealthy materials. A duct cleaning service isn’t really an emergency heating and AC repair in most cases, but it is a necessity every few years to keep your air flowing smoothly and your air more breathable. We also offer other HEPA filter, humidity, and pathogen control features if you would like better indoor air quality.
