Summers in Texas are no joke. The heat comes rushing in and along with it high levels of humidity. It’s vital during the hot months that air conditioning units are running properly.

John has a relatively new unit, only four years old. He makes sure to change the air filters in his home regularly and has his HVAC unit cleaned, inspected and serviced at least once a year. He always has an air conditioning company come out in the Spring to prepare for summer and someone comes to look at the unit to prepare for the cooler months during the Fall. His energy bills are consistent and he has a great relationship with a local HVAC company. If something were to happen, he would know exactly who to call.

Mark, on the other hand, has a four-year-old unit but he hasn’t changed his air filters in 6 months and he never gets his unit checked on. One of his actuators isn’t functioning properly (the upstairs is cool but the downstairs won’t seem to get as cold as he would like). He shrugs it off as just the hot summer months working his unit hard. As the months pass, his bill slowly gets bigger and bigger. Again, he ignores this warning sign and lets it continue to operate at less than efficient. Mark’s unit needs some TLC and some routine maintenance could save him a lot in the long run, but he’s put it off and put it off. By the time he finally calls someone in to help, the downstairs won’t seem to cool at all – smack dab in the middle of August. The humidity levels in his house are high and his family is uncomfortable. It’s time for help.

These are two common stories seen in the HVAC world. Regular maintenance and check ups on your unit can prevent a lot of headaches in the future, and prevent you from having to spend a lot of money to fix problems. Mark also neglected to take care of things he could do on his own, like change his air filters.
