Experts in Heating Repair – Tomball, Spring, and Beyond

There are plenty of experts in heating repair in Tomball, Spring, and the whole Houston area, but sometimes, you want to do something yourself. Your heating unit is usually quiet and efficient, running in the background, warming or cooling your home without fuss or noise — but that just makes it that much more stressful when it fails. Mercifully, there are steps you can take to avoid the stress of such an event happening right when you need it the most.

Regular maintenance can not only keep it running and keep you at the right temperature, but it can save you money in the long run by avoiding major breakdowns and replacements. A malfunctioning heater or air conditioner can even put your home in danger if leaking fuel or chemicals or faulty electrical or natural gas connections occur.

Regular Maintenance
In almost all circumstances, you should call a heating and AC repair Tomball professional if you believe that your heater or AC unit require repair — they’re quite complex devices, after all. At least once a year, a professional should come in and examine your unit(s), giving them a full clean and lube, tightening connections and checking settings and controls to make sure everything is functioning properly. This will aid in preventing a huge breakdown at an inopportune moment. Be sure to schedule this inspection during the spring or fall — the less-busy seasons for heating and AC repairmen.

Doing It Yourself
That said, there are things that you can do once each month all year round to keep your heater and AC running effectively and to avoid an expensive repair bill. Before you do anything to your HVAC units, be sure to disconnect the power. Once you’ve done that, remove, clean, and replace the filter. A blocked filter prevents the unit from operating efficiently and can also shorten the unit’s functional lifespan. Run the filter under warm water to clean it. If you have filters away from the unit, replace them monthly as well, and clean the ductwork every six months as well. Also, every six months, go around and make sure that no casual movements of drapes, furniture, or other objects have blocked any vents.

Before your call your local Tomball AC repairman, check the power source on your air conditioner. Look for burnt or shorted cords and plugs, blown fuses, tripped circuit breakers, and make sure that the unit is properly turned on. Many, many people have been embarrassed and paid significant fees for calling out a repairman only to have him flip a switch, collect his money, and leave.
